Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts: Instant Reaction


Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

For the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs their entire season came down to this one game.

Chiefs 44 Colts 45

The Chiefs traveled to Indy to face Andrew Luck and the Colts. Previously these two teams met at Arrowhead where the Colts were able to handle the home team with a 23-7 win over the Chiefs. For the Chiefs the injuries kept piling up as they lost several key players including Jamaal Charles early in the game. Leading the Colts 31 to 10 early in the second half the Colts and a little bit of Luck magic came back to close the game out.

Alex Smith played a great game as he completed 30 of 46 for 378 and 4 scores. Knile Davis lead the team in rushing with 67 yards and one score as well as one through the air, but also exited the game with an injury. Dwayne Bowe was the Chiefs leading receiver as he recorded his first 100 yard game of the season, finishing with 150 yards and 1 touchdown.

Late in the fourth quarter the Colts took their first lead of the game on a huge Luck to T.Y. Hilton touchdown pass making the score  45 to 44.

The Chiefs managed to put on an offensive show as they had 513 total yards. However the Colts also managed to put up 536 total yards as well, which set a post season record for total yards by both teams. Those stats led the the Chiefs demise as Andrew Luck, 29 of 45 for 443, three touchdowns as well as 3 interceptions, was able to kneel down to secure the victory for the Colts.

For the Chiefs the loss may hurt as the streak of being win-less in the post season continues, but this young squad is going to come back and with a fire and a determination.

So while this season may be over, let us not forget where this team started, and 2014 is looking like a great year for Chiefs football.

    It feels like my heart has been ripped out and been put on a spike.

    • UsnCapt2003

      I think all Chiefs Kingdom deserves an apology from the D

      • SM

        Agreed – Our D cost us that game – no heart

    • Hugh25

      Me too. I’m so sick of these kind of losses. I so wish I could pull myself away and root for another team – but can’t see it ever happening.

      • d-block

        But imagine the high you’d feel if we held on. One can only dream..

        • Debby Lamb

          That’s why it hurts so much.

    • Ed

      That’s two of us Debbie. So close but another disappointed .

  • UsnCapt2003

    ANY OF YOU ALEX HATERS TRYTO BLAME ALEX CAN GO FUCK OFF. HE WAS THE MVP OF THIS GAME AND WAS ROBBED BY THE D

    • micah stephenson

      What about that Fumble and momentum he gave them?

      • UsnCapt2003

        Oline was responsible for that

      • Auburn78

        Every qb in the league had fumbled from blindside hits.

      • TAZMOSIS

        Are you saying that the three picks by Luck didn’t help the Chiefs?

        • micah stephenson

          Never said that.

        • micah stephenson

          Those actually helped put us in position for some easy scores.

      • Jshears

        What about the 45 points given up by the “D”? You easily have to be the dumbest fan if you think this lose is on Alex

        • micah stephenson

          I never said it was his fault. The D shud have played better.

        • micah stephenson

          you easily have 2 B the dumbest fan ever if you think he had nothing to do with loss or if you think he got what it takes to take a team to and win the Superbowl.

        • micah stephenson

          This is the NFL! When the D give up 45 pts, you got to score 46. Every game is not a 9-10 ball game. Sometimes you have to score 40-50 pts.

        • micah stephenson

          What about the 45 pts? The D messed up but Alex’s fumble shud count as 7 of the 45.

      • erocks49ers

        What about the 4 TDs and the 31 point lead he gave the defense

      • mattU

        Yeah he should have felt that pressure, but he carried the team otherwise….You are blind if you don’t recognize that. It’s time for you to realize that Alex Smith isn’t the problem with this team. We had a 38-10 lead in the 3rd quarter, so it’s quite obvious the blame falls on the defense in the second half in this one. Smith really only missed on one crucial pass…the one to Gray outside that would have been a touchdown. Watch the replay on that though…Gray let up a bit and wasn’t running full speed: so that miss can’t completely be placed on Smith.

        Nevertheless, that fumbled ball of Smith’s was secured out of bounds anyway.

    • erocks49ers

      Smith was the only player in the game.

      • UsnCapt2003

        You got that right

    • micah stephenson

      I Think they Named Andrew Luck MVP!

      • UsnCapt2003

        Go find another team dude

        • micah stephenson

          Nope! Chiefs foreva!

