Kansas City Chiefs fans broke the world decibel record during Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders, reaching a mark of 137.5.
The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.
The last time this happened to Big Blue, they won only six games and missed the postseason entirely. Now there seems to be a gloomy feel of history repeating itself.
The Giants have started the season 0-4 for the first time since 1987 after losing the Chiefs on Sunday.
The Kansas City Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last year at 2-14, so after three weeks of the regular season, KC has already passed their win total from last year. The New York Giants were supposed to challenge for the NFC East title this year, but after Sunday’s shutout loss to the Carolina Panthers, New York has dropped to 0-3. Kansas City looks for the momentum to continue, while New York desperately looks for a “W.”
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Super Bowl contenders upgraded their rosters either by trade or free agency. Losing teams added talent in the hopes of making a run at the playoffs. Here are 10 of the most noteworthy moves.
Here’s a look at some sleepers that could pay dividends in your fantasy league.
After years of horrible seasons, poor performances, and multiple coaches, the Chiefs have completely rebuilt their foundation. It is now centered around former first pick and 49er, Alex Smith.
The only thing you need to know about the Jets’ future at quarterback is that they worked out David Garrard last Thursday and would apparently like to sign him in the coming days.
Idzik can’t anger Revis, the Niners or any other potential trade partners. He must handle this delicate trade scenario with savvy and sophistication to get the most out of the deal. A difficult job is at hand, and Idzik must show he is up to it.
Some thought San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith would be great fit for the Jets. So much for that. Two words: Not happening.
The coaching matchup in this game appears even. But the quarterback advantage goes to the 49ers, and the defense advantage also goes to the Niners. San Francisco will join the Steelers as the only six-time winners of the Super Bowl.
After being sidelined with a concussion earlier in the season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith is handling an uncomfortable situation well, saying he is ready to back up Colin Kaepernick in the Super Bowl.
As if they don’t have enough public relations problems, bringing in Vick — with his criminal dog-fighting history and a growing injury background that now includes a major concussion — would send the media scurrying for their Twitter accounts.
