Chiefs to Name Television Broadcast Bo Custom Blue Jays Jersey oth in Honor of Pro Football Hall of Famer Len Dawson

During an NFL Alumni dinner in Kansas City that celebrated the playing and broadcasting careers of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson Saturday night, Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt announced that the club is naming the television broadcast booth inside Arrowhead Stadium in honor of the Kansas City Chiefs legend.

“Len Dawson is a Kansas City icon and few people have transformed the Chiefs franchise and the city of Kansas City the way that Len has,” Hunt said. “For his outstanding contributions as a broadcaster, we are thrilled to recognize his career accomplishments by dedicating the Len Dawson Television Broadcast Booth.”

Dawson joined the Dallas Texans in 1962 and led the team to its first AFL Championship and moved to Kansas City with the franchise in 1963. Under Dawson’s guidance, the Chiefs won AFL Championships in 1962, 1966 and 1969. He led Kansas City to a 23-7 victory in Super Bowl IV over the Minnesota Vikings and was named the game’s MVP.

He started 158 regular season games and was selected to play in six AF Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey L All-Star Games as well as the 1972 AFC-NFC Pro Bowl. During his career with the Chiefs, he  Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey completed 2,115 of 3,696 passes for 28,507 yards and 237 touchdowns, all franchise records. Dawson retired after 19 seasons in the NFL, 14 with the Chiefs. He was inducted into the Chiefs Hall of Fame in 1979 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.

Dawson began his legendary broadcasting career in 1966 as a sports anchor with KMBC Radio and as sports dir Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey ector for KMBC-TV while still playing quarterback for the Chiefs. Following his retirement from professional football in 1975, Dawson joined NBC as a color analyst on NFL games until 1982. He joined the Chiefs Radio Network as a commentator in 1984, holding that role through the 2016 season. He is in his 34th season in 2017, which will be his final as a member of the Chiefs Radio Network crew.

While working NFL games for NBC, Dawson also embarked on what would become a 24-year run that spanned four decades (1977-2001) as the host of HBO’s popular “Inside the NFL.” “Inside the NFL” was cable television’s longest-running series and the first NFL-related program to air on cable.

For his contributions to broadcasting, Dawson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the recipient of the Hall’s Pete  Blue Jays Custom Jersey Rozelle Radio-Television Award in 2012. He was only the third individual in history to be inducted into the Pro Footb Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey all Hall of Fame as both a player and a broadcaster, joining Dan Dierdorf and Frank Gifford.

The broadcast booth will be completed and dedicated surrounding the Chiefs annual Alumni Game festi Blue Jays Jersey For Sale vities, which falls on Monday, October 30, when t Toronto Blue Jays he Chiefs play host to the Denver Broncos on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

Kareem Hunt Delivers Andrew Shaw Jersey  Yet Again in Win Over Eagles

The rookie tailback scored two touchdowns on Sunday

Kansas City Chiefs’ rookie running back Kareem Hunt was back at it on Sunday in Kansas City’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Expectations were high for Kansas City’s rookie tailback after his record-shattering performance in the season-opener against New England, and he didn’t disappoint.

Hunt, whose 246 yards from scrimmage last week were the most in NFL history for a player’s debut, tallied 109 yards scrimmage yards on Sunday. The rookie rushed for 81 yards on 13 carries a Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 11 Brendan Gallagher Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey nd two touchdowns while hauling in three catches for 28 yards.

His two scores made it five touchdowns on the season in just two games, again ushering the Univer Custom Montreal Canadiens Jersey sity of Toledo product into the record books, as he matched the NFL record for touchdowns through a player’s first two games since 192 Montreal Canadiens Merchandise 1. Jahvid Best (2010)  Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap and Billy Sims (1980) are the only other players to do so sin Carey Price Jersey ce then, with Dutch Sternaman holding the all-time record with six in 1920. 

Though despite his performance, Hunt isn’t getting caught up in the hype.

