Usually when a team wins there is an obvious MVP but I do not think that's the case with the Kansas City Chiefs 34-15 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Chiefs had nice contributions from a number of players.
So, who should be the MVP of the Chiefs-Dolphins game? Your options ....
He played just 15 snaps but had seven touches, including six catches, and two touchdowns. He essentially replaced Jamaal Charles' receiving contributions.

The Chiefs needed to stick to the ground game and they did to the tune of 32 carries for 132 yards for Knile Davis. He apparently did not grade out well according to some but those who watched the game felt his impact.
@ArrowheadPride Knile, mainly because I believe he had the biggest shoes to fill and delivered in every way (save for a fumble).— Nick Kleppe (@nick_kleppe) September 22, 2014
Sure, he took some sacks but 19-of-25 for 186 yards and three touchdowns to no picks is hard to ignore. The Chiefs were also 9-of-16 on third down.
@ArrowheadPride Alex. He stood in under heavy pressure, delivered the ball with poise. W/o Alex we don't win.— GasMan (@cevanj) September 22, 2014
I loved his coaching job this week and last. Using McKnight the way he did (which angered the Dolphins) looks brilliant now.
@ArrowheadPride Andy Reid. Loved the gameplan. No excuses. Had his team ready to play. Big win on the road.— Zilla (@hoggzilla25) September 22, 2014
Before the Chiefs started to pull away, this was a field position game and Colquitt did a terrific job averaging nearly 50 yards per punt, including two over 60 yards.
@ArrowheadPride Have to consider Dustin Colquitt, too. Early punts helped win battle of field position as offense worked through slow start.— Herbie Teope (@HerbieTeope) September 22, 2014
The entire defense
Bob Sutton gets a nod as well. The Chiefs can win a lot of games holding their opponent to 15 points.
