Chiefs' defensive TD sinks gamblers and Fantasy owners alike on Monday night

The Chiefs and Redskins went toe to toe Monday night, playing an extremely close game that came down to a field-goal attempt with eight seconds left on the clock. Chiefs rookie Harrison Butker drilled the kick, but with four seconds remaining, Washington had at least some hope that a crazy ending could give them the win.

For gamblers though, the Butker kick almost definitely sealed things. Most people bet the line with the Chiefs as 6.5- or 7-point favorites, so the Washington cover was in the bag. With the over/under closing at 47.5, the under also looked to be sealed up with the Chiefs up 23-20.

How did Justin Houston feel as he was about to ruin Fantasy owners' and gamblers' nights?
