Andy Reid “wasn’t giddy” about moving to No. 1 seed, wants Chiefs to keep working

The Chiefs have hosted the last three AFC Championship Games and they are now in position to have a chance at making it four straight this season.

Putting Kansas City’s win over the Chargers together with losses by the Patriots and Titans means that the Chiefs are alone at the top of the AFC with a 10-4 record. It’s a sharp turnaround from their 3-4 start and head coach Andy Reid stressed the team’s need to remember what got them to this place as they move forward as the No. 1 team in the conference.

“I’m not going to tell you that you can’t be excited to be in that position, but you better understand what got you in that position,” Reid said, via Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star. “It wasn’t being giddy about it. It was about working. . . . I know how it lines up. I see that. But the important thing is we take care of our business now like we’ve been doing the last few weeks and don’t count on anybody but ourselves to get that done. Therefore you have to go back through the process and the hard work and all those things to get yourself right for the game.”

The Steelers are next up for the Chiefs and then they close the year with trips to Cincinnati and Denver. Winning out will give them a 10-game winning streak and set the AFC up to go through Arrowhead Stadium once again.

  1. They can definitely win out. If they do and end up hosting the championship, regardless of the outcome, it will be an incredible turn around and 4 year run for KC.

  2. It is definitely different this season. Nothing has been given to the Chiefs. They have had to battle and there has been some ugly offense and ugly all around games. I truly believe coaching has been the difference in those close games.

  3. As a Chiefs fan since they started back on the old AFL days I thank God KC was able to hire Andy Reid after he left Philly. I remember the Romeo Crennel days, the Todd Haley days and others like Paul Wiggins. Chiefs had some good HC’s like Marty and Vermiel but they couldn’t get the Chiefs over the hump. Big Red wil be in the HOF first ballot and he was the perfect coach for Mahomes to have coming into the league.
