We've already asked our readers to grade the Kansas City Chiefs performance over the Oakland Raiders and surprisingly (to me) nearly half of you gave it a B (49 percent) and not an A (45 percent). That surprised me a little bit, to be honest, considering the score (not that I can't see the justification for grading a B, because I can).
So with that out of the way, it's time to hand out the game ball of the week. As expected in a 28-0 victory, there are several candidates. My top four candidates for the game ball is Brandon Flowers, Kendrick Lewis, Derrick Johnson, Jackie Battle and Dwayne Bowe.
I think we can add a couple of coaches to that list as well. Emmitt Thomas, for coaching a secondary that yielded six picks and two touchdowns and Todd Haley, for leading the Chiefs back from 0-3 to .500. Impressive stuff.
I know who mine is going to -- Flowers. From two picks to one touchdown to the pose in front of hundreds of angry Raiders fans flipping him off -- it was great. Plus, it makes it even better considering what happened in last year's game. I also think there's a strong, strong argument for DJ, and some of the others.
OK, so those are your game ball candidates. Who ya got?
