Kansas City Chiefs
Tony Gonzalez left the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009 because he wanted to play for a team that could get him a Super Bowl ring. The Falcons showed that Gonzalez made the right choice coming to Atlanta as they trounced Gonzalez’s former team 40-24 in the 2012 season opener.
Atlanta is looking in solid shape for the season opener, and got some positive news in key starters on both offense and defense planning to suit up against the Chiefs. Kansas City didn’t fare as well in the injury department, and several defensive question marks could open up possibilities for the Falcons’ offensive attack.
Unanswered questions from the preseason will finally begin to take shape when the Falcons head to Arrowhead Stadium Sunday.
Nowadays it’s very rare for any athlete to play his entire career for just one team. When that player returns to face his former team, it’s tough to know how he’ll handle it. Often the reaction depends on how the player left his first team. For Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, he should expect nothing but a warm reception when the Falcons travel to Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday.
