The Kansas City Chiefs fall to 6-3 on the season after a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Alex Smith threw his first interception of the season with five minutes left in the game to seal the loss for the Chiefs. You can blame the Chiefs offense for only scoring 17 points and you can blame the Chiefs defense for their second half collapse. It was a group effort.

So, the Chiefs defense sucks
There was a lot of talk today about the Chiefs 2003 defense. Which one was worse?
The Chiefs forced a punt on their first series. It looked like they were going to play a pretty good game on defense. They gave up 14 first half points. It didn’t seem that bad in the first half.
And then the Cowboys started running the ball in the second half. There was one series in the fourth quarter where the Cowboys scored to take a two score lead on a seven minute drive. It was deflating.
Cowboys shoved that right down the throat of the Chief's defense. 7 passes, 6 runs, shredded Chiefs.— frank boal (@realfrankboal) November 5, 2017
The Chiefs defense is not playing very well right now. It’s SO frustrating to watch because the Chiefs have a great opportunity this season.
Dak Prescott running was a bigger problem than Zeke
Ezekiel Elliott’s final line: 27 carries, 93 yards, 1 TD
Dak Prescott’s final line: 3 rushes, 27 yards, 1 TD
Zeke obviously carried the ball much more than Dak but it was Dak’s runs that were back breakers for the Chiefs, including a touchdown run shortly before the end of the first half. The Chiefs earlier on that drive had the Cowboys pinned inside their own 20 and faced a third and long. Because of a series of errors, the Cowboys drive ended in the end zone with Dak running it in.
The Chiefs did a good job on Zeke overall.
Tyreek Hill had the TD of the year
From the Chiefs own 43-yard line with two seconds left in the first half, Tyreek Hill did this:
