The Chiefs pulled off an impressive win in Germany over the Dolphins, but the team struggled in the second half and nearly watch a 21-0 lead slip away in the final moments.
While some players deserve praise and adoration for their excellent efforts, others have some work to do before the Chiefs host the Eagles in a Super Bowl rematch in Week 11 on Monday Night Football.
Here are three Chiefs on thin ice entering the bye week despite an AFC-best 7-2 record:
3 Chiefs on Thin Ice Entering Bye Week
1. Matt Nagy - Offensive Coordinator
I have no idea how much blame to put at Nagy's feet for the offensive struggles and I'm on the record as saying I don't believe the issues are a major concern.
That being said, the alarm bells are likely to sound this week as fans search for a scapegoat in the bye week. Shoot, we've seen media outlets badger Nagy since the start of the season and those frustrations are only growing.
The Chiefs are averaging just 23.1 points per game after averaging at least 28.2 points per contest in the five years Eric Bieniemy was Kansas City's offensive coordinator with Patrick Mahomes.
Players are noticeably frustrated and yesterday's goose-egg in the second half won't help matters. The offense is 15th in the NFL in red zone TD efficiency (54.55%), though it did find the end zone in both of its red zone trips against the Dolphins.
Whether Nagy deserves blame or not, all indications are that the organization loves Nagy's contributions and he has a strong relationship with Patrick Mahomes.
If the Chiefs' offense doesn't improve coming out of the bye week though, fans' concern around Nagy will only continue to grow.
Kansas City is likely keeping Nagy long-term, though one offensive player doesn't have that same job security as you'll see on the next page.
