Trevone Boykin’s NFL debut was anything but spectacular until he took the field with the Seattle Seahawks for one last drive.
Seattle trailed Kansas City 16-9 with 1:07 remaining in the contest, when Boykin and the Seahawks took the field with 88 yards to go to try and tie the game up with a touchdown and two point conversion.
Boykin completed passes of 18, 1, and 32 yards, to set up a final-second hail mary attempt from the Chiefs’ 37-yardline. That’s when this happened.

Trevone Boykin converts the deep ball at the buzzer! #SEAvsKC https://t.co/vYt2OYzfG0
Frog fans have seen stuff like this quite often from Boykin, but it was the NFL’s first true look at what the TCU alum can do. Seattle converted the two-point attempt and won the game 17-16.
On the day, Boykin completed 16 of his 26 pass attempts for 188 yards and one touchdown, with no interceptions. He also rushed three times for 21 yards.
It was a fantastic first step towards solidifying himself as Russell Wilson’s backup this season over Jake Heaps (the former BYU, Kansas, and Miami quarterback).
We’ll have a full ‘Frogs in the NFL’ post once the first week of the preseason is over.
