While a sold-out Arrowhead Stadium was thrilled about Justin Houston’s 13-yard touchdown on a fumble return Monday night, some TV viewers weren’t quite as happy.
The Chiefs won 29-20, but it seemed like the winning margin would be just three points after Harrison Butker’s kick broke a tie with just seconds left. That gave the Chiefs a 23-20 lead with 4 seconds to play.
Washington received the kickoff and had time for one play, and it tried a multi-lateral concoction that failed miserably. Houston recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown.

That changed a three-point win to a nine-point win, and that affected a lot of people’s fantasy-football leagues and bettors.

Big shoutout to the @Chiefs for covering the spread even thou the game was already won. Appreciate a team that watches out for the betters— Michael Reignier (@michaelreignier) October 3, 2017

Up by six points in fantasy, and literally lost on the last play because of that totally unnecessary fumble recovery touchdown— Pete Alcazar (@Peter_Tim3) October 3, 2017
