Chiefs vs. Texans: Gam Lamar Miller Jersey e Preview

The Chiefs look to remain undefeated on Sunday against Houston

GAMETIME: 7:30 p.m. CT on Sunday, October 7

LOCATION: NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas  

HOW TO WATCH: NBC (KSHB local)

HOW TO LISTEN: 101.1 The Fox

The Kansas City Chiefs are on a roll. 

They’ve tallied four wins in as many weeks to begin the 2017 campaign, standing alone as the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, and will put that perfect record on the line yet again on Sunday night against t Shane Lechler Jersey he Houston Texans.

The Chiefs are all too familiar with Houston, facing them four times in the past five years, and have enjoyed their fair share of success. Kansas City won the first three matchups in that span, including a playoff victory in 2015, before dropping the most recent contest last season.

With the exception of the playoff victory, a 30-0 rout at NRG Stadium, the other three games have all come do Men’s Lamar Miller Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey wn to the wire, as each was decided by a touchdown or less.

Though while the Chiefs have seen plenty of the Texans over the years, they haven’t seen a team quite like this.

Houston is led by rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who took over under center in the second half of the Texans’ season opener.

Watson went through some in Houston Texans Shirts itial growing pains as a starter, posting a 68.3 passer rating through his first two games of action, but has caught fire since. 

The Clemson product has led the Texans to a league-leading 90 points in the past two weeks, tallying the most first downs (56) and second-most yards (862) as a team in the NFL.

As impressive as those numbers are, Watson hasn’t faced a defense like Kansas City’s so far in his young career.

The C Men’s Nike Houston Texans Will Fuller V Elite Vapor Untouchable Color Rush Navy Blue Jersey hiefs are holding opposing passers to a 72.8 passer rating, the sixth-best mark in the NFL, and have done so against some of the best the league has to offer in Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and Kirk Cousins.  

RELATED: Chiefs vs. Texas: Five Things to Watch

In their games against opponents other than Kansas City, those passers have combined to post a quarterback rating of 108.6.

Kansas City beat all four, and will try to make it a fifth on Sunday with Watson.

The rookie signal caller is dynamic, creating an intriguing challenge for the Chiefs’ defense.

He’s thrown for 811 yards and seven touchdowns in his three and a half games of work, while  Houston Texans Youth Jersey running for 148 yards – the most among quarterbacks – and two scores.

He seemed to develop a connection with receiver DeAndre Hopkins last week, finding the Pro Bowl wide out 10 times for 107 yards, and will likely look his way again on Sunday.

Hopkins has been targeted more than any other receiver in football this season , and has a touchdown in each of his three regular season games against Kansas City.

One Lamar Miller Jersey  of the players responsible for slowing down Hopkins will be cornerback Marcus Peters, who has four interceptions and eight passes defensed in four career games against Houston (including the postseason).

Peters recorded an interception on the first play of his career against the Texans in 2015, another in the playoffs that season and two more a year later.

His four interceptions since entering the league are tied with just one other player as the most against a single opponent in that span.

He’ll look to build on that total on Sunday, as Watson – as good as he’s been – has thrown a pick in three of his four games this season.

A takeaway would turn things over to the Chiefs’ offense, which ranks amongst the best in the league.

Kansas City is averaging the second-most points (35.5) and yards (405.3) per game in the NFL, scoring at least 27 points three times, and has been at its best in the fourth quarter, tallying a league-high 54 points.

That offensive success has been led by quarterback Alex Smith, who is enjoying the best statistical start to a season in his career.

Smith leads the NFL in passer rating (124.2) and completion percentage (76.0 percent), ranks third in passing yards per attempt (8.82) and tied for third in passing touchdowns (8). He’s yet to throw an interception, and has rushed for 89 yards and another score on the ground.

Simply put, he’s been one of the best quarterbacks – if not the best – in the NFL to this point.

RELATED: Chiefs vs. Texans: 10 Stats to Know

Also in the midst of a stellar campaign is rookie running back Karee Will Fuller V Jersey m Hunt, who leads the NFL with 502 yards rushing.

Hunt has been a factor in each of Kansas City’s four games, recording 100 or more yards from scrimmage in all of them.

