Your Kansas City Chiefs are 4-0, doubling the win total from last year. They came into this game riding the wave that doesn’t show any signs of slowing. Both teams offense were slow to start in the games beginning, with random burst from both sides throughout the first quarter of play. Bring on “Duck Dynasty”, “the Bearded One”, or any other catchy name you want. Sean McGrath’s touchdown at 14:47 in second quarter with a pass from Alex Smith got the scoring started. The buzz was shortly lived as the Giant’s quickly responded with a deep pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz exactly :54 later. Defense continued to battle for both sides, with the Chiefs getting a FG before the half putting them on top 10-7.
The third quarter was hands down the difference maker for the Chiefs, and this game. Alex started off with just a bad read of a defender cutting a route for an interception(the first of the year for Alex). But not to fear our own Quintin Demps would counter with an interception of his own(pressure and bad decision were key to this INT). Another freak interception off the leg of Charles continued the back and forth flow of the game. Enter Dexter “Run DMC” McCluster with spins, and jukes resembling that of a Madden video game. The atmosphere and game was changed by McClusters return, the Chiefs added two more late touchdowns from Charles and Bowe to grab a 31-7 victory over the now 0-4 Giants.
I believe this was a great win for the Chiefs, and the city of Kansas City. The defense was again what I have liked to call them “smothering”, and what I believe to be a huge part of this team. Eric Berry continues to impress by being everywhere, from the stuffing of the running back to breaking up the deep ball. I was very pleased to see Bowe get involved in this offense, and his extra effort on his TD was amazing. This was a overall team win from the offense, defense, and the special teams.
