Denver quarterback Kyle was 9 of 28 for 117 yards and Blue Springs High School graduate Brandon Lloyd was his leading target – and the former Wildcats all-state standout had just two receptions for 31 yards.
“It was pretty obvious today that the Chiefs made some adjustments to our passing game,” said Lloyd, who was sporting a Kansas City Royals baseball cap as he left Arrowhead Stadium.
“We were able to run the ball, and we ran it well. We just couldn’t punch it into the end zone.”
“(It’s a) huge difference, we’re just a different team right now, playing with a lot of confidence,” said Cassel, who says that confidence is spilling over into his off-field life, and making it a lot easier to call Kansas City home.
“We are embracing the opportunity, myself, my wife, my foundation I work with,” said Cassel. “It’s been fun to grow in the community.”
If Kansas City does not falter, Oakland will be left out of the playoff picture. In a top heavy conference, the West will likely have only one representative, so that puts a high level of importance to every match the Raiders play. Basically, every game from here on out is a playoff contest for the Silver & Black – and should be treated as such.
