Chief Fans Get A New Perspective from UK

Kansas City Chiefs 29 – Washington Redskins 20

“OK, that’s good, now look down at your feet and remember the place where you are at.   You’ll need to hit that spot when we come out for pregame,” bellowed the coordinator.  How could I forget?  I looked down at my feet—32-yard marker on the field of Arrowhead. I looked up into the empty stadium, 3 hours before the Monday Night Football game between Kansas City and Washington.  I scanned the faces of my new and old Arrowheads Abroad friends, all scattered about the edges of the United States-shaped flag.  We were all grinning, not believing where we were and what we were going to be doing on national TV.  This was the beginning of the end of a perfect long weekend that seemed too good to be true, even by Hollywood standards.

The Ravens are currently undefeated and sit atop the AFC North but as the saying goes any given Sunday. The Ravens defense is playing lights out but their offense has suffered several injuries. It remains to be seen who takes the win across the pond.

In the meantime, we are here help Jaguars fans feel better heading into that tilt. So, here are three things Jags fans can take away from the game to make them feel better.

Rookie running back Leonard Fournette is the real deal. The former LSU product is fifth in the league in rushing yards at 140 despite having a lackluster game (14/40/1). He is second in the league in rushing attempts only trailing to Denver Broncos CJ Anderson at 45. He has been everything fans could have hoped for and then some. Just watch this grown man run versus the Titans.
