Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams had a career game against division rivals Las Vegas Raiders in the Chiefs’ 41-14 win in Week 10.
Williams was only 43 yards down on 11 carries, but he also overturned nine catches for 101 yards and a receiving touchdown. The total number of yards received is more than half the yards he has accumulated through the air in a single season in his career to date. His season high before 2021 was 167, which it hit in 2019. This season, Williams already has 271 yards with 31 catches according to the Pro Football Reference.
Part of Williams’ big day in the air included a 38-yard touchdown from quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the fourth quarter that saw Williams jump over Raiders Safety Jonathan Abrams to land the contested catch in the end zone.
The catch was a bit demoralizing for someone like Abrams, who should never give up a catch like this on a running back.
To make matters worse, Williams trolled Abrams on social media after the Blowout victory.

After the win, Williams posted a picture on Twitter of getting the touchdown over Abrams, with a caption that was nothing more than two happy devil emojis.
The post certainly wasn’t a direct shot at Abrams, but Williams probably just shared a great moment in his career. Still, it was a troll job for Williams, albeit unintentionally.
During his press conference on Monday November 15, head coach Andy Reid spoke about how the physicality of Williams in the back area affects the game around him.
