The Kansas City Chiefs may have lost on Sunday to the Indianapolis Colts but there were still players who did a good job.
And they are earning their Arrowheads.
Let’s take a look at five Chiefs who earned their Arrowheads in the 19-9 loss.
1. Tamba Hali
Tamba, Tamba, Tamba. The heart of the Chiefs defense once again showed he is one of the best in the business. Hali was constantly putting pressure on Manning, eventually taking the QB down for a strip sack. Hali as usual, showed a lot of heart, playing with a busted chin and covered in his own blood, the Chiefs OLB never let up. He earned 2 arrowheads Sunday.
More after the jump.
2. Tony Moeaki
Rookie TE Tony Moeaki had another good day catching the ball, pulling in 4 receptions for 50 yards. Moeaki has been on fire all year and he added another couple of acrobatic catches today. He is a sure handed pass catcher and an excellent blocker.
If the Chiefs ever get the rest of their receivers going, Moeaki could really flourish.
3. John McGraw
Veteran John McGraw got a lot of playing time Sunday against the Colts and he made the most of it. McGraw had six tackles and an interception in the Chiefs loss. The pick set the Chiefs up in excellent field position but the team failed to find the end zone.
But that wasn’t McGraw’s fault. He gets an arrowhead.
4. Glenn Dorsey
There really can’t be any more doubt. Glenn Dorsey has arrived.
Dorsey had another excellent game Sunday, getting pressure on Manning and stuffing the run. It was a brutal tackle by Dorsey that knocked Colts RB Joseph Addai out of the game. Dorsey had six tackles, one for a loss.
5. Derrick Johnson
DJ continued his pro bowl pace on Sunday. He wasn’t able to reel in what could have been a critical interception but Johnson was once again all over the field. Johnson had nine tackles, two for a loss and a defended pass. He now has 34 tackles and a forced fumble on the season.
Honorable Mentions: Ryan Succop, Romeo Crennel, Jovan Belcher, the entire secondary
