Locked on Chiefs: Alex Smith’s gritty performance brings Chiefs win

KANSAS CITY, MO - OCTOBER 2: Quarterback Alex Smith
KANSAS CITY, MO - OCTOBER 2: Quarterback Alex Smith /

We recorded live as we left Arrowhead stadium after watching the Chiefs come back and steal a win against a good Redskins team.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the lone undefeated team in the NFL after four weeks of football. Think about that for a second. I know looking at the schedule early on I’d have been almost ecstatic to be 3-1 at this point. The Chiefs being undefeated after the first quarter of the season says a lot about the team. Unfortunately for them, they face a brutal schedule the next three weeks. A trip to Houston next Thursday night, the Steelers in K..C and then heading to Oakland on a short week against the Raiders will be tough.

Fun to watch a game like that especially on a national stage. One of the biggest surprises of the night was watching Reggie Ragland take over as the other starter at middle linebacker. Ramik Wilson has played well but Kansas City picked up Ragland for a reason. He is a player that will still need sometime to adjust but it was fun to see him play.

Alex Smith played better than I expected him to with the issues the line was having. The loss of Laurent Duvernay-Tardif could be a huge one as he has been playing fantastic at right guard. Hopefully the Chiefs get good news when the MRI results come in and it is just an MCL injury. Mitch Morse should be back in the next couple of weeks which will help as will Parker Ehinger. And a special shout out to Eric Fisher who struggled with a back injury, missed some practice and gutted out the start tonight.
