Harrison Butker Earns AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Honors for Week 2 | Chiefs.com

Harrison Butker made history on Sunday with a pair of 58-yard field goals – the latter of which won the game in overtime for the Kansas City Chiefs – and his efforts are being rewarded with some hardware.

Butker was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday following his stellar performance, which saw him match the franchise record for field goal distance not once, but twice. Only Nick Lowery, who connected from exactly 58 yards twice in his career, had ever hit from that distance in a Chiefs’ uniform prior to Butker’s efforts on Sunday.

Five NFL offenses that can never be counted out in 2020 | NFL.com

[No.1] Even when a defense does a good job against the Chiefs, their offense is almost impossible to contain for an entire game, as they showed repeatedly throughout their Super Bowl championship run. The Chargers became the latest group to gain bitter firsthand experience of this on Sunday, when Kansas City’s quick-strike attack vaporized an L.A. lead that had lasted three-plus quarters. Go ahead, go up on this team — and live in constant fear that Mahomes will simply unleash a 54-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill seemingly at will, or convert on third-and-20 with less than a minute to go by scrambling for the first down by himself. When you take into account Mahomes’ playmaking ability through the air and on the ground, along with the explosive potential of his supporting cast, it’s clear this offense can only be counted out after the clock ticks all the way down to zero.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes featured in Time’s 100 most influential people list | ChiefsWire

“When Patrick Mahomes steps onto the football field, all eyes are drawn to him. It’s not just that his combination of athleticism, creativity and vision is fun to watch. What his play really showcases is his love of the game and the commitment he’s made to his teammates and coaches, and it’s clear that is the true foundation of his success.

That joy and loyalty drive his work ethic and the hours of practice and studying he puts in to be the best he can be. It drives his ability to stay calm, steady and focused when challenges arise, whether in the middle of the biggest game or over the course of a long season. And most important, it drives his competitive fire and strong leadership qualities, which just continue to grow.” – Derek Jeter

Chiefs coach Andy Reid reveals the one big thing Patrick Mahomes has in common with Brett Favre | CBSSports

“They’re two different people, I mean, they’re different. We’re all different,” Reid said, before explaining exactly what they have in common. “These guys, they think alike. When that football is in their hand, it’s the same thought process. They both have phenomenal vision, just like fighter-pilot vision, they see everything, and then they’re going to rip your heart out, man. I mean, every throw they’re going to try and gut you.”

[No.3] In terms of acrobatic throwing abilities, Mahomes is still the undisputed top dog. And if he had played two shootouts to start the year, we might be considering him at No. 2. But this shouldn’t be a slight against him. He’s great. He’s a threat to unleash a game-winning throw whenever he takes the field. Chiefs fans should be confident every week so long as he’s healthy.

Andy Studebaker reflects on his Chiefs tenure and life after the NFL |

I think most people would point to the game I had two interceptions. If not that, most would point to the fumble recovery I had on Monday Night Football. Most people remember those moments. For me, those were great and fun, but what I miss and what you look at when you think back to your playing days is the relationships you had with the guys. It’s ice cream the night before a game in the hotel. It’s the conversations and ways you invest in your teammates and their families. That type of stuff is special. I don’t know if there’s a moment that I’m most proud of. Those two highlights made me feel valued in the city, no doubt. It’s like, ‘Okay, these people have taken a liking to me. I’ve earned their love for something weird like that.’

You guys think we’ll beat the Ravens this week? They look like a well oiled machine and we’re a bit rickety. I could see us losing a close one but then getting our act together mid-season and steamrolling them in the playoffs.

They looked like a well oiled machine going into the playoffs last year. I think they’ll go into the game a little jittery with something to prove, we won’t be. Andy is pounding the guys this week, they’ll be ready.

Confident but not cocky. Chiefs are the better team but it’s a bad style matchup

Tell that to the last two years playing them. Will they be a tough out? Sure, they are a good team. But they aren’t the juggernaut everyone is claiming they are.

I’m hoping MVPennel sparks the run defense again and that someone sprinkles some magic dust on the worst LB group in football to get them to play adequately. If Watkins and Ward can play I’ll feel a lot better about their chances.

They played two shit teams. We played one shit (and looked just as well oiled) and a decent team I think many are underestimating

I think its going to be a good game but in the end I just cant bet against Mahomes Magic until proven otherwise. I think the defense does just enough at the last possible moment to keep the Chiefs in it for Magic to happen
