The first half was "basically brutal, we weren't very good," is how Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid described the Chiefs first 30 minutes of the 2016 season. But then in the second half the Chiefs, according to Reid, "settled down." Who are the real Chiefs -- the team we can expect to see going forward? Reid said in the second half "we played like we... like we normally play. A lot of good things happened in the second half."
If the second half Chiefs are the new normal, then watch out NFL. Certain games you'll have to "rely on your character and grit," Reid said, and "bank on those things that you built during training camp." The team did that and more, Reid said, showing confidence and "nobody hung their head." That's how the Chiefs overcame a 21-3 halftime deficit and scored 17 fourth quarter points plus six in OT to beat the Chargers 33-27. They won the second half (plus OT) 30-3. Chiefs fans and Andy Reid sure hope that's how the Chiefs "normally play."
