Let's figure out what's wrong with the Kansas City Chiefs as they lose to the Denver Broncos for their third consecutive loss.
Their biggest problem right now is ...
The secondary. Three straight weeks allowing at least 300 yards passing. Peyton Manning had 403 after Philip Rivers just missed out on 400 last week.
The drops. Ohh, the drops! This seems to frustrate fans more than anything. Donnie Avery is up there among the culprits on Sunday.
The play calling. Passing the ball on first down at the goal line? Not making more adjustments for the secondary?
The offense. They've been better. But are they still the biggest problem?
Lack of a pass rush. KC was better at pressuring Manning than they have been in recent weeks but the Chiefs aren't getting sacks anywhere near the rate that they were in the first half of the season.
More examples and a poll below.
@ArrowheadPride besides Reid's atrocious playcalling? Hmmm. It must be our complete joke of a defense.— John Potter (@rocketshad) December 2, 2013
@ArrowheadPride Drops. Holy Jesus, the drops.— Nate Propst (@NatePropst) December 2, 2013
@ArrowheadPride Safety play. I don't know when they will learn to stay back. Terrible angles. Scared to tackle.— Robby Hinson (@rrh1382) December 2, 2013
@ArrowheadPride Stiffer pass defense, and receivers who can catch.— Jacob L. Brungardt (@TheMusicMan365) December 2, 2013
