Andy Reid was his usual self at Sunday's post-game press conference but KC Chiefs fans know it's a much bigger deal than that. The Chiefs are now 2-0 in the AFC West after their Week 2 and home opener victory over the Cowboys.
Here are a few highlights from Reid's post-game press conference:
*Injuries: Anthony Fasano has an ankle injury and Branden Albert has a shoulder injury. Both went back into the game. Mike Devito has a stringer and he's sore, according to Reid.
*"That's a good Cowboys football team and time will tell on that as the season goes on."
*On the Chiefs players staying even-keeled: "They just didn't have those high highs and those low lows."
*Knile Davis was in on the final kick return that was fumbled because Quintin Demps, who plays defense, was tired. "You're put in that role, you're a professional so you practice it, get in there and do the right thing," Reid said. "We're fortunate we got the ball back there."
*On Alex diving for the first down on his first quarter 18-yard gain: "He did it with grace." Alex said he'd never done anything like that before.
*On Dontari Poe, beast: "You're in a 3-4 front. It stats with that guy right there. Then you kind of build out from there. He's showing that he's a heck of a football player. These last two weeks you've seen, he's a pretty dominant force in there."
*Reid said Arrowhead was so loud the ground was shaking on the sidelines. More on the fans later from AP contributor Herbie Teope.
