Turron the Scene 3 and OUT: Week 2 vs. Chiefs

Posted September 18, 2017

Rookie Kareem Hunt followed his record-setting debut by running for 81 yards and 2 scores, the second of them giving Kansas City a 27-13 lead and seemingly putting the game away.

Kelce's touchdown catch with 6:25 left and Hunt's second TD scamper appeared to have put the game away. Roethlisberger finished 23 of 35 for 243 yards and the two scores as the Steelers (2-0) improved to 10-1 in home openers under Mike Tomlin. Carson Wentz extended drives, the pass rush got to a notoriously elusive Alex Smith four times, and the new receiving corps seems to have settled in after just two games. He was sacked six times by Kansas City and took a lot of punishment. Quarterback Carson Wentz led the team in rushing with 55 yards on four scrambles.

The Eagles' secondary was already a cause for concern to begin the season, and it is even more concerning after Sunday's game. "I wasn't pleased with the way we ran the ball through the first two weeks".

The Kansas City Chiefs followed their offensive-minded upset of the New England Patriots by leaning on their stout, opportunistic defense to upend the Philadelphia Eagles. He added 21 yards on four carries and kept drives alive on extend plays outside the pocket. "We've just got to get it fixed". His total yardage and a long of 24 yards were both good enough to lead the Eagles offense, but it wasn't enough for a win. Terrance Mitchell and Phillip Gaines can be vulnerable against top-flight receivers, and the Eagles potentially have three of them.

The Chiefs won 27-20 after a late Wentz touchdown pass and a wild last-second Hail Mary after the Eagles recovered an onside kick.

No, there's no shame in losing at Kansas City - or to arguably the greatest head coach in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Next play, Justin Houston makes his presence felt, blowing up the play in the backfield for a 3-yard loss, forcing a Philly punt.

A ferocious Kansas City defensive stand held Wentz to a sack and two incomplete passes as the Eagles tried to respond.

In Tyreek Hill's case, he caught seven passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. Kansas City is probably feeling pretty good after beating up on the defending Super Bowl champs in Week 1, and they'll look to continue that in a game that pits master - and longtime Birds coach - Andy Reid against his former pupil, Doug Pederson.

However, Elliott missed a 30-yard field goal to end the half.

"It was a lot of fun", Pederson said of his return to Arrowhead.

Eight current Eagles - tight end Brent Celek, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, defensive end Vinny Curry, quarterback Nick Foles, defensive end Brandon Graham, linebacker Mychal Kendricks and tackle Jason Peters - have played for both coaches. The Panthers (2-0) limited the Bills (1-1) to 176 yards and 10 first downs. Beyond that, you won't see Smith extend the play or try to create something with his feet. A replay challenge by the Eagles reversed the call to a touchdown.

Minnesota (1-1) played without quarterback Sam Bradford, who sat out with a left knee injury. He caught the back end of the ball on his 44-yard reception early in the game.
