One youtube video focusing on run blocking by the Chiefs OL, one on pass blocking (specifically OBJ).

First one is a largely positive look at run blocking.

Second one is of low video quality and no commentary but it is still interesting seeing all the OBJ pass protection plays back-to-back.

Jaylen’s 99-yard pick six is now the longest 4th quarter go-ahead touchdown by a rookie in NFL history

Honestly, I had forgotten Jackson ever played in KC.
On this day in Kansas City sports history, on September 17th in 1967, which was 55 years ago today, Reggie Jackson hit his first career home run for the Kansas City A’s vs the California Angels.

THIS IS WHY I’m high on Chiefs Defense

When Chiefs Defense hold opponents to UNDER 27 points.

Chiefs are 45-1

LET THIS SINK IN
HOME OF THE CHIEFS!!!

27 points? That’s not a very high bar. I think it says more about the Offense than it does the D.
45-1 when we score 4 TDs. Let that sink in.

I would imagine that JuJu and MVS will be the focus for the Colts game. Short passes to get them going and a deep one to MVS at some point. They have not been missing but I feel that the newness has been an impact to this point. Hope Chiefs decide to activate Danny Shelton to shore up the run defense against Taylor. Ryan will be a sitting duck if they cannot run the ball.

I was listening to locked on chiefs and Chris Clark mentioned arrowhead was rocking. When I watched it live on Prime, I kept thinking it was way too quiet. Anyone else go to the game that can clarify? I’m curious if he’s just spouting nonsense or if Prime was deliberately muting noise.

It was loud all night. The crowd was into it. I can’t say if it was 142.2 db loud (I was there too) but I was proud of how the crowd kept up the noise even when we were behind.

That’s awesome. But on the flip side, that seems to indicate Amazon was muting the noise level, which I find absolutely annoying as shit.

Play that Patrick Allen tweet up above the comments. I’d link it but I’m baseline Illiterate doing things like that. Make sure your volume is cranked up. Damn! I get goosebumps every time I play it! Everyone. I mean everyone was jumping up and down yelling like they just won Powerball!

They mentioned a couple times how the Chargers “quieted” the crowd. I also saw Herbert holding his hands over his ears so he could hear the play coming in.

FIRST COMMENT!

I will be writing and posting a Chiefs’ poem or song parody today about Thursday’s game. Had a busy Friday and a tiring week. Some free time today on my day off will get a good poem for us.
