Tomahawks and Touchdowns: Week #5 Recap

The Kansas City Chiefs had another successful week. They beat the Houston Texans on the road on Sunday night 42-34. The win moved their record to 5-0. The Chiefs special teams unit had a big role in the win.

 

Harrison Butker had another big game last week. He went 5/5 on field goal attempts, all of which were 35-yards or longer. Butker is 8/9 in his first two NFL starts. In last weeks game Butker was responsible for 18 of the Chiefs 42 total points. Harrison Butker has been a valuable addition for the Chiefs since he joined the team two weeks ago.

Tyreek Hill also had a strong performance on special teams. He returned a punt 82-yards for a touchdown, which helped secure the victory for the Chiefs. It was his first special teams touchdown of the 2017 season. Last year he had two punt returns and one kick return for a touchdown. The Chiefs decided to reduce his use on special teams this season. So far in 2017 he has only been used on eight punt returns. Tyreek Hill has been a valuable player for the Chiefs on special teams despite his limited play.

 

The Chiefs suffered a key loss at the end of the game. Chris Conley ruptured his Achilles late in the fourth quarter. The loss of Conley will have an impact on the Chiefs offense. Conley has 11 receptions for 175 yards this season. Albert Wilson will likely replace Chris Conley as the #2 receiver in the Chiefs offense.

The Oakland Raiders started the season strong but have loss three straight games and are third in the division with a record of 2-3.

Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions in the game. Last season in week four the Chiefs lost to the Steelers in Pittsburgh 43-14. The teams had a rematch in the divisional round of the playoffs.
