Andy Reid’s opening drive script was again proven to be one of the NFL’s best, as the Chiefs scored in less than three minutes, using a couple of passes that each went for over 20 yards — and a touchdown catch by Rashee Rice.
The defense played like the league’s best. Keeping the Miami running game quiet for the majority of the game — and slowing down Tyreek Hill.
Hill still put up productive numbers, but the way the Chiefs' defenders were covering him made a difference: a cornerback playing man coverage with a safety over the top. At times, three to four defenders would immediately be on Hill after a catch.
The defensive play of the year might have happened right before halftime. Trent McDuffie forced a fumble after a pass to Hill. Mike Edwards picked it up. Then as Hill wrapped him up, he lateraled the ball to Bryan Cook — who took the ball 59 yards for a touchdown.
This play comes right out of Superstar KO mode on EA Sports’ “Madden” video game.