“Honestly, I just want to keep doing what I do,” Hunt said. “I just want to keep helping this team win, and that comes from the offensive line and everybody else striving to finish.”

Hunt’s first score of the game came on a 53-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, as the rookie took advantage of a mammoth hole created by the offensive line. Hunt handled the rest, outrunning the defense.

“It’s just about being able to make plays,” Hunt said. “You Andrew Shaw Jersey  have to take advantage of those situations and not be caught from behind or anything. I’m a guy that likes to finish off runs.”

The 53-yard scamper was Hunt’s second score of at least 50-plus yards in as many weeks.

While his speed has generated a good deal of attention, and for good reason, the Brendan Gallagher Jersey  208-pound Hunt also showed off his ability as a power back on Sunday.

His second touchdown of the afternoon, which put the game on ice for Kansas City, was a two-yard, pile-pushing run up the middle on the goal line.

“I pride myself in being a balanced running back with some speed, some power and just being able to finish,” Hunt said. “You have to fight for every yard.”

And Hunt does just that, as he’s already developing a reputation for breaking tackles and refusing to go to the ground.

He averaged an NFL-best 3.2 yards after contact in Week 1, and ran with that same tenacity on Sunday right out of the gate. On his first catch of the game early in the first quarter, Hunt broke six tackles for a 16-yard gain.

It’s the attitude in which Hunt plays the game, and one that displays a desire to prove himself on each and every play. The rookie said it best when describing his celebration following his second touchdown, where he laid down and pretended to be sound asleep in the end zone.

“Stop sleeping on me,” Hunt said. “That’s what I want to let everybody know.”

Through two games, Hunt has everyone’s attention.

Kansas City Defeats Philadelphia, 27-20, in Home Opene Andrew Shaw Jersey r

The Chiefs scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to remain unbeaten on Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) defeated the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1), 27-20, to remain unbeaten on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.

With the game tied at 13 points apiece midway through the fourth quarter, Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith found tight end Travis Kelce from 15 yards out for the go-ahead touchdown. Kelce hurtled a pair of defenders into the end zone for the score. 

 Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap Kelce’s go-ahead touchdown was set up by Kansas City’s second takeaway of the afternoon. 

Facing a third down deep in his own territory, Eagles’ quarterback Carson Wen Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 11 Brendan Gallagher Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey tz had his pass deflected by linebacker Justin Houston and intercepted by defensive tackle Chris Jones. It was the first interception of Jones’ career.

Rookie running back Kareem Hunt extended Kansas City’s lead late in the quarter with a 2-yard touchdown to secure the victory. 

The Eagles had a chance in the closing seconds of the game after recovering an onside kick, but Wentz’s pass to the end zone fell incomplete as time expired.

Hunt, whose 246 yards fro Brendan Gallagher Jersey m scrimmage last week marked the most ever in a player’s debut, also scored Kansas City’s first touchdown of the game with a 53-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter.

The rookie finished with 81 yards on 13 carries and three catches for 28 yards.

 Custom Montreal Canadiens Jersey 

Smith completed 21 of 28 passes for 251 yards and a touchdown. Kelce hauled in a team-leading eight catches for 103 yards.

Kicker Cairo Santos added two field goals for the Chiefs. Santos’ second kick, a 39-yarder in the closing seconds of the first half, was set up when long snapper James Winchester Andrew Shaw Jersey  forced Eagles’ return man Darren Sproles  Carey Price Jersey to fumble on a punt return. Fullback Ant Montreal Canadiens Merchandise hony Sherman recovered the fumble, leading to Santos’ field goal. 

The Chiefs’ defense recorded 6.0 sacks on the afternoon, with Jones tallying 3.0 by himself.

The Chiefs will look to continue their winning ways next week as they travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers.

