Former Redskins standout cornerback Kendall Fuller helped put the finishing touches on Kansas City's Super Bowl victory on Sunday night by picking off Jimmy Garoppolo to seal the win for the Chiefs.

Garropolo was having trouble avoiding former Redskins defensive backs in the matchup, throwing his first interception of the night in the second quarter to Bashaud Breeland, and then finished out the final drive with one to Fuller late in the fourth with his team down 31-20. 

Fuller, Washington's third-round pick in 2016 and a Good Counsel and Virginia Tech graduate, was traded from the Redskins to Kansas City in March of 2018 in the trade that brought Alex Smith to the nation's capital. He almost had an interception on the second-to-last drive, too, with San Francisco at midfield and driving for the winning score. Fuller settled for a 2nd down deflection on that play and the 49ers turned the ball over on downs two plays later.  

With the game all-but-over, the turnover was just the icing on the cake to help bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Kansas City for the first time in 50 years.
