Chiefs leads way with big plays from Defense

The Chiefs defense started off much like they did against the Raiders. They gave up an early TD to the Saints and then settled in and helped KC move out to a 21-7 lead at half. Daniel Sorensen had his best day as a Chief to this point in his career. Brees threw a pass over the middle and it was tipped up by Eric Berry and Sorensen snagged it for an INT. Sorensen took off and ended up running the ball back for a TD which was surprising because he isn’t the fastest guy. He wasn’t done as he dragged Brees down for the Chiefs only sack of the game.

Balanced offense puts up big plays too

The Chiefs offense showed enough punch to get the win today but they struggled in the second half. Alex Smith threw for two long TD’s on the day although the first was only a few yards down the field. Ware caught the ball and made a fantastic run to score a 46-yard receiving TD. A couple of drives later the Smith again went to the air to Tyreek Hill and finally connected for a 38-yard TD. Hill has shown great skill in his conversion to WR and Alex Smith trusts him.

Kansas City came out of the game healthy from the sounds of Reid’s press conference. Demarcus Robinson has an arm bruise and Charles sat all of the second half. Kansas City has time to get Phillip Gaines healthy if they hold him out one more week against the Colts. The Chiefs will head back home against the Jaguars and shouldn’t need the CB help against the Jags.
