In this edition, we’re looking back at the most memorable moments from rookie tailback Kareem Hunt’s rookie season.

Hunt took the league by storm in 2017, tallying 246 yards from scrimmage in Kansas City’s season-opener at New England – the most ever in a player’s professional debut. He went on to amass at least 100 yards of offense in each of his first seven games - also an NFL record - before breaking the franchise mark for rushing yards by a rookie in Week 15.

And he didn’t stop there, as Hunt became just the sixth rookie in the Super Bowl Era to lead the league in rushing with 1,327 yards on the ground.  

It was a remarkable season for the Chiefs’ third-round pick, and at just 22-years-old, there could be plenty more to come.

Here are the most memorable moments from Hunt’s rookie campaign.