      • Ed

        Micah, Alex took a grounding call. If he didn’t know where he was on the field or should have taking the sack then give me another QB. Also EmmitbThomas is gone and Daunte I can’t keep up Robinson is out of here.
        I support Alex and don’t care what he did before the grounding people. I care he he lost situation awareness . Go Chiefs

        • Bob Sanders

          Ed, 4 TDs, 0 INTs, 44 points of offensive production, and 118 QB rating…Alex Smith’s intentional grounding under great duress was not the Chiefs problem. That defense was horrible, and I heard the Chiefs had such a great defense I was shocked. Chiefs have some good pieces and will be a perennial contender under Andy Reid, I think. Sorry for the heartbreaking loss and best of luck next year.

  • micah stephenson

    Alex Smith had a decent game but that Fumble, which we lost and Indy scored on, was the difference in the game. And where did he go the 2nd half? He look real good when you got the lead, but when its close or we behind, he don’t look so good anymore.

    • UsnCapt2003

      Had the Oline done their fucking job that would not have happened

      • micah stephenson

        Ok Alex had to scramble, that is built into our offense. He can’t fumble it tho. If Davis fumbles its his fualt. If Bowe fumbles its his fualt. If Alex fumbles….it not his fualt, its somebody else’s fualt. Ok.

        • UsnCapt2003

          Dude Alex played his ass off and has earned a place on this team for a long time to come get over your hate

        • TAZMOSIS

          No. It was Alex.

        • mattU

          What does Alex Smith have to do to convince you he isn’t the problem with this team? Seriously, that fumble was costly but it doesn’t explain the D blowing a 28 point lead in the 2nd half. BTW, scrambling like that isn’t built into an offense. Have you ever played the game before? I admit he should have felt that pressure, but it’s unreasonable to blame him for a blown double-team.

          • d-block

            I think he’s more than likely played the game. He just wants something to point to, where it all went wrong. Don’t blame him. Though that doesn’t exempt his jackass status.

          • micah stephenson

            I said if we win a playoff game or 2 I’d give him a chance. Didn’t happen. He had a decent game but not good enough. Even tho the D blew this, on the last drive you need a fg, the good QBs gone drive down the field and score! Alex sputtered out. The way the d kept giving up scores Alex has to say ok they getting closer and closer with every score, we got to score some pts. Too much pressure for him! HAVING to win is outside of his Game Manager type of ways. We need a QB that has a 40-50 pt a game mentality. Not a just a hand it and pass it to the RB offense, check down, pass deep only once or twice a game mentality.

          • mattU

            He was the first QB in history to throw for 4TDs, no INTs, pass for over 350 yards, and run for over 50, and he did it in a playoff game without Jamaal Charles. I guess that doesn’t deserve any more than a “decent” game moniker from you? Whatever man.

    • erocks49ers

      Where were his starters the second half. You focus on a fumble. He was the offense. How bout those shuffle passes. 4 TDs is far from decent. Give the man credit where its due

      • micah stephenson

        When you lose it was decent not great.

      • micah stephenson

        yeah it was decent. What you think, he had a wonderfully awesome super amazing game? It was decent.

        • d-block

          Take a gander at a dictionary. AS had an excellent game. The defense, on the other hand, smh.

      • micah stephenson

        Yall love some Alex Smith. All I been hearing about is that shuffle pass like that’s the 1st time a shuffle pass has been completed in the nfl.

    • Auburn78

      378 yards 4 TD and 0 int and you put the blame on Smith. No wonder people accuse you of being an idiot.

      • micah stephenson

        Not blaming Smith. The D shud played better. But that fumble at that time.

        • TAZMOSIS

          Micah, I’ll bet that when the Colts were down by 28 their fans were saying the same thing about Luck. The guy had three picks. Alex played as good as any QB in the NFL. We had the game in hand and the D gave up 45. Inexcusable!

          • joanne

            No. We LOVE Andrew Luck and all quarterbacks have bad games. Difference is, Luck made up for it.

    • Auburn78

      And the difference in the game was the ungodly amount of Colts receivers who were WIDE OPEN in the 2nd half.

    • TAZMOSIS

      Alex Smith did not give up 45 points. Get real, Micah.

    • d-block

      You’re clearly a moron.

      • jayhawkscott

        Well said

      • micah stephenson

        Yo momma. Its always somebody that wants to talk shit over the internet.

