The Monday night rain fell hard and often at Arrowhead Stadium as the Kansas City Chiefs came up short against the Philadelphia Eagles. The offense wasn’t effective in the second half, wasting a solid performance from the defense that held Jalen Hurts and company for most of the game.
Chiefs cornerback Trent McDuffie was a standout in the game, securing two sacks for the first time in his career, including college. The second-year upstart shared his thoughts on the accomplishment with reporters during the post-game press conference.
“It’s great. I think my last sack was last year against the Broncos. So, (I’m) excited I can get two tonight. But huge credit to coach Spags (Steve Spagnuolo). I mean, his game plan. And his game calling was huge tonight and showed a lot of different looks. I was messing up their offense.” said McDuffie, “So I thought he did a great job and allowed us to get a lot of plays on the ball and sacks at that.”

McDuffie also forced his fifth fumble of the season to go along with his sacks. He reiterated to reporters how unique the night was and his desire to improve on the career night.
“No, sir. Never. I think my first (two) sack game in the NFL.” said McDuffie, “So definitely a first, but hopefully, I can get some more.”
McDuffie has thrived in corner blitzing situations and forcing turnovers in what is becoming a pro bowl caliber season. The Chiefs will hope for a similar performance in their next game this Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.
