KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is known for making winning adjustments.

It might not seem like there are many adjustments to make following his team’s 34-20 win Thursday night in the season opener, but when it comes to face shields, Reid says improvements are needed.

As part of the team’s and league’s COVID-19 safety protocols, Reid donned a clear plastic face shield on the sidelines of Thursday’s game against the Texans.

The combination of the humidity at the start of the game and light rain toward the end of the game left Reid’s face shield covered in water.

During a video conference with reporters following the game, Reid promised changes.

“That was brutal - I didn’t do very good with that thing,” Reid told 41 Action News sports reporter Aaron Ladd. “It will be better the next time. We’ll get it fixed.”
