Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson is loved by his teammates for the little things he does on the field, but on Sunday head coach Andy Reid got to give him credit for the big plays he made in a 28-10 win over the Raiders.
There’s nobody that epitomizes the do your job and don’t worry about the results, don’t worry about any credit or anything else,” than Robinson, Reid said. “He kind of does all the dirty work. Then you know, this today, which was beautiful.”
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes together with Robinson helped the Chiefs own the second quarter as they rattled off 28 unanswered points. Mahomes completed 12-of-17 passing for 178 yards with four touchdowns in the quarter. Robinson contributed the lion’s share of the work, catching four passes for 133 yards and two scores during the period.
Robinson didn’t mind waiting for his opportunity to come. He understands the Chiefs have a plethora of offensive targets, and patience is a virtue.
“We got a lot of great guys in the room, and they’ve been here longer than I have,” Robinson said. “Their number gets called more times than mine does, but today mine got called and I was able to make plays and show the coaches I can make plays too. Hopefully I get a couple of more plays.”
