Kansas City Chiefs Defense Shuts Down Dallas Cowboys

Glenn Kaplan

The Kansas City Chiefs defense is starting to come together after struggling at the start of the season. They shut down a potent Dallas Cowboys offense and Kansas City took down Dallas in the supposed game of the week by a final score of 19-9.

This defense made Dak Prescott look foolish after torching the Atlanta Falcons the week before. Prescott completed 28-of-43 passes for 216 yards and two interceptions.

The defense is starting to come around and they could potentially be in the Super Bowl this year. Patrick Mahomes was not exactly sharp in this football game for the Kansas City Chiefs, He completed 23-of-37 passes for 260 yards and one interception.

Kansas City scored two touchdowns on a Travis Kelce 4-yard rush in the first quarter and a Clyde-Edwards Helaire one-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter.

This team is winning in many different ways. A lot of people were writing them off and into the sunset for the season, but there is a reason why they have a championship pedigree. They have been to the AFC Championship Game for three consecutive seasons and Patrick Mahomes has been in back-to-back Super Bowls, with one MVP award in that Super Bowl and another MVP season.

The defense is playing much better and this is a credit to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. He was under a lot of pressure lately.

Chris Jones recorded 3.5 sacks and Jarran Reed also had 0.5 sacks. Charvarius Ward and L’Jarius Sneed each recorded an interception.

The Kansas City Chiefs are starting to pull away in the AFC West race.

The Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) will be on a bye week next week. They will then face the Denver Broncos (5-5) at home on Sunday, December 5th.

The Dallas Cowboys (7-3) will be home on Thanksgiving Day against the Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) on Thursday afternoon.
