Thoughts from Andy Reid

Andy Reid, the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs spoke after the game, saying:

“I’m proud of our team, it was a hot one today so the guys had to endure the elements. I thought they did a nice job, our trainers did a nice job making sure our guys were hydrated and ready to go. There were some great individual efforts out there.” [1]

He went on to point out what a team effort it had been, through the assistant coaches and each memeberof the team doing his part:

“There were some great individual efforts out there. S Ron Parker comes in and he’s only been here a couple days and he comes out with all of those tackles. [LB Anthony] Hitchens did the same thing on defense, has all of the tackles. Our special teams did a nice job, [Asst. Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator] Dave Toub does a phenomenal job with that crew and they play hard. I thought [Q]B Patrick [Mahomes] did a nice job with the offense, not only managing it but making plays. [RB] Tyreek [Hill] got things going and did a nice job.” [2]

Kansas City is looking to continue its winning streeak next week as the Chiefs travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers this 16th.
