2. Skyy Moore
Toney wasn’t the only disaster in the wide receiver group, as Skyy Moore was nowhere to be found all night.
The former second-round pick finished with three targets and 0 yards, including two drops that could have helped the Chiefs seal the game.
This 4th-and-25 pass from Mahomes wouldn’t have been an easy catch, but it’s one Moore should have made with the game on the line. Skyy ran 30 routes, which is encouraging in some aspects, but to not make a single catch is a poor sign.
I believe in Moore’s future with the team. He was hyped up by Brett Veach and the organization all offseason for a reason, after all. That being said, this was as poor of a start as he could have had.
With Travis Kelce injured and taking on a tough Lions team, Moore had a golden opportunity to show he was ready to step up.
Things did not go well. Moore is another player that needs to play well next week, or the Chiefs will quickly realize they have a MASSIVE problem at the wide receiver position. Maybe JuJu and his exploding knee can come back?
