What initially looked like a game destined for a blowout, turned into a nail-biting finish during the NFLs first game in Frankfurt, Germany.
The Kansas City Chiefs raced out to a 21-point halftime lead, but the Miami Dolphins got scores from receiver Cedrick Wilson and running back
Raheem Mostert in the second half to make it a one-score game.Ultimately, the game ended with Dolphins quarterback
Tua Tagovailoa falling on an errant snap on fourth-and-10 to effectively ended the game. Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo brought the house on the play and both the ball and the game slipped right out of Tagovailoas hands as the pressure got to him quickly.

(ASSOCIATED PRESS)Tyreek Hill, who starred for and won a Super Bowl with the Chiefs, was held out of the end zone and to 62 yards on eight catches.
Both defenses came to play as neither quarterback threw for more than 200 yards. Kansas City conceded a rare rushing touchdown — only its fourth of the season — to Mostert in the fourth quarter, while the Dolphins didnt allow Mahomes and company to score in the second half.

In that way, the game ending with the Chiefs defensive stand was perfect. Miami drops to 6-3, and the Chiefs are 7-2. Both teams head into their respective bye weeks.
Hill fumbles, Chiefs take it to the houseThis was the game Hill couldnt wait for.For the first time since being traded to the Dolphins in 2022, Hill faced his former team. The reunion couldnt have gone much worse.
Hill made a living helping the Chiefs light up the scoreboard, and he did so again for old times sake in front of fans in Germany.
Trailing 14-0 with the half winding down, Tagovailoa threw a quick screen to Hill that looked bad from the jump, but ended worse than anyone on the Dolphins sideline couldve imagined.
A play that was going to go for a 7-yard loss, turned into a scoop-and-score touchdown by the Kansas City defense. As Hill tried securing the ball, cornerback
Trent McDuffie stripped him, safety Mike Edwards recovered it and as Hill tried to tackle him, Edwards lateraled the ball to safety Bryan Cook.
Cook ran and high stepped 59 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown that put the Chiefs up 21-0 going into the half.
Through two quarters, Hill had five catches for 39 yards and the Dolphins didnt convert a single third down, going 0-for-5.
On the other side, the Chiefs scored their first opening-drive touchdown of the season when Mahomes connected with
Rashee Rice for an 11-yard score. In the second quarter, Mahomes found Jerick McKinnon for a 17-yard touchdown.
