Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs HOU (20 / 37 / 186 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 2 / 0 rush)

After throwing for the second highest total of his career last week (365 yards), Alex Smith took a step backward against the Houston Texans, totaling only 187 yards on 20-37 passing (53% completion percentage). The Chiefs were without starting offensive guards Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Parker Ehinger, and it showed with Smith getting hit repeatedly, including four sacks. This played a big part in Smith's completion percentage, and despite his deficiency as a downfield passer, he was unable to generate any completions to receivers that gained 20 or more yards. Normally such a stout pass rush would open up running lanes for Smith to exploit, but he failed to make an impact in that department either, gaining only two yards on two rushes. All in all, it was a Sunday to forget for Smith and the entire Chiefs offense.

2016 Week 1 vs SD (34 / 48 / 363 / 2 / 1 pass, 4 / 15 / 1 rush)

Smith threw the ball all over the place today completing 34 of 48 attempts for 363 yards with 2 touchdowns 1 interception and adding on 4 rush for 15 yards and the deciding overtime touchdown. Smith targeted 9 different receivers and connected with 8 of them. Smith's favorite target was Spencer Ware out of the backfield as he targeted the back 8 times, completing 7 for a total of 145 yards. Smith stayed true to form completing short to intermediate passes to move the ball up and down the field. Touchdown strikes to Maclin and Tyreek Hill propelled the furious second half comeback. Smith's lone blemish came in the fourth quarter when a pass across the middle to Jeremy Maclin was ripped away by Jason Verrett after it appeared Maclin had caught the ball. Interestingly enough Verrett was the same player to end Smith's consecutive pass attempts without an interception streak last season. Smith took this game over in the second half and is a big reason why the Chiefs came back to win.
