1. Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith is in a groove, having fun on the field

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"Sean Smith spotted Tom Brady in the aftermath of the Chiefs' 41-14 win over the Patriots on Monday, and on a whim, decided to approach the future Hall of Famer and wish him good luck going forward.

Smith was in a good mood, obviously. The Chiefs' No. 1 cornerback was coming off a strong effort in which he'd picked off Brady once, deflected three passes and allowed only a 6-yard completion, but even a confident guy like Smith couldn't have expected what happened next."    READ MORE…

2. NFL says Abdullah should not have been penalized

"Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah followed in the footsteps of many other players on Monday night when he celebrated his interception return for a touchdown by going to his knees in prayer.

Unlike those other players, Abdullah was penalized for going to the ground under the league's rules for unsportsmanlike conduct.

And that all starts with fixating on a physical attribute that has long been more associated with basketball: long arms."    READ MORE…

4. If Chiefs' defense keeps playing like this . . .

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"The defense they unveiled in Monday night's victory is the one the Kansas City Chiefs envisioned they would have all along. It got after the New England Patriots quarterbacks, sacking them three times.

The Chiefs forced three turnovers, intercepting Tom Brady twice and making him lose a fumble. They converted one of those turnovers into a touchdown when safety Husain Abdullah returned an interception 39 yards for a score."    READ MORE…

5. Jamaal Charles, Chiefs deal Patriots milestone blowout

By AP - KCChiefs.com

"It made sense that Andy Reid spoke in baseball metaphors after Kansas City whipped the New England Patriots on Monday night, with the Royals poised to end a long playoff drought just across the parking lot from Arrowhead Stadium.

He may have stretched things a bit when it came to Jamaal Charles, though."    READ MORE…
