Typically, Reid had the first extra point attempt in the secondary, but missed the second after the Chiefs were up 20-6 in the second quarter. He also blew up two kickoffs for touchbacks.
“Maybe we should talk about putting in incentives, but it was really a lot of fun. It took me back to my high school days when I was just there and having fun,” Reed joked after the game.
He said he thought he could have kicked a 54-yard field goal before the half was over, but felt his team made the right decision to send Butker back for the kick.

“Yes, I knew that, but what I’m trying to say is that a safety kick is as impressive as it is impressive. To kick a 54-yard field goal,[Butker]is one step away.” How about stepping out…it was unbelievable…leads added.
“I know a lot about kicks, but it was absolutely incredible that he was able to get through it and go through the pain and take the step, but I would have accomplished that too.” So they did the right thing.The decision to send backers out there.”
Reed has had several kicks off in the preseason. He kicked off last season with the Houston Texans and hit a 65-yard field goal in the Chiefs’ preseason.
