The Kansas City Chiefs had just scored their second touchdown in less than 10 seconds of game time Jordan Scarlett Jersey , an interception that Ron Parker returned untouched for a score, and taken a 38-7 lead over the Cincinnati Bengals with nearly an entire quarter to go.Talk about being able to put a game on cruise control.The Chiefs didn’t exactly sub out their entire first string down the stretch, leaving quarterback Patrick Mahomes and most of the regulars in the game. But they were able to rest easy over the final 10 minutes as they improved to an AFC-best 6-1 and kept their stranglehold on their own division.“Week-in, week-out, we’ve just been preaching playing consistent, playing a full 60 minutes,” Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller said. “We’ve been putting good film out there.”Now it’s up to the rest of the league to break it down.The only team that’s managed to hang with the Chiefs this season was New England, and even Tom Brady and Co. had their hands full at home. If not for a crucial drive that set up Stephen Gostkowski’s winning field goal, the Chiefs might have been able to win that one, too.Making the first stretch of the season even more impressive? The Chiefs have weathered probably the toughest stretch of games they’ll have all season and come out shining like a diamond.They beat the Chargers on the road to open the season, and Los Angeles has lost only once since that defeat.Pittsburgh has two losses, and one of those was to the Chiefs. The Jaguars and Broncos would be at .500 if not for their losses to Kansas City Greedy Williams Jersey , and the Bengals rolled into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night with plenty of optimism and headed home after a 45-10 blitzing.Take out games against the Chiefs, their first seven opponents are a combined 23-17-1.The next nine games include a pair of games against Oakland, which is 1-5, and a home game against Arizona, which is 1-6. Throw in games against struggling Denver at Arrowhead Stadium and trips to Seattle and Cleveland and the Chiefs fully intend to keep hold of the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs.“Of course, you have the ultimate goal in mind,” Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford said, “but whatever we need to do to improve. We know that this is the kind of league where what you put on film or what you struggle with, teams are going to challenge you the next week.“Really, the biggest challenge for us is to keep playing,” he said. “Stay in the process.”The Chiefs do have a couple of marquee games down the stretch, including a showdown with the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City. But their other difficult games — against Baltimore and the Chargers — are at home , where sellout crowds have made life miserable for opposing teams this season.Just ask the Bengals about facing the Chiefs at home.Or anywhere, for that matter.“It was a bad look for the whole team to see that happen. It’s such a big score difference,” Bengals linebacker Preston Brown said. “You never want to go out there and get blown out on a Sunday night, (especially) when it’s been something we’ve been waiting to show the whole league what we can do. And now, to put up a goose egg like that, it’s not a good look.”Brown took heart, though, in the fact that the Chiefs have made lots of defenses look foolish. They have been held under 30 points only once and still beat the Broncos 27-23 that night, and the versatility they have shown with Tyreek Hill, Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce leading the way has helped them put up the kind of numbers that kids pile up playing the “Madden” video game.They’ve set a franchise record with 260 points through the first seven games, and their three 40-point efforts this season are tied for third-best in Chiefs history. Of course, those other Chiefs teams surpassing 40 points three or more times had played an entire season.Mahomes has tossed 22 touchdown passes in his first eight career games Ben Powers Jersey , breaking the NFL record held by Kurt Warner. He also has a record 2,507 yards passing over that span, throwing for at least 300 yards in a franchise-record six consecutive games.No wonder the Chiefs pulled out some audacious touchdown celebrations against the Bengals on Sunday night. Life in the NFL is a lot of fun when you’re cruising to wins almost every week.“It’s a young bunch,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I’m the grandfather. These guys are moving around and enjoying what they are doing, and it’s fun to be a part of and fun to watch.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta Ezekiel Elliott took one giant leap that may have saved Dallas’ season.But it was Elliott’s go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that helped the Cowboys finally hurdle the Super Bowl champs.The Cowboys showed a second-half spark — and cooled the hot seat for coach Jason Garrett a few degrees — in a 27-20 win over the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones burst into the locker room and channeled his inner Ric Flair with a “Wooo!” that perked up the winners. Jones hit the locker room like a politician stumping for votes, shaking hands with anyone within reach.“Now that was a win, I’ll tell you right now,” he said to a small circle of Cowboys.The Cowboys are just 4-5 but the victory steadied a franchise that saw Garrett again under fire and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman call for major organizational changes for a franchise far removed from the Super Bowl heyday.Elliott and Dak Prescott quieted the doubters after a dazzling Sunday that put the champion Eagles’ season on the rocks.“You can imagine the way Jason Garrett, his resolve before the game,” Jones said. “I asked him before the game, ‘You feeling any pressure?’ (Garrett replied) ‘It just makes me want to go out and do more to turn this thing.'”Elliott made highlight reels and kept the Dallas’ NFC East title hopes alive when he extended a play in the first half. The Cowboys tried a fake punt on fourth-and-2 from their 31 and Jeff Heath took a direct snap and ran three yards. A few plays later, Elliott hurdled Tre Sullivan on a 32-yard run to the Eagles 8. Michael Bennett sacked Prescott on third down and Brett Maher kicked a 31-yard field goal for a 6-0 lead.Was it Elliott’s best bound over a defender?“I’ll leave that up to you guys to decide ,” Elliott said.Jones was positive it was Elliott’s finest.“We’ve seen him make that move before,” Jones said. “But I don’t know when I’ve ever seen him totally clear it.”While the Super Bowl champions are reeling, the Cowboys didn’t exactly look a serious threat to the NFC East crown. Prescott had 270 yards passing, tossed for one touchdown and also ran for a score. Elliott also had a TD reception , against an Eagles secondary depleted by injury.The Cowboys will need a win at Atlanta (4-5) next week and then a win Nov. 22 against division-leading Washington to really establish themselves as a playoff contender. It’s a leap of faith larger than anything attempted by Elliott that the Cowboys can wrest their way into the NFC playoff picture.But for a night, it was enough.“We had no choice but to win,” said Elliott, who cupped his hand to his ear as he walked off the field to boos.Garrett, who has yet to lead Dallas to even an NFC title game, knew the magnitude of the rivalry game.“We were in a challenging situation,” he said. “We had to come up here and win a football game.”Both teams felt the pressure even before former President George W. Bush performed the coin toss . The Cowboys and Eagles got into a small pregame scuffle that ended on the sideline before players were ushered back into the tunnel.Dallas took a 10-3 lead into the half before Elliott and Prescott got rolling. Elliott ran in from the 1 to give Dallas a 27-20 lead after Prescott completed passes of 24 yards to Amari Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns on the drive.It was the kind of drive that might have impressed Aikman. Aikman, who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys Trace McSorley Jersey , said this week “there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization .”The Cowboys just shrugged it off as just another controversy that didn’t concern them.“We’re Dallas Cowboys. You guys love to talk about us, you guys love to make stories,” Elliott said. “We’re used to ignoring all the extra stuff and focusing on us.”Eagles fans were spotted transporting a Cowboys coffin into Lincoln Financial Field , perhaps as a symbol of some sort of burial of Dallas’ season.Don’t hold those last playoff rites for the Cowboys just yet.“When you’re feeling low and you see the Grim Reaper,” Jones said, “and then you come in and have your team perform the way these guys did, I promise you, it is a special feeling.”
