Kansas City Chiefs Blow 21 Point Lead To Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs came out and played outstanding in the first half against the shell shocked Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Chiefs' drive charts were certainly a tale of two different halves however.

1st Half Drive Results

  1. Touchdown
  2. Touchdown
  3. Touchdown
  4. Punt
  5. Field Goal
  6. Punt

Not too shabby.  But a different team came out in the 2nd half and posted very different numbers.

2nd Half Drive Results

  1. Punt
  2. Punt
  3. Fumble
  4. Field Goal
  5. Punt

Question: Is the Chiefs tendency to fall apart at the first sign of trouble indicative of a young team or a Herm Edwards coached team?  I'm becoming increasingly under the impression that it's the latter.

UPDATE: In his postgame press conference, Herm Edwards said "Kolby's got a knee.  I think he's done for the season."

UPDATE: Brandon Flowers has a concussion and is questionable for next week at this point.
