A varied offense is the key to any victory.
Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs are locked in a close game with the Houston Texans, so the normally conservative quarterback tried to change his strategy.
Taking a page out of Ryan Fitzpatrick's book, Smith catches the batted pass himself and tries to make something happen before being tackled for a loss. It's a valiant effort, but the key to "the Fitzpatrick" is making the play work on the goal line.
Better luck next time Alex.
