What Had Happened Was: 12/9/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
So, the Oakland Raiders were riding high with a 10-2 record and the top spot in the highly contested AFC West heading into Thursday night. They left Kansas City with a loss and an identical record to the now 10-3 Chiefs. Rookie speedster Tyreek Hill came through once again for Kansas City, as he had both a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown and a 36-yard touchdown reception. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s two of the three touchdowns the Chiefs scored.
Tyreek Hill is the 2nd player this season with a Rec TD and a Punt Return TD in the same game (WIll Fuller – Week 4 vs Titans). pic.twitter.com/aAHpeQrkv8

With this 21-13 win, the Chiefs now lead the division after sweeping the season series. The AFC West, though, is set to have a fantastic finish between the Raiders, Chiefs and third-place Denver Broncos. Stay tuned.
Broncos have to be thrilled. Only one loss back and still face both Chiefs and Raiders.

GO CHECK ALL OF THOSE PROJECTS OUT NOW.
Correction: GO CHECK OUT ALL OF THOSE PROJECTS AFTER YOU FINISH “WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS.”
Thursday was the five-year anniversary of the Chris-Paul-to-the-Los-Angeles-Lakers trade that didn’t happen. It still haunts NBA watchers to this day … well, at least some of them.
Also: Today is the five-year anniversary of the canceled trade that could have sent Chris Paul from then-NBA-owned New Orleans to the Lakers

Everyone should be mad that David Stern vetoed the Chris Paul/Lakers trade because it robbed us of Kobe and CP3 throwing hands on the bench
