Two reasons the KC Chiefs lost to the Baltimore Ravens

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Romeo Crennel runs down what went wrong after the game.

The Kansas City Chiefs did a lot of things right against the Baltimore Ravens, keeping the game close throughout. They ran the ball well and had one of their best defensive performances we'll see all year -- both of those things were strengths coming into this season.

So that's good.

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel talked about two things that did not go so well in Sunday's game -- penalties and turnovers.

"There were a couple of things yesterday that stood out, penalties being one of them," Crennel said on Monday. "When you're playing field position football and you get penalties that hurt your field position, that's not a good thing. That's what we need to clean up with those. Many of those were on special teams.

"Then, the other thing was the turnovers. I don't care how you say it, color it, look at it, but if you turn the ball over in the NFL, you hurt your chances of winning. We did both of those yesterday. We had penalties and we had turnovers, so we have to continue to focus and concentrate on that and then eliminate the penalties and play like we played yesterday with energy, effort and focus which we had for the whole game. If we can do that, I think we might be able to win a game."

You can pretty much rinse and repeat those words on turnovers for every other game the Chiefs have played this season. It's not even worth analysis anymore. Stop turning it over!

I talked about the one penalty that basically cost the Chiefs the game -- and it was a questionable one. Crennel declined comment when asked about that one.
