The Kansas City Chiefs got their second win in-a-row with their blowout performance against the New England Patriots, 41-14.

After losing the first two games and the injuries mounting, the 2014 season seemed all but lost in Kansas City but after handing the Patriots a butt whoopin’ that will never be forgotten, things are starting to look up again.

Andy Reid continues to impress with his game plans and play calling strategy. Once again, he played to the strengths of his team which are his running backs and tight ends, feeding his runners the ball early and getting his new weapon, Travis Kelce in positions to make plays.

By establishing the run, Reid was able to keep his quarterback effective in play action as well. Alex Smith was 10/11 on play action plays and found his third touch down of the game coming off a play action on third-and-goal.

It also contributed to Alex Smiths near perfect, 144.4 passer rating on the night. Smith and Reid in year two is shaping up to be even more special than year one, where Smith saw career highs in every category and earned himself a trip to the Pro Bowl.

This leads me to my first thought, the emergence of the offense.
