Chiefs vs Steelers Preview
Kansas City thumped the Cincinnati Bengals 38-17 in their preseason opener on Saturday.
Fresh off his MVP campaign, quarterback Patrick Mahomes went 4-of-4 for 66 yards on the offense’s opening drive, which resulted in a one-yard touchdown run by Carlos Hyde. Mahomes then gave way to veteran backup Chad Henne, who gave way to undrafted rookie Kyle Shurmur, who gave way to 2018 undrafted free agent Chase Litton.
“I thought there were some good things in the game and I think we came out with plenty of things to work on,” head coach Andy Reid said, according to Chiefs.com. “It was good to get the young guys in and to give them that much time — I just think that’s important right now — while also giving the [first team] at least an opportunity to get their juices going and play a little bit.”
Kansas City dominated the ground game on both sides of the ball, amassing 115 yards on 24 carries while limiting Cincinnati to 21 yards on 12 carries.
Undrafted rookie Josh Caldwell busted a 47-yard touchdown run and carried four times for 59 yards, and sixth-round pick Darwin Thompson added 22 yards on five carries.
In their preseason debut on Friday, the Steelers bested the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-28.
Two days later, wide receivers coach Darryl Drake passed away at age 62. Before joining Pittsburgh, Drake served in the same capacity for the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals.
“We’re all devastated by [Drake’s passing]. I really can’t think of any other appropriate words,” head coach Mike Tomlin said, according to Steelers.com. “Our time and attention in the recent days has been spent in support of the Drake family. Miss Sheila and Darryl’s daughters and extended family — many of us have had an opportunity to spend time with them through this. They’ve been amazing. In making arrangements and adjusting, we’ve tried to be as supportive organizationally to them as we can in what is a very difficult time.
“Professionally the loss is significant, but personally it’s even bigger. Those of us who knew and had personal relationships with Coach Drake all feel that way. We realize we don’t have a lot of answers, and with that being said we brought in some professional grief counselors to assist us through this tough time. It is said that counseling is not for the weak but for the wise, so we seek people who have expertise in helping others deal with such circumstances.”
