We already know what players are on thin ice after Monday night's 21-17 loss to the Eagles, but there were good takeaways from the game as well.
The Chiefs' defense put forth a mostly-dominant effort once again, while Isiah Pacheco had his second-highest rushing total of the season.
This'll be a long week before we get to face the Raiders, so let's celebrate three Chiefs who deserve praise for their performances last night.
3 Chiefs Worth Celebrating Despite Crushing Loss to Eagles
1. L'Jarius Sneed/Trent McDuffie - CBs
It's kind of cheating to name both spectacular cornerbacks, but they both deserve tons of praise for their work against an explosive Eagles' aerial attack.
The best part about Jalen Hurts only passing for 150 yards and AJ Brown catching just one pass for eight yards? We saw this coming.
Sneed and McDuffie are the league's best cornerback duo and every piece of evidence each week continues to support that claim. They smothered Tyreek Hill and dominated Brown, while each showcased big play ability with Sneed getting an interception and McDuffie notching a pair of sacks.
Josh Palmer's big day aside, that's an incredible resume of work for Sneed. Extending him this offseason is my personal No. 1 priority for the organization, as his partnership with McDuffie is one of the most pleasant surprises of the season.
For McDuffie's part, what else can you say? He was my Chiefs' MVP through half of the season, with an amazing physicality that jumps off the screen in every game.
McDuffie had four tackles, the two sacks, one deflected pass and one more QB hit. These two are sensational and are the absolutely deserving of celebration.
They're not the only Chiefs' defenders who had great games, as you'll see on the next page.
