The Chiefs were full of surprises in Week 1 against the Lions. Kansas City’s offense looked out of sorts without Travis Kelce though the defense held its own in Chris Jones’ absence.

Things will look a lot different in Jacksonville this Sunday. We’ll once again take on one of the NFL’s best offenses but Jones is back, Kelce might be and we all have to assume Kadarius Toney’s hands won’t be made of stone this time.

Nonetheless, there are three pivotal questions the Chiefs need to answer if they’re going to beat the Jaguars.

3 Burning Questions Chiefs Must Answer

1. Can ANYONE catch a pass?

The pass-catching group was an unmitigated disaster. Toney had one catch on five targets and Skyy Moore had zero on three targets among several other miscues, resulting in Patrick Mahomes averaging only 5.8 yards per attempt.

I mean, you know it’s bad when Isiah Pacheco leads the team in catches.

Toney had a big game against the Jaguars last year, so I’m optimistic he’ll bounce back. Moore’s struggles worry me but I’m encouraged about Rashee Rice early on.

Of course, Kelce is the elephant in the room. We got good news yesterday but he’s not yet fully cleared for the game. If he can play, I’ll feel much better about our offense.

If he can’t, we need someone to step up quickly. Jacksonville’s offense might be even better than Detroit’s, so we can’t afford the critical mistakes we saw last week.