Smith, Hunt and the rest of the Chiefs offense will face a talented Texans’ defense that’s especially skilled up front, as defensive ends J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney are two of the best pass rushers in the league.

It promises to be an exciting matchup between two teams hitting their stride, and will also give Kansas City a chance to match a franchise record.

The Chiefs have won eight straight away from Arrowhead Stadium, just one shy of the all-time mark set between the 1966-67 seasons.

Kansas City has averaged 29.8 points per game in that span, while Smith has put together a 106.0 passer rating in those contests.

It’s been an impressive run, and if the Chiefs can continue to produce offensively while holding Watson in check, it has every chance of continuing on Sunday.

Alex Smith tossed three touchdowns in the victory

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans, 42-34, to remain undefeated on Sunday night at NRG Stadium.

The Chiefs scored on eight of 10 offensive possessio Men’s Nike Green Bay Packers Martellus Bennett Color Rush Vapor Untouchable Alternate Yellow Jersey ns, tallying 450 total yards of offense, as quarterback Alex Smith completed 29 of 37 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns.

Smith found running back Charcandrick West for a pair of scores in the first half and wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas for another in the fourth quarter.

Tyreek Hill put an exclamation point on the victory, returning a punt 8 Packers Jersey For Sale 2 yards for a touchdown and Men’s Nike David Bakhtiari Green Bay Packers Color Rush Vapor Untouchable Jersey Green  effectively putting the game out of reach.

Chiefs vs. Texans: 10 Observat JA Happ Jersey ions

Here’s what stood out Sunday night against the Texans

The Kansas City Chiefs moved to 5-0 on the season Sunday night with their 42-34 victory over the Houston Texans.

It’s the ninth-straight road victory for the Chiefs, who have now won 27 of their last 31 regular-season games.

Here are 10 observations from the game:

1. The Chiefs answered back…like good teams do

The Texans put up a fight as rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson kept them in the game with three fourth-quarter touchdowns, but the Chiefs responded like good teams do.

After Watson found the speedy Will Fuller deep down the field for a 48-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, which brought the game to within one possession, the Chiefs responded with a six-play, 70-yard drive that culminated with a De’Anthony Thomas 10-yard touchdown reception.

Then, after the Chiefs’ defense forced a three-and-out, they were given another opportunity to respond in the return game.

And they did.

2. Tyreek Hill did what Tyreek Hill does

Earlier in the week, Chiefs’ special team’s coordinator Dave Toub said they were going to have some opportunities in the punt return game this week, and All-Pro returner Tyreek Hill got an opportunity midway through the fourth quarter.

Hill made the Texans pay for kicking him the ball. He went 82 yards around the right side to break the game open and give the Chiefs a 39-20 lead with less than seven minutes remaining in the game.

On his 15 career touchdowns, Hill is now averaging a ridiculous 47.8 yards per play, according to Randall Liu of NFL Communications.

3. Alex Smith and the Chiefs’ offense shined

The Chiefs came out and took care of business offensively early as they scored on all five of their first-half possessions, while Alex Smith went 18 of 24 for 207 yards and two touchdowns. He finished the game 29 of 37 for 324 yards with three touchdowns.

Maybe what was most impressive in the first half was Smith’s efficiency on third down, leading the offense to convert 7 of 10 third downs in the first 30 minutes of the game, and three of those were on third-and-11 or longer.

Smith’s two first-half touchdowns gave him 10 for the season. His 10th touchdown pass last year didn’t come until Week 12 against the Broncos.

Smith’s MVP candidacy went up another level after Sunday’s performance.

4. Charcandrick West had a first half to remember

West, the fourth-year running back out of Abilene Christian, only had two catches for 12 yards in the first half of Sunday night’s game, but he made both of them count as he found the end zone on each of them. West had just three receiving touchdowns in his career before Sunday’s game.

On the first touchdown, West showed an ability to catch a contested pass with Smith rolling outside of the pocket on a broken play in the red zone.

And on the second, West showed some nice open-field moves.

And not to be outdone by either of those touchdowns, West had a fantastic blitz pickup as well—coming across the formation to make the play.

5. The Chiefs defense gets a key takeaway in the first half

With the Chiefs already leading 13-0 with about five minutes left in the first half, second-year Chiefs’ defensive lineman Chris Jones stripped the ball out of the hands of Texans’ rookie running back D’Onta Foreman, and it was picked up by veteran linebacker and Texas native, Derrick Johnson.

It was the third forced fumble of the year for Jones, which now has him tied for the league-lead in that category.

The Chiefs were able to get a field goal out of the great field position and took a 16-0 lead late in Justin Smoak Jersey  the first half.

6. Injuries piled up for both teams Sunday night

On the Chiefs’ first offensive drive, the Texans lost two of their best defensive players in linebacker Whitney Mercilus and defensive lineman J.J. Watt.

Mercilus left with a chest injury, and Watt left with a knee injury.

Both players were quickly ruled out for the rest of the game.

For the Chiefs, receiver Chris Conley suffered what Reid said after the game is most-likely a ruptured Achilles on the onside kick attempt late in the game. Conley had three catches for 46 yards on the night.

Reid provided an update on all of the injured players following the g Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 31 Joe Biagini Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey ame.

7. Cam Erving got the start at right guard

For the first time this season, the newly-acquired Cam Erving got the start for the Chiefs along the offensive line. Erving got the nod at right guard as Laurent Duvernay-Tardif missed the game with a knee injury.

Erving came over in a trade with the Cleveland Browns before the Chiefs’ final preseason game. He was a first-round pick (No. 19 overall) of the Browns in 2015.

8. Reggie Ragland showed some nice closing speed

On a Watson second-down pass attempt early in the second quarter, Chiefs’ linebacker Reggie Ragland read the play-action  JA Happ Jersey and went off like a missile towards Watson, who was rolling outside of the pocket.

Watson threw it away to avoid the sack.

It was a great display of speed and awareness from the newly-acquired linebacker, who came over from the Buffalo Bills in a trade before the fourth and final preseason game.

Ragland missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury suffered in training camp, and plays like the one early in the second quarter where he accelerated downhill to make a play make it look like he’s close to being back to the player who won the SEC Defensive Player of the Year award in 2015—the same year Alabama won a national championship.

9. Ross Travis makes some plays for the Chiefs’ offense

Coming into the game, tight end Ross Travis had just two targets on the year and three receptions for 15 yards in his career, but he made a few plays for the Chiefs Sunday night in some big situations.

Travis finished with two receptions for 26 yards, and it was his 18-yard reception earl Toronto Blue Jays y in the fourth quarter that was part of a huge response from the Chiefs’ offense after Watson and the Texans brought it to within one possession on the Fuller touchdown.

It was particularly important for Travis to make plays as Travis Kelce didn’t play at all in the second half after he left the game after being evaluated for a concussion.

Before he left the game, Kelce also caught eight passes for 98 yards—all of which came in the first half. Four of the eight receptions Kelce had were for third-down conversions.

10. Harrison Butker went a perfect 5 of 5 on field goal attempts

It’s been quite the introduction to the Chiefs for new kicker Harrison Butker, who  Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 33 J A Happ Jersey Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey hit the game-winner last week against the Redskins, and then went 5 for 5 against the Texans on Sunday night.

Butker hit from 35, 42, 41, 35, and 49 yards to help the Chiefs get the 42-34 victory.

Injury Update: Coach JA Happ Jersey  Reid Provides an Update on Travis Kelce, Others

Reid provided more information o Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 31 Joe Biagini Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey n Travis Kelce, Chris Conley, and the other injured players from Sunday night’s win

The Kansas City Chiefs were dealt a handful of injuries in Sunday night’s win over the Houston Texans, notably to tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Chris Conley.

Kelce, who hauled in eight catches for 98 yards in the first half, did not return to action in the second half as he was evaluated f Justin Smoak Jersey or a concussion.

Josh Donaldson Jersey ead Coach Andy Reid provided an update on the All-Pro tight end following the game.  

“Kelce has a concussion. He was clear JA Happ Jersey ed by the UNC (unaffiliated neurological consultants), but then when he came in at halftime he complained about his memory,” Reid said. “He remembered everything in the (injury) tent, but didn’t have it once we got inside (the locker room), so we chose to hold him out.”

