The Chiefs are in a slump like they have never been before. It is almost like the team is falling apart right before our very own eyes. Of course, it has only been five games, and they could easily flip their season around. However, it is looking like that may be a very difficult task.
The team has all the pieces in the world to succeed, as we have seen that over the last three years. But something is different about this year. The team doesn’t look to be playing together as one. There are a few players who did not do their part against the Bills. In fact, these guys may have hurt the team in some way during the game.
Three Chiefs players who played bad against the Bills
Tyreek Hill, WR:
The elite wide outplayed an atrocious game on Sunday night against Buffalo. Usually, when the Chiefs have one of their offensive superstar weapons locked up, the other goes off. This was just not the case.
Tyreek Hill had so many opportunities to show up in this one. In fact, Hill was targeted 13 times but only hauled in 7 receptions. Even with those seven catches, Hill had a dropped pass that caused a turnover, which also lead to the Bills scoring in great field position. The cheetah himself was just not able to get things going as Hill finished with just 63 yards.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB:
Yes, the young running back left the game hurt. However, before that situation, he was not playing well at all. It is starting to look as if the Chiefs need to focus more on the running game, and that is hard to do when the backs aren’t running well.
Edwards-Helaire only had seven carries, however, he finished with just 13 yards. If you do the math, that’s an average of 1.9 yards per carry, which is awful. The starting running back, should not have 48 fewer yards than the quarterback who only ran one more time.
Daniel Sorenson, S:
The safety that Chiefs fans swear is underrated got lit up on Sunday night. This is something I have been preaching for a while, and that is that Sorenson is not a good safety. Yes, he has made great plays before, but his mistakes usually outweigh the good.
Time after time again the starting safety got burnt deep downfield. The most noticeable was the two times Bills tight end Dawson Knox just ran by him to be wide open deep down the field. It is time to start Juan Thornhill.
