I should have done this last week when Alex Smith was Offensive Player of the Week.

For week 2 Chris Jones was Defensive Player of the Week. A 3-4 DE with three sacks is insane. Add 2 FF and an Int. If you want proof that PFF is clueless, they don't list him.

Kareem Hunt wins a big one. He's the first rookie to win Offensive Player of the Month since Mike Anderson in 2000. they only others are Barry Sanders and Edgerin James. 

On a side note, Ryan Succop won for Special Teams.

Not an official award, but recognition. Alex Smith is starting to be seriously considered as the best offensive player in the league.

Note that Benroth is a goat this week.

Not exactly an award, but recognition. 538 is a premier statistics analysis site. They are saying this is the best team since the Super Bowl Team in 1971.

This may be hard to digest, but Smith is having one of the best starts to a season of any quarterback in NFL history. In almost every major offensive category — passing completion rate, passer rating, adjusted yards per attempt and interceptions — Smith ranks among the best. 

He's 4th after P Manning '13, Brady '07, Culpepper '04 and before Rodgers '11 and Warner '00 and Matt Ryan last year. Four MVPs on just this list.

Again, not exactly an award, but recognition. The Chiefs lead the league with three players on the Top-25-Under-25 list--Hill, Hunt and Peters.

If not for DJ, Tamba n Alex we'd probably have the youngest roster in the league.

Take the three oldest off most rosters and you can say the same. Also, Cleveland.

There is a great article at the flagship about how this offense compares to the D ick Vermeil offense built around Trent Green, Priest Holmes/Larry Johnson, Tony Gonzalez and a prime OL.

This is notable

Not a lot going on during the slide. However, against Oakland Alex Smith has new or tied personal bests:

Passing yards - 3507 vs 3502 (2016)

Yards per attempt - 8.0, also in 2012

TD passes - 23, also in 2012

Kareem Hunt blows by Joe Delaney to set a new rookie RB standard with 1197 yards. The team record is 1789 by Larry Johnson.

Hunt also sets a new rookie record with 1641 yards from scrimmage, beating Abner Haynes 1451. He is now top 20 in history, ahead of Adrian Peterson, LT, Hershel Walker and Earl Campbell. His current pace will land him #7, ahead of Marshal Faulk and Clinton Portis. The team record is 2287 by Priest Holmes. Only Priest, Larry Johnson and JC are ahead of Hunt. 

With 9 combined TD he is top five among Chiefs rookies. The team record is 12, co-held by Tyreek Hill last season. 

Alex Smith pads personal bests with 3738 yards and 25 TD. Smith has a chance of taking the team record of 30 TD held by HoF Len Dawson.
