The NFL has moments of sheer brilliance that everyone can appreciate.

Whether it be an incredible one-handed catch, perfectly placed touchdown throw, or ankle breaking move by a running back - some things are just pure poetry in motion.

While all those are aesthetically pleasurable to witness, one thing in the NFL reigns supreme: the lesser-spotted fat guy touchdown and Dontari Poe of the Kansas City Chiefs scored an excellent one this weekend. Scroll down to see it..

This wasn't your ordinary fat guy touchdown, the Chiefs actually drew the screen pass up for the 346-lbs Poe and it worked perfectly. Well done Andy Reid.

In the third quarter, the Chiefs found themselves at the Oakland Raiders’ 1-yard line and Poe motioned outside - as a wideout. Smith gets the snap, turns and throws to Poe, who catches it and crashes into the end zone behind his blockers.

Isn't that just the most majestic thing you've seen all year long. 

With that catch, Poe made NFL history by becoming the heaviest player to ever score a receiving touchdown. What a time to be alive.
