The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a surprising 7-0 start this year after Andy Reid came over from Philadelphia and has revived the once proud franchise. The home field crowd has been as much of an advantage as anyone in the NFL, and the defense has used that to terrorize opposing offenses in leading the NFL in sacks.
The offense has done just enough to manage games and pull-out narrow wins against most of the teams they’ve played, and Alex Smith has been the definition of a game manger.
But all of this has occurred without arguably living up to his billing as one of the league’s best receivers, as Dwayne Bowe has been held under 70 yards receiving in every game, and now he has a strained groin muscle that could sideline him Sunday:
RT @adamteicher: Dwayne Bowe (groin) did not practice today, raising questions about his availability for sunday’s game vs. Browns.

If he’s out, Donnie Avery figures to get the bulk of targets at WR.
