Sorensen Punches Ball Out, Thompson Recovers Fumble For Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Former BYU and current Kansas City Chiefs safety Dan Sorensen punched the ball out on a kick return from Texans’ D. Carter. The ball landed into the hands of former Utah State Aggies running back and Chiefs rookie Darwin Thompson.
The play was a part of the huge momentum swing that went the way of the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. Sorensen punched the ball out at the Texans 24-yard line with the ball landing into the hands of Thompson, who took the ball to the Texans six-yard line for an 18-yard return.
The Chiefs trailed 24-14 after scoring two unanswered touchdowns, previously trailing 24-0. When Kansas City got the ball back with favorable field position, three plays later, quarterback Patrick Mahomes found tight end Travis Kelce for a 6-yard touchdown to trim Houston’s lead to 24-21 with 6:37 remaining in the first half.
Sorensen has already made a big play earlier in the game when he stopped a fake punt for the Texans and forced them to turn the ball over on downs.
The Chiefs scored all of their 21 points in the second quarter after the Texans scored 21 unanswered in the opening period and a field goal to start the second quarter.
