2. All of the Wide Receivers
You can officially sound the alarms on the wide receivers. This is an unmitigated disaster.
Perhaps the biggest reason Mahomes struggled so much through the air, other than his two poor decisions in the interceptions, was that Kansas City has one of the worst receiving groups in the entire NFL.
Skyy Moore is a ghost, Marquez Valdes-Scantling a one-trick pony, Kadarius Toney a brittle wild card, Rashee Rice an unproven drop machine, etc. Not one receiver has exceeded expectations, except for perhaps Justin Watson, and even he only had one catch for five yards yesterday.
While we can exercise patience with Rice, who has been great when he’s hung onto the ball, the rest of the group is on thin ice. Moore has not taken the step forward we expected, Toney’s health is a question mark and I don’t know if we can expect that much more from MVS.
Something needs to change here and quickly. The Chiefs showed last year they can win the Super Bowl without a good receiver group, but it certainly makes the job that much harder.
Fingers crossed someone steps up against a terrible Vikings secondary next week.
