Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is already in midseason form, burning a former teammate to a touchdown.
The Chiefs face the Minnesota Vikings in their final preseason tuneup, but that hasn’t stopped Andy Reid from showcasing some of the offensive star power Kansas City has to offer.
On the game’s opening run, starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes hit top wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who scored a touch-line touchdown, and former teammate Bashaud Breeland never had a chance.
Chiefs: The Patrick Mahomes-Tyreek Hill connection is as strong as ever
Cheetah on a go route? Good luck to almost every corner, even one of Breeland’s caliber. Breeland knew all too well about the Chiefs offense, given that he spent the previous two seasons in Kansas City. It did not even help to improve his odds of covering Hill.
The veteran cornerback counted a total of 86 tackles, 17 passing defenses, four interceptions, three fumbles and one forced fumble in his two years at Kansas City, which included a Super Bowl 54 title.
This offseason, Breeland was not signed by the Chiefs again, opening the door for him to sign a $ 3 million one-year deal with the Vikings.
Yes, it’s the preseason, but the Chiefs showed that the Mahomes-to-Hill connection is still as dangerous as ever with the normal season beginning in the coming weeks.