        • d-block

          Uh huh. I get that you’re a Chiefs fan, like all of us. But man you gotta let your thing with AS go. He’s not why we lost.

  • Keith Nielsen

    That last play pretty much sums up Dwayne Bowe……….he would be at least the 3rd or 4th receiver on team like Denver. That was a perfect pass by Alex but Bowe had terrible awareness. This team needs couple of receivers and DBs next year.

    • micah stephenson

      He do what he can. He can’t throw to himself and catch it. He had a good game.

      • TAZMOSIS

        Not for a guy making 56 million. He has to get that right foot down. If that happens, we are having a different conversation.

        • micah stephenson

          Get n both feet n is against the laws of physics from where and how he caught it.

          • Kansas_City

            I think the point is that he should not have put himself in that bad position where he could not come down in bounds.

      • Keith Nielsen

        Micah you have proven all year that regardless of how he plays that he will be nothing more than “decent”. He accounted for ~430 yards of offense, can you articulate how he could have elevated his game to “good” status?

        • micah stephenson

          By winning like Andrew Luck did!

    • micah stephenson

      Bowe wud b waaaay better with Manning at Qb. All our wrs wud.

      • mattU

        Newsflash: Peyton Manning may be the best QB of all time. Hate to break it to you, but KC isn’t going to find that anywhere in this year’s draft and certainly not last year’s. Also, don’t know if you’ve ever watched a Broncos game, but Peyton’s receivers actually get open on a consistent basis…This is something that can’t be said about our receiving corps.

    • Ed

      I agree. He has to have awareness. I say we draft Sammie from Clemson. Get rid of Avery and other

  • John Guyer

    Have you seen our schedule for next season…. Gonna be extremely tough

  • Guest

    I have been waiting for this team to be a winner since 1972 how do you squander a lead like that! This team is jinxed!! No excuses this time!!!!!!

  • Guest

    DBs are horrific!

    • Aaron Martin

      Absolutely agree to the fullest. They lost this game.

    • Ed

      It has to be coaching. I am sorry but the Sevondary coach has to go plus Robinson.

  • Aaron Martin

    Can someone explain to me why Surton changes up the D all the time in the second half and why you play off the recover 10-15 yards even after he has lit you up.

    • mattU

      Playing off doesn’t kill you when you’re up 28 points in the 2nd half and the offense can still be effective. What killed us were the 40-50 yard bombs given up playing with a lead. There’s no excuse playing man coverage all over with that type of lead in the second half. We should have made them move the ball down the field in 10 yard chunks and slowed the game down as much as possible.

  • ravenous for chiefs

    How much would a quality tight end and wide receiver help this team? An upgrade at those positions are needed.

    • micah stephenson

      I ain’t a Alex Smith fan but the TE Fasano is garbage! We need TE more than Wr. Our QB still trying to figure out how to use the wrs we got.

      • tm1946

        Unless Fasano plays defense, I would say the defense let us down, big time from the start to the last indy td.
        But you are correct we have needs and hopefully this next draft will be a whole lot better than the last.

  • Jason Phelps

    Fuck chiefs football!!!! FML!! Watched every snap and podium piece chiefs had this year… Broke my heart…. Mother fuckers couldn’t just do the opposite of what they were supposed to for once! Cowards

    • Bill Jones

      Well said my friend. I think you summed up every Chiefs fans on this forum.

  • Frank Leggio

    Our second half D cost us the game. Pretty sure it was a DC issue more than a personnel issue, though that didn’t help. But with as many pro bowlers as we have over there, losing 1 should be OK. We got cautious and lost.

  • andyred

    Sutton and his defensive scheme need to go. Its clear he’s in over his head and he can take Kendrick Lewis and his inability to tackle with him. Hopefully in the offseason we can trade Robinson for a pizza, though I think that’s still asking for too much…

  • Jason J Morrison

    i don’t blame Alex Smith, he had a hell of a game with so many key guys going out. i have a problem with Bob Sutton not changing the Defense to maybe a double coverage on Ty Hilton. He burnt the secondary something fierce today. Secondly as a Safety your only job really is to not let anyone get behind you. how did we have two safeties trailing Ty Hilton on that last 70 yard play that put the Cults in the lead.

