His usual postgame video review revealed to Alex Smith something — or more accurately, someone — the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback didn’t see during the biggest play of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“I obviously didn’t see the safety Sean Weatherspoon Womens Jersey live,” Smith said. “There was a lot of traffic in there. It’s a critical error. It’s a huge swing in the game. You can’t have it. It’s a difference-maker.
