KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jalen Carter was close. So close.
Just before the end of the first half on Monday night, Patrick Mahomes spiked the football to stop the clock with 2 seconds left so Harrison Butker could drill a 43-yard field goal to extend their lead.
But on the spike, rookie Jalen Carter dove between the legs of center Creed Humphrey and nearly pulled off what would have been a wild interception in the Eagles’ eventual 21-17 win at Arrowhead Stadium.