Conley had three catches for 46 yards prior to injuring his Achilles tendon with just over two minutes remaining in the game.

“It looks like he has a ruptured Achilles,” Reid said. “That was the on-field observation there, but they’re pretty accurate with those.”

Wide receiver Albert Wilson was dealing with a leg spasm towards the end of the game.

“We’ll just have to see on that,” Reid said. “He came back in Toronto Blue Jays  and then went back out again – it started bothering him.”

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill (ankle) and linebacker Justin Houston (calf) sustained minor injuries but are both fine, accordi Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 33 J A Happ Jersey Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey ng to Reid.

Safety Steven Terrell suffered a concussion covering on special teams on the game’s opening kickoff.  

Alex Smith’s MVP Candidacy Gains Steam After Sunday Night’s Vict custom Athletics jersey ory

Behind another stellar offensive performance, the Chiefs stay unbeaten, defeating the Texans 42-34 Sunday night in Houston

By all accounts, Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Alex  custom mlb jersey Smith should be the leading candidate for the NFL’s MVP Award through five games. He’s got the numbers and he’s passing the eye test as well.

Not only is he having the best year of his career for the NFL’s only undefeated team, Smith leads the league in several categories, including completion percentage ( Custom Yankees Jersey 76.6 percent), which if it keeps up, would shatter the all-time NFL record that’s currently held by the Minnesota Vikings’ Sam Bradford (71.6 percent, 2016).

Combined with completing a historic-level of passes is the fact that Smith also leads the league by averaging 8.80 yards per passing attempt, which means he’s throwing the ball down the field and picking up chunks of yards while maintaining his efficiency.

As a whole, the Chiefs’ offense ranks second in the league by averaging 414 total yards per game.

And to go eve Men’s Authentic Customized Oakland Athletics Road Gray MLB Jersey Sale n a step further, according to Pro Football Focus, Smith leads the league with a passer rating of 142.0 on passes that travel at least 20 yards in the air (11 of 19 for 440 yards and three touchdowns).

Those are the numbers—the stats, the box score-scouting analysis that many determine a quarterbacks’ success by wholeheartedly.

But the other side of it is the eye test, the tape, the ability for a quarterback to elevate his level of play when his team needs it the most.

In this area, Smith is also thriving.

During Sunday night’s 42-34 win over the Houston Texans, Smith and the Chiefs’ offense were asked to answer the bell early in the fourth quarter when momentum seemed to be siding back with the Texans.

After a 48-yard touchdown strike from Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson to standout second-year receiver Will Fuller brought the game to within six points early in the fourth quarter, which was after the Chiefs held a 16-point halftime-lead, Smith responded by leading the Chiefs’ offense down the field on a six-play, 70-yard drive that culminated with a 10-yard touchdown pass to De’Anthony Thomas.

“I thought that was a critical point in the game,” Smith said after the game. “It was a six-point game at that point—critical for us to answer, and our guys, there wasn’t a bunch of ‘raw-raw’ stuff on offense. I think guys knew it. Felt good about what we were going out there to do and I thought we stayed in the moment.

 Men’s Authentic Personalized Oakland Athletics Home White Baseball Jersey 

“You know, we’re locked in and we went out and executed, so I thought that was a big answer for sure.”

Smith was 3 of 3 for 43 yards on that drive, which was arguably the biggest sequence of plays in the game.

“I think we have a confidence about us that even when we do get little spills and things don’t go our way, we still can find a way to go back to being us,” Smith said. “We can figure it out. We have the guys to do that. We have the coaches to do that and I think we have the confidence in that.

“As far as the numbers go, I think that I’m sort of flexing the guys around me. We have a bunch of guys that make plays. We all saw that tonight. Sometimes it just goes that way.”

Through five games, Smith is averaging 278 yards passing per game, and he’s tossed 11 touchdowns and hasn’t thrown an interception, which is the best ratio in the league. Last year, Smith’s 11th touchdown pass didn’t come until Week 13.

When asked of his quarterbacks’ success this year, Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid said it’s about the trust in the guys around him, particularly the young receivers he’s worked with for the last couple of years.

