On a day when Arrowhead Stadium set a world record for being the loudest stadium in the world—and yes, it’s official, according to the Guinness—the Kansas City Chiefs notched an equally as impressive record.
The Chiefs, led by head coach Andy Reid, are now 6-0. Remember—and this is a point that I’ll never cease to bring up this season because of how amazing it truly is—the Chiefs won a total of two games all of last year. They’ve tripled that total so far, and have yet to lose a game.
Oh my, how things have changed at Arrowhead, and Chiefs Kingdom has been the beneficiary.
The Chiefs have been consistent this season, as it’s almost a guarantee that the same cast of characters will step up on a weekly basis.
Jamaal Charles, who has been one of the best running backs in the NFL this season, rushed for two more touchdowns to bring his total to five so far on the year. He also added five receptions for 50 yards on the day.
The defense, once again, was spectacular, holding the Raiders to just 274 total yards and forcing three more turnovers. All three were interceptions off of Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, including a 44-yard interception return for a touchdown by Husain Abdullah. Cornerback Marcus Cooper notched his second interception in as many weeks, and Quintin Demps grabbed another. Demps has intercepted a pass in the past three games.
The Chiefs continued to get after the quarterback, notching 10 sacks total as a team. Tamba Hali led the way with 3.5 sacks and Derrick Johnson added two.
Justin Houston continued his ways, with yet another sack on the year to increase his total to 9.5.
The Chiefs play the Houston Texans next weekend at Arrowhead. The Texans have lost four in a row after getting beat 38-13 today by the St. Louis Rams.
