Former BYU DB Michael Davis Picks Off Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Former BYU and current Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Michael Davis intercepted a pass that was thrown by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
It was the second play of the third quarter as the Chiefs were facing second down and 10-yards to go when Mahomes threw a pass intended for Tyreek Hill but the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player threw the pass behind Hill and landed in the hands of Davis. He returned the interception 17-yards to the Chiefs 21 yard line. It was Mahomes’ 5th interception of the season.
Three plays later, the Chargers scored a touchdown to take a 14-10 lead over the AFC West Champions.

Unfortunately, the Chiefs scored a touchdown on a 104-yard kickoff return. Davis picked up his second interception of the season and of his career. His first career pick came against the Miami Dolphins on September 29.
Entering the game against the Chiefs, Davis had 37 tackles, including 29 solo tackles and 7 pass deflections. He is in his third NFL season after signing with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent.
Los Angeles will not be playing the postseason with their 5-10 record, but is playing for pride.
