Knile Davis’ Playoff Cleats Can Now Be Found in the Hall of Fame

Posted Feb 18, 2016

Davis ran 106 yards to start the NFL playoffs with a touchdown

Everyone remembers the moment now—the first play of the 2015 NFL Playoffs—when Kansas City Chiefs returner Knile Davis took the opening kickoff back 106 yards for a touchdown in Houston.

The return gave Kansas City an early 7-0 lead and allowed Chiefs fans watching around the world to take a collective breath.

Now, those shoes have found their way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The caption reads: “These cleats carried Kansas City Chiefs running back and return man Knile Davis to the fastest touchdown to start a postseason game in NFL history as well as the second-longest kickoff return in postseason history. Davis had a 106-yard return on the opening kickoff of their 2015 Wild Card matchup against the Houston Texans. The score spurred a 30-0 victory, the first postseason win for the Chiefs since 1994.”
