We have all seen what happened to the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend by now. It was simply inexcusable, especially for a team of this caliber. The Chiefs are supposed to be Super Bowl contenders, and to do that, the little things matter.
Those little things start with the special teams, which were some of the worst we have seen in the Andy Reid – Dave Toub era. So much so, the Chiefs made some moves on Monday, the day after the loss, to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
On Monday, per Field Yates of ESPN, they terminated the backup kicker’s, Matt Ammendola, practice squad contract. As they should.

Ammendola struggled Sunday, going 1/2 on field goals, and 0/1 on extra points, tallying three total points Sunday.
Ammendola won the ‘world renowned’ kicker contest in practice to win the backup kicker position and has been paying due to Harrison Butker’s ankle injury.
Now, this means that either Butker is about to be healthy, or that they will need to find someone else. Only time will tell for the Chiefs and their next move.
