Chiefs get flagged for sticking up for Alex Smith

New, comments

Alex Smith is slowly starting to find his legs. He rushed for a few yards to the right side and although he slid he was hit hard by the Saints’ Kenny Vaccaro. There was no flag called on the play.

A few plays later, Alex ran to his left and got the first down and was hit as he stepped out of bounds. While it appeared the hit was legal as Alex was in bounds at the time, his Chiefs teammates took exception to the hit and went after the Saints.

I couldn’t tell quite what happened. My seat in the press box is way up here and the broadcast didn’t show much but I love that so much. That’s the sign of a team that is doing well and is tight with each other.

Meanwhile, maybe the refs will notice the three late hits on Alex Smith in the first half...
