KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- By late Sunday night, after the Colts had put away the Broncos, the Chiefs became the lone unbeaten team left in the NFL.
But Chiefs coach Andy Reid didn't exactly race home from Arrowhead Stadium to watch what had been the NFL's other unbeaten team, the Broncos, fall to 6-1.
"I only saw a bit of it," Reid said Monday. "By the time we got home, we missed the whole first half. Saw a little bit of the second half. That was about it."
According to Reid, it has never been his style to analyze the standings each week or keep track of what other teams are doing -- other than that week's opponent, of course.
So the fact that the Chiefs are now 7-0 and one game ahead of the Broncos in the AFC West is pretty much totally lost on Reid.
"I am just...whew! (motioning his hand over his head) when it comes to that," Reid said, smiling. "I'm just really all about the next game, one game at a time. I'm not very good at numbers, or stats, or nothing as far as standings go."
