Eagles vs Chiefs recap: Kansas City wins tough game over Philadelphia

Eagles vs Chiefs recap: Kansas City wins tough game over Philadelphia

Hindsight is 20/20, but the Eagles' leap of faith with Isaac Seumalo at left guard is not paying off. Seumalo was eaten alive by the Chiefs interior linemen, and he was the biggest source of pressure on the signal caller throughout the game.

"It's great having that under our belt, but you've got to have a short memory", Nunez-Roches said. "To play another tough game on the road, it's going to be another tough game for us because it's the next game".

The other big storyline is the Chiefs' colossal Thursday night upset of the defending Super Bowl champions.

Reid has always had an eye for skill players, and in Kelce, Hill and Hunt - along with QB Alex Smith - the Chiefs have a nucleus that could bring Kansas City its first top-10 offense since Dick Vermeil was head coach. The Giants defense is a very good one, and if the Cowboys offense is going to get to where it was previous year, Dez Bryant is going to have to step up his production.

Week one of the National Football League season is in the books, and what a week it was for fans of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Another missed opportunity took us to the end of the first half with 1:17 remaining, the Eagles where driving down the field for what would be a go ahead field goal.

If Carson Wentz throws three picks and the Chiefs still go on to lose, that'd be incredibly disappointing. Kelce had 5 for 40 but was over 1,100 yards previous year. "There are still a lot of things to work on and improve though".




"You see a lot of that. They're going to have a good sense of what we do obviously, we feel we have a pretty good feel for their defense as well it's just gonna to come down to making plays". They head to Denver next week, and should have some success against the inconsistent Broncos offense. In 1973, it was Jim Bertelsen and Lawrence McCutcheon of the Rams, and just past year it was achieved by Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks of the Saints.

They were not completely immune to Kareem Hunt, however, as the rookie running back broke open a 53-yard run on a draw to earn the Chiefs a third quarter 13-10 lead. Sproles fumbled a punt return deep in Eagles territory, which was a little more uncharacteristic. You have to be good across the board. "You just have to kind of take it". "It's nice just to be able to be happy and be around other people".

The biggest weak point on the Philadelphia Eagles defense is the secondary.

The Chiefs aired it out to tight end Travis Kelce on their opening drive, looking much like they did in dissecting New England in their opener more than a week ago.

The second-year signal-caller had to deal with a tough Chiefs defense all game long, but he really earned my respect in this one. While the experts were busy pondering the Patriots' potential to go undefeated this season, Andy Reid was masterminding a plan to ensure that didn't happen. Whether it's on their receivers or the speed they've got in the backfield, or it's their tight end or it's their quarterback getting rid of the ball.

The Eagles' offense had a couple of impressive moments of its own in Week 1. "We're still learning about ourselves and trying to figure out our identity".
