Texans' Justin Reid delivers bruising blow to Chiefs' Tyreek Hill to break up catch

Houston Texans safety Justin Reid delivered a bruising blow to Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill in the first quarter of their AFC Divisional Round playoff matchup Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes was looking deep to Hill toward the sideline but the wide receiver apparently didn’t realize that Reid was waiting for him to try catching the ball.

Reid collided with Hill at the right time and broke up a potential catch and 1st down for the Chiefs.

The play also knocked the wind out of Hill. The wide receiver was down for a bit before getting helped to the sideline and then onto the bench.

At that point, Houston led 21-0 after a few miscues from the Chiefs early in the game. A couple of dropped passes and a muffed punt led to Houston scores on the other end.
