To date Chad Henne Jersey , they are 4-3 in the red-on-red look.Let’s take a look back at those seven games:September 15, 2013 vs. Dallas CowboysPhoto by Kyle Rivas/Getty ImagesChiefs 17, Cowboys 16 | BOX SCOREThe Chiefs won their second of nine straight games to begin the season, as they debuted the red-on-red look for the first time. Alex Smith, in his second game as a Chief, threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns to defeat Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe had the go-ahead touchdown catch. As seen above, safety Eric Berry recovered a Cowboys fumble caused by linebacker Tamba Hali during the game.September 29, 2014 vs. New England PatriotsPhoto by Dilip Vishwanat/Getty ImagesChiefs 41, Patriots 14 | BOX SCOREThe Chiefs improved to a 2-2 record in a blowout of the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. Running back Jamaal Charles had three touchdowns for the Chiefs in his return from injury, and the Chiefs picked off Tom Brady twice—including the 39-yard touchdown off an interception by safety Husain Abdullah (as pictured). This was the same night the Arrowhead Stadium crowd set the Guinness record for the loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium.

The Chiefs’ first loss in the red-on-red uniforms dropped them to 7-5 on the season, and the Chiefs would go 2-2 the rest of the way to miss the postseason for the only time in Andy Reid’s duration as Kansas City’s head coach.September 17, 2015 vs. Denver BroncosPhoto by Peter Aiken/Getty ImagesBroncos 31, Chiefs 24 | BOX SCOREThis is not a fun game to remember if you’re a Chiefs fan. The Chiefs and Broncos met at Arrowhead Stadium in a Thursday Night Football thriller, and Kansas City led by a touchdown with less than a minute to go. Peyton Manning and the Broncos tied the game at 24 with less than 40 seconds left, and the Chiefs got the ball back and were seemingly trying to kill clock leading into overtime. Running back Jamaal Charles took the handoff and fumbled the football, and Bradley Roby picked it up and ran it 21 yards back for the game-winning touchdown.December 8, 2016 vs. Oakland RaidersPhoto by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesChiefs 21, Raiders 13 | BOX SCOREThe Tyreek Hill-chant game and Thursday Night Football. With the Chiefs already up 14-3, the Raiders punted to rookie Tyreek Hill. Hit was tackled, but the Raiders were called for a penalty on the play, setting up a re-kick. For the first time, the Arrowhead Stadium fans chanted his name prior to a punt— “Tyreek, Tyreek, Tyreek.” Hill returned the second try for a 78-yard return touchdown, and the Chiefs defense held off the Raiders for their 10th win of the season and control of the AFC West division.

It was the second game in connection with the NFL’s color rush initiative. The Raiders entered the game on a four-game losing streak against the 5-1 Chiefs. It was back and forth most of the game, with the Raiders rallying back from a nine-point deficit in the final quarter. With Oakland on the Kansas City doorstep down six points, the Chiefs took back-to-back defensive holding penalties, extending the game. On the Raiders’ third-straight untimed down, Derek Carr hit Michael Crabtree in the end zone for the win. This is the only road game in which the Chiefs have worn the red-on-red uniforms.December 16, 2017 vs. Los Angeles ChargersPhoto by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesChiefs 30, Chargers 13 | BOX SCOREThe Chiefs wore red-on-red uniforms for their Saturday night game against the Los Angeles Chargers. After the Chargers took a brief three-point lead in the third quarter, the Chiefs never looked back. Alex Smith threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns and Kareem Hunt had 155 rushing yards and two total touchdowns as the Chiefs all but wrapped up the AFC West division at 8-6. This game was another key in Patrick Mahomes getting his Week 17 opportunity (with playoff position locked up), one that led to the Chiefs changing quarterbacks this past offseason.How will the Chiefs do in their red-on-red uniforms Sunday night? Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spoke to the media following Sunday night’s 43-40 loss to the New England Patriots, and again on Monday afternoon.Let’s round up some of what he said:On Sunday night, Reid characterized the game as a learning experience.David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports“It was a heck of a football game,” he said. “I was proud of how the guys battled. We will learn a lot from this game. We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a little bit early and you can’t do that against a good football team. So, we learn from it and we move on and get ourselves better for the following week.”On Monday, Reid expanded on that.