Kansas City Chiefs Dominate Chicago Bears: Coach Reid Makes NFL History, Defense Holds Strong, and McDuffie Shines

2023-09-26 13:24:14

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Chicago Bears, 41-10, in dominant fashion on Sunday followingnoon.

Here are some quick notes from the victory.

1. Coach Reid continued to cement his place in NFL history.

Sunday’s victory marked the 271st career victory (including the playoffs) for Head Coach Andy Reid, moving him past Tom Landry for sole possession of fourth place on the all-time wins list. Only Don Shula (347 wins), Bill Belichick (330) and George Halas (324) have more wins in league history than Coach Reid.

2. The Chiefs’ defense didn’t allow a single point until early in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City has now allowed just three offensive touchdowns through three games, which is a feat only the Cleveland Browns (1 touchdown allowed) and Buffalo Bills (2 touchdowns allowed) can top. The Chiefs held Chicago out of the end zone until late in the fourth quarter, ending a stretch of seven consecutive quarters in which Kansas City held opponents without a touchdown.

The Chiefs currently own the No. 4 scoring defense in the NFL.

3. Cornerback Trent McDuffie tallied his second forced fumble of the year.

McDuffie jarred the ball free from Bears’ tailback Khalil Herbert late in the second quarter, marking his second forced fumble of the year. Linebacker Willie Gay pounced on the football, completing the takeaway. The former first-round pick is currently tied with five other players for the league-lead in that category.

McDuffie is off to an outstanding start this season through three games, earning Pro Football Focus’ top coverage grade among all cornerbacks with 75+ coverage snaps this season. The second-year defensive back has yielded an opponent passer rating of just 73.9 when targeted, and he has yet to allow a touchdown.
