Alex Smith is doing quite well in his new well and it shows. The Kansas City Chiefs are 2-0 and it is a far cry from where they were last year. Blair Stover has more on the Chiefs’ success below.
Andy Reid, the former Philadelphia Eagles head coach, has worked miracles in the offseason by picking up a few key players and breathing hope into a city that was all but lifeless. The all-red outfits that the players had on Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys drove home just how determined the team is.
Playing 2nd-ranked defense in the league (yes you read that right) for the 2nd week in a row, the Chiefs tacked on another win, albeit a one-point victory. Alex Smith threw for 223 yards and two TD’s and the defense did what it had to do to ensure the team hit 2-0 for the first time since 2005.
Smith, who had a decent game passing, also ran for 57 yards. “When you’re trying to build something, you need to win games like this. These are the games you look at in November and December. You need these types of wins, not only the caliber of the win but the style of win. It’s not always going to be pretty, but you have to find a way to bear down.”
Dwayne Bowe’s TD catch and Ryan Succop’s FG helped KC find a way to get ahead, but it was the defense for the Chiefs that stopped Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys offense from scoring on a late 4th quarter drive. A FG was all the Cowboys could muster up after the defense stonewalled them and, from there, Alex Smith and the Chiefs’ offense would not come back off the field.
Here’s hoping the next game is just as successful!
