For entirely different reasons Authentic nthony Hitchens Jersey , young quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs' defense had shared most of the public's attention through the first four weeks of the season.Mahomes had been nearly perfect. team that reached the AFC title game a season ago, Kansas City responded with its most complete performance. Mahomes was still humming against the Jaguars' top-ranked defense Sunday, while the KC defense piled up five sacks, forced five turnovers and returned one of Blake Bortles' four interceptions for a touchdown in a 30-14 rout ."The sky is the limit if we play all phases of the game like that," said Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who had six catches for 100 yards. "It's a special thing when you get a whole group of guys to come together for one goal. It's special and it's sure as fun as hell."The Chiefs (5-0) certainly appear to be special right now.They've already scored 175 points to set the franchise record for the five-game mark, while Mahomes threw for 313 yards against Jacksonville to give him a franchise-best 1,513 yards through Week 5.Mahomes has four straight 300-yard passing games, becoming the first QB in NFL history with four in his first six career games. He will try to set the franchise record with five consecutive games when the Chiefs head to New England for a Sunday night showdown this week."When you play a defense like that," Mahomes said, "you're not going to score a ton. The defense stepped up, made a lot of great plays and got us into great field position. I just went out there to maximize the game plan and score when I could."Indeed, it sure seemed as if the Kansas City defense played with a chip on its shoulder after hearing all season how bad it has been, and hearing all week how good the Jaguars would be.The Chiefs held on fourth down inside their 5-yard line early in the second quarter. They held again on fourth down late in the game. They strip-sacked Bortles, picked him off four times and returned one for a touchdown, all despite losing a handful of players to injuries and ejections .Chris Jones, who had the pick-6, was ejected after dropping an elbow on a Jacksonville lineman. Pass rusher Dee Ford followed him to the locker room a few minutes later after getting a second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Outside linebackers Justin Houston (hamstring) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) joined Eric Murray (lower leg) and fellow safety Armani Watts (groin) in getting banged-up.Yet a bunch of unheralded fill-ins responded quite well.Rookie pass rusher Breeland Speaks brought some pressure late in the game. Kpassagnon played well until he went down. And young safety Jordan Lucas Youth Kendall Fuller Jersey , who was traded from Miami just before the start of the season, picked off his first pass after spending most of the season playing special teams."It's a team. We don't point fingers, any of that," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "We know that every week we expect every phase — offense, defense and special teams — to pick it up if the other phase is down. We've been able to do that so far."The result has been another 5-0 start, the Chiefs' third under Reid and second in a row. But while last year's team followed with six losses in a seven-game stretch, there are reasons to believe this year's team will follow a different path through the middle portion of the schedule."We learned a lot from what happened after our 5-0 start last year," Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley said. "We know that we can't be excited about being 5-0. We have to be looking forward to the next game. We have to know that it's a long season and you have to build if you want to win."It helps that this year the Chiefs appear to be a more complete team."Last year we had a great team and we won a lot of games," Mahomes said. "This year we're just trying to learn from last year, the little drought we had, and just try to make it a procession."NFL seasons are long," he said, "and there's going to be ups and downs. But you kind of just grind out every single day and try to get better, and you hope you can limit the downs and maximize the ups." Kansas City Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub took the podium Thursday for his weekly chat with the local Kansas City media. Toub spoke on a number of topics:Kicker concern?Denny Medley-USA TODAY SportsKansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker was a perfect 51 for 51 in career extra-point tries to start his career, but he has missed twice in his last eight tries the past two games.Asked if there was an issue with his kicker on Thursday, Toub denied.“There’s not an issue,” Toub said. “I mean I’m not going to make a big deal. Nobody’s harder on himself than Butker, but really, it’s the whole operation. If you looked at that play (the mixed extra point against Cleveland) in detail http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kareem-hunt-jersey , we had a high snap, so it starts with James (Winchester) and then you got to get the hold down (Dustin Colquitt). Everything was rushed on that play because of the snap, and that’s part of the blame, but Colquitt was still able to get the ball down—we got to be able to kick it and make it. Again, it’s a 33-yard field goal. It’s not a chip shot like it used to be.”Butker has made 14 of 15 field goals this season, as well as 39 of 41 extra points.The point systemMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe Chiefs have a point system when it comes to special teams, and Toub said that a number of Chiefs near the top this season.“It’s real close,” Toub said. “Right now, I think the leader’s like 59 points. We’ve got like five guys within that area, so it’s a good competition and we look at that every Tuesday when we come in and give out the grade sheets and look at the board. We talk about it every day. It’s important to those guys. They compete. It’s not like we’re going to give them anything at the end. It’s a peer pressure thing. It’s a good, competitive atmosphere that we got going.”Who’s the leader with 59? Marcus Kemp.Look for Daniel Sorensen to already be involved on SundayIsaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY SportsIt is looking like safety Daniel Sorensen will be back in the lineup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. And if he indeed does play, he will “probably” be involved in special teams, per Toub.“If he’s active, we’ll get him involved,” Toub said. “He’s not going to be up and be on the sideline. Every person that’s up (on the roster) has to help us in some form or fashion. We’ve talked about it and we’ve worked him in there, so there’s a good chance you’ll see him in there.”
