Kansas City Chiefs started their title defense on a shaky note as they fell behind Deshaun Watson-led Houston Texans by 0-7 scoreline in the first quarter of Thursday’s opener. However, head coach Andy Reid helped orchestrate another memorable comeback as the Chiefs ultimately went on to win by a 34-20 margin.
Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill were once again phenomenal last night. But a new star emerged in Missouri in the form of rookie running back, Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The former LSU man made a record-breaking NFL debut and also completed his first career rushing TD in the league.
Despite his impressive displays, the highlight of the game was arguably coach Andy Reid’s unusual ‘face-shield’.

As seen in the picture above, coach Reid definitely faced some issues on opening day at the Arrowhead Stadium in Missouri. The Super Bowl-winning coach was seen struggling with his ‘fogged up’ face shield towards the end of the game. The Chiefs were lucky that their boss could still analyze plays on the field and make some good calls in the fourth quarter.
“That was brutal. I didn’t do very good with that thing. It will be better the next time. I appreciate you asking that, though. It was a bit of a mess, but we’ll get it fixed,” he added courtesy of Reuters.
Here is how Twitter reacted to Reid’s hilarious face-shield tragedy from Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs continue their 2020 NFL campaign with a clash against Los Angeles Chargers away from home. The Chiefs will hope to make it two-wins-two this year. Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be in the thick of things when they play the Chargers next week. Let’s hope coach Reid figures out a way by then to call plays while wearing his ‘foggy’ face shield in LA.
