Locked on Chiefs: Denver hand win to Chiefs in primetime

OAKLAND, CA - OCTOBER 19: Alex Smith

The Locked on Chiefs podcast talks about what went wrong for the Kansas City Chiefs even though they won by 10 points.

For the first time in his young career, Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has been held under 100 yards from scrimmage. I expect that it will happen a couple of more times this season and could happen again in Denver. Kansas City played bad throughout the game offensively. They never got their offense going outside plays to tight end Travis Kelce. The offense also turned it over twice albeit not yet with an interception from QB Alex Smith.

Tight end Travis Kelce continues to be the Denver defense’s kryptonite. Without Kelce this score may have looked much differently as Hunt and Hill were held in check most of the night. Kelce again went over 100 yards receiving and caught a touchdown on a defense that prides itself in not giving up yardage or points. The Chiefs have a little under a week to get things figured out heading into a game against the Cowboys. Their offensive performance against the Broncos will end up in a loss against a better team.

The star of the night for the Chiefs outside of Kelce was kicker Harrison Butker. Butker went 5 for 5 and made it look easy including a 51 yard field goal attempt. He hasn’t missed since his first kick in a Chiefs uniform and he usually puts it in the middle third of the goal posts as well. Butker looks like a real weapon for Kansas City with his booming kickoffs and great accuracy. The Chiefs are in great hands with special teams coach Dave Toub and it looks like he may have done it again with his choice for their kicker.
