Chiefs grades: Where did the offense rank?

KANSAS CITY, MO - SEPTEMBER 11: Travis Kelce /

The Kansas City Chiefs gave us a comeback for the ages on Sunday afternoon, but where did the individual players check in?

Kansas City was all over the proverbial map on Sunday in a wild 33-27 overtime win over the San Diego Chargers. It was a horrendous first three quarters followed by a flurry of incredible play. On Monday, Pro Football Focus detailed its opinion of the players, going through each individual and grading them out against their peers.

While we have already tackled Eric Fisher’s excellent showing, we can look at some of the other rankings and chime in. Keep in mind the scale ranges from 1-100.

Alex Smith,79.2 (11th)

Smith was excellent on Sunday, throwing for 363 yards. He graded out between Blake Bortles and Matt Ryan. Considering how the game started, that is borderline miraculous. If he continues to play near this level, Kansas City’s offense will roll.

Spencer Ware, 77.1 (6th)

Ware has to be higher on this list. With all due respect to Jonathan Stewart, who graded fifth, Ware gained 199 yards and scored a touchdown. he was literally unstoppable almost every time he touched the ball. With Jamaal Charles out, there is a real chance that Ware becomes one of the best backs in football.

Jeremy Maclin, 74.5 (22nd)

This seems about right. Maclin had two catches on the first drive and then disappeared until the fourth quarter, when he caught two huge throws including a 18-yard touchdown on a back-shoulder fade. The Chiefs need Maclin to be big this season, and he came through in the clutch.

Travis Kelce, 79.4 (4th)

Kelce is one of the best tight ends in the league, and he looked the part on Sunday, Kelce had two impact catches in overtime, helping to set up the winning score. The Chiefs were terrific in finding Kelce late, something that helped turn the game around.
