NFL 2022: Derwin James tackle on Travis Kelce video, WWE spinebuster, Chiefs defeat Chargers
NFL fans caught some WWE action on Friday during the third quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers game.
The moment of madness came when Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce with a 25-yard pass that left him only 10 yards from the end zone.

The monster tight end took off, weaving past two Chargers defenders with only Derwin James standing in the way stopping him from scoring.
Kelce and fans watching on were convinced the superstar Chiefs player was as good as home, but James had other ideas.
James lowered his shoulder and drove it straight into the midsection of Kelce before launching the 198cm and 113kg offensive powerhouse off the ground before rotating him in the air and driving him into the turf.
Social media lost their minds watching the much smaller man pull off a vintage WWE spinebuster in the middle of an NFL game.

DaMichael Cole wrote: “Someone please put Jim Ross over that Derwin James tackle on Travis Kelce. That’s all I request of Twitter tonight.”
Ari Alexander wrote: “Derwin James might be the strongest man alive.”

Mahomes threw two touchdown passes, rookie Jaylen Watson returned an interception 99 yards for the go-ahead fourth-quarter score, and the Chiefs held on to beat the Chargers 27-24
Mahomes finished with 235 yards passing, and Jerick McKinnon and Justin Watson hauled in the TD passes for the Chiefs (2-0), who fell behind 10-0 in the first quarter and spent most of the game playing catch-up.
Jaylen Watson finally put the Chiefs ahead after the Chargers (1-1), answering Matt Ammendola’s tying field goal, marched to the Kansas City 3. Justin Herbert was eyeing tight end Gerald Everett when Watson, a seventh-round pick making his first start, stepped in front of the pass with 10:29 to go and ran nearly untouched the other way to the end zone.
Things became worse for the Chargers (1-1) two series later when Herbert was drilled by Mike Danna delivering a throw. He left the field clutching his side, returned one play later, then threw an incompletion that forced the Chargers to punt.
