Good morning AG!

Today in Chiefs history:  probably something but who really cares?
Today in Other history:  Arnold Palmer died (2016) as did John Bonham (1980),  in  1965 60 year old Satchel Paige of the Kansas City Athletics pitches 3 scoreless innings (yours truly was there), Phil Rizzuto was born (1917), in 1789 US Congress proposes the Bill of Rights and Fletcher Christian  was born (1764)


… and Taylor Swift watched an entire football game with Donna Kelce

It’s a love story, perhaps, for NFL tight end Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, who was seen in Kelce’s family suite at Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears.

The singer was shown cheering on the Chiefs during the FOX Sports broadcast, dressed in a red and white team jacket. She appeared to be sitting next to Donna Kelce, the player’s mom, chatting and laughing throughout the game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Chiefs made Swift work of the Chicago Bears in Week 3 at Arrowhead stadium.

Kansas City put away a struggling Chicago unit to improve to 2-1 on the season.



NFL Week 3 Game Recap: Kansas City Chiefs 41, Chicago Bears 10 | PFF

The Kansas City Chiefs got back to their dominant best as they took down the Chicago Bears, 41-10, at home to move to 2-1 on the season and drop the Bears to 0-3.

A dominant first half featured Patrick Mahomes throwing a pair of touchdowns to Jerick McKinnon, while Isaiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire both scored on the ground. In all, the Chiefs led 34-0 at the midway point.

The game was out of hand to the point where the Chiefs were comfortable replacing Mahomes, who had his ankle rolled up on late in the first half, with Blaine Gabbert late in the third quarter with the score at 41-0.

Travis Kelce was chatting with Patrick Mahomes in practice this week when he mentioned, almost as an afterthought, that he thought Taylor Swift would take him up on his invitation to watch the Kansas City Chiefs play the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

“Some things with Travis,” Mahomes explained later, “he says it and you don’ t know if it’s true or not, he says it so calmly.”

Turns out it was true.



KC Chiefs’ Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes Call Out Officials for Jawaan Taylor Penalties vs. Chicago Bears | Sports Illustrated

The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense returned to form on Sunday and had an impressive outing against the visiting Chicago Bears. With that said, it didn’t come without some apparent mistakes that sparked plenty of controversy.

Despite amassing a staggering 456 total net yards and having by far their best performance of the season thus far, the Chiefs’ offense encountered some adversity in the first half of Week 3. On two separate occasions late in the second quarter, starting right tackle Jawaan Taylor drew a penalty for an illegal formation infraction. This comes just one week after the big-money free agent signing was called for five penalties in Week 2’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars … which came a week after Taylor’s pre-snap depth and subsequent jump at the snap were both brought into question on the season-opening Thursday night broadcast.



Week 3 recap: Chicago Bears stay winless after getting dominated 41-10 by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs | Chicago Tribune

Can you tell the story of a 41-10 blowout through two passes? Maybe. A massive mismatch — the likes of which is rarely seen in the parity-filled NFL — was evident in the operation of both teams’ offenses Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a two-time MVP and two-time Super Bowl champion in Patrick Mahomes. He’s the magician whose longest completion of a brilliant first half came on play action, with Mahomes buying extra time with his pocket movement and vision and then throwing an absolute dime to wide receiver Justin Watson just inside the right sideline for 37 yards.



KC Chiefs’ Defense ‘Only Scratching the Surface’ After Win Against Chicago Bears | Sports Illustrated

The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense exploded en route to a 41-point outing against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but it was Steve Spagnuolo’s defense that once again helped steal the show with a dominant performance.

Holding Chicago’s offense to just 10 points (with all of them coming in the fourth quarter), the hosts played a stifling brand of football in Week 3. Sound execution along the front four, from the linebacking corps and in the secondary helped the defense work together in near-perfect harmony, with quarterback Justin Fields and his teammates never managing to settle into a groove. On an afternoon where a stellar defensive performance wasn’t even needed in order for the Chiefs to win, they got one anyway.



Why was Chiefs lineman so fired up vs. Bears? He (and Mahomes) explained afterward | KC Star via yahoo!sports

Donovan Smith raised his arms above his head, then violently ripped them down, raising his head to scream enthusiastically toward the Chiefs’ sideline.

This wasn’t after a touchdown. Nor was it after a game-deciding play in the fourth quarter.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ left tackle, instead, was celebrating a 13-yard run in the second quarter of KC’s eventual 41-10 home victory Sunday over the Chicago Bears.



What we learned from Chiefs’ 41-10 win vs. Chicago Bears (with Taylor Swift watching) | KC Star via yahoo!sports

The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense had not been good nor consistent through two weeks of the season.

Consider that issue solved for a week.



Bears Twitter social media reaction: ‘Call 9-1-1 😫 #DaBears’ | Peoria Journal Star

The Chicago Bears scored a few points late against the Kansas City Chiefs in a 41-10 loss on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, but the overall performance was pretty abysmal.

The fans are restless in Chicago after an 0-3 start, as they look for a glimmer of hope from their beloved Bears.

Here’s what fans are saying about the Bears after losing to the Chiefs.

Our Defense is legit balanced. For the first time in a long time, there is no glaring flaw that other teams can exploit. This is the best I have ever seen a team constantly stuff the various quick screens on the edge.

AND… without our top tackler Bolton and Omenihu on suspension.

I can’t remember the last time our defense seemed so complete.

However, 3 games is still a small sample size. Hopefully the D will keep this up for the whole season.

I’m hoping Blaine gets some more work in next week. I’d comment on his play but they switched to a more competitive game yesterday. At least next week they can’t do that against the J-E-T-S jets jets….. in disappointing drawl now jets.

The fact that Patrick and Andy, who normally avoid saying anything remotely construed as negative, about the illegal formation calls, should tell anyone angry at Taylor all they need to know that he’s unfairly being singled out.

Every time I think I’ve severely screwed up my life, I take solace in the fact that at least I’m not a Donkeys fan.

When I was military (which ended in 2012, about the time the last Chiefs disaster ended), I worked in an office next to a Donkeys fan and it was an unpleasant experience.

They have dug themselves a massive hole and are trying to dig their way out by digging deeper. I’m loving every second of it.

Pat moved into the top 50 all time in TD passes. Now tied with Alex Smith and Phil Simms at 49. Both those guys played over twice as long as Pat and weren’t exactly scrubs.
