The Kansas City Chiefs are making it look easy this season. The defense is stopping everything they can and the offense is getting better every week. Andy Reid couldn’t  have thought he was going to have this kind of success so early in Kansas City. Once he landed his quarterback, I think the Chiefs were off and running and weren’t going to look back.

Alex Smith continues to make some  mistakes, he has to stop throwing interceptions, he hasn’t thrown many (2 Yesterday) but, he has been fortunate the turn overs haven’t come back to bite him. He had a decent game and he should be buying gifts for his defense every time they save his butt.

Smith had a great game if you take away the picks. He threw for 288 yards and 3 touchdowns against what used to be a good NFL defense. The Giants looked like a team that didn’t know what hit them with the Chiefs defense. They brought the pressure to Manning and held him to just 217 yards and 1 touchdown.

Sure, you can say the Giants offense isn’t any good this season but you also have to say the Chiefs defense is playing great this season. Reid has to be happy with what he is seeing from his team this season. The Chiefs could be play off bound, if they can continue to play the way they have in  the first quarter of this season.

Andy Reid was the right guy at the right time for the Kansas City Chiefs and their record is a direct reflection of that.
