The Chiefs are talented. They need to be good.

Of Smith’s measly seven attempts in the first half, he completed only two. The team had a total of 94 offensive yards through 30 minutes of football, and over a third of that (38 yards) came on a single play to Kelce.

If that all sounds horrible, that is because it is. But it does not have to be.

As noted above, the Chiefs have lots of talent. The secondary needs help, as does the offensive line. But overall, K.C. has plenty of playmaking personnel. On Monday, they did not capitalize on what talent they had while Green Bay did.

Eddie Lacy is not the same caliber of running back as Charles. But he was matching his production through the first half. Even on an injured ankle.

When Packers receivers were getting hurt on the first few plays, Ty Montgomery came in a promptly caught a touchdown. When Phillip Gaines went down with an injury, Branch came in and gave up a touchdown on his first play. His coverage did not improve much throughout the night either.

The Packers were missing Jordy Nelson and put on a passing clinic. The Chiefs were missing Sean Smith and got shredded repeatedly.

Next: Hope moving forward...
