Travis Kelce Shoves Ball Into Opponent's Groin

Tyreek Hill is more than just an explosive receiver and returner.

Tyreek Hill was a fantasy surprise in 2016, as he worked his way into a major role in the Chiefs offense.

With the line of scrimmage set about an inch short of the Kansas City 25-yard-line, the Chiefs wide receiver could be seen lining up with his foot well beyond that mark. That could be effective against the Patriots, who thrive on exploiting individual matchups.

Before leaving with his injury, Hill was having a monster night.

Unfortunately for Hill, that might cost him.

Bumgarner (3-8) gave up six earned runs and 10 hits in five innings - the most runs and hits he's allowed in a game this season. Fulmer went back to Triple-A Charlotte after that start, but rejoined the White Sox when rosters expanded in September.

Although Hill wasn't penalized for the play, he can still be punished once the league looks over the game. However, because of Hill's intentions, he might still feel the brunt of the league.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is one of the best at his position in the National Football League, but he's routinely on the wrong end of boneheaded plays and Thursday night against the New England Patriots was no different. As ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio noted, the playcall apparently came not from head coach Andy Reid or quarterback Alex Smith, but rather from Hill himself.

On defense, the Patriots typically take away the other team's best weapon.
