Chiefs vs. Cowboys Game Recap

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City 17 Dallas 16

The Dallas Cowboys came into the home opener for the Kansas City Chiefs and walked away with a loss.

For the Chiefs, it is the first time they have started 2-0 since 2010, and that was the year they won the AFC West. This was a good game for both teams and it went down to the wire, as the Cowboys got the ball back with 30 seconds left and were not able to get anything to happen and the Chiefs open at home with a victory over Dallas.

Andy Reid and company could not have had a better home coming than this. The crowd was a huge factor as they made hearing on the field difficult for Romo. Alex Smith was the leading rusher with 57 yards, as Jamaal Charles could not get anything really rolling until late in the game. Dwayne Bowe and Smith connected several times, once for a score. The defense was able to sack Romo twice and both times by the second year player Dontari Poe as they held the Cowboys to 318 total yards.

Dallas was able to move the ball through the air with Dez Bryant racking up 141 yards receiving and one touchdown. DeMarco Murray was not able to get a ground game going as he was held to just 25 yards. But the big killer for this defense was the turnovers as the Chiefs forced two during the game.

All in all this was a hard-fought game and the Chiefs showed that they are the real deal this year. They come up on a short week with a Thursday night matchup against the very fast-paced Eagles.

    You said Cowboys would beat us and we would lose Thursday. Meaning you believed we are a team that should be 1-3 by this time next week. Now we are the real deal??

    After a week of reading everything I could find tagged with the name “Chiefs”, I knew that this was a very winnable game for us. There was no way Smith and the offense were gonna give up 6 turnovers.
    The media loves to hate KC and then make excuses as to why they were wrong about us half-way through the season. We could win every game and there’d still be a reason we weren’t as good as Denver or San Fran (even though I don’t see us going all ’72 Dolphins).
    I must admit though, it does feel good to prove the the media wrong.
