Amendola Heads difference wins against Chargers | shooting pistols

Amendola’s first field goal came for the franchise with 14:58 remaining, a 19-yard attempt tied the game at 17. He fired from 31 yards with 3:20 to play to make the KC lead 27-17 before the Chargers ran down the field and scored, making that goal The last field is a false winner in the game.

Harrison Boetker, a regular kicker, sustained an ankle injury in Kansas City’s season-opening win against Arizona Cardinalsallowing Amendola to sign and call up the coaching squad.

Ammendola’s future prospects for Thursday’s game are difficult to determine, as Butker now has a long week to recover. But, Amendola’s appearance and not missing the kick certainly doesn’t hurt his chances of landing somewhere.

Patrick Mahomes: Distributing the ball around makes it difficult to stop Chiefs | PFT

Mahomes said after his victory over the Chargers that the Chiefs expect to spread the ball a lot this year, keep defenses guessing, and be the type of attack that hardly any defense can prepare for.

“With the size of the tight ends, the continuous backs and receivers we have, it will be everything,” Mahomes said. “There will be a lot of players making passes, it will be football management, it will be football throwing, it will be deep passes. It makes us stop a difficult offense. And when the defense plays the way they did today, we will win a lot of football matches.”

Departure of a wide receiver Trek Hill It was a big off-season story, but in two weeks Mahomes Hill didn’t miss much: Mahomes completed 73 percent of his passes, for 8.0 yards per pass, with seven touchdowns and no interceptions, and the Chiefs were 2-0.

Latest injury update on CB Trent McDuffy Rookie Chiefs | wire heads

It was McDuffie Put on injured reserve last week After a hamstring injury he struggled in the Week 1 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He must remain on the injured reserve list for at least four weeks before being assigned to return to training and then activated by the team.

According to a recent report from NFL Network’s James Palmer, while the chiefs are hoping the rookie will return sooner rather than later, the injury could take nearly six weeks for McDuffie. They are in a wait-and-see mode as to how he will progress in his recovery.

At least we know McDuffie will miss matches against the Colts, Bucs and Raiders, having already missed Thursday’s game with the Chargers. If he’s out for six weeks, he’ll also miss an important week 6 contest with the Bills and lean week 7 with 49ers. After that, the Chiefs will stop their farewell week in the eighth week, and McDuffie is supposed to be back in action for the ninth week against the Titans.

The youth movement of presidents in defensive high school bears immediate fruits | the athlete

Kansas City, Missouri – one of Kansas City headsHis goals just a few months ago were to counterattack their rivals in West Asia. Their opponents got their star veterans on the offensive, so The Chiefs decided they should rebuild their defense with faster, more athletic guys.

Chiefs had hoped for such a strategy, complementing the star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, that would allow them to stay ahead of their competitors. The Los Angeles Chargersperhaps the AFC West’s biggest threat to bring down Chiefs’ six-year rule, entered Arrowhead Stadium in Thursday’s rush hour with experienced newcomers as the defensive end. Khalil Macback corner, JC Jackson and the back Kyle Van NuyTriple acquired to provide better support Justin HerbertTheir stellar star. The Chiefs tackled junior defenders, including the defensive end George Karlavtisback Liu Chanal and Cornerback Jaylene Watson.

The first round – which could end with a hat-trick between the two teams if they fight each other in January during the post-season – resulted in a 27-24 win for the leader, the biggest reason for the result being the encouraging performance of the defense.

Thursday’s game capped an impressive five-day stint for the captains as coach Andy Reed and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnolo, while watching two wins from the sideline, realized the team’s defense was progressing faster than anyone expected. The team’s off-season desire to build a more youthful and dynamic defense translates on the field into improved unity, which could result in the Chiefs (2-0) becoming more balanced. Energy rival.

“We talked about that way in the reception room — I wanted that way,” Watson said. “I never want to see one of our receivers go down, but (I) just want to give them confidence that if they have to play off the field, I’ll come and do my job.”

Why did Watson want this particular path and why were they talking about it in the reception room? For more than 700 days, Watson has been a member of Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They played Charger in Week 4. Tom targeted Brady Watson four times and, in an unfortunate play, noticed a slant in the corners of the Charger.

“A couple of years ago, I played chargers, and they were sitting on my outdoor roads — sitting on my outdoor roads,” Watson said. “In that game I wanted to make a double move – back and up – and it didn’t get done and they ended up taking (a path out) in order to pick six.”

With the opportunity to play the Chargers again, Watson suddenly got a shot at redemption he didn’t intend to miss. Even with a different coaching staff in Los Angeles, he saw the same look and knew the corners would be grim on those outdoor roads. It was the perfect time to unleash the double action.

“This is a play that I’ve thought about a lot over the past two years and I’ve seen the same look – the same kind of defense,” Watson explained. “I just knew how to run it to win and Pat (Mahomes) threw a great ball which was clearly a great result.”

It looked as if the Los Angeles Chargers Cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. It came with a decisive interception during the second half of Thursday night’s game against the team. Kansas City Chiefs. However, the crew in charge eventually called off the initial call.

This objection, which was dropped from Samuel, ended up being costly for the Chargers.

This tweet from Samuel ended up going viral.

Will Justin Herbert’s injury change the AFC scene? | ringer

It was not clear if the large red stain on Justin Herbert’s shirt was paint or blood. Herbert took a hit from Kansas City Chiefs defensive Mike Dana and remained on the field, writhing in pain. Everyone who watches Simba’s inner face from the king lion: “Come on, Justin, you should get up…”

Los Angeles Chargers coach Brandon Staley classifies Herbert’s injury as an abdominal or rib injury, which made sense because it looked like Herbert’s kidneys had burst.

Moments ago, Amazon Prime was kind of lackluster – exclusive Thursday night football The debut between Herbert’s Chargers and Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs also appeared finally to make ends meet. Herbert, the Prince of Chargers who promised, had the ball by seven points with less than six minutes to play. But then Herbert came down, went to the sideline to play, and looked like when he came back. Throw the ball away instead of trying to run a few yards to ease first. It was probably the saddest moment of his entire career.

Chiefs vs. Chargers Instabreakdown: Kansas City scores big

In the first half, the Chiefs’ defensive front created very little pressure on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert – but in the second half, both (and the fans) gained traction. Led by Chris Jones, the unit is already beginning to hit Justin Herbert enough to cause some discomfort. Unfortunately for Herbert, he appears to have had one of those blows.

Interference remains the biggest public problem. Part of this is because it’s early in the season – a time of year when all the teams tend to struggle to get in. But she still has to get it Much Better – or it will eventually cost team matches. The same applies to penalties at the secondary level; Cornbacke Rashad Fenton had several.

The story of the match – and why the defense was ultimately the unit that helped the team win – was once again the retreating third defense. The unit brought together two consecutive weeks of excellent statistical output in late downturns. On Thursday, 5 of the 16 chargers were in third place. They went 4 for 4 in 4th place, but most of those came very late in the game – when it was almost completely out of reach.

Defensive player: Defensive Chris Jones

Jones rose as the defensive unit’s best player to save energy, drive and – most importantly – Casein in the second half. He also had a huge pass deflection.
