The way Indianapolis handled the Kansas Antworten

KANSAS CITY Chris Lindstrom Jersey , Mo. �? City Chiefs on Sunday night sent a jolt through the NFL, whether it was dominating the line of scrimmage or shutting down Patrick Mahomes and Co. on defense.The one place the shock didn’t reverberate? The visiting locker room in Arrowhead Stadium.“The one emotion we were not feeling is shock. I can’t even explain it,” Colts coach Frank Reich said after the 19-13 victory. “The way guys were walking down the hallway, it was, ‘We’re not going to be denied. We have to get on track. We’ve got to do it.’ I just knew it was real. I felt it all week.“There was just an air of confidence and belief that we would do what we did today.”Marlon Mack ran for 132 yards and ageless kicker Adam Vinatieri knocked through four field goals as the Colts atoned ever-so-slightly for a January playoff defeat inside the same stadium.Asked what the message was pregame, longtime Chiefs linebacker-turned-Colts defensive end Justin Houston replied: “To come out here and play our game. To leave it out there every snap, to play with your heart, play with your soul. And I think we did that tonight.”The Colts (3-2) allowed points on the Chiefs’ first two possessions before shutting them out until Harrison Butker’s field goal with 1:16 to go. Indianapolis recovered the onside kick without any issue and ran out the clock to celebrate a big win heading into its bye.Mahomes threw for 321 yards and a touchdown, and the Chiefs (4-1) had just 36 yards rushing despite getting top running back Damien Williams back from an injury, all while watching their record streak of 22 straight games scoring at least 26 points come to a crashing conclusion.“Penalties are really what hurt us today,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid, whose team was flagged 11 times for 125 yards. “You get things going, all of a sudden you’re going backward, and it’s tough in this league to do that against a good team and win.”In an air-it-out era of the NFL http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey , the Colts also won by dominating the line of scrimmage.On offense, their big line bruised a Kansas City defensive front that lost Chris Jones and Xavier Williams to injuries. That created big holes for Mack and plenty of time for Jacoby Brissett, who threw for 151 yards while running for the Colts’ only touchdown.On defense, the Colts spent most of the night in the Kansas City backfield, plugging up holes in the running game and relentlessly pressuring the reigning league MVP on passing downs.Mahomes was sacked four times and hit plenty more. At one point in the second half, Cam Erving was pushed so far into Mahomes’ face that the backup left tackle stepped on his quarterback’s ankle, leaving Mahomes to hobble to the sideline when Kansas City was forced to punt.“In this league, the margin of error is tiny,” said Mahomes, who dismissed the seriousness of his injury. “If you’re not executing at a high level, you’re going to lose.'”The Colts and Chiefs mostly played to a first-half stalemate, but the second of Vinatieri’s four field goals made it 13-10 at the break. The real winners were the officials, who finally got to rest the arms that they used to throw flags for the first 30 minutes.The Chiefs’ prolific offense continued to sputter in the second half, and Brissett and the Colts essentially played a game of keep-away throughout the third quarter and into the fourth.“You don’t need a large playbook to convert third-and-1 Kyler Murray Jersey ,” Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark said.The Colts used 8:34 off the clock to move a mere 35 yards and set up Vinatieri’s next field goal. Then, when the Chiefs failed to convert fourth-and-1 at their own 34, Indianapolis got another field goal from Vinatieri with 2:30 to go to make it a two-possession game.“You could just tell they were hungry. They were hungry all week,” Reich said. “I know that’s not uncommon, but there was something different about this week. I could feel it. It was palpable. We just walked in here with a lot of confidence. Last night in our meetings, I can’t even explain what happened in our meetings last night. There was just a feeling amongst the team when we walked into this stadium.”ALMOST INTMahomes nearly threw his first interception of the season in the third quarter, when FB Anthony Sherman batted a pass and LB Bobby Okereke caught it. A review showed the ball bounced off the ground.RING OF HONORThe Chiefs inducted OL Brian Waters into their Hall of Fame during halftime. Waters was a two-time All-Pro for Kansas City before wrapping up his 13-year career with the Patriots and Cowboys.HAPPY RETURNSColts DE Justin Houston celebrated his first trip to Kansas City as a visitor by sacking Mahomes in the first half. The four-time Pro Bowl pick had 78 1/2 sacks during eight seasons with the Chiefs.FLAG DAYChiefs CB Bashaud Breeland had a night to forget. Not only did he struggle in pass coverage, he was flagged four times for 68 yards. That included a 53-yard pass interference call.INJURIESColts: CBs Shak Taylor (chest) and Kenny Moore II (knee) left in the first half, joining inactive safeties Malik Hooker (knee), Glayton Geathers (concussion) and Rolan Milligan (knee) on the Indianapolis sideline. LB Zaire Franklin (hamstring) and DE Kemoko Turay (ankle) left in the second half.Chiefs: WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring), LB Anthony Hitchens (groin) and DT Xavier Williams (ankle) left in the first half. DT Chris Jones (groin) and LG Andrew Wylie (ankle) left in the second half.UP NEXTColts get the week off before traveling to Houston on Oct. 20.Chiefs welcome the Texans to Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday. DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Going into the draft, the Miami Dolphins‘ plan was to win later.Josh Rosen will try to change that.If the Arizona Cardinals’ castoff quarterback shows the Dolphins this year that he can be a franchise QB, they’ll be ahead of schedule in their rebuilding project under first-year coach Brian Flores.And if Rosen is a bust for the second time in as many NFL seasons http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/byron-murphy-jersey , the Dolphins will likely have a lousy 2019 record, which means they’ll be well-positioned to draft their quarterback of the future a year from now.The Dolphins traded a 2019 second-round draft pick and a 2020 fifth-round selection to Arizona for Rosen, a modest investment considering the potential payoff. Rosen was the No. 10 overall pick last year and had a rough rookie season for a team that went 3-13.He’ll likely beat out veteran newcomer Ryan Fitzpatrick for the Dolphins’ starting job this year, in part because they need to find out whether he’s a keeper.Here are things to know about other moves by the Dolphins during the draft:WHO THEY GOTThe Dolphins landed two players likely to start as rookies — Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins in the first round, and versatile Wisconsin offensive lineman Michael Deiter in the third round. Their third-day picks were Wisconsin linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel in the fifth round, Ohio State right tackle Isaiah Prince in the sixth round, and Auburn fullback Chandler Cox and Washington running back Myles Gaskin in the seventh round.“We’ve made some progress,” general manager Chris Grier said. “We feel better, but there’s still work to do. We’re not where we want to be, but we’re happy where we are.”SURPRISE MOVEThe Dolphins weren’t expected to use a high pick on a quarterback, because the crop of prospects in 2020 is more promising.“During his rookie season, obviously there were some ups, there were some downs,” Flores said. “That’s the case for all rookies. But this guy has a lot of arm talent.”HOW THEY DIDThe Dolphins began the draft in the market for an edge rusher Andy Isabella Jersey , and they’re still shopping for one. There’s a significant need at the position because the Dolphins parted with three veteran defensive ends this offseason, including five-time Pro Bowl end Cameron Wake, while adding no marquee free agents.They’re also in the market for help at right tackle and cornerback, and depth is thin at most positions.WHAT’S NEXT?The Dolphins may plug some holes in post-draft free agency, but some long-term solutions will have to wait until 2020. That’s when Grier and Flores are expected to make a big splash, with a favorable salary cap situation next year and 10 picks in the draft, not including two possible compensatory choices.They could have seven picks in the first four rounds.“The plan was to get as many picks as we could going forward, to build this thing right,” Grier said. “We’ll see where it goes.”
