Why weren’t the Chiefs more aggressive on their final drive?

Why weren’t the Chiefs more aggressive on their final drive?

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped their second game of the season Thursday night to the Oakland Raiders, but they probably shouldn’t have, given they had a fresh set of downs on offense with 4:15 left on the clock leading 30-24. Oakland had two timeouts remaining. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid called back-to-back Kareem Hunt runs equating to six yards before Alex Smith was sacked at the Kansas City 29-yard line. So why did Reid opt to run with Hunt to, in the radio host’s words, “run clock,” instead of passing on all three downs for the first down? “Who ran clock? I’m not sure on...

Is NFL using a double standard with Mike Mitchell and Vontaze Burfict?

Is NFL using a double standard with Mike Mitchell and Vontaze Burfict?

The NFL find Mike Mitchell for something Vontaze Burfict would have been suspended for. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell was reportedly fined nearly $50,000 for his late hit on Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith. Mitchell’s helmet-to-helmet hit on Chiefs’ running back Charcandrick West, which put West out with an apparent concussion, did not draw either a fine or a penalty. Mitchell hit Smith from behind at the knees at least a full second after he had released a pass in what Smith regarded as a dirty play. "I felt like it was extremely late," Smith said Tuesday. "I...

Chiefs vs. Raiders final score: Wild ending as Kansas City loses, 31-30

What a way for the Kansas City Chiefs to lose. The Oakland Raiders win, 31-30. This game had a little bit of everything, including one of the wildest endings I remember. The Raiders thought they won with a long touchdown pass to Jared Cook then the Chiefs thought they won - a few times - before the Raiders threw the game winner with no time left. The Chiefs lose their second straight game and move to 5-2 on the season. Final stats are here. Alex Smith put up big numbers Alex Smith stats: 25/36 for 342 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs Alex Smith has thrown for 300+ yards and 3+ TDs three times this...

Chiefs somehow get a tipped pass touchdown that goes for 63 yards

Chiefs somehow get a tipped pass touchdown that goes for 63 yards

The Kansas City Chiefs got some payback for last week’s touchdown with this 63-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Albert Wilson. Watch the play here with the tipped pass and catch: ALEX SMITH CAN DO NO WRONG #CHIEFS pic.twitter.com/FGSBIDyHpH— Clay Wendler (@ClayWendler) October 20, 2017 It’s payback for last week because a very similar play to this happened last week in the Steelers game when Antonio Brown caught a tipped pass and ran it back for a touchdown. That touchdown killed the Chiefs in that game and helped them to the loss. The Chiefs were the victims of another...

Who are you starting in the week’s first game? Thursday Night Football kicks off a new week in football and two teams are in different positions than many predicted prior to the season.

Chiefs vs. Raiders Madden sim: This is not ideal

Our weekly Madden sim was wrong last week; let’s hope it stays that way. This one against the Raiders was ugly. Watch above, or if you can’t, here’s the link. The results Raiders 20, Chiefs 6 After the Chiefs went ahead 3-0 on the first drive of the game, just about everything else went wrong. Alex Smith threw his first three interceptions of the season, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 189 yards, including an 84-yard score, and despite 143 yards from Travis Kelce, the Chiefs could not get into the end zone all game. Kicker Harrison Butker was only 2 of 4 in a game in which field goals could...

Alex Smith vs. Steelers: One of those types of games

Let’s get this over with, shall we? I haven’t been present here over the last few days besides my own articles, but I imagine there’s been a lot of debate about Alex Smith vs the protection vs the receivers vs the PIT zone coverage vs the defense ... and on and on it’s likely gone. I’ve stayed out of it (other than to write about the defense doing its job) because it’s exhausting to argue the same stuff we’ve argued for years. BUT. .. I have a job to do. And that job involves breaking down Alex Smith’s all-22 film after every game, good and bad. And yes, this game there was...
