Chiefs looking tough to beat down the stretch

The question is have you bought back in yet with the Chiefs?  I have and it's because of things that teams must do in the playoffs to win and that is run and stop the run.  For the 2nd straight week Kareem Hunt ran for over 100 yards and the Chiefs held their opponent to under 100 yards rushing.  This offense is red hot with Matt Nagy calling the plays on offense and now Andy Reid can just worry about coaching and what his assistants are doing and not doing without worrying about what play he is calling next.  This gives him the flexibility to manage the entire team and it is paying off in a big way. 

The Chargers came into the game ranked 2nd in the NFL in PPG against and the Chiefs put 30 points up on them.  The offense is back in a big way with Alex Smith challenging defenses by throwing down field and that is opening up things for Kareem Hunt.  They are a scary team to play right now with the offense playing the way it is and with the defense starting to get hot at just the right time.  If you are keeping score Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill are both over 1000 yards, Travis Kelce is 9 yards shy of 1000 and Alex Smith is steaming towards 4000 yards passing.  The combination of a runner, tight end, WR and QB that threw over 4000 yards has only been done one time in NFL history.

An example of throwing down the field this 64 yard touchdown to Tyreek Hill from Alex Smith gave the Chiefs their first touchdown of the game:
