Falcons Vs. Chiefs 2012: Arrowhead Pride Reacts To Loss

The Atlanta Falcons had their way with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, pasting the Chiefs in a 40-24 Week 1 matchup.

Needless to say, there were lots of talking points from the 16 point loss for Chiefs fans. The folks over at Arrowhead Pride, SB Nation's Chiefs blog, had plenty to say about the loss.

The Chiefs knew they were going to have trouble against Atlanta's receivers, starting with Julio Jones and continuing with Roddy White and then tight end Tony Gonzalez. Falcons coach Mike Smith said once the Chiefs started to take away Jones, they moved onto White and TG.


"[Julio Jones] was targeted early, and I felt like he and Matt were on the same page. Then they try and take him away and we're able to distribute the ball to Roddy for six catches and Tony got his catches."

There's plenty more reaction, insight and analysis around Arrowhead Pride, so be sure to check it out if you're a football fan -- especially if you're a Chiefs fan.
