Earlier this week, BJ Kissel offered up his three turning points in the KC Chiefs loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Today, Romeo Crennel takes a crack at the game's turning points. Actually, this was on Monday night on Chiefs Kingdom on 810 WHB. Crennel zeroes in on the missed field goal and the downhill tumble that followed that. Here's what he said last night:

"I think we can build a lot on [the offense in the first half], really, because there was some question about what we were going to be able to do offensively and the fact that our offense came out and moved the ball down the field consistently and put points on the board consistently in that first half, that was a plus.

"Then in the second half, they adapted a little bit on defense and changed some things up. We ended up with a few negative plays but I think two things hurt us in that second half.

"We had a 10-play drive and then we missed the field goal. Then right after that they scored a touchdown to make it a two score game.

"Then, I think, as I looked at the tape today, I thought our guys started pressing on both sides of the ball, trying to do more than we asked them to do. We tell them to do their job first before they try to help out. It looked like guys were trying to do more than that to try to make a play and get it back to a one score because as long as it was a one score game we stayed with the game plan and they played within themselves so we have to be strong willed and disciplined to be able to do that."

That pretty much sums it up. The missed field goal was one of those plays where you knew right at that moemnt that it would come back to be a problem. And Romeo's used the word "pressing" a few times now in describing the game.

Here's what BJ said about the three turning points on Sunday.
