HOW CHIEFS ANDY REID GOT OUTCOACHED BY LIONS DAN CAMPBELL!

By Max Harper

The Lions beat the Chiefs in a thrilling NFL season opener on Thursday night.

And there is no way to avoid the elephant in the room, says USA Today’s Jarrett Bell:

Andy Reid was outcoached.

That hasn’t happened much – if ever – during Big Red’s glorious arrangement with Patrick Mahomes the past few years.

But it happened on Thursday night at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium as the Kansas City Chiefs unfurled their Super Bowl 57 championship banner, then got upstaged and embarrassed in a 21-20 defeat before a national TV audience in prime time.

Sure, the gritty Detroit Lions proved worthy of their preseason hype.

And their aggressive coach, Dan Campbell, had his team prepared with the fundamentals to make a statement.

Campbell sprung a big surprise, too, calling for a direct snap that worked while in punt formation deep in his own territory early in the game, which kept alive a 14-play TD drive that sent the signal the Lions indeed came to play against the defending champs.

Yet it wasn’t so much that Campbell outfoxed Reid.
