VIDEO: Remembering When 340-Pound Dontari Poe Threw a TD Pass Against the Broncos on This Insane Trick Play
By Zach Brunner
As one of the most athletic linemen in NFL history, Dontari Poe is the perfect candidate to run a trick play for a team, and that is exactly what the Kansas City Chiefs did.
However, with his size, power and speed, defenses may have expected Poe to try and run them over for a touchdown, but they were not ready for this pass.
Having already run for a touchdown earlier in the season, the defense was prepared for Poe to take the ball and try to muscle his way in for a touchdown, which is exactly why this trick play was run to perfection.
Poe lined up at quarterback for this play, as possibly the most intimidating player to ever take a direct snap. He secured the snap and faked like he was running forward, which caused the linebacker corps to collapse into the middle to stop him.
However, the 340-pound Poe stopped on a dime to rise up and deliver a Tim Tebow-like jump pass to the wide open receiver in the back of the end zone. As embarrassing as it may have been, the defense never stood a chance.