“The more you’re together and the more you play together, the better you understand each other, and you become battle-tested,” he explained. “You feel like, ‘Listen... if we just take of a few of the issues there early, we have a chance to be a pretty good team.’ That’s what you learn from something like this. And every week you learn something new. When you come out of this game, that’s what you’re saying. You’re kicking yourself in the tail a little bit for the things that happened early, but on the other hand, you’re going, ‘You know what? We fix a couple of those things, and we’re going to be OK.’”Reid made it clear he doesn’t believe in moral victories.“I’m not a big ‘moral victory’ guy as much as I am a ‘learn from what you’ve got to better yourself’ guy,” he said. “We [need to] just stay on that, and get better the next week. I don’t care who’s in there -- I really don’t care. Get your stuff together and let’s go play, and get ourselves better. You come in here and look at the tape, you bear down on it, and be as honest as you can be. I say this to the coaches — and myself — too. Be as honest as you can be on it — and learn from it — and then let’s get better. Let’s do that collectively.”After digesting the game tape, Reid confirmed Patrick Mahomes’ Sunday night explanations of his two first-half interceptions.Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY SportsOn Sunday night, Mahomes said that when Dont’a Hightower moved into the line of scrimmage on his first interception, Mahomes “kind of lost track of him https://www.thechiefsfanshop.com ,” and didn’t know Hightower had moved into a position where he could make a play on the ball.“Hightower bit on the play fake, and then he was all the way in to the line of scrimmage, and then he settled back out,” Reid said. “Mahomes saw that he had Kelce, so he tried to get it out quick — where he normally would just kind of put it up and over — [but] Hightower [had] filtered back out. So he got Mahomes on that one. It’s a great one for him to learn from.”On the second interception — which, on Sunday night, Mahomes said was an instance of him being greedy — Reid was philosophical.“Listen, Patrick’s always going to try and make plays the best he can, but he can learn from that one, too,” he said. “There’s a time and a place. Maybe you just throw it out of bounds and you kick one. There’s a time and a place for that.“But he came back in similar situations and made some huge plays — like on the one to Kareem, when he was scrambling out of the pocket, and hit Kareem down on the sideline. There’s a time and a place for everything, and with all of his gifts and abilities and great plays, he’ll learn that with time here. But you can’t fault him for trying his best. You know you’re going to get his best.” Reid said that Sunday night showed he can depend on Mahomes to learn and to keep fighting.“He started off a little rough,” Reid said. “But he came back. he battled through it. He kept firing — which is important — and made some plays. He’s a young guy. For him to be able to overcome those things during a game, tells you a little bit about him. But on the other hand, we have to get better at those things. We have to start better. He’s the type that will do that. he knows that every day’s not going to be perfect, but that he has to keep battling. That’s what he does, and I appreciate that with him.”Other notes from Reid’s Sunday and Monday remarksReid said that center Mitch Morse suffered a concussion on Sunday night and would be undergoing the concussion protocol this week.Jordan Devey started in place of injured right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif on Sunday night, and moved to center when Morse left the game in the second quarter.Andrew Wylie took Devey’s place at right guard.Should Morse be unable to play Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, that’s probably where they would remain.Reid wasn’t bothered by the fact that the Patriots had no penalties assessed against them in Sunday night’s game.“I think the officials go back and do the same thing we do,” he said. “They study it, and learn from it. if they miss one or two here or there, they’ll figure it out, and they’ll get it the next time. I kind of put them in with all of us. That’s the human element of the game, and you roll with it.”Reid noted that after the 7:20 mark in the fourth quarter, the Patriots just about doubled their passing yardage for the whole game.We checked, and Reid was right.Until the 42-yard pass to Chris Hogan on third-and-one with 7:20 remaining in the game, the Patriots had passed for only 165 yards.They finished with 327.
