It’s time to start asking some serious questions about the K.C. Chiefs.
No one is saying it’s time to panic given how long this season will be at 17 regular season games. No one is suggesting major personnel moves or calling for anyone’s job, either. It is, however, reasonable to suggest that some questions should be asked (and answered) when it comes to why things aren’t working out the way they were expected for the Chiefs so far in 2021.
This is a team that is currently 1-2. They could easily be 3-0. Then again, they could just as easily be 0-3.
The Chiefs lost on Sunday to the visiting Los Angeles Chargers in heartbreaking fashion, the second consecutive stomach punch of a loss that set the Chiefs back in the basement of the AFC West. Yes, the basement. That’s where we are at.
The Chiefs committed four turnovers overall yet found themselves in the driver’s seat with minutes to go on a fourth-quarter drive. Only then did Patrick Mahomes throw an errant pass to Alohi Gilman for an interception. Just like that, the Chiefs melted down again when it counted and the Chargers left Arrowhead with a win.
Let’s look back at a thrilling-turned-miserable afternoon of football by breaking out some winners and losers from the day.
