A couple months ago, Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf chased down Cardinals defensive back Budda Baker from behind, saving a touchdown.
Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, who has some speed himself, was asked about it and joked he’d never have to make that play because Patrick Mahomes would never throw the interception:

Lo and behold, today Hill found himself chasing down Falcons linebacker Foyesade Oluokun after a Mahomes interception.
It was some bad luck for Hill and the Chiefs that the ball squirted out of bounds after Oluokun fumbled it. Nonetheless, it was an ironic showcase of Hill’s enormous speed in a form he had said he’d never need it.
