The Kansas City Chiefs travelled to Frankfurt Germany and faced one of their hardest challenges to date the Miami Dolphins. They now end their European Vaction with a 21-14 victory in an unlikely venue in an unlikely way.
In the first meeting of the Chiefs and the Dolphins since the trade that sent Tyreek Hill to Miami and sprung the Chiefs to the SuperBowl title last year they faced off in a nearly 100 year old Soccer Stadium and with two of the most explosive offenses in the last decade played a game that featured the lowest passing yards of the season by both Patrick Mahomes and Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa with both coming under 200 yards.
A Defensive battle with the deciding score coming on a fumble turned into a Touchdown by Chiefs Saftey Bryan Cook after a recovery and handoff from Mike Edwards was probably predicted by no one. The take away is the Chiefs found a way to win when the defense focused on taking away their one premiere weapon Travis Kelce.
Kelce was held to only 3 catches and 14 yards today while being consistently double covered. The rest of the recieving corps did just enough with the help of the Defense to get the win. A Touchdown from Rashee Rice was promising, his 17 yards recieving was not.
The Bye week comes at a great time as the Chiefs need to come up with a plan on offense or this type of game will need to be the norm this year.
In a similar way the Dolphins found out that Hill isn't able to pencil in 125 yards a game either as he ended with only 62 yards against his teammates.
Even in Germany teams adjust and it's time for the Dolphins and the Chiefs to adjust again going to the second half of the season.
