His touchdown put the Chiefs up 21-7 and ultimately proved to be the winning score, as the team held on for a 21-14 victory. Officially, McCluster returned three punts for 100 yards in the game, giving him a league-leading average of 33.3 yards per return.
McCluster's return went for 94 yards, making it the longest punt return in Chiefs' history.
The previous record was held by Dante Hall for his famed 93 yard touchdown against the Denver Broncos in 2003, in which Hall repeatedly avoided defenders inside the 10-yard line before breaking free for the game winning score.
The last Chief to win a special teams award was Jamaal Charles for his kickoff return against the Pittsburgh Steelers last November.