    I say Sutton can stay, but take a pay cut for the crap defense he called in the second half.
    Re-Do Bowes contract, and get a fast receiver that can catch. is that so hard to find now a-days?
    cut Robinson, Lewis, and Demps now.
    Pick up some players that can play the safety position like Berry.
    finally, start working out the contracts for the guys that we will be loosing after next season so we dont have any hold outs.

    I am very happy with the way they came from worst in the NFL to worst in the Playoffs within one season, hopefully we can keep that trend moving upwards and maybe next year we actually win a Playoff game that is not in Indy.

    • tm1946

      See your point but think we need to step back and evaluate every player and coach in a FEW days.
      Would like some kind of explanation why Robinson set foot in the game. But that is just me being bitter.

      • mattU

        Robinson was in the game because Flowers got injured with 8 minutes to go in the 3rd. We lost quite a few key players in this game, but Flowers was the one that really opened up all the slot throws for Luck in the 3rd and 4th quarter. The problem lied with Sutton believing he could play the exact same scheme with someone taking the place of a pro-bowler.

  • Auburn78

    Best response to this game that I have seen….
    When I die I want the Chiefs to be my pallbearers, so they can let me down one last time.

  • Jason Phelps

    Devastated…

  • Frank Leggio

    AR and BS went all Tommy Boy in the second half.

  • Aaron Martin

    I am sick to my stomach

  • stephan costa

    Well football gods,thanks for finding a new & exciting way to break my heart into a million pieces. As a Chief fan of 35 plus years I guess that’s the best I can expect. At least you took me to the top of the mountain before you dropped me off the other side

    • sidibeke

      Speaking of football gods, when Indy’s rb fumbles and Luck picks it up and scores a TD, man, things have started to not go your way.

  • tm1946

    Numb and dumb-founded. You/we only get so many chances. Doubt we will fair this well next year.
    Such a waste. Not sure how many more I have in me.
    But the sun will come out tomorrow, hopefully. And the Chiefs will play again, just such a waste.

  • Jshears

    This game was decide because of two things.. First, the secondary!!! And Second, D Bowe getting chased down at the 2 and the “O” not punching it in!!! This game was close because of Alex!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Pretty pathetic play calling all around. Why even take a chance on a sideline pass with the game on the line? Dumb. Not one single adjustment against TY Hilton… Dumb. One screen play the entire game to Fasano. Dumb. No blitzing by the DB’s or the LB’s so we let AL destroy a second rate secondary. Dumb. We get a look at 8 in the box after the 2 minute warning and call a timeout. Dumb. How much dumb shit has to happen before someone is held accountable for it? So stupid even the casual fan can see.

    And Alex Smith… SHOW SOME F’ING LEADERSHIP.

    Not every moment requires calmness and a lack of passion. You’re got game skills, your a winner, but your are for damm sure not a leader. Step it up… Fire your team up…. Show some passion.

    Another serious disappointment as a Chiefs fan.

    Time to work on the putting stroke.

    • tm1946

      The defense was not very good in the beginning and tired in the end. But you are right, time to start working on golf game. New grip on putter, will stop drinking from the shot glass and use it to stop the ball.

    • sidibeke

      I don’t understand it myself, why we didn’t blitz Manning more, why we didn’t blitz Luck more. I don’t get it. When Indy brought the house, they got an intentional grounding call.

  • Blake Molina

    Curious to see if Sutton keeps his job. Also, need to make some changes in secondary and receiving whether it’s draft or free agency. Lewis and Robinson need to be gone in my opinion

  • micah stephenson

    How did Luck do that? What eva wrs you throw out there, he just make it work. If Alex throws 3 ints or get down by 21 its over! For Andrew Luck, no problem. Thats why I want a big time QB folks!

    • tm1946

      For some reason I doubt the media will have the guts to ask Andy about, our Chiefs decided to not cover Hilton and never adjusted as he torched the defenders.

      • Danny W

        That’s exactly it. Why are we throwing the ball and going out of bounds with the lead? That’s stupid coaching and playing. How you don’t adjust to the obvious threat in Hilton is just a joke to me. This game is on coaching.

    • Danny W

      Dude come on. You know I’m not a guy who just buys in because he’s on my team. Smith did not cost us this game. Passing the ball with a 28 point lead and not adjusting coverage toward Hilton cost us the game. Kendrick Lewis you could say cost us the game. Not having a good quarterback is beating on a dead horse bro…Seriously enough already.

