Now the Chiefs are 6-3 and will be looked at as at least a wild card team this winter. The 17-13 win at Buffalo put them right in the mix. A win over Seattle this coming week would nearly seal the deal.
It was a hard fought defensive struggle, but Dwayne Bowe – with his best game in two years – helped KC win the big one. Bowe had 8 catches for nearly 100 yards – no touchdowns but some real circus catches on the sidelines that kept the Chiefs alive in the second half. He even fumbled twice on one play, only to get the ball back for a much needed first down. Bowe seems a bit slow, but he can make the big catch at times as he did today.
Quarterback Alex Smith was off and on. Our O line got pushed around most of the game, so Smith had little time to throw, but he made the big plays when he had to and as usual did not turn the ball over.
And our defense played well again.With the NFL’s surprising best pass defense the Chiefs are getting closer to their goal of being a balanced team and playoff winner. Ron Parker was outstanding again as a pass defender making several big plays.
Where did these guys come from?
We still can’t get the big, deep plays from Smith or any receiver, but Charles made a big 40 yard touchdown run that jump started the offense in the 4th quarter to save the day and Alex scored the game winner himself on the ground.
Again credit Andy Reid and Bob Sutton for an important KC win today.
Looking good, Chiefs!
