Coffee with the Chiefs – Basking in victory


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are starting to play like a good football team, having won their last two games. On Sunday, the Chiefs pounded the Detroit Lions, 45-10, making us feel a heck of a lot better about giving away a home game for the confines of Wembley Stadium. Maybe we should consider playing all of them across the pond until further notice after that display.

The Chiefs will now go on their BYE week and rest up, hopefully getting some injured players back into the fold. When Kansas City returns, it will be facing the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field, a daunting task to say the least.

With that said, here is the news you need to know:

"It was appreciated, however. Over 4,000 miles away, Arrowhead Stadium ― the official home of the Chiefs ― sat empty due to the team’s decision to surrender a home game to play in London. But Wembley Stadium still proved to be a very welcoming environment for the Chiefs, who fed off the energy of a crowd in a convincing 45-10 win over the Detroit Lions."

"West is no Jamaal Charles, but he’s got some second-level shift to him. After losing Charles, it appeared the Chiefs’ season was over. But over the last two weeks, Reid’s squad has impressed with two effective (albeit boring) offensive performances. All of the sudden the Chiefs are on the outskirts of a playoff bid."

"He battled with Calvin Johnson for much of the game and while Megatron made his share of plays, Smith did too. He had an interception and broke up three passes."

Defense leads way in blowout victoryAdam Teicher of ESPN

"With their defense playing as well as it has, the Chiefs appear good enough to beat many of those opponents. If they can get the kind of offense they showed against the Lions, they look good enough to beat all of them."