      • micah stephenson

        I’m blaming the defense for this.

    • SM

      Agree with your comment – it’s over if Alex throws 3 INTS – because our D SUCKS!!! Luck would not fair as well against his D. Alex would probably have a field day with our D…!!!

    Fuqing lewis and robinson……and a terrible defensive scheme. Im heart broken. Smith has to stay i dont want a joe flacco paid QB that costs so much you cant keep anyone else. I dont know any other defense that would have happened to. We need free safety, corner ,and a wide reciever. Kelce will be fine at TE.

  • Jetlife510

    Chiefs suck ass! Raider Natin!!!

  • Kansas_City

    Come on. Smith did not have a great game when he makes two game turning mistakes: (1) overthrowing Gray on a play that effectively would have wrapped up the game; and (2) taking an intentional grounding penalty when the Chiefs are on teh 39 yard line when a field goal wins the game. I like Smith, and think the Chiefs can win with him, but you can’t call him great today. Great QB’s make those plays.

    • micah stephenson

      they don’t want to hear that. When he has no stats , they say that don’t matter as long as we win. Then when we do lose its, yea but look at his stats! Lol

      • Kansas_City

        Don’t understand the reply, but my point is that “great” QB’s at some time in their career make the type of plays that Smith failed to make and win the game. Not sure how important it is because either Broncos or Patriots would kill Chiefs next week, but at some point a QB needs to make those plays.

    • sidibeke

      All sorts of plays left on the field. Hemmingway should have blocked, help Bowe in the end zone. We should have been able to punch it in from there and not settle for 3. AS intentional grounding, overthrowing Gray (although it did seem like Gray slowed up a bit as he was looking for the ball, if he had run through it…or maybe he’s just slow). Of course the D. Bowe should have caught a big 3rd down pass. Avery had a drop. Lots of plays left on the field. In the end, a collapse like that needs to fall on the coaches shoulders, and the D coaches in particular.

    • Troy Utt

      Was Smith perfect NO… But KC losing was not the fault of the offense, & it certainly was not the fault of Alex Smith!!! Granted there were some injuries on “D”… none more signifigant than JC to the offense & Lord knows Smith was the common thread holding them all together. Taking the one sack from behind was the fault of Brandon Albert, I’m not sure who was covering on the other… Point being when playing & putting up the points & numbers he did it’s hard to ask for much more… I too would have loved to see us connect on one of those late in the game, But let’s be honest Smith or any other QB should never be put in the position where they are faced with having to score on every opportunity… Which is what he did for the longest this evening. The Chiefs have something to build on & despite contrary belief he was/is the right QB to run our WCO.
      Maybe this off-season R&D will focus on getting Smith some talent, besides it’s hard to run a WCO w/o functioning TE’s let-alone WR’s that will catch the ball consistantly! WAR CHIEFS!!!

    • mattU

      Other than maybe Hilton, Smith had the best game of anyone on the field today. I really don’t know how you can argue against that. Luck threw a bad pick that turned into a TD, and had 2 other picks as well. Smith got chased down from behind by a guy he knew was being double-team blocked and fumbled..Sure, he should have felt that pressure and got rid of the ball, but the sack wasn’t entirely his fault.

      The Gray overthrow was as much on Gray as it was on Smith…On first watch I was screaming at Alex for missing that pass, but watching it again Gray definitely wasn’t running full speed the entire route. You can’t blame the QB for throwing where the receiver should be.

      I just watched the intentional grounding play again. What was he supposed to do there? Immediate pressure and the DE was standing directly in the passing lane to McCluster waiting for that throw. I think Sherman was supposed to be in the flat where Smith threw it, and he got stuck behind the LOS. Maybe he should have thrown in the dirt toward McCluster, but if Sherman was supposed to be his second read on the right and there’s guys in his face as soon as he turns that way, he did the right thing. If he doesn’t throw it away, he takes a sack and it’s the same result with the clock running.

      • Kansas_City

        Let’s keep it simple. In the NFL, QB’s are expected to make plays to win the game when the time comes. Today, Luck made the play and Smith failed to make the player. Sure, there were many other important plays, but until Smith makes those plays to win a playoff game for the Chiefs, he is not doing the job and he certainly is not having a great game.