“All of these kids he kind of raised,” Reid explained. “He knows about every move they’ve got. They like playing with him and they know every move he’s going to make. It’s kind of a good marriage right there.

“He extended the play and made some plays. His eyes were down the field seeing things, he knows where everyone is at and where they’re going. When I say playing together, that’s kind of the thing there. Just trusting these kids. It’s kind of fun to watch.”

After the game, Smith, as per usual, credited the guys around him for allowing him to make plays, particularly the guys up front. It’s a group that was down two starters with starting center Mitch Morse missing another game because of a foot injury, and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif missing because of a knee injury.

“It was clean,” Smith noted. “Felt like I had a lot of time, and you’re able to look downfield and really, I think, stretch defenses and make some of those throws.”

With Zach Fulton starting at center once again and Cam Erving making his Chiefs’ debut starting at right guard after coming over in a trade with the Cleveland Browns during the preseason, Smith was sacked just one time and hit only three times  Custom Athletics Jersey Sunday night.

“It’s the next man up,” Smith said. “You’ve got to have faith and confidence that the next guy is going to come in and play, and play to a high  new york yankees custom jersey level and not skip a beat.”

“We expect them to do the job,” Reid added. “We’re lucky enough we have enough depth to be able to do that.”

It helps when you have a quarterback playing at the level Smith is right now, which is that of an MVP—both by the stats and by the eye test.

Snap Counts: Ron Pa custom Athletics jersey rker Plays Every Defensive Snap Once Again

 Men’s Authentic Personalized Oakland Athletics Home White Baseball Jersey 

A look at the playtime percentages for the Chiefs against the Texans

Offensive Notes

Tight end Demetrius Harris played a season-high 71 percent (55) of Kansas City’s offensive snaps on Sunday night. The fourth-year tight end hauled in three catches for 21 yards. Harris also played a team-high 26 snaps on special teams.

Offensive tackle Cameron Erving, who was tasked at filling in at right guard on Sunday night, played all 77 offensive snaps.

Running back Kareem Hunt played 55 snaps (71 percent) on offense, rushing for 107 yards on 29 carries. The rookie tailback’s efforts made him one of just two players to ever record 100-plus yards in each of their first five career games, joining Adrian Peterson.

Defensive Notes

Safety Ron Parker played all 64 defe custom mlb jersey nsive snaps, tallying a team-leading eight tackles (5. Women’s Authentic Personalized New York Yankees Home White Baseball Jersey 0 solo). Parker has pl Custom Yankees Jersey ayed every defensive snap this season – the only Chiefs’ player to do so.

Cornerback Marcus Peters played every defensive snap, recording two tackles.

Safety Daniel Sorensen played all but one snap on defense (63), notching six oakland athletics custom jersey  tackles (4.0 solo), half a sack, a quarterback hurry and a pass defensed. Sorensen has missed just three  new york yankees custom jersey snaps on defense since Week 2.

Linebacker Justin Houston recorded 52 defense snaps (81 percent), collecting  Men’s Authentic Customized Oakland Athletics Road Gray MLB Jersey Sale three tackles (2 solo) and 1.5 sacks. 

Charcandrick West’s Night Highlighted by the B custom Athletics jersey est Block of His Career “By Far”

West had two touchdown receptions and a blitz pickup that will be used on highlight films for years

The guy had a lot to smile about after the game.

Kansas City Chiefs’ fourth-year running back Charcandrick West, who is rarely not showing the world how happy he always is, finished Sunday’s 42-34 victory over the Houston T new york yankees custom jersey exans with two catches for 12 yards—both of which resulted in touchdowns, and a blitz pickup to be remembered during an impressive two-minute drill for the Chiefs’ offense at the end of the first half.

Having already grabbed an 8-yard touchdown on a scramble play from quarterback Alex Smith a couple of series earlier, West had, in his words, the best block of his career “by far” during the start of the Chiefs’ drive that began at their own 25-yard line with 1:49 remaining in the first half.

At the time, the Chiefs’ Men’s Authentic Customized Oakland Athletics Road Gray MLB Jersey Sale  lead had just been cut to 16-7 after Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson found receiver DeAndre Hopkins for a 6-yard touchdown.

