Chiefs Score Four Field Goals and a Safety to Beat the Redskins

New, comments

14 to 6. The Kansas City Chiefs win their first game of the season!

"The tape of this game is possibly going to be burned."

An astute observation by CBS commentator Ian Eagle. This game was not pretty.

But you know what? This feels awesome. What. A. Relief. The Chiefs get their first win. Joel is in the locker room now and make sure you tweet him your questions at Arrowhead Pride's Twitter account.

Here are few observations. How good does this win feel?!? Yes!

The Good

  • Ryan Succop is our kicker. He was four for four in bad field conditions, hitting from 39, 46, 46 and 24 yards.
  • Tamba Hali with a safety at the end of the game.
  • Larry Johnson had 83 yards rushing on 23 carries.

The Bad

  • Matt Cassel struggled with getting the ball out quickly and not giving in to the defensive pressure.
  • Bowe had at least two drops that were all him.

The Ugly

  • Six dropped passes by the Chiefs.
  • Five sacks given up by the offensive line.

Todd Haley is smiling on the sidelines. CHIEFS! CHIEFS! CHIEFS!
