On Sunday night, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos in overtime by a scoreline of 30-27 in what has gone down as one of the best games of the 2016 NFL season so far.
A 32-yard field goal off the upright by Cairo Santos in overtime was enough to give the Chiefs the win against their AFC West rivals and place them in the wildcard spots, but it was wide receiver Tyreek Hill's 86-yard kickoff return after a safety that will go down as the best play of the game.
The 22-year-old did something pretty hilarious with a teammate during the return in the first quarter as well.

After the quick receiver had cleared of all the Broncos players trying to tackle him to the ground, he began running side-by-side with De’Anthony Thomas, to which the two decided to high-five one another before Hill had even entered the endzone to score.

This was definitely a breakout game for the rookie, as he went on to score not only a receiving touchdown but a rushing touchdown as well, to help the Chiefs win and move into the playoff spots in the AFC. To do it against a Super Bowl calibre defense is quite the achievement too. He now has seven total touchdowns on the year.
It's now a guaranteed fact that Hill not only has the skill to score touchdowns but the style to celebrate them with teammates as well.
