Chiefs Have No Answer for WR Miles Austin in OT Loss to Cowboys

New, comments

Chiefs lose, 26 to 20 in overtime to the Dallas Cowboys.

This isn't meant to be an all-inclusive post game post. Just a few thoughts I had. We'll have much, much more to come. Joel is in the locker room as we speak.

Here's the stat you need to know: Cowboys WR Miles Austin had 250 yards receiving and two TDs, including the 60-yard game winner in overtime.

I am crushed. Speechless. Heart broken.

The Good

  • Dwayne Bowe's TD catch to put the game into overtime.

The Bad

  • Larry Johnson looks slow relative to the rest of the players on the field.
  • Cassel's downfield accuracy has yet to impress me.
  • Poor tackling allowed the Cowboys to set up scores and to even score, as we saw with the Miles Austin TD in the fourth quarter.
  • Give up the big play much?

The Ugly

  • The offensive line. Matt Cassel will not last an entire season getting hit nearly 20 times per game.
  • The running game. Back to the offensive line, there was rarely a hole to run through for the Chiefs running backs.
  • Third downs. We're terrible at them. More on this later.
