He had another impressive catch that setup the Chargers' first score as well:
According to ESPN, Mike Williams had an "expected catch percentage" of just under 50% (49.8) in his first nine targets and actually caught 88.9% of those balls thrown his way.
He had his eight catches for 113 yards done by the third quarter, with the Chargers holding a field goal lead, but the Chiefs came back and won 27-24.
His third-quarter TD catch was a seventh at Arrowhead Stadium in KC, which is the most by a visiting player there.
