Where’s Baldwin?: Second-year WR Jon Baldwin did not start, did not receive a target and hardly played against Atlanta.
Baldwin was the talk of training camp and expected to play a meaningful role in the offense, making his disappearance on Sunday so odd.
“He’s trying to develop a role in the offense,” Crennel said. “He’s working at it, and I think eventually he will have his spot and he will be making plays, but it just didn’t come up today.”
The Chiefs started Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster at receiver. McCluster led the team with 10 targets, and Dwayne Bowe tied with TE Tony Moeaki for second with six targets apiece.
Succop misses crucial kick: K Ryan Succop’s missed kick in the third quarter turned out to be the biggest momentum swing of the game against Atlanta.
“It felt like I put a really good stroke on it,” Succop said. “I didn’t start it far enough left of center where I needed to and it drifted on me. I’ve got to learn from it and come back and make sure I make the next one.”
