The Kansas City Chiefs played an ugly game and ended up losing to the Houston Texans this Sunday. Of course that means there were plenty of hot takes floating around the internet.

The takes were piping hot yesterday, and I’ll run down some of the best.
For those of you who don’t know, a “hot take” is a large generalization or overreaction based on limited information. Sports are one of the preeminent targets for hot takes, and the NFL especially.
