As Sunday demonstrated, the only chance defenses have is for Kansas City to make mistakes.
One could argue they were stopped in the Falcons game this year.
I love it. Also this core will be around and productive at least a few more years. Drafting and developing is so important.
It’s funny, my friends up here on the NE kept giving grief about how Allen is better than Mahomes. Such nonsense. 🙄 Been telling everyone that would listen that Allen cracks under pressure. 2019 Allen showed up last night.
In a way, I’m finally understanding how NE fans feel when they had Brady. I kept texting my Bills supporting friends that they needed to go for it on every 4th down no matter what during the game. They didn’t believe me. That’s the only route for you to have chance I said! It got to the point where they said I was too cocky and borderline annoying. I finally understand those annoying NE fans now when they had Brady~~~~~ And what brings a smile to my face is Mahomes is ours for the next 10 years at the least. Bills finally saw Brady gone from their division and now they have to deal with us. 😀😂
I don't remember a more complete and complimentary game with offense and defense than this one. Special teams lost two possessions, but on the others there were 5 touchdowns, a field goal, a run-out-the clock and one punt (noted by you as a mistake). The Bucs will make it tougher with that front seven, but we will get ours and with our defense playing like it is, Tom may suffer his first Super Bowl blowout. Great article, thanks!
Bless me, Pastor Seth, for I have sinned, and sinned grievously.
I doubted the Chiefs all last week after listening to too many talking heads on TV pushing their storyline of how great the Bills were and how KC will be unable to handle them because KC had not been steamrolling anyone. How Josh Allen, the new flavor of the month, was going to surpass Mahomes and may win the MVP. I listened and became skeptical of the Chiefs as I walked through the valley of the shadow of past playoff losses. I lost faith as the Bills went ahead 9-0.
To be fair, I have been a Chiefs fan since they arrived in KC and I have had my heart broken repeatedly.
This article has restoreth my soul and my faith in the Chiefs. I will only listen to you, Petro, and Eager from now on. Surely Super Bowl victories shall follow me all the days of my life. And I shall dwell in the house of the Arrowhead forevermore.
I love the Reggie Bush in college comparison. Cheetah is the wrong nickname for Hill because though they are the fastest, it is only in short bursts and then they must rest. To have that burst and the endurance to go through 60 reps a game is other-worldly athleticism. Romo pointed that out last night when he went flying up the field 20 yards on a routine handoff.
I also think about this some when I hear about Kelce not being an elite blocker. Why on earth would we have been block one guy when putting him in a pattern occupies two guys? Every time he leaves the line of scrimmage, he has the attention of a linebacker and a safety.
What do you get when you mix Patrick Mahomes with Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Darrell Williams?
You get Andy's frozen custard Jackhammer special with creamy peanut butter, brownies, and hot fudge. 🍦You can't beat it!
My favorite paragraph I've read about the chiefs this year was breaking down everyone's critiques of why each group is only good because of the other. Its ringing even more true with lots of people saying Allen could've won if he had hill and kelce. Brava Seth
The Chiefs were one muffed punt away from playing their A+ game against the Bills. It's no discredit to Buffalo that they weren't able to stop it. To have a chance, teams have to bring their own A+ game, take gambles to chase every possible point, and hope the Chiefs have a B- or worse outing.
I have watched the second Kelce TD clip 200+ times just admiring that design. Mahomes literally knows before the snap this is a TD.
I remember teams (i.e. the patriots) have tried to bracket Kelce and Hill at the same time. Do you know of any breakdown of how the Chiefs have responded to this kind of gameplan in the past two years? If not, would you please fill my two weeks of waiting with some "this is how the Chiefs have beat every type of defense"? please and thank you.
Watkins is a big uncertainty and I hope that all of this waiting means he will suit up and be Sammy for 4 quarters. Pringle has played well in his place but I am very worried about him fumbling while fighting for yards.
