Lets get nasty: Chiefs' Jeff Allen aids chippier O-line from The Kansas City Star
Allen, a mild-mannered sort for most of his career, grabbed Ansah, pointed his finger and jawed at him. And when Lions defensive end Jason Jones gave him a quick one-handed shove, Allen pushed back and was whistled for a personal-foul penalty.
"Just got a little heated, got to give him a little shove after the play," said Allen, who declined to get into specifics about what he said. "I didn't appreciate it, so I just gave him a few words. Probably should have kept my cool a little bit."
Maybe. But the penalty was moot. Only 32 seconds remained in the half, and the Chiefs led 24-3 at that point. If there was a time to sacrifice some yards for the greater good — to defend your guy — that was it.
"It's part of the game," Allen said. "Our job is to protect our QB. I was just standing up for him."
