The Kansas City Chiefs took down the Philadelphia Eagles at Arrowhead Stadium over the weekend and moved to 2-0 on the year. The Chiefs won the game 27-20 and now sit in a three-way tie atop the AFC West.

How ’bout them Chiefs baby? Andy Reid and his Kansas City Chiefs defeated his old employer in the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and the good vibes are flowing in Kansas City as a result. No, the game wasn’t perfect, but a win is a win and that’s all that matters at the end of the day, right?

The offense had nice flashes, mostly in the fourth quarter, and the defense did their part in helping the Chiefs stay competitive in this one. Chiefs Kingdom knew it wouldn’t be easy keeping youngster Carson Wentz and his arsenal of weapons at bay, but they did a nice job of keeping them out of the end zone for the most part.

With another game in the books for the KC Chiefs, let’s take a look at the report card from this week’s game. Who passed, who failed, and who got a mediocre grade that their folks might consider tacking on the fridge?

Let’s start with the worst grade from the weekend.


The Kansas City Chiefs put up a field goal on their first drive of the game and that would be it until they tacked on another field goal late in the second quarter. That second field goal occurred because of an Eagles fumble on special teams, not because the Chiefs drove down the field.

After that first drive where the Chiefs marched 73 yards down the field in eight plays, their next three drives resulted in punts. Kareem Hunt had about nine yards on eight carries by half time and fans had to be wondering if Hunt had already been figured out by the opposition.

Fortunately, the second half offense’s grade is much better. The first half offense, however, did not do well at all. They put up just six points, but their defense definitely picked them up and kept them in this game.
