Karlaftis was selected by Kansas City in the first round (30th overall pick) in the 2022 NFL Draft after being named a first-team All-B1G selection. Horvath was selected by Los Angeles in the seventh round (260th overall pick). Horvath was a third-team All-B1G selection.
Karlaftis accounted for 1 total tackle, 1 quarterback hit, and a pass breakup in a key rotation piece for Kansas City. Horvath caught 1 reception for 1 yard and a touchdown on 2 targets. This is the second consecutive game where Horvath accounted for a receiving touchdown.
It’s always good when college teammates can continue playing each other in the NFL. Kansas City travels to Indianapolis next, while L.A. plays Jacksonville in Week 3.
