Arrowhead Pride Postgame Show
Arrowhead Pride WATCH PARTY (Chiefs-Rams)
The NFL did not want to give either the Rams or the Chiefs an advantage by giving them an additional week to play at altitude in Denver, according to sources.
Mahomes’ girlfriend Brittany Matthews shed some light on the situation in a postgame Instagram post, explaining that her stepfather had died after collapsing outside of Arrowhead Stadium before the game.
For the first time all season, the Chiefs defense might have outshined their offense. Not only did the Chiefs sack Josh Rosen five times -- with two of those coming from Chris Jones -- but they also picked him off twice, which set up one of Kansas City’s three touchdowns. Although the Chiefs offense was held in check for most of the game, Tyreek Hill still managed to put up some huge numbers with 137 total yards (117 receiving yards, 20 rushing yards) and two receiving touchdowns.
If this is real, with Justin Houston and Dee Ford waging ready-set-go races to the quarterback only to be occasionally beaten there by Chris Jones, then all of the worries about Bob Sutton and a sieve defense are no more relevant than whatever motivates people to buy all of the bottled water at Target whenever a half inch of snow is in the forecast.
Hunt had what could be termed a modest game by his lofty standards, but he was still very efficient on a per-touch basis. The second-year back has seen under 20 carries in all but one game this season, which limits his overall fantasy upside to an extent.
The ultra-reliable Fitzgerald passed Terrell Owens for second on the career list Sunday with a 15-yard reception late in the fourth quarter of Arizona’s 26-14 loss to Kansas City. The catch put him at 15,939 yards for his 15-year career, and after finishing with six grabs for 50 yards Sunday, he stands at 15,952.
Hill found the end zone for the second time on Sunday and immediately turned and sprinted to one of our NFL on CBS cameramen in the end zone.
Kupp’s left knee buckled on a pass play early in the fourth quarter. He was down on the field for several minutes before being helped into the locker room. While coach Sean McVay did not offer any details about the extent of the injury, he did say, “I don’t think it’s good.” The Rams face the Chiefs in Mexico City next Monday night. -- ESPN.com
Pugh left the game in the third quarter of the Cardinals’ 26-14 loss to the Chiefs with a knee injury and was immediately ruled out for the game.
Around the league
“It’s a real sweet win,” Lewis said of Tennessee’s 34-10 triumph over New England, per NFL Network’s Michael Giardi. “Especially when you used to be there and they didn’t want to bring you back. Definitely real sweet.”
Rams receiver Cooper Kupp’s outlook isn’t bright after he went down with a knee injury in the second half of Los Angeles’ 36-31 win over the Seattle Seahawks. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the initial concern is Kupp suffered a torn ACL, according to a source informed of the situation.
With his 30-yard reception in the second quarter against the Cleveland Browns, Jones became the fastest to reach 10,000 receiving yards in a career, doing so in 104 games. Jones surpassed former Detroit Lionsreceiver Calvin Johnson, who held the previous mark at 115 games.
In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
The Kansas City Chiefs extended their season record to 9-1 with a 26-14 victory against the Arizona Cardinals. Patrick Mahomes broke Len Dawson’s single-season passing touchdown record, but otherwise looked mortal for the first time this season. Still — with key plays in critical moments from the Chiefs defense — Kansas City came away with a two-score victory.
