Titans dial up trick play which results in TD catch for former Purdue OL Dennis Kelly
With the Super Bowl on the line in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs, both teams are willing to pull out all the stops to get a win.
Midway through the second quarter at Arrowhead Stadium, the Titans were clinging to a 10-7 with a chance to take a 10-point advantage, knocking on the door of another touchdown. Tennessee dialed up a trick play, as offensive lineman Dennis Kelly slipped past the defense and was wide open in the end zone.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill hit Kelly in the end zone for the touchdown, putting the Titans back on top by 10.

That touchdown catch was the second of Kelly’s career, a rarity for an offensive lineman. His first was also earlier this year, on a similar play against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Kelly is in his eighth year in the NFL. He spent his first four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before joining the Titans in 2016. He was a former fifth-round NFL Draft after spending his college career at Purdue.
