12/17/2018
More
Back with episode 11-3. Another victory that was truly never in doubt.

Newsflash: They are. Going through the game like usual, here were some of the topics I touched on • Mahomes being a wizard early on • Pressures vs. sacks • Chiefs DL having their way...

Philcember: It’s good to be back Man, what a game. This recap was fresh off of the game, so the thoughts are a little more scattered than recent weeks. Like usual, we take it step by step on how the game happened. Tough to imagine a worse start than the Chargers had. Head coach Anthony Lynn thinking that three points would make a difference to start the game was the ultimate head-scratcher. A 50-yard field goal at Heinz field at night is not one of the smarter things you can do. That’s...
