The Kansas City Chiefs had several new faces show up for Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers. They had a new head coach in interim Romeo Crennel. They also had a new quarterback in Kyle Orton at the helm. Yet it was a couple of unexpected names that rose to the top of the receiving ranks in the Chiefs tight end corps that came up big in the 19-14 win over the Green Bay Packers.
"I thought our tight ends showed up," said Orton. "I don’t know if [Coach] expected them to catch that many passes but they were open and did a great job. They made some big plays. [Leonard] Pope made a couple of really big plays for us. Anthony [Becht] on the naked we ran to get the touchdown was a huge play. I think everybody stepped up. It was a total team win. It wasn’t just one guy. It wasn’t just one coach. It was everybody fighting together for a win."
Orton found 10 different receivers on the day and it was nice to see so many Chiefs getting a chance. Having an experienced quarterback who can check down the receivers and find the open man is key when going against such a strong team. It's that facet that Orton brings that the Chiefs haven't had in recent weeks.
