The game wasn’t the prettiest game the Chiefs have played this year, but it definitely wasn’t the worst. It could have been much worse. However, at the same time, there is still a ton to build off of.
Give credit to the Bengals, who played a great game, and had a wonderful game plan, as they did things we haven’t seen other teams do this year. However, the Chiefs beat themselves as well.
Self-inflicted wounds were a big part of this loss. Just think, if Travis Kelce doesn’t fumble, the Chiefs can go down the field and score, and potentially keep the lead.
But, they didn’t, and that’s okay. This loss doesn’t mean the season is over. As a matter of fact, it could only get better from here on out.
“Listen, I think they did a good job,” Reid said. “They competed, and they are going to be better for that. This game right here, they will be better for it. They can learn from this, and it is very important that we do that, as a team and for those young guys.”
When Reid says, “This game right here, they will be better for it,” he actually means that. He didn’t say anything with that much assurance after the loss to the Buffalo Bills, or the Indianapolis Colts for that matter.
The Chiefs are known to bounce back after tough losses. Honestly, the rest of the league should be scared, because if there is a way to be better, they will definitely find it.
Not to mention, the Chiefs schedule is only easier from here on out. I feel sorry for the Denver Broncos, who will get an angry Chiefs team next week.
