On a handful of occasions Thursday, Eagles fans booed Chiefs defensive players who lay on the ground while having their injuries tended to. Philly fans obviously thought the Chiefs were doing what they could to slow down the Eagles uptempo offense, but cornerback Sean Smith refuted that intimation after the game.
Smith, who was lustily booed in the second half when he sat on the field for several moments due to cramping in his legs, got a good chuckle out of the fans' reaction.
“I knew it was coming everybody thought I was faking, but I had to get an IV ― I've got the proof right here,” Smith said with a laugh, pointing to a bandage on the inside of his left arm.
Smith, however, also credited Philly's frenetic offense for tiring him out.
“It shows how fast-paced that offense is,” Smith said. “It's crazy, you can't really practice it. So when you see it for the first time, you don't really know what to expect.”
