The Los Angeles Chargers’ wide receiver Mike Williams’ performance against the Kansas City Chiefs left NBA players LeBron James and Kevin Durant speechless.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers squared off in the AFC West for the opening Thursday Night Football game of the 2022 campaign.
When these teams last faced off, the game went into overtime before Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce scored a long catch-and-run touchdown to win the game.
In the normally thrilling games between the Chiefs and Chargers, there will always be a player who shines out.
Due to Keenan Allen’s hamstring injury ruling him out of this game, Mike Williams, the Chargers’ top wide receiver, shone out in this contest.
Williams had numerous catches, but his deceptive touchdown reception in the third quarter that increased the Chargers’ lead to 17-7 should already be a contender for catch of the year.
Many football enthusiasts who were watching Thursday Night Football were drawn to Williams. NBA players LeBron James and Kevin Durant also gave him high appreciation.

Following the Williams touchdown, that 10-point lead was lost. On a spectacular 41-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes to Justin Watson in the third quarter, the Chiefs were able to close the gap to 17-14.
After scoring a field goal from 19 yards out, Matt Amendola declared the game level. After Jaylen Watson, a rookie cornerback, intercepted Justin Herbert’s pass and returned it 99 yards for the game-winning touchdown, the Chiefs took the lead at 24-17.
Despite the outcome of the game, Williams gained some new supporters as a consequence of his Week 2 effort.
