Week 9 Arrowhead Award

We know the offense is out of the running this week let’s just get that out of the way. This week’s Arrowhead Award is going to the defense as a whole. This group is elite plain and simple. If I were to tell you the Chiefs don’t get a sack and dominate defensively you’d have a hard time believing it. It’s a really good sign that this team doesn’t need to get sacks to cause turnovers. Marcus Cooper broke up three passes and forced a fumble that was returned for a TD. Sean Smith broke up two passes and returned a pick 100 yards for a TD. Kendrick Lewis, Dontari Poe and Mike DeVito all recorded 9 tackles. There isn’t one player making the play each week it’s a group effort. A great thing about this defense is its ability to adjust. They gave up a big vertical play for a TD early. Following, with the exception of a 26 yard flare pass to C.J. Spiller, the long pass play allowed was 13 yards to Stevie Johnson. The defense bent in the third quarter before returning the interception for six. 9-0 is perfect regardless of how you got there.
