NFL Video: Watch Chiefs Wide Receiver Make an Unbelievable Catch in Final Second
The play of the year may have just occurred in Chicago a few minutes ago, and by one of the league's most unlikely sources.
Watch Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster make an amazing catch on a hail mary pass from quarterback Tyler Palko in the final seconds of the first half.
The play took a lot of concentration, and even more luck for the young wideout and quarterback combination.

One of the best plays of the NFL season occurred in the Windy City today, as a last second gasp by the Chiefs resulted in a touchdown, and gave them a slim lead heading into the locker rooms at halftime.
The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the worst offenses in football. With injuries to several key offensive players, Kansas City is now starting a boatload of backups.
This includes rookie quarterback Tyler Palko, who was really struggling in two starts for the Chiefs so far.
Kansas City looked like being on the verge of another scoreless half, before a last second hail mary was answered.
Palko chucked a 50-yard bomb into the end zone, and when Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher knocked it down, it landed in Chiefs wide receiver Dexter Mccluster's arms.
The play was a miracle for Kansas City fans, and it ended the Chiefs drought of 31 consecutive drives without a touchdown.
The Chiefs now lead the Chicago Bears 7-3 at halftime in Soldier Field, thanks to superb play from their underrated defensive unit, and the amazing hail mary in the final few seconds of the second quarter.
Can Kansas City hold on and beat an elite Chicago Bears squad? We will have to wait and see, but they will head into the locker room feeling pretty lucky after thirty minutes of subpar play from their struggling offense.
