To anyone who says that there are sloppy wins, that is true, but in the end, a win is a win. Patrick Mahomes threw an interception in seven straight games. He had all but 11 the past two seasons, but he already has ten this season.
There were some bright spots to take away from this game, with Chiefs running back Derrick Gore, whose first carry came last week against the Titans, he gained 7 yards. In the Giants game, he had 11 carries for 48 yards while averaging 4.4 yards per carrying, as well as one touchdown. There also seemed to be a lot of penalties, which seemed to upset many Chiefs fans like myself.
A Few Bright Spots on the Defense
Whenever I hear Nick Bolton and Willie Gay seemed to find their way. Bolton had eleven tackles, while Gay had nine. Gay also had an interception. If the defense can keep producing as it has, and the offense gets back to their old ways. This Chiefs team can be as scary as ever, although it may not seem that way now.
The Schedule Ahead Is Challenging
When the Packers come to town this Sunday, it will be a whole new week. If there is ever something positive to take away from this is that it is a win. That the Chiefs can rest their heads knowing that they could have performed better than they did on Monday Night Football.
The reality is the Chief’s schedule does not at all get any easier beyond this point as they play the Packers, Raiders, and Cowboys in the next three games. Things may look bleak here, but that is how successful teams can rise and become great. It is a process all of the time, instead of trying to be cute with the ball. They need to start playing on offense and be in the proper position on defense to win games.
Although, it has been a hard pill to swallow this season watching how the Chiefs have played. Still, all in all, it has been a pretty successful year for the most part, minus the losses. If the Chiefs play together, as they should all of the time, things will get a lot easier from them going down the stretch. I believe that if the Chiefs do the little things well, they will turn this season around.
