Locked on Chiefs: Andy Reid’s offense continues to sputter

KANSAS CITY, MO - DECEMBER 25: Quarterback Alex Smith /

Andy Reid quickly shot down questions of whether or not he considered a QB move for the Chiefs on Sunday.

The Chiefs moved to 6-5 on Sunday as did the Buffalo Bills. Kansas City’s defense showed grit and fire throughout the game and had them in a position to win. The Chiefs offense however continues to sputter and looks like it isn’t getting out of it’s funk any time soon. The question the Chiefs have to answer is how to win with the way Smith is playing. The easy answer is change the QB, but at this point it doesn’t look like Reid is willing to do that.

Kansas City has lost the last several games with the offense not doing enough. The defense is starting to make a turn around of it’s play early on and will get stronger next week with the addition of cornerback Darrelle Revis. While that could help shore up issues in the secondary, it won’t help an anemic offense. The Chiefs had five straight 3 and outs in the first half on Sunday. Travis Kelce was only targeted once in that time and didn’t catch Alex Smith’s high pass.

The rest of the AFC West has to be pretty happy with the decisions that Reid is making. At this point the once forgotten Chargers and more than likely the Raiders are going to be one game back in the division after play on Sunday. That thought was unfathomable after the Chiefs started the season 5-0 but that is where we are now. This team has no shortage of questions on offense that need to be answered. The biggest of which is if Reid continues to play Smith will they win any more games?
