THE LATEST:  Royals Win Again

Chiefs Open Reid Era With Win

Posted by willp on September 8, 2013

The Kansas City Chiefs made sure they shed the image of their previous season of 2-14 with a 28-2 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Despite opening the game with blocked punt out of the end zone for a safety, the Chiefs responded with two first quarter touchdown passes from Alex Smith to Donnie Avery and Junior Hemingway. Jamaal Charles capped a 77-yard day with a two-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

The Chiefs intercepted former Missouri Tiger Blaine Gabbert twice, including one returned for a touchdown by Tamba Hali. Gabbert didn’t finish the game, as a cut on his throwing hand ended his day early.

The Chiefs will play their home opener on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at noon.