The Chiefs would have to execute the two-minute offense i Men’s Authentic Personalized Oakland Athletics Home White Baseball Jersey f they were to add to their lead late in the first half. It’s a situation they’ve spent plenty custom mlb jersey  of time practicing this offseason.

On first-and-10, the Texans’ blitzed cornerback Kareem Jackson off the left side, and West, who was lined up to Smith’s right in shotgun, had to come across the formation to pick him up.

“If you know my coach (running backs’ coach Eric Bieniemy), you know that’s the most important thing,” West explained of his pass protection. “I mean, he knows we can all run the ball, but he focuses big on protecting the quarterback. He tells us if you can’t protect the quarterback, you can’t play.

“So, I mean if I want to keep my job, I better pick up some blitzes.”

West picked up the blitz, for sure. He lowered his shoulder and went right after Jackson, who went end-over-end before hitting the ground to an audible gasp from the 70,000 or so in attendance at NRG Stadium in Houston.

“Th Custom Athletics Jersey at’s not an easy thing to do,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid added of that block. “That was huge. I think with all our backs, one of the things we like to have is guys who can catch. We feel like we can teach them the blocking part of it, as long as they’re willing.

“West has picked up on that pretty quick.”

Smith was able to scramble off the right side and pick up seven yards to begin the drive.

After a couple of passes to tight end Travis Kelce that gained 36 yards, and a nice hookup to tight end Demetrius Harris, the Chiefs had gotten to within striking distance quickly.

Then, on first-and-goal from the 4-yard line, West snuck out to the right flat and Smith found him on the outside, allowing West to catch the ba Women’s Authentic Personalized New York Yankees Home White Baseball Jersey ll, look up field, and show some nice footwork to get into the end zone. It was the second touchdown catch of the day for West, who made the most of his two catches on the day.

“He takes a lot of pride in the role that he plays,” Reid added. “He’s been the starter, did that well. Now he’s asked to kind of be the relief pitcher and he’s doing that well. He’s got a great feel for the pass game, and he knows protections well. Smart kid.”

West has become a mentor for rookie Kareem Hunt, who finished the game with his fifth-straight game with at least 100 yards from scrimmage, which makes him just the second player in NFL history to ever accomplish that in the first five games of his career.

The other player to do that? Former Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson in 2007, and his running backs’ that year? Eric Bieniemy.

On the night, Hunt carried the ball 29 times for 107 yards, and caught three passes for nine yards. He still leads the NFL with 609 yards rushing.
 
“The mean the thing about our team and our room is it’s special,” West said after the game. “I feel like there’s not any other running back room, or any room in particular, as close as we are. We really consider each other family. We’re all out there playing together…I feel like that’ oakland athletics custom jersey s why we’re sitting at 5-0 right now.

“We keep that attitude and that mindset, we’ll be OK.”

Seven Storie custom Athletics jersey s of Courage, Perseverance and the Will to Live

The Chiefs will honor seven cancer survivors on Sunday at the Crucial Catch Game, and we’ll tell their stories here

Canc Custom Yankees Jersey er doesn’t discriminate.

It affects people from all different walks of life, from everyday people to professional athletes.

The NFL has worked to tackle breast cancer for nearly a decade, a Men’s Authentic Personalized Oakland Athletics Home White Baseball Jersey nd is bringing that fight to multiple types of cancer this season as it expands its “Crucial Catch” initiative.

The campa Custom Athletics Jersey ign, which has raised more than $18 million since 2009, emphasizes the importance of early detection and risk reduction with the ultimate goal of defeating cancer.

The Kansas City Chiefs will dedicate this Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers to the effort, while honoring seven local survivors of the disease – each of which battled a different type.

The seven survivors were invited to a luncheon at The University of Kansas Health System Training Complex in August, where they watched practice with Chiefs President Mark Donovan and General Manager Brett Veach before meeting a number of players afterwards.

“We were trying to find ways to engage with people and to create more awareness,” Donovan said. “I think being able to do it with people who are actually survivors of these cancers really brings it home. These are Chiefs fans who have been through this, were treated and, in a lot of cases, are in remission. This was a great opportunity to bring them out here and do something for them.”

