The Kansas City Chiefs are now 2-0 in the young NFL season after a 17-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday in the home opener.
Only two weeks into the 2013 season, the Chief's record is equal to last year's entire victory total. They grabbed the lead for good late in the third quarter, and the fans at Arrowhead Stadium sniffed a chance to bask in the Chiefs' second win of the season under new head coach Andy Reid.
"When our fans are going, you can feel that field," said Reid. "It just rumbles a little bit. It's crazy but an awesome feeling."
Reid and the general public only learned in the last week about the Preston Road trophy.
"I think that Preston Road trophy is huge, too, doggoneit. Man alive!" said Reid with tongue in cheek and to chuckles in the interview room.
The trophy will be turned over privately from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to Chiefs Chairman of the Board Clark Hunt. The late Lamar Hunt lived close to Jerry Jones in Dallas, separated by Preston Road.
