Arrowhead Addict is presenting a new weekly award called the Fire Chief Of The Week. Each week, hopefully, a Chiefs player distinguishes themselves by performing in an inspirational way — for either one play or during parts of the game. AA Fire Chief of The Week (AAFC) is not a most valuable player award, but could at times be the same player.
First and foremost, the AAFC is meant to be the most inspirational performer — that player who others feed off of — even if it was for one critical set of plays or downs.
This week’s Fire Chiefs Award goes to:
Jamaal Charles Justin Houston and Ryan Succop
Yes, Jamaal Charles was most definitely the MVP of this contest and played inspired football but, Justin Houston was also the Fire Chief of the game because without the defense turning things around in the second half, this victory never would have happened. Also, without Ryan Succop’s six consecutive field goals, this game would not have been won either.
Charles — 233 yards on 33 carries – 7.1 yards per carry. Charles has 323 rushing yards this season.
Houston — three sacks in this game. Houston has 9.5 sacks in his last eight games.
Succop — six straight field goals without a miss, a team record. Field goals of: 25, 45, 34, 38, 43, and 31.
