Result: Kansas City Chiefs ease to win over Jacksonville Jaguars

Andy Reid's tenure at the Kansas City Chiefs gets off to the perfect start as they hammer the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-2 in their NFL season opener.

The Kansas City Chiefs have started their NFL season with a comfortable 28-2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville got off to a great start on special teams when linebacker JT Thomas blocked Dustin Colquitt's punt and his block rolled out of the endzone resulting in a two-point safety, which gave his side the lead.

However, the Chiefs responded and drove the length of the field with quarterback Alex Smith finding wide receiver Donnie Avery in the flat, and he beat a tackle before running into the endzone to give his side a 7-2 lead, while Ryan Succop kicked the extra point.

Kansas City were rolling and were starting to dominate the Jags defense, and they notched their second touchdown of the game with another strike for Smith when he found Junior Hemmingway in the endzone for a touchdown. Succop added the extra point to make it 14-2.

The Chiefs continued their offensive success as the finished the half 21-2, as running back Jamaal Charles finished a lovely drive with a two-yard touchdown run.

After the break, the teams played a stalemate effort in third quarter as the Chiefs struggled to find their offensive rhythm.

However, it was the defense who all but secured the game for Andy Reid's side as Tambi Hali intercepted a pass from Blaine Gabbert and ran 10 yards in for the score, which was enough to secure the win.
