The Kansas City Chiefs reached an all-new low today, falling to the Oakland Raiders 15-0.
It was one of the more pathetic offensive showings in franchise history for the Chiefs. With WR Dwayne Bowe placed on injured reserve, the Raiders appeared to have no fear of the KC passing game.
And with good reason.
Brady Quinn struggled all day. When he wan’t making errant passes, his receivers weren’t getting open. The first half was so bad offensively for KC that they entered the half with only 24 yards to total offense.
Despite the offensive woes, the Chiefs defense put forth a spirited effort. They managed to keep the Raiders from ever reaching the end zone. Still, Oakland managed five field goals.
KC’s offense improved a bit in the second half. They managed to pile up some yards but whenever they got close to scoring, they didn’t.
The Chiefs were shutout in perhaps their most embarrassing performance of the season.
And that is really saying something.
The silver lining here is that the Chiefs are still in the running for the #1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Jacksonville Jaguars also lost so the Chiefs will need to make sure they continue to suck over their last two games to ensure the title of “Worst Team In The NFL” stays in Kansas City.
Don’t worry, Addicts. Only two more games and then we’re likely to get much more excitement in the offseason than we had during the actual season.
Pioli, Crennel and Daboll are almost certainly goners. With a new GM, coach and the #1 pick in the draft, Chiefs Nation will at least have some hope heading into 2013.
