Kansas City Chiefs have had the most awesome offense in the NFL this season, unbeaten record with five wins under their belt and playing at home to a loud, enthusiastic crowd all geared up and ready to enjoy, what should have been, another ‘business as usual’ fun-filled afternoon.
Their opposition, the Pittsburgh Steelers, have had a fairly frustrating start to the season and so, really, they were all kind of, resigned to another ‘business as usual’ loss. Not this time! The Steelers’ superstars decided, no more! We’re going to dominate and dominate they did totally turning the whole game upside down and on its head. Pittsburgh Steelers – 19; Kansas City Chiefs – 13.
This game was strange. It’s like the Chiefs playmakers just didn’t play and the Steelers’ playmakers had a whole lot of fun playing and rising to the occasion.This just wasn’t the same Steelers team that had a rather dismal defeat against the Jacksonville Jaguars a week ago. After that game, it was like the team was in desperate need of a team pep-talk from the team psychologist. Well, whatever happened between last week and this week, best they keep doing it and long may it continue for the Steelers. Perhaps Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin, said it best after the game when he said that his team wasn’t going to spend any time thinking about what went wrong against Jacksonville.
The Chiefs have a bit to think about now. They have to realize that they can’t rest on their laurels and have to stay in the game for the whole season. You don’t win it on the first five.
The Chiefs travel to Oakland for their game against the Oakland Raiders next Thursday. It’s a short week. Can they pull themselves together and regain their winning streak?
The Steelers play Cincinnati Bengals but their advantage is that they’re going into that game on a high. They’re far from being done, yet!
Tom Brady All-Time Wins Leader
Tom Brady of New England Patriots fame has just become more famous after their win against the New York Giants this week. The NFL world celebrated Brady’s historic achievement as he just became the all-time leader for the most career regular-season wins by an NFL quarterback.
With this last win, that makes it his 187th career win for Tom Brady rising above previous holders Payton Manning (186 career wins) and Brett Favre (186 career wins). Factoring in the playoffs, Brady pushes that career victory total up to 212, ahead of Manning with 200 and Favre with 199. As tweeted by New England Patriots
Most regular season wins by a starting QB
Most postseason wins by a starting QB
Most overall wins by a starting QB.
Well done Tom Brady!
