Bank Shot Santos: Chiefs' kicker jokes about game-winner on Twitter

On Sunday night, Kansas City Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos authored one of the most dramatic endings to an NFL game this season, bouncing his 34-yard field goal try hard off the left upright in the closing seconds of overtime against the Denver Broncos. It took a second before the officials raised their arms to signal it was good and Santos to be mobbed by teammates. If you were on Twitter last night, you saw a string of tweets wondering if Santos called his shot, like a billiards player banking the 8 ball off the side rail before it goes in a corner pocket.
