Kansas City Star photojournalists David Eulitt and John Sleezer caught the same unusual moment in Sunday's Chiefs-Eagles game with two distinct images: Safety Daniel Sorensen leaping toward Carson Wentz on a sack attempt. Eulitt captured Sorensen flipped over in midair, Sleezer got a picture of Sorensen flying at Wentz. Listen to how each photographer captured the play.
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is a spectacular talent. He showed it again Sunday against Philadelphia. But he’s also showing no signs of maturing in his behavior despite his own proclamations that he is now a leader for the KC Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid seems fed up and some day it will cost the team, but he’s too talented to bench.
A week ago, it all went right. On Sunday, so much of it went wrong, including constant pressure from a terrific Philadelphia Eagles defensive line. And Alex Smith still made it work for the KC Chiefs. It doesn’t always look like this, but when it does, it’s Smith at his best.
There is an expectation that when the Chiefs play the Chargers on Sunday in Los Angeles that the StubHub Center will turn red as an influx of Kansas City fans fill the stadium. In the Chargers’ home opener, Miami Dolphins fans were out in force.
With his role increased by the injury to Eric Berry, Kansas City Chiefs free safety Eric Murray came up with a huge tackle that might have prevented a Philadelphia Eagles’ touchdown in the Chiefs’ 27-20 victory Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
