The Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL in the amount of players they sent to the annual NFL all-star game in Honolulu, Hawaii at Aloha Stadium. In all, the Chiefs had 10 players in the game. Those players were:
Quarterback Alex Smith, punt returner Dexter McCluster, linebackers Justin Houston and Derrick Johnson, and cornerback Brandon Flowers for Team Rice and running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry, left tackle Branden Albert, defensive tackle Dontari Poe and linebacker Tamba Hali for Team Sanders.
Nearly every player in the game from the Chiefs made plays in one way or the other. Whether it was Dontari Poe’s interception on a J.J. Watt deflection, a big 17-yard Jamaal Charles run, Derrick Johnson winning the defensive MVP for his forced fumble and nine tackles, including a huge hit on Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles, a huge Dexter McCluster punt return to set up the game winning drive, or the Chiefs own quarterback Alex Smith throwing the game winning touchdown pass, the Chiefs made an impact on the Pro Bowl in its first year under the new format.
Regardless of what you thought the game may have been in the past, this game was fun to watch. I’m sad that it’s the last time we’ll see the Chiefs on the field until next year.
It’s been a fun ride, Addicts. But don’t go anywhere, we’ll be giving you your fix through the off season.
As always, thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!