Chiefs vs. Eagle Jadeveon Clowney Jersey s: 10 Observations

Here’ JJ Watt Jersey s what stood out Sunday afternoon

Here are 10 observations from the game:

1. Alex Smith’s toughness and leadership was on full display

There was a lot of talk throughout the week about the Eagles’ standout defensive front, led by two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

The talk was there for good reason, and they once again showed why they’re considered one of the best in the league Sunday afternoon—sackin More News g Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith four times and shutting down the Chiefs’ running game for much of the early part of the game.

Despite being consistently harassed, Smith finished 21 of 28 for 251 yards and a touchdown through the air, but it was his five-yard scramble on third-and-4 late in the game deep in Eagles’ territory that was the difference.

Smith sacrificed his body and made a play in a situation in which the game could have gone either way.

It was one of the key momentum-building plays of the game for the Chiefs, who would find the end zone just two plays later.

2. Travis Kelce showed he can fly

After Smith’s scramble, the next two plays inside the red zone went to tight end Travis Kelce, who would lead all players with eight receptions for 103 yards on the day.

On second-and-5 from the Eagles’ 15-yard line, Kelce took a shovel pass across the middle from Smith and turned it up the field. He then gloriously leapt in the air from the five-yard line over a few Eagles’ defensive players and landed in the end zone.

It was everything.

3. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt did it again

After his fantastic NFL debut last week over the Patriots, Hunt was challenged to show it wasn’t a fluke—that his performance wasn’t a byproduct of Andy Reid’s months of preparation for the Patriots.

That question was answered Sunday, when Hunt finished with 13 carries for 81 yards and two touchdowns, adding three catches for 28 yards as well.

The first touchdown came after Hunt had carried the ball seven times for just nine yards, and thanks to key blocks from left tackle Eric Fisher and left guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Hunt took his eighth handoff off the left side and raced 53 yards for the touchdown—showing off the speed that had him clocked as the fastest player in the NFL last week.

Hunt’s second touchdown showed another side.

First, there was speed, and then there was power.

With a little more than two minutes remaining in the game and with the Chiefs holding a seven-point lead at 20-13, Hunt wrestled his way through the Eagles’ defense for a two-yard score, which ultimately proved to be the difference.

4. Justin Houston takes over the fourth quarter

After a two-sack performance last week against the Patriots that he said wasn’t good enough, Justin Houston was out to prove something again this week against the Eagles.

And late in the game, it was once again Houston that sealed the deal.

Just three plays after Eagles’ quarterback Carson Wentz made a nice move in the open field on him to pick up a first down on a 13-yard scramble, Houston was able to get his hands on a screen pass that deflected up into the air and into the hands of second-year defensive lineman Chris Jones, who had a nice day himself.

The Jones’ interception, which is the first for the Chiefs this year, led to Kelce’s touchdown, which gave the Chiefs the 20-13 lead in the fourth quarter.

On the ensuing drive after the Chiefs’ touchdown, Houston sacked W Men’s Jadeveon Clowney Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey entz on first down to stall the drive before it even started. The Eagles went three-and-out following the Chiefs’ go-ahead touchdown with less than six minutes remaining in the game.

Wentz, who went just 1-of-7 for minus-3 yards against p Jadeveon Clowney Jersey ressure, finished the game 25 of 4 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Jersey 6 for 333 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He was sacked six times.

5. Chris Jones has the game of his life

There’s no denying that Jones had a fantastic rookie season, finishing as a Pro Football Focus darling and routinely causing havoc up front as he worked his way into the defensive rotation.

But he never had a day like he did on Sunday. 

Jones’ marquee moment last year was probably his sack of Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton that led to an improbable victory that day, or it was his affinity for getting the crowd going before a few plays in the playoff game over the Steelers.

But it’s what he did after the snap Sunday that people will remember.

Jones finished with three sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception—displaying an inability to be contained in a game in which he needed to step up, as did everyone, with All-Pro safety Eric Berry being out.

Jones, who had just two sacks during a great rookie season, has already surpassed that in just two games this year.