Following the luncheon, the survivors in attendance – Corina Ramirez (Colon), Samantha Hardisty (breast), Kristina Traughber (cervical), Donald Hall (prostate), Bettye Givens (lung), Ti oakland athletics custom jersey m Grimes (melanoma) and Aiden Burkhart (sarcoma) – were all invited to the Chiefs “Crucial Catch Game” against Pittsburgh on Oct. 15.

This week, we will tell each of the  custom mlb jersey seven survivors’ stories.

We’ll tell a different story every day, starting Tuesday, in either written or visual form before the Chiefs kick off the Crucial Catch Game on Sunday.

Each is a story of courage, perseverance and the will to survive. 

Many of them were once given months to live, battled the odds and now stand as an example of what people can do when we work together in the fight against cancer.

Upon Further Review:  JA Happ Jersey 10 Quick Facts From Sunday Night’s Victory

Here are some quick facts following the Chiefs’ win over Houston on Sunday night

1. The Chiefs rem Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 33 J A Happ Jersey Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey ained undefeated on Sunday, moving to Joe Biagini Jersey  5-0 on t JA Happ Jersey he season

The Kansas City Chiefs are the lone unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, tallying five wins in as many weeks to begin the 2017 season.

In fact, the Chiefs are the only team in the AFC with four or more wins.

Though their perfect record is garnering plenty of deserved attention, the Chiefs have been doing this for a while now.

2. Kansas City has won nine straight games on the road, matching a franchise record

The Chiefs haven’t lost away from Arrowhead Stadium since Week 4 of last season, bringing home a victory in nine straight contests. The streak is more than impressive – it’s historic.

Kansas City is averaging 31.1 points in those games, outscoring the opposition by nearly 10 points per game.  

3. Quarterback Alex Smith had another tremendous performance

Smith was at his best on Sunday night, completing 29 of 37 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns. He posted a 130.2 quarterback rating, making it five straight weeks that he’s put together a passer rating of at least 100.0.

That’s significant.

Even further, Smith is one of just five quarterbacks to do so since 2005, joining Tom Brady (2007, 2015), Peyton Manning (2013), Aaron Rodgers (2011) and Carson Palmer (2005).

It’s been in just about every situation, too. Smith has been consistently impressive across the board.

4. Smith is not only off to the best start of his career, but to one of the best starts ever

As the numbers pile up, Smith has accomplished something through the first five weeks of the season unlike any other passer.

5. Speaking of historic starts, Kareem Hunt continued his 

The rookie tailback ran for 107 yards on Sunday night, recording his fifth-straight game with at least 100 yards from scrimmage.

That’s a big deal.

Amazingly enough, Hunt and Peterson have a common link.

6. Travis Kelce only played the first half on Sunday, but he made it count

Kelce hauled in a team-leading eight passes for 98 yards in the first half on Sunday before leaving the game with a concussion.

The eight grabs were tied for the second-most of Kelce’s career, and just three shy of his career high.

7. Kicker Harrison Butker is making quite the first impression

Butker connected on five field goals on Sunday night, making eight straight successful kicks after missing his first career attempt last week.

That’s a lot of kicks in a player’s first two career games, and as it turns out, Butker is one of just a few to do so.

8. Dustin Colquitt punted himself into the franchise record books

The Chiefs didn’t need Colquitt much on Sunday, punting just twice, but that was enough for the 13-year veteran to take over as the most tenured punter in team history.

9. Tyreek Hill finally broke one

Hill returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, essentially putting the game on ice for Kansas City.

It was Hill’s first return touchdown of 2017 after bringing three back last season (two punts, one kickoff).  

Since Special Teams Coordinator Dave Toub came to Kansas City in 2013, the Chiefs lead the NFL with 10 total kick returns for scores. Conversely, the Chiefs haven’t allowed a single kick return touchdown in that span.

10. The Chiefs’ offensive line came to play

Kansas City entered the night without two starters on the offensive line – center Mitch Morse and guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif – and still managed to hold Houston to just one sack.

Right tackle Mitchell Schwartz was particularly effective.
