    It was good to see them not play down for a change. There is a great nucleus to build on and hopefully this draft can add offensive weapons and depth on D. Go Chiefs.

    The offense did not get tested due to the special teams domination. However, there was enough to be optimistic about. Outside of one horrifically errant pass, Alex Smith played well. He seems to be feeling it, and is definitely getting in rhythm with Bowe.

    Getting DeVito back was very important to this defense. It should be apparent from his absence how important he is to stuffing running plays, and creating opportunities for others on the defensive line. Tyson Jackson is quietly having a very good year, and today was one of his best games as a Chief.

    The next three games are important, but almost nothing is more important than getting this team healthy again. If Houston can return in good health before the playoffs it will certainly improve the Chief’s chances to advance.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      He doesn’t get sacks so it doesn’t seem like it, but Devito’s presense helps the pass rush as well.

      • e_racer

        Exactly correct. Without DeVito, T Jax, and Poe, the team gets run on, thrown on, and the sacks go to nothing.

        The Chiefs need to get their interior lineman healthy, and rested before getting into the playoffs. If you want to look at one reason the production is down then look at the lack of adequate depth at those positions.
