Alex Smith says Chiefs showed what offense could do against Colts in playoffs


The Kansas City Chiefs were arguably the hottest team in the first half of the season, starting with season 9-0 before losing to the Denver Broncos. After that point in the season they were 2-5, but still earned a Wild Card berth. It looked liked they were going to cruise to a win in that game against the Indianapolis Colts before letting a 38-10 lead slip away.

Still, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith says that game is a preview of what the Chiefs’ offense is capable of.

“It was our first year in the offense, we didn’t turn the ball over, we were opportunistic in the red zone, but yes we didn’t really have the entire playbook at hand, and that’s to be expected in the first year with a lot of new faces,” Smith said, via Garrett Johnston of the Kansas City Star. “So as the year went on and we got more comfortable and coach Reid got more comfortable with us and his staff, he started to trust us with more and we showed that we could handle it. By the end, I was feeling really good about things.”
