Each week on "Only the Best," we highlight some of the best plays, performances and moments from the previous Sunday.
Sometimes I'll highlight plays because they are representative of a great performance or a trend like Grimes' pick above. And sometimes I'll just show you a T.Y. Hilton play because T.Y. Hilton is making the leap and deserves to be noticed. After a quiet Week 1, the second-year pro had six catches for 124 yards against Miami.
Let's head to Kansas City, where Alex Smith has given the Chiefs exactly what they expected at quarterback. And maybe a little more. One Chiefs touchdown drive against the Dallas Cowboys was keyed almost entirely on Smith running the ball. (Smith was effective in the pistol formation and running the read option.)
The biggest criticism of Smith is that he can't deliver on third-and-long or go down the field. On the play below, using Coaches Film from Game Rewind, Smith connects on a third-and-9 for 31 yards to receiver Donnie Avery. This play encapsulates Smith well. A free rusher comes loose, and Smith moves up well in the pocket. His throw to Avery is not pretty, it wobbles and barely gets there. But the completion is made, and the Chiefs score a touchdown later in the drive. These are the plays that win games.
