KC Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spoke to the media on Monday following the Chiefs Sunday loss to the Tennessee Titans, 26-10. Here's what Reid said on what went wrong with the Chiefs in all phases.


1-of-12 on third downs. That's obviously not good enough. Andy Reid and everyone else knows this. If you're bad on third downs, you're probably a bad offense. The Chiefs were a had offense on Sunday.

11 touches for Jamaal. "Not giving 25 the ball more than seven times was negligence on my part," Reid said. Charles had seven rushes and four receptions on the day. We already talked about this. Here's what Reid said: "They primarily went with a cover 3 look or a cover 4 with a cheat safety look," Reid said. "Both are good run stopping coverages. They played gaps and started shooting the gaps. It wasn't anything that should have deterred us off the run game as much as it did." But it did.


Chiefs played well in the first half. I went into the second half thinking this will be a tight game because while the Chiefs offense can't score, their defense would come up with a play.

Not so well in the second half. The Titans ran it quite a bit in the second half. That's what jumped out to Andy Reid. Hmm, why would the Titans run the ball so much in the second half? I am guessing because Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito were out.

No excuses for Cairo Santos missed 48-yard field goal. "Everybody has trust he'll get that worked out," Reid said.

Bad execution on the fake punt. "The fake punt was the right thinking. We were short on one block there. The set up was what we wanted and had seen."
