KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SCORE EPIC COMEBACK OVER CAROLINA PANTHERS!!! DEFENSE POWERS 20-17 VICTORY!!!
Today's performance from Kansas City's football team was mostly boring until a 4th quarter surge brought Chiefs a surprise win with a series of outstanding plays by the defense.
Hottie Charley inspires this quick roundup of the local home team action that usually attracts far more attention than any discussion of civic issues. Here's the rundown . . .
Player of the game: National Anthem hater Marcus Peters
An interception, strong play overall and a crucial takeaway makes up for a delay of game penalty for punting the ball into the stands in celebration.
Again, the 4th quarter was fun to watch with a comeback that brings the team to 7-2 and AFC West leadership.
A point of concern . . . Quarterback Alex Smith wasn't a factor and looks timid after a recent head injury. He was quick to release the ball and his run game was gone this time around. Still, a win is a win and this one propels the home team to one of the best in the NFL as the season moves toward more important play.
