Chiefs Week 6 Report Card vs. Steelers

Coming into week 6 unbeaten, the Kansas City Chiefs got a rude awakening in week 6 against the Steelers.  Just about every aspect of the Chiefs game failed as there weren’t very many positives to take away.  The rushing offense, led by Kareem Hunt, managed just 28 yards on 15 carries.  Although the passing offense didn’t look as terrible as the rushing, they still couldn’t get much done against the Steelers defense.  As for the defense, Le’Veon Bell had a field day running the ball, racking up 179 yards.  The Chiefs have plenty of things to fix in practice this week as they prepare on a short week. They get the Raiders on Thursday Night Football.

Failed Fourth Down Doom Chiefs Against Steelers

After three quarters of football, the Chiefs had less than 100 yards of offense against the Steelers.  The Chiefs started the fourth quarter in the redzone thanks to a big play by Kareem Hunt and a penalty on the Pittsburgh defense. After several failed attempts at a first down, the Chiefs were looking at a fourth down situation.

With the Chiefs trailing 12-3, Head Coach Andy Reid decided it was a good moment to gamble and go for it.  The Chiefs tried to get into the endzone with a pass to TE Demetrius Harris.  He had it for a moment, but was unable to control it all the way through the ground.  The Chiefs turned the ball over on downs.  Could a field goal in that situation have made a difference later in the game?  Who knows.

Chiefs vs. Steelers:  10 Observations

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped their first game of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 6.  There were several key observations from the game.  One glaring note was that even though the Chiefs offense was performing so poorly, they were still in the game and had a chance to win at the end.  Also, kicker Harrison Butker and punter Dustin Colquitt kept giving the Chiefs good opportunities.  Butker has been great in the absence of Cairo Santos, and Colquitt is a master at pinning opposing offenses back.  Marcus Peters got his second interception on the season, which is a good sign. The Chiefs will look to improve as they head into a divisional matchup with the Oakland Raiders in week 7.

AFC West Standings Following Week 6

It was a rough week for the majority of the AFC West.  The Kansas City Chiefs dropped from the unbeaten ranks with a loss to the Steelers and now sit at 5-1, still atop the division.  Both the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos both dropped their games to teams they were projected to beat.  The Broncos now sit at 3-2 and the Raiders sit at 2-4.  The Chargers, after beating the Raiders, extended their win streak to 2 and sit tied with the Raiders at 2-4. Additionally, week 7 is a big week for the division as the Chiefs and Raiders matchup as well as the Broncos and Chargers.  Things will definitely be receiving a shakeup after this next week of games.
