Chiefs Stomp the Patriots: Week 1 Review and Season Outlook

Last Thursday, NFL fans across the country received a gift that can seldom be matched: the first NFL football game of the season. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt was pivotal to the Chiefs’ success on Thursday, finishing the night with 246 yards and three touchdowns. Additionally, Chiefs’ all-star wide receiver Tyreek Hill played an excellent game, racking up 133 yards and scoring one touchdown. Despite the Chiefs’ lack of interceptions, the Chiefs’ defense managed to shut down Brady, sacking him three times during the game. Although the Chiefs’ were able to dominate the Patriots defensively, the team lost a major asset when pro-bowl safety Eric Berry ruptured his Achilles tendon during Thursday night’s game. Only time will tell how Berry’s injury will affect the Chiefs this year. Currently, the Chiefs have a lot of young players, including Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters, who will have to step up and rise to the occasion with the loss of Berry. Next week, the Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz are coming to Arrowhead Stadium. Wentz, who threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, will look to use Berry’s injury to give his team the edge. Regardless, the Chiefs’ offense proved this week that they can compete with the best team in the league. So far, Kareem Hunt has shown great potential and could prove to be a huge factor in the backfield. Tyreek Hill continues to impress with his lightning fast speed and explosive footwork. How will the Chiefs perform this year? That’s a hard question to answer at this point in the season, but things are looking bright for the Kansas City Chiefs.
