Chiefs get win at a cost
Kansas City moved to 5-2 on the year with a relatively easy win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday but it could be a very costly win. The Chiefs lost three offensive starters to injury and Parker Ehinger is probably out for a while. Alex Smith and Spencer Ware both left the game with concussions as well. The referees should not like the grades they receive from the NFL for their effort on Sunday. Multiple missed calls on hits on the QB and an egregious miss on the punt that KC got penalized on as well. On that snap the Colts had at least 4 players lined up in the neutral zone but none of them were call. The NFL also needs to determine for sure what a catch is; note for them… Kelce caught that deep ball.
With the injury to Alex Smith, Nick Foles stepped into the offense and quickly started throwing the ball over the field. Foles looks to be paying off for John Dorsey and Andy Reid as he is fully capable backup and should be able to step in and take over for Smith if he is out next week. Kansas City sure looks to have found a gem at WR in Tyreek Hill. Hill on the day ended up 2 yards short of 100 for the day as a receiver. Hill caught two deep balls from Foles including the first that he had to make a tremendous adjustment to get back to the ball. Hill looks to be a legitimate threat whenever he touches the football.
