Very One sided… Very one sided indeed was the contest between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs. This matchup was a road game for the Chiefs but due to the lack of production on offense, the horrendous passing of Brian Hoyer, accompanied by unrelenting Boos and jeers from the fans, you couldn’t tell.

Kansas City exploded from the start of the game with a 106 yard Kickoff TD by Kniles Davis. The Chief’s defense especially the secondary showed dominance by picking off Hoyer 3 times in the first half. The front 7 of the Chiefs also contributed to a sack and fumble on Hoyer as well. There was never any momentum throughout the first half for both teams. Alex Smith played as Smith usually does throughout his career, playing safe conservative football. There was a moment where Smith looked electric with a 63 yard run but was taken away due to a holding penalty by Chiefs receiver number 12, Wilson. Alex Smith in the second half got into a rhythm on one drive in the 3 quarter effectively moving the chains and throwing a 9 yard TD pass to rookie Chris Conley. Travis Kelce led the way for the Chiefs in receiving, getting 8 receptions for 123 yards. Houston never during any of the game managed to get anything going due mostly the detriment of Hoyer and a Stout K.C defense. It was so bad for Houston that J.J watt had to come in to  play QB for a failed wildcat play call.

        K.C defeated the Texans 30-0 and won its first playoff game since 1994. Also the 30-0 shutout was the 3rd largest postseason shut out on the road in NFL history. There will be a lot of questions concerning the future of the Houston Texans after this embarrassing loss in regards to the quarterback position and maybe even  front office changes as well in the off season. For the Chiefs a victory means staying alive and facing Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next Saturday.
