Kansas City Chiefs
FINALLY. The sense of relief I felt when I watched this Chiefs team on Sunday was unmatched. Finally, the offense was clicking. Mahomes to Kelce and Mahomes to Hill rained down like a monsoon—not to mention our new WR2 Darrel Williams. The offensive line was outstanding, Mahomes had his swagger, and the defense—my goodness! Outside a Mike Hughes fumble, this team played an almost perfect game. And that team – the one from Sunday – looked like a team you definitely do not want to see in January.
Big shout out to Tommy Townsend. My word he has been spectacular the last couple of weeks. His throw on the fake punt was a thing of beauty. Just look at that form!
I thought the play calling was improved and the execution was sharp. Maybe all those talking heads saying the throw from Mahomes to Hill at the end of the Green Bay game was the wake-up call, right?
This team played together, they looked like they were having fun, and as a result, they dominated. This is the kind of play we need and this is the kind of play I am looking forward to for the rest of the season.
Coming out of Sunday’s beat down of the Raiders, the Chiefs are only hoping to get healthier. Andrew Wylie played a heck of a game as the third-string right tackle, but the hope is that Lucas Niang is improving enough to have a shot at starting on Sunday. We will likely see the return of Clyde Edwards-Helaire from IR which means there will be some moves made to the roster now that quarterback Shane Buechele is officially on the 53-man thanks to a Cardinals attempt at poaching. We also may see the return of Kyle Long. All these moves should become clearer as the week goes on.
Sunday is a big one folks. Not really in terms of conference play, but a big one for my marriage. As some of you know, my husband is a HUGE Cowboys fan. So, come Sunday, I, along with him and a significant number of his family members, not to mention my cousins will make the trek to Arrowhead. I am outnumbered here. Pray for me.
I cannot wait for this game – both teams are coming off huge wins and both are Super Bowl-caliber. I’m hoping, praying, begging the football gods for a Chiefs win, but this will be tough. The Cowboys’ offense is outstanding, but maybe, just maybe, the Chiefs’ swagger will put the red and yellow on top.