6. Smith’s late 35-yard strike to Chris Conley was indicative of much more

With a little more than four minutes left in the game and with the Chiefs already holding a seven-point lead at 20-13, the idea was the Chiefs could run the clock a little bit and perhaps get into field goal range for Cairo Santos.

The Chiefs had the ball at midfield after a Smith run to the outside on first down went for no gain.

As the Chiefs faced a second-and-10 at their own 44-yard line, they had other plans than to accept just running some time off the c Men’s Nike J.J. Watt Houston Texans Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Navy Blue Jersey lock and basically being conservative.

They went for it, and it paid off.

Smith and receiver Chris Conley hooked up for a deep 35-yard strike down the right sideline, which was an option play based on the coverage, and Conley disguised it perfectly for Smith, who hit him in stride for the chunk play that set up the Chiefs’ game-sealing touchdown with Hunt.

It was a play that meant much more than just 35 yards. It showed the Chiefs’ offense will attack to finish.

7. Center Mitch Morse left early with injury

Late in the second half, Morse left the game with what Reid called a “foot sprain” after the game.

Morse was replaced by Zach Fulton, who had a key block on the Kelce 15-yard touchdown reception on the shovel pass, which was the first play Fulton was on the field.

8. Long-snapper James Winchester forced a fumble late in first half

With all the second-half fireworks and standout performances late in the game, the play made by long-snapper James Winchester late in the f Deshaun Watson Jersey irst half shouldn’t go unnoticed.

While covering a punt deep in Eagles’ territory after the two-minute warning, Winchester forced the ball loose from returner Darren Sproles, and it was recovered by Anthony Sherman.

A few plays later, Santos hit a 39-yard field goal and the Chiefs were able to take a 6-3 into halftime.

9. Daniel Sorensen channeled his inner-Travis Kelce

One of the guys who was going to be counted upon after the season-ending loss of veteran All-Pro safety Eric Berry is Daniel Sorensen, who finished Sunday’s game tied for the team-lead with six tackles.

Sorensen also led the Chiefs with three quarterback hits, and one of them is a play nobody will soon forget.

Blitzing off the right side of the offensive line, Sorensen leapt up over the Eagles’ blocker and was able to get a hand on Wentz, who quickly threw an incomplete pass.

It was eerily similar to the way in which Kelce leapt up over the defensive players for the touchdown.

10. The Chiefs’ followed up the offensive explosion in Week 1 nicely

The Chiefs had the tall-task this week of trying to follow up an impressive 537-yard offensive output against the Patriots in Week 1. That performance put them on pace to shatter the all-time NFL record for total yards in a season.

All signs were there for a let-down, but despite a slow start, the Chiefs still put up big numbers against the Eagles.

Overall, the Chiefs picked up 344 yards on 51 plays, which is good for an average of 6.7 yards per play. While it’s not the 8.3 they had against the Patriots, it’s still a phenomenal number.

In the two games, Smith is a combined 49 of 63 (78 percent) for 619 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s on fire.

Whether it’s Smith through the air, Hunt on the ground, or Houston and Jones getting after the opposing quarterback, the Chiefs are finishing on both sides of the ball.

It’s a great combination.

Chiefs’ Players Motivated to Win for Andy Reid  Jadeveon Clowney Jersey Against His Former Team

Reid spent 14 years as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles

“That’s who we were doing it for.”

Much like the Week 1 victory over the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots meant a little bit more because of the opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs’ 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles may have meant a litt JJ Watt Jersey le more as well, but for a different reason.

As tight end Travis Kelce said, the players in the locker room were very aware of the fact that the Chiefs were playing against the team that head coach Andy Reid had spent 14 years leading before joining the Chiefs in 2013.

“We know his past and we know this game meant a lot to him, and sure enough, we were there and we had his back,” Kelce said.

Not only was Reid facing his former team in the Eagles, which he led to 140 victories in his 14 years there, but he was also going up a former assistant in Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson.

