3. Kansas City Chiefs
Once again, the Kansas City Chiefs reminded us of their dominance on Sunday. With a record of 8-4 entering the game, they had the Las Vegas Raiders nipping at their heels with a record of 6-6. A win from the Raiders would have made things incredibly interesting in the AFC West.
Kansas City, however, had other plans. They knew a win would put them in firm control of their division while also pretty much burying the pesky Raiders. And they came out ready to make that happen.
The Chiefs had a fumble recovery for a touchdown on the first play of the game as Mike Hughes took a Josh Jacobs fumble back 23 yards for a score. Darrell Williams scored as well in the first quarter but it was a 21-point explosion in the second quarter that blew the game open.
Josh Gordon scored on a one-yard pass, which was sandwiched by two touchdowns out of Clyde Edwards-Helaire. That 35-3 lead made this one of the least interesting games to watch in the second half as all they tried to do was leave without any injuries.
The Chiefs were a team that was struggling early in the season but they’re firing on all cylinders on offense again. Even more frightening is the way their defense has come together.
