When reminiscing about the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV win over the San Francisco 49ers, many will point to quarterback Patrick Mahomes hitting running back Damien Williams for the game-sealing touchdown. However, you have to give credit to the man who set the whole scene: Sammy Watkins. The former 2014 first-round pick put the Chiefs in the red zone by absolutely torching stud cornerback Richard Sherman on a catch-and-run that begs for repeat viewings.

That was a career-redeemer for Watkins. Once viewed as a draft bust, Watkins showed up when it mattered the most. In the Super Bowl, Watkins caught 5-6 targets for 98 yards, second only to Tyreek Hill's 105.

Put some respect on Watkins' name. He made Sherman, one of the best cornerbacks of his generation, look tragically foolish -- and the rest is history.
