At least according to the record books, the Kansas City Chiefs are the NFL’s top team.
The Chiefs are 7-0 after beating the Houston Texans. Meanwhile, the NFL’s other
unbeaten previously unbeaten team, the Denver Broncos, went to Indianapolis and lost to the Colts.
Andrew Luck beat his predecessor, Peyton Manning, and in the process, he secured the Chiefs’ spot on top of the NFL rankings.
Thanks for the help!
Kansas City’s wins this season have come over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, Tennessee, Titans, Oakland Raiders and just recently against the Houston Texans.
The Chiefs have relied on Jamaal Charles’ ability to run and catch on offense, a great Dave Toub-led special teams, and arguably the best defense in football to arrive at this point.
Alex Smith, for all his detractors, has also been a huge part of the Chiefs’ success. He may not put up superstar numbers, but he manages the offense well, and can make plays with his arm and legs when needed.
Finally, of course, we can’t forget to mention “Big Red” aka Andy Reid, who is easily a Coach Of The Year candidate right now.
Last season the Chiefs went 2-14. This season? Undefeated so far.
The Chiefs play Cleveland and Buffalo before the Week 10 bye week. After that, it’s to Denver to play the aforementioned Broncos.
