The Chiefs offense looks like it may be back to its normal form. This season the Chiefs offense has struggled a bit, meaning in the first half, they have started slow. This game was a little different.
With the Chiefs scoring 42 points in week four over the Eagles, they have set a new season-high in that department. Not only did the offense finish strong, but they started strong as well, scoring 14 points in both halves.
Even with the huge amount of points scored, Kansas City really only had three guys perform well on offense. That is not taking away anything the others did, but these guys just went off against the Eagles on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs stars on offense shine
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB:
The sophomore running back had one of his best games so far this season. While he has rushed for over 100 yards in a game this season, he also fumbled in that game. That fumble was one that potentially cost the Chiefs a win.
This past Sunday, Kansas City utilized his game to better fit their game plan. With over 100 yards rushing, Clyde Edwards-Helaire was able to ground and pound the Eagles. With his play at the level, it was, the Chiefs were able to form some type of play-action game.
Patrick Mahomes, QB:
Of course, there are very few games where Patrick Mahomes doesn’t play well, however, this game was different. Yes, Mahomes threw an interception, which he has done four times this year, after only six all of last year. Only after that interception, Mahomes took over.
The superstar himself threw for 278 yards, which is nothing to fancy. Number 15 also ran for 26 yards, putting him over 300 total yards. The real stunning thing he did was throw the ball 30 times, and complete 24 of them with five touchdowns.
Tyreek Hill, WR:
The Chiefs number one receiver was probably the best player on the field in this game. Tyreek Hill completely took over against the Eagles, who had no answer for him. In this one, it is almost like the Eagles chose to focus on Travis Kelce, and would just deal with Tyreek Hill.
However, that did not work out well for them. Tyreek Hill finished the game with 186 receiving yards, burning the Philadelphia secondary time and time again, and three times in the end zone.
We can kind of expect this from these guys. However, with the games they had, it is hard not to mention them as a big reason the Chiefs won, and are now back at .500 on the season.
