Those same qualities, with Bieniemy as offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, have helped the Chiefs to a fast start despite having a first-year starting quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs are one of the NFL’s three 3-0 teams and are leading the league in scoring at more than 39 points per game.
For this exercise, I’ll look at the best players from this group as they would go forward the rest of the season. While past performances are important, they can’t be taken as a pure indicator of future success.
Kelce has three career games with more than 130 yards receiving, and two of those have come against the Broncos over the past two seasons -- 160 yards on Christmas night in 2016 and 133 the day before Halloween last season.
Despite the defensive question marks, it’s hard to ignore the best offense as it moves the ball at a remarkable rate. With an impressive three-week resume, Kansas City beat a popular offseason favorite in the Chargers, an offensive powerhouse Steelers team on the road and an upstart 49ers squad with Garoppolo on the field for most of the contest.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was destined to be a better athlete than his dad Pat, a former MLB pitcher who schooled him on the value of athletics and the game of life at a very young age.
Dee Ford, the surveyor—from Kent, England, now living in Gillingham—has been on Twitter since 2008. Her handle is @dee_ford, very similar to Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford’s former handle, @dee_ford_.
“I could come out here every day and do this,” Hill said. “It means a lot to me to give back because I grew up in a small town and I was kind of poor, so I know what it’s like to live with no lights and with no food. I don’t want anybody to ever have to go through that – nobody – and especially not a kid.”
Around the league
The guys who make the NFL schedule might want to avoid Mike Zimmer at the next league meeting, because the Vikings coach is not happy with them right now.
Before the season began, us NFL experts here at SB Nation decided to make our foolproof predictions for 2018. Seven of us picked who we thought would win Super Bowl 53, and we wound up with six different teams: the Steelers, Patriots, Saints, Vikings, Falcons, and Jaguars.
After playing his first career game in Sunday’s victory over Cincinnati, defensive end Efe Obada came away with a sack, an interception and a game ball courtesy of head coach Ron Rivera.
The texts came on Monday or Tuesday, much in the way a coach lays out the work week for his players leading up to that Sunday’s game. It was the schedule for the practice week and Saturday’s mock game, and the sender was Jameis Winston.
Turns out it wasn’t the helmet rule that has become a lightning rod this season but a slight rewording and new emphasis on the rule against a player landing on a quarterback with his full body weight. Costly roughing the passer calls have been a sharp red line in a handful of pivotal games so far. Coaches and players are speaking out.
We have more on that game below, as well as information you need to know about all the practice reports from around the league on Wednesday, including Marcus Mariota being named the Titans’ starter for their showdown with the Eagles on Sunday.
On Thursday, reporters Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer will become the first all-female broadcast team to cover an NFL game.
In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
Where does this defense go wrong to be at the bottom of the league after starting so hot? Why can’t that side of the ball seem to play a complete game?
Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes breaking through a resistance level by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers. This week against the San Francisco 49ers, they may have established a new support level.