        • mattU

          Sorry, I disagree. Smith played a very good game and certainly did his job today. Smith didn’t have the luxury of passing against Dunta Robinson and Kendrick Lewis in 4th quarter crunch time. Say what you want, but Andrew Luck isn’t the only QB who would have lit the Chiefs up the 2nd half today…The passes he was completing were not tremendously difficult.

          • Kansas_City

            Article said Smith played “great game,” which is obviously wrong when he had the chance to win the game with about five more yards on last drive and failed, with an intentional grounding being the killer. You said “Smith played a very good game” which is about right and just short of what the Chiefs needed to advance. LIfe as a QB in the playoffs is not always fair, but Luck makes the big plays and wins and Smith does not.

      • A1 Yola

        No loss of down, and a loss of five instead of ten. But keep spinning.

        • mattU

          What? Sack still means it’s 3rd down. You don’t lose an extra down from intentional grounding…the down the penalty occurred is lost instead of replayed like it is on a holding penalty or something. About a 7 yard loss if he takes the sack, and the clock keeps running. Whoever was on the left side and whiffed on the DE is to blame on that play…not Smith.

          • A1 Yola

            I might be wrong about the distance. As far as the clock, they want it to keep running, they still have 1 TO at that point. Read the post game transcript, AS admitted his mistake.

    • A1 Yola

      IDK why folks voted down your comment, your spot-on. Happy Feet Smith cost his team the game (AT THE END) by making that horrible decision.

  • Debby Lamb

    It’s almost as if the team is afraid to be good and win meaningful games anymore. Ugh.

    If Alex takes the sack instead of throwing it nowhere!, K.C. Stayed in FG range and they have a Chance. The D was beyond pathetic, Sutton is an Imbecile. I wish I knew where 21 & 23 resided in KC! Even 56 played poorly, shame.

    First a bit of perspective … we went from 2-14 a year ago to doing what the Chiefs do and that is a one in done post season. Not bad for a year. I’ve sifted through this thread and can’t believe the # of post blaming Alex Smith. Smith played a good game (not perfect) but you can hardly lay the 28 points meltdown on him. If your team puts 44 points on the board you should win that game.

    To me it does all come down to the defensive play calling … we have many studs on Defense but the play calling and adjustments are terrible. Yes our Defense dominated this season but against sub par teams. Any team with any offensive power dominated our defense and usually in the 2nd half where they made good adjustments and our Defense did nothing.

    I know people say lets give Sutton another year our two … but I’ve been a Chiefs fan as long as they’ve existed, I’ve been waiting 20 years for them to win a fucking playoff game and have set through countless years of a sub par coaching carousel saying we’ll be better next year. The NFL is set up to turn things quickly so we need to do it now while we still have a young talented players … if we give Sutton 2 more years our offense will become depleted to free agency as other teams cherry pick our talent.

    If you look at the year our offense struggled early on and steadily improved … I think what the offense did missing our MVP offensive threat was impressive and speaks volumes for what we might be able to do with simply a decent wide receiver (bowe is okay … but not an elite receiver) and a good Tight end (I can only imagine having Tony G yesterday on that critical 4th down). But our defense only looked good against the NFL bottom dwellers and looked like a predictable piece of Swiss Cheese against good teams.

    Please Mr. Hunt don’t wait another year or two to find out loosing shoot out games is not how you win superbowls. Sutton has proved he can not make adjustments properly to compete with the leagues elite teams … lets not get into the Peterson/Shottenhiemer cycle were we consider winning 10 games during the season good and a 1st round exit in the playoffs as an accomplishment.

    I feel sorry most for my kids … since I have been a life long Chiefs fan they were borne cheering for the Chiefs and have become loyal fans and they do this will living in the 49ers backyards (which by the way compare the number of superbowls between the two teams and tell me who they should be fans of). Just because I’ve been a loyal fan my kids will never know the joy of rooting for a superbowl winner. I have 4 kids and only one was alive 20 years ago when the Chiefs won their last playoff game …

    Time for Kendrick Lewis to find a new pond to swim in……………. the dude can only cover 1/4 of the time and can’t tackle crap.

    I’m a 49ers fan, and an Alex Smith and Chiefs fan this year. Sorry for the very tough loss. It was a good start to the Andy Reid era, though, and the Chiefs offense played well enough to win, especially without your All-Pro running back. Thought Smith had a good game. Good luck next year.
