NFL Week 2: Kansas City Chiefs will host the Dallas Cowboys


I would like to dedicate this article to my Uncle and die hard Dallas Cowboys fan Edward. F. Reyes, who passed away on Monday.

The new look Kansas City Chiefs are slowly but surely looking like they will be getting things together. Their victory on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars was pretty much a piece of candy before Dinner, I mean honestly it was the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Kansas City’s real test will come on this Sunday when they host Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. Romo and the Cowboys were able to walk away on Sunday with a victory at home against Eli Manning and the New York Giants.

That victory on Sunday was their first win against the Giants ever since that stadium opened up. After picking off Manning three times just five days ago, this defense looks like it may be getting things together despite giving up four passing touchdowns.

Adding former head coach and defensive line coach/coordinator Rod Marinelli will definitely pay off for this Cowboys defensive line in the long run. The man knows what he is doing and went from having a star like Julius Peppers to being able to coach two beasts in DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer.

With Kansas City, they finally have a head coach and starting quarterback who can lead them to victory. With off-season additions Andy Reid and Alex Smith, the Chiefs should no longer be a push over in the conference.

This Sunday’s match up between the Chiefs and the Cowboys will surely be a defensive battle. Both quarterbacks can lead their teams to victory and have the offensive personnel to light up the scoreboard.

Romo completed 36 of 49 passing attempts for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Smith completed 21 of 34 passing attempts for only 173, two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Right now Kansas City’s main concern is their running game. With Jamaal Charles being held out of practice with a quad strain, he could be questionable for Sunday’s game.

DeMarco Murray picked up 86 yards on 20 carries for the Cowboys on Sunday, while Charles picked up 77 on 16 carries before leaving the game against Jacksonville.

Miles Austin and Jason Witten currently lead the team in receiving with 72 and 70 yards.

Dexter McCluster and Anthony Sherman lead Kansas City with 44 and 43 yards.

    If the CHIEFS play smart turnover free football they very easily could be 2-0
