Chiefs get poor marks in win over Jaguars
By Andrew Jones
Special Teams: A
The only aspect of this game that looked good was special teams. They created a turnover on a punt to give the Chiefs points in the first half. Tyreek Hill impressed me with his return game and his decision making. Cairo Santos was perfect and Dustin Colquitt dropped punts deep in Jags territory.
This is where the Chiefs can separate themselves from other teams in the league. If they have an off day on one side of the ball, there is usually some aspect of their play that keeps them on track. Not every team can say that even if we have a bad day on offense, the special teams got our back. The Chiefs can and that will be big as the pressure grows this season.
The coaching of this game looked poor all around. There were so many stupid penalties and just unfocused moments. The Chiefs were lucky more than they were good and that points right at how the game was managed by the coaches.
While we all found Travis Kelce’s tantrum hilarious it cost the Chiefs a touchdown opportunity and he may even be suspended for a game. Andy Reid did not find it one bit amusing. Nor did he find Peters’ punt into the stands after recovering a questionable fumble amusing at all. The offense was a mess and the defense gave up too many big plays.
The redeeming quality about Andy Reid is that he can right the ship quickly. The Panthers may find themselves in for a long game next week as the Chiefs look to make a statement.
