Overall Grade -- A
Great coaching today by Romeo Crennel and the rest of the staff. After yesterdays tragedy, it is remarkable that Kansas City was able to play today.
Kudos to Chiefs' management and staff for their job this weekend.
On the field, The offense was sharp and the defense held when needed. A valiant effort.
Third Quarter -- A
Best coaching performance of the season on both sides of the ball.
The offense has been sharp and the running game has been excellent.
Defensively, Gary Gibbs has steadily made good adjustments as the game as progressed against Cam Newton and company.
Second Quarter -- A
After the Steve Smith score, the defense looks to have shaped up and the offense continues to be effective.
Excellent decision by Romeo Crennel and company to go for it on forth and goal at the end of the first half to put Kansas City up by three.
First Quarter -- B
Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is doing an excellent job of leaning on the rushing attack so far. It has opened up some nice opportunities for Brady Quinn early on.
Defensively, Gary Gibbs needs to find a way to put the clamps on Cam Newton and the Panthers running game.
