It might have taken a little longer than Kansas City Chiefs fans had originally predicted and hoped for, but rookie wideout Mecole Hardman has finally made a cameo in Andy Reid's offense. After being held without a catch in KC's Week 1 tilt, the Georgia product flashed his apparent talent and elite speed by hauling in his first career touchdown reception on Sunday on a perfectly placed 42-yard deep ball from Patrick Mahomes to give the Chiefs the lead over the Oakland Raiders in the second quarter.
What you just witnessed was a simple pitch and catch from a quarterback and his wide receiver. No big deal.
Something tell us this will not be the last time we find ourselves writing of a Mahomes-to-Hardman TD connection or an inch-perfect Kelce conversion in 2019. That's just how life is for the reigning NFL MVP.
