Arrowhead Stadium

Football Stadium
Arrowhead Stadium is an American football stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, United States. It primarily serves as the home venue of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. It is part of the Truman Sports Complex with adjacent Kauffman Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball. Arrowhead Stadium has a seating capacity of 76,416, making it the 27th largest stadium in the United States and the sixth largest NFL stadium. It is also the largest sports facility by capacity in the state of Missouri. A $375 million renovation was completed in 2010.
 
THE COUNTDOWN:
September 18, 2020. Kansas City Missouri. There comes a time when we have to talk about these two teams playing today. They are a mystery. As WEEK-#4 comes to a close, the Long Island Electric Football League's AFC is not quite where the NFC is, but they are very close to contributing to making this an incredible 32-full strength competitive League. Nearly every team in the NFC is a threat. 
 
There are a few exceptions. One of them is the Kansas City Chiefs at (1-2). Running back Priest Holmes has been a significant part of the league these past five 7-Game season format years winning Player of the Year in 2018, everyone is wondering what is going on in Kansas City. Coach Matt "Zoo-York" McQueen said,"There is no sense repeating what has already been written and that is, the Chiefs need to deliver in the next two seasons or they may have to completely rebuild. We have Holmes finally playing to his standard after we unleashed him last week." Kansas City's lost to the Baltimore Ravens, but Holmes had a season high 125 yards rushing with two huge touchdowns, one for 60-yards!
 
This is Kansas City's chance to make a move in a very competitive AFC West. Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill has been the torch-bearer this season, with 324 yards and a touchdown. He is dangerous!  If the Chiefs can get both Holmes and Hill connected in the game, it will be a long day for New England.
 
New England (1-2), is in for a war in the AFC East because the Jets, Bills, and AFC Champion Miami Dolphins are neck-and-neck, so the Patriots need this win desperately or their season could be lost. They are one game away from looking ahead to next season if they lose. That is what makes the seven-game season so fiercely competitive.

Today, Chiefs Coach, Zoo-York, plays rookie New England Coach Levi Vick who is (4-12).  He has made some adjustments with the Patriots line and boy, have they opened up holes! It won't be easy for KC. No joke! The Patriots have to stop All-Pro tight-end Rob Gronkowski, which no one has been able to do so far. In fact, "Gronk" has been the Patriots rock this season, averaging 215 yards per game! He is #6 in the AFC in all-purpose yards 11-643, with one touchdown, but he is the #2 kick-returner in the AFC! This guy can change a game in a minute. He is their play-maker!  The Patriots need him to perform now more than ever, and he is a big-time player in the tough spots. He is vying for Pro-Bowl starter as the kick return specialist.
 
Slawson's Corner Analyst Andrew Slawson said, "Forget it! If you are looking for either of these teams to go to the playoffs, it isn't going to happen. Time for them both to rebuild and get great draft picks. Priest Holmes needed to come out of the gate in game one on fire to compete at the level they need to compete at in this league. It can't be all of the sudden in Week #4 that they can compete. The Chargers at (3-1) figured that out in Week#1 and Kansas City isn't beating the Chargers with the year they are having. Zoo-York can win this game because I do not believe that Levi Vick is a good electric football coach, and I said it before and I will say it again, he is an embarrassment with what he's done to Jacksonville at (0-4). He is not going to win this game in Kansas City!" Wow! With a win today, Kansas City stays in the hunt in the West!

On the opening kick-off Kansas City return man Tyreek Hill was figured out fast by Coach Levi Vick and his Patriots! Hill was stopped at the Chiefs 35 yard-line. Hill did not have his fire on the kick return that opened the game. On Kansas City's first run of the game, Priest Holmes ran for an impressive 19-yard gain. The most controversial coach in the league, Coach Levi Vick, did a great job figuring out the adjustments that he needed to make, and on the next play New England's defense stopped Holmes on two straight runs, for an 18-yard loss by the Patriot push-back, led by lineman John Hannah! On third down, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, aired it out, but with nowhere to throw, Mahomes was forced to throw the football out of bounds, bringing up a fourth down for the Chiefs at the 35-yard line. Kansas City was in big trouble with 8:03 left to go in the half! On fourth down the Chief spell disaster! Kansas City running back, Prince Holmes was flipped around facing the opposite side of the field, hit-up by his own man, and the play stops at the 30-yard line with the Patriots now in control of the ball with 6:32 left and a half.
 
Oh My! How the season has turned around for Levi Vick! When New England took over at the 30-yard line, it didn't take Vick's Patriots long to score. Patriots running back Lawrence Maroney had two runs that amounted to two yards, and the Patriots were forced to pass the ball on third down when Randy Moss outran Derrick Thomas on the left sideline as Moss caught a great pass beating out Thomas for the 30-yard touchdown run to put the Patriots ahead 7-0, with 1:27 left to go in the half!

And on the next kickoff for the Chiefs Tony Gonzalez on his first kick return of his career, ran the ball back 67-yards to the Patriot 33-yard line on one spectacular run! The Patriots offense wouldn't let up on Kansas City. On the Chiefs first down, defensive tackle Matt Light made a beautiful tackle on Priest Holmes, who hasn't rushed for a yard since his first run of 19-yards, forcing a third down play again for Kansas City. The Chiefs have gotten themselves into a mess. With a wide open Tony Gonzalez, Mahomes missed the pass. forcing another fourth down on the Kansas City offense. The pressure was mounting! The Chiefs decided to go for it again on fourth down, with 11:15 left to go in the game!
 
Call it incredible, but Priest Holmes on a fourth down play, ran for 22-yards to pick up an amazing first down for the Chiefs, with 9:51 to go in the game! What a play as Kansas City takes the football all the way down to the Patriots 20-yard line! And after a four yard gain, Holmes scored on a 16-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7, with 7:20 left to go in the game!
 
So far, Kansas City has done a great job keeping the ball out of New England Rob Gronkowski's hands.  Gronk returned his first kick of the day for 55 yards to the Kansas City 45 yard line, with 5:24 remaining in the game! Both the Patriots and the Chiefs are trying to stay alive in their division as Week #4 comes to a close and Week#5 begins to heat up. Right now the way it looks is if the Patriots win they will be tied with the New York Jets (2-2) and the Buffalo Bills(2-2), for second-place in a three-way fight for the AFC East Wild Card race! The Chiefs continue to dominate on the front line as they stop the Patriots for a 15-yard loss.
 
With the clock ticking and seconds to go in the game All-Pro Kevin Faulk came up huge for the Patriots! Faulk caught a great pass from quarterback Tom Brady for a 59-yards first down to the Kansas City Chiefs one-yard line! One play later Maroney lost 25-yards on the play and with time running out the Patriots kicked the game winning field-goal from 26-yards away to win the game 10-7 in a major upset!
 
For rookie coach Levi Vick, he silenced all the critics who doubted him. The resilient coach won his 5th LIEFL game as he starts to figure this league out in a heck of a football game! Matt Zoo-York McQueen threw his water bottle to the other side of the room in frustration, as the Chiefs season is in jeopardy! 
 
New England (2-2), heads back home to play the NFC West Arizona Cardinals (2-2), in a major showdown. The Kansas City Chiefs dropped back in the race for a Wild Card spot as they now have two away games in a row against Jacksonville (0-4) and New Orleans (1-3).
