The Kansas City Chiefs are not looking too good as of late. Just when it looked as if they would get things back on track, the Chiefs get blown out by Josh Allen and the Bills.
While no one was guaranteeing the Chiefs to win, this was very unexpected. The Bills not only outscored the Chiefs, but they also locked them up on defense.
The Chiefs have been known the last few years for having this dynamic offense, and an average or below-average defense. While the defense part is still true, however, it may be worse now, the offense is struggling badly.
This is the last thing we all expected out of this team. With the weapons the Chiefs have, you’d expect them to score more than 20 points against the Bills.
Chiefs offense big reason for loss to Bills
When the year began, and the Chiefs struggled to score in the first half of week one against the Browns, it should have been an early sign of bad things to come.
Yes, we can give the Bills their flowers. They are an amazing defense, and one of the best in the NFL if not the best. However, this offense is built to outscore anyone, and they just did not get it done.
Let’s forget for a minute the defense allowed the Bills to score 38 points. That is something that can be thrown out of the window now, as it is expected this team’s defense will be putrid.
However, the offense playing this bad is something that absolutely should not happen. Nationally, Patrick Mahomes will get a ton of blame for this loss. When you look at the stat sheet and see two interceptions and a fumble, it’s hard not to have those thoughts.
If you look at the film, and actually know the game, Mahomes is not at the majority of the fault. The offense as a whole should be blamed for this loss. Failure to convert in critical down, and penalties were the story of the game for the Chiefs offense.
Not to mention, the weather was not in their favor either. The Chiefs have to make some changes, like right now. You can expect them to come out firing on all cylinders against Washington next week.
