The Chiefs dropped to 6-6 with their 4th straight loss on Sunday; a game that looked in reach if the defense could have gotten a couple stops.

The Kansas City Chiefs continue their free fall as they drop their fourth straight game and now sit at 6-6 and are in a three way tie for first in their division. Kansas City can not figure out how to play as a team and it’s cost them consistently throughout their losing streak. The defense has looked good the past couple of weeks but couldn’t get a stop against the Jets.

The offense that has looked so out of sync for the past month finally showed signs of life. They got tight end Travis Kelce going early and then went away from him until the fourth quarter. They finally got Tyreek Hill going again on two long touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough. Honestly this game is much more on the defense and special teams as well. You can’t allow an almost 20-play drive and keep your offense on the bench most of the game. Good teams find a way to get off the field on third down and the Chiefs are definitely not in that category.

The Chiefs melted down at the end of the game on defense and special teams. Three penalties near the goal line allowing the Jets to get a TD instead of a FG ended up being the deciding factor. Marcus Peters lost his cool again throwing a flag from the official into the stands. It’s hard to know where Kansas City can go from here. The talent on this team is very good but they aren’t playing well enough to win.
