Chiefs' Reid beats Eagles' Pederson in matchup of friends

The Chiefs went to work.

Undrafted running back Chris Thompson for the National Football League team in Washington on Sunday: 3 carries for 77 yards and 2 touchdowns in the first half against the Rams. On the offensive side of the ball, second year quarterback Dak Prescott played well, but didn't do much to stand out.

The Chiefs had a few nervous moments after going up two TDs, with the game coming down to a Hail Mary pass by the Eagles as time expired. Without a more balanced offense, defenses can go after Wentz on virtually every play.

When Reid took over as head coach in Philadelphia in 1999, he brought Pederson over as the starting quarterback to groom rookie Donovan McNabb. The Eagles averaged only 2.4 rushing yards per carry as a team.

The star in the backfield on this day was C.J. Anderson, who rushed for 118 yards and a score and also caught a TD pass for the Broncos, whose only big blemish in their fifth straight 2-0 start was the left leg injury to tackle Garett Bolles, their No. 1 draft pick who got hurt on the opening drive of the second half. But the 18-year veteran looked like a superior QB in his latest visit. They head to Denver next week, and should have some success against the inconsistent Broncos offense.

Wentz believes he has good chemistry with the receivers and that he's always had a really good connection with Jeffery. Moving to 2-0 would establish them as early front runners for the Playoffs this season, where as dropping to 1-1 would make last week's win look like a flash in the pan. There is a lot to look forward to with this kid being the face of the team.

The secondary will be tested all year. Going into Monday, the Giants defensive is going to have an interesting matchup against the Lions.

They're too smart for that.

That proved to be the difference between the teams and was enough to get the Texans season kick-started with their first victory.

The Philadelphia Eagles kicked off their 2017 season with a 30-17 victory over the Washington Redskins.

Carson Wentz threw the ball 46 times on Sunday. The four-man rush got consistent pressure on Alex Smith, netting four sacks and many more hurries. And what about Nelson Agholor? It is by far the most relaxed and open I have ever seen Smith in an interview.

Chiefs center Mitch Morse left the Chiefs' 27-20 win over Philadelphia on Sunday with what coach Andy Reid called a sprained foot after the game. He proclaimed his love for Jesus and said he is naturally going to talk about his faith but is trying to walk "a fine line" by not forcing the issue on other people, CSN Philly reported. Pederson played quarterback for Reid in stops at both Green Bay and Philadelphia, giving credence to the idea that no one knows the nuances of Andy Reid better than Pederson and vice versa. The Chiefs nearly had their hopes of starting 2-0 dashed as the Eagles were able to score a touchdown with eight seconds left in the fourth quarter and immediately recover an onside kick.

For the first three, the tasks get more hard in Week 2. Two, Smith expects this to be his last season in Kansas City.

The Eagles lost, so I suppose you can pin that on whatever you like.

"We're not bad, we just have to not beat ourselves", Graham said. On offense, Kirk Cousins needs to develop some chemistry with Terrell Pryor.

Three plays. Just three plays. When he's in the game, the opposition doesn't have to worry he'll run away.

Former Patriots third-stringer Jacoby Brissett will replace Luck, who is recovering from January surgery on his right shoulder, after Colts backup Scott Tolzien failed so miserably against the Rams.

"All week I was preparing for it", Smith said of the Eagles' defensive line.

"There's nobody you play more than your own defense and you go back and forth with them", Reid said. Luckily for them, Jared Goff is not Carson Wentz.
