Chiefs In First Place After 21-14 Opening Victory

From Arrowhead Stadium

Take a moment and check out the standings in the AFC West. The first week of games in the 2010 NFL season are in the books and the Chiefs are the only team in their division that found a way to win.

Chiefs 21, Chargers 14.

On a soggy Monday night in a game that dripped into Tuesday morning. With the Raiders and Broncos losing on Sunday, there are the Chiefs standing 1-0, with a one-game lead over the entire division.

This game was a benchmark for the Chiefs and their development and they fulfilled the belief of head coach Todd Haley that they are improved, they are better than they were last season.

There was much that went down and here’s what we have:

    A win is a good win.

    Could not figure out the game plan at the beginning of the game. Thank goodness for the rain.

    Rivers melted with pressure from fans.

    Cassel did not do much to get people off his back. Although that run he made was tough.

    Berry had to go look for his boots after trying to cover Gates, he will learn.

    Jackson got stronger as game progressed. And Charles was Charles. But Weis what were you doing at first?

    That was awesome, I travled a long way to see this victory. Very impressed with the stadium it looks amazing and man was that place rocking. The offense was bit anemic but we got the job done on D and special teams. Despite the fact I now have pneumonia and acute liver disease, that was the most fun I’ve had in the rain in a long time.
