Sammy Watkins talked on Friday about how he thought he was going to have his best NFL season. That remains to be seen, but he’s off to a pretty good start after his 68-yard catch on the Chiefs’ first drive. He took a short pass and outran defenders to the end zone.

Patrick Mahomes had seven opening-drive passing touchdowns last season, and is 1-for-1 in 2019.
According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Watkins reached a max speed of 21.33 mph on his 68-yard touchdown, eighth-fastest by any player since the start of the 2018 season.
