SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones made his impact felt in his short time on the field during Saturday’s first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Jones was on the field for 11 snaps in the first quarter of the game. The Chiefs defense was up against 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance who they picked third overall in the draft.

San Francisco fans are undoubtedly excited to see what the rookie can do, but Jones had other ideas.

Jones powered through the offensive lineman’s block attempt and took Lance to the ground for his “Welcome to the NFL” moment.

Lance was able to come back later in the quarter and throw an 80-yard touchdown bomb to Trent Sherfield.

Jones’ sack brings back the ever popular “Big Macs for Sacks” partnership with McDonald’s. Every time the Chiefs get a sack, the next day, Big Macs are buy one, get one free in the Kansas City metro-area.

On August 10, Jones shared that chain restaurant provided the defensive line, or “Sack Nation” with sacks full of Big Macs.

According to his Twitter, the “Big Mac Sack” will be available to purchase on September 12, 2021.

The defensive tackle turned defensive end also took time on the sideline to show sideline reporter Kay Adams one of his new offseason additions that helps with his flexibility.

“I did yoga three times a week and Pilates,” Jones said in a press conference on July 29. “It was fun. At one moment I thought I was gonna to have my [leg] above my neck. It’s been fun. It’s different. I can do some positions now I never thought I could do.”

Jones was hesitant at first to show his favorite position, the downward dog, to Adams in front of so many fans, but after some persuasion he made his way to the ground.

“Chris you didn’t even break a sweat out there, you were out there for 20 seconds,” Adams said.

“25, can you put a little respect, please?” Jones jokingly responded.

The next preseason game will be at University of Phoenix Stadium on Friday August, 20 at 7:00 p.m. against the Arizona Cardinals.