“He tried to play  Men’s Nike J.J. Watt Houston Texans Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Navy Blue Jersey cool about it the whole time, but I know we needed this game for him,” defensive lineman Chris Jones added. “I know how much this game meant to him and I know how big this is to him.

“They come to our field—we had to show up for him today. It was a great team effort.”

The effort was there and the Chiefs showed some grit to work through a slow start, but nobody in the locker room was calling this a perfect performance by any means, although it did seem like the kind of character-building game that will serve the team well moving forward.

“The entire team came together,” Kelce said of the difference in the second half, when the Chiefs scored 21 of their 27 points. “Everyone started to do their job, we started to get some momentum going and from there it’s just guys making plays.”

One of the guys that began making plays that proved to be a difference in the game was quarterback Alex Smith, who finished 21 of 25 for 251 yards and a touchdown—following up a big-time performance against the Patriots last week.

Despite taking four sacks and constantly being under pressure by a solid Eagles’ defensive front, Smith kept firing away.

“He was resilient as he went and took some big hits there,” Reid said of Smith after the game. “He rebounded and kept playing, and first of all,  Jadeveon Clowney Jersey he kept the guys around him fighting and that’s an important trait when you’re a quarterback in this league to get everybody, not only yourself, but everybody around you to rise up and continue to fight when things aren’t going great.”

One of the key plays from Smith that ultimately proved to be the difference and showed everyone what he’s about was a third-and-four scramble for a first down late in the fourth quarter.

At the time, the game was tied and could have gone either direction.

Smith sold out on the run and it’s the kind of equity-building play that gains respect in the locker room, not that Smith needs it after consistently showing this same kind of determination ever since he first arrived in Kansas City fou Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Jersey r years ago.

Two plays later, the Chiefs were in the end zone with a lead after a 15-yard reception from Kelce.

“Alex is one of those fearless-leader types and that was a moment where the play broke down and he was going to sacrifice his body to make sure we got this first down, and everyone rallied behind that,” receiver Chris Conley explained.

On the drive following the Smith-to-Kelce touchdown, t More News he Chiefs had the ball at their own 44-yard line with a little less than five minutes left in the game, and they were facing a second-and-10.

Rather than be conservative and run some clock, Smith hit Conley for a gain of 35 yards deep down the right sideline.

“That was Alex and Conley just working together,” Reid said after the game. “The last time those two hooked up (on that play) was the Rams’ preseason game last year. It was the same play. They just give each other the eye and change it up a little bit and went for it. They have some options on that play and it worked out well. I thought Chris did a great job at disguisin Men’s Jadeveon Clowney Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey g that he wasn’t getting the ball— man coverage. He gave no indications with his hands or eyes he was getting the football, and it paid off.”

“Alex gave me eyes, and said, ‘Hey, it’s time to go, it’s time to go right now,’” Conley recalled. “It was a great ball.”

“It was a nice adju Deshaun Watson Jersey stment on the fly there, had a call and a lot of options on and had a good look there with Chris, had a lot of faith in him,” Smith said after the game. “We’d been talking about it all game that they would come up and challenge us, and finally they did there at the four-minute.

“I think those are situations in the past we haven’t stayed aggressive and it was nice to be able to hit that today. I think it played a big part in the game.”

The Conley reception led to a two-yard touchdown from rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who had another solid performance Sunday after an all-time NFL debut against the Patriots.

It all led to the Chiefs picking up their second win in as many games.

“It was a big win,” Jones said. “Every win is big. When you get your wins early in the season, they’re going to mean a lot at the end of the season, so we just need to keep stacking and keep building to get better.”

“We have a lot of improving to do,” Houston added. “We’ve got to get better. I think we’re going to continue to prove the mindset of the locker room and the guys in here is we want to do better, and we will do better.”
 
They were good enough to win for their coach on Sunday, but as it was also apparent last week, the self-congratulations won’t last long.

The goals for this team are bigger than intrinsic victories that don’t also build towards something more tangible and shiny.
