kansas city chiefs
Running back Jamaal Charles has become a veritable workhorse for the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is not surprising since he’s one of the best backs in the entire NFL. With a new contract extension in place, the Chiefs hope for another great season out of Charles, and they’re likely going to get one.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
Injuries slowed down the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half of the NFL season, but now they are much healthier as the playoffs approach.
Three seasons ago, Peyton Manning sat on the sidelines with an injury that many thought may end his career. The Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck out of Stanford and the rebuilding was about to begin. Little did anyone realize that the rebuilding would start immediately.
The Colts and Broncos have already secured a playoff spot, with others offered the chance this weekend if all breaks right. The question is, which team will win the AFC Championship this year?
The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.
The Kansas City Chiefs sport an unblemished (3-0) record, while the New York Giants are a winless (0-3). The Chiefs were able to put away Andy Reid’s former club, the Philadelphia Eagles 26-16 last Thursday night. The Giants suffered through a 38-0 embarrassment at the hands of the Carolina Panthers that left the team battered and bruised, especially on the offensive line.
The Kansas City Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last year at 2-14, so after three weeks of the regular season, KC has already passed their win total from last year. The New York Giants were supposed to challenge for the NFC East title this year, but after Sunday’s shutout loss to the Carolina Panthers, New York has dropped to 0-3. Kansas City looks for the momentum to continue, while New York desperately looks for a “W.”
After years of horrible seasons, poor performances, and multiple coaches, the Chiefs have completely rebuilt their foundation. It is now centered around former first pick and 49er, Alex Smith.
Thanks to Bob Costas following the Jovan Belcher tragedy, it’s apparent that there is no occasion in which a liberal-minded high-profile personality in society thinks that their opinion is unwelcome.
