Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 3 Report Card

The Chiefs came out victorious in week 3 with a 24-10 win over the San Diego Chargers.  Defensive play, led by cornerback Terrance Mitchell and his two interceptions, was a bright spot for the Chiefs.  Kareem Hunt and the rushing attack was on full display Sunday.  Hunt rumbled to another 100+ yard game and added the exclamation point with a 69 yard touchdown run sealing the game.  Of all the positives, there was one glaring issue the Chiefs definitely need to address, the pass protection.  Although Alex Smith played a good game, he was still sacked five times and knocked down several more.  The Chiefs need to have better protection for Smith heading into a week 4 matchup with Redskins.
