Dexter McCluster, Kansas City Chiefs put moves on San Diego Chargers

One of the best plays of NFL Week 1 came just before halftime in the second game of the "Monday Night Football" doubleheader: Dexter McCluster of the Kansas City Chiefs busted a 94-yard punt return for a touchdown as the Chiefs beat the San Diego Chargers, 21-14.

"Quicker than fast" was Mike Mayock's NFL Draft Day observation about McCluster, a 5-8, 172-pounder out of Ole Miss who was the Chiefs' 36th overall pick (second round):

It's convenient that, with McCluster (whose return was the longest in Chiefs history) and Javier Arenas, Kansas City has a lethal return game, since the offense managed only 68 passing yards (the longest 16 yards).

Give McCluster credit for making a couple of moves and getting to the outside - but that was horrible punt coverage by the Chargers. Guy was untouched. Watch it and you see a near perfect outside lane set up by the Chiefs return team. Great execution by the Chiefs - lousy by the Chargers they all bunched to the inside.
