Game 5 thoughts
The defense in the first half and 4th They were lights out enough said and came up with the picks late to wrap it up
Alex Smith in the 4th Came up clutch when they fell behind Alex took them right down the field and got in the endzone. That's not something we have seen before. Most the time in the past few years that was when the team caved. They didn't today
Ryan Succop came up clutch in a long field goal. Big plus
Alex Smith he seemed a bit off today. Thew a Cassel like pick. Every Qb has a downer game through the season lets hope that was his.
The defense in the 3rd they looked like last years d and a hot knife through butter. They can't let a team come out of the break and do that most of the time that will cost you. But they didn't let it cost us.
The penalties Can't have them. They Play the Faiders next week and they like to draw you into that type of game. We can't get in that game.Penalties like that will KILL you. They were lucky to escape
Overall this was a 2010 like win. They got some bounces and got the W and that's what matters.
GO Cowboys today and GO CHIEFS
- I'm concerned a bit about Bowe's play. He seems to run lethargic routs.
- Cooper might be for real.
- McGrath is holding his own, but when will Fasano and Kelce come back? It's a bit frustrating.
- Jamaal got his 100, but he seems to get stopped for no gain more frequently these days.
Chiefs were very fortunate to win this game. If they don't get called for that personal foul penalty on Alex's 3rd down scramble that was stopped short of a 1st down, then what?
Although, Len Dawson said it was the correct call as Smith had one foot out of bounds & the defender launched himself at Smith. Correct me, if I'm wrong on this.
I'm still concerned about our inability to stop the passing game sometimes. But, we are playing good teams and finding ways to win. I think we'll get better in that regard, however, as the guys get more familiar with the new defensive coordinator.
That call could be considered a make up for the HORRIBLE PI on Berry if they don't get that call then we never trail so I guess it evened out

Don't think you're wrong...but what irritated me was that the officials didn't call things the same way throughout the game (when Dexter McCluster got into the same situation, flag was thrown, then told the crowd there was no penalty on the play.)

The offense was sluggish in the rain. Tennessee had a couple fluke plays that kept them in the game, but overall, the Chiefs dominated each quarter but the ref-assisted 3rd.
The Chiefs for the 4th week in a row had what was essentially a game killing drive in the 4th. Alex is there when it counts.
_ Dallas is up 10 on Denver Mannings. Could it be...? Could it be...?
Well, so much for Dallas' lead. :(
