Sunday Night Football did not go as planned.

The Chiefs stumbled through an ugly 27-19 loss to the Packers, losing ground in the AFC playoff race while casting doubts on the team's ability to string strong performances together in a potential Super Bowl run.

This was a bad game and there's plenty of blame to go around. Let's look at three Chiefs on thin ice following a brutal loss that dropped the team to 8-4 on the year.

3 Chiefs on Thin Ice Following Disturbing Loss to Packers

1. Skyy Moore - WR

I hate to keep doing this, but perhaps no player outside of Marquez Valdes-Scantling has fallen more short of expectations than the Chiefs' 2022 second-round pick.

Moore finished with one catch for five yards on two targets, but the one he didn't catch might of been the play of the game. It was poetic even, as Patrick Mahomes was charged with an interception due to nonexistent effort from his wide receiver.

We can debate whether the interception was Mahomes' fault for a poor throw or whether Moore stopped running the route, but it's a bad look either way.

Numerous times this season we've seen passes to Moore wind up in the defense's hands. At some point, a guy getting over 60% of the snaps has to make a play for his quarterback.

I'm still a believer in Skyy and the organization clearly is, though 21 catches for 244 yards is not going to cut it this late in the season. Moore needs a big game against the Bills in a big way.

He's not the only Chief that needs to get better, as you'll see ont he next page.
