Coffee with the Chiefs – Reacting to the win


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are finally back in the beautiful win column, dispatching the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium, 23-13. Alex Smith played well, Charcandrick West ran tough, and the defense forced three turnovers to help secure the victory. Perhaps even most encouraging was the offensive line, which was pretty solid throughout the day after inserting Jeff Allen at right tackle and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif next to him at guard.

Kansas City now has a crazy week ahead of it, which includes traveling to play the Detroit Lions in Wembley Stadium at London. England.

Kansas City’s offensive line played well on Sunday … seriouslySam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star

"A winning locker room is smiles. It’s been a while. A few old friends are in here, laughing with some of the men who play for the Chiefs. That’s different. The rhythm of a losing locker room is deliberate, melancholy, a week’s worth of hard work and confidence chewed through and digested by the better team on the other side."

"But against a very-good Pittsburgh Steelers team on Sunday, they showed the kind of fortitude they had not in previous weeks, as the Chiefs — who never trailed — were buoyed by big plays from their veteran Pro Bowlers on defense and some encouraging efforts from their youngsters on offense to close out the Steelers in a 23-13 win before a crowd of 76,365 at Arrowhead Stadium."
