Dexter McCluster Punt Return Longest In Kansas City Chiefs History

New Arrowhead. New Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs lead the San Diego Chargers by two touchdowns at halftime - 21 to 7. The Chiefs scored 21 straight points to end the half. It's lightning and storming in Kansas City right now and it's definitely affecting both teams' players. The Arrowhead Stadium crowd is also proving to be a big help in distracting the Chargers from calling plays and communicating. 

So far, it's been the Chiefs' rookies that have stolen the show:

  • Javier Arenas nearly broke two different punt returns for long gains;
  • Dexter McCluster had a 94-yard punt return for a touchdown. It was the longest punt return in Chiefs' history (We'll post the McCluster punt return video when it becomes available); and,
  • TE Tony Moeaki had a wide open TD catch near the goal line.

Glenn Dorsey, Brandon Flowers and Derrick Johnson are also looking excellent on the defensive side of the ball. Jamaal Charles had an awesome 56-yard TD run that reversed what was a slow start by the Chiefs' offense. 

It's been a great game so far. Are we having fun yet?
