Chiefs continue to be modest about their 8-0 winning streak
After defeating the Cleveland Browns, Chiefs safety Eric Berry said that they knew the value of each victory and knew how hard it was to get each one.
"We've always been humble," he said. "We're going to keep working because we know how hard these wins are to come by. We don't take these for granted."
The Chiefs are enjoying their second best start in their entire history. In 2003, they went 9-0 at Buffalo. Their success for now can be attributed to their implementation of special teams and impeccable defence, both of which are playing so well that they are on their way to make records this season. This is the second time in seven years that they are 8-0.
The defence showed what they were made of last week when the Browns faced Chiefs. Cleveland thought they had a field goal during the start of second half but the Chiefs defence showed them otherwise. They continued to counter any tries by the Browns and won the match 23-17.
But things can go bad at any time and the Chiefs know this all too well. Last time when they went 9-0, they got defeated at Cincinnati and then started spiralling down, eventually losing to the Colts in divisional rounds. In the NFL, things can change at the most unexpected times.
Even though the Chiefs are enjoying one of the best starts in franchise history, linebacker Justin Houston knew that they have to work all the way to get each win and remain on their steak.
"This team has been through so much the last couple of years, we know we can withstand a lot of things but we also know we have a lot of work to do," he said.
Very win isn’t a dominating one as NFL is competitive and each time wants to win just as badly as the other one. Wide receiver Dexter McCluster agreed, saying that a win is a win.
"We're not trying to be the beauty queens. A win is a win," he said. "We know we're going to have to fight. This is the NFL. Teams are going to be good, going to play well. All we worry about is that win."
