The team that torched New England and Tom Brady. They did however win a big game against the Eagles at Arrowhead. Final score: 27-20.
The Eagles seemed to outplay the Chiefs most of the game. KC had trouble stopping Carson Wentz, the Philly quarterback. He had lots of time to throw way too often – yes, this even with Chiefs six sacks, most at the end of the game.
Chiefs QB Alex Smith was sacked a million times – our O line was not blocking well at all during the first half and much of the second half.
Kareem Hunt, our new super star, was nearly shut out until he had what really was the game turning play…a 50 plus yard run for a touchdown. After Hunt’s big play, Smith, Tyreek Hill and even Travis Kelce pitched in with our defense doing better and getting a couple turnovers including a huge interception late to set up the final touchdown by Kelce on a pitch pass.
That said, it was not pretty.
And thoughts of starting Pat Mahomes began to fill our heads at the end of the first half with the score 6-3 Chiefs.
We had nearly no offense in the first half.
Yet banged up Alex Smith made a brave first down run early in the second half.
He has guts for sure.
So KC got its second wind and pulled off the victory.
It was messy the last 2 minutes with the Eagles getting a touchdown late and recovering an on-side kick with 5 seconds remaining. It gave them a shot at a hail marry…lucky they didn’t get the catch in the end zone….so, not pretty but a win.
The Chiefs need to use their weapons more,
Kelce, Hill and Hunt – then mix in Chris Conley as well.
If this team wants to be a Super Bowl guest they will need to improve on both sides of the ball.
So good win.
Now we have some soft games with the crappy Redskins and nearly as bad it Chargers before we face Oakland and the Steelers.
So yeah, we won.
