It was Butker’s 19th-consecutive made field goal, which leaves him just three shy of the franchise record.
I think that’s the most accurate word I can find. The Chiefs went out and played generally uninspired football. They looked slow to the ball (though the run defense was better), left receivers open, didn’t finish, blocked poorly, and Alex looked all out of sorts. In short, there was almost zero fun to watch in this game. Which is a real bummer, as the Chiefs have almost always been fun to watch in recent years (except against Pittsburgh, but I digress).
The Kansas City Chiefs need to give serious thought to starting Patrick Mahomes to save their season, according to Mike Florio.
"It felt great being out there," Hali said. "I've been working the whole offseason, so I felt good. I watch our games and usually we take a lead. I was hoping that would happen so I would get a chance to rush a lot. It was fun to be out there."
“We’ve all got a piece of it but it definitely starts with me on this,” Reid added. “We didn’t have a lot of energy. There were a couple of good things in there. Tyreek did a nice job with the catch before half and the middle screen. But we’re going to take a step back, here, and get some rest during this bye week and we’re going to regain our thoughts and evaluate ourselves and go forward.”
As such, in the aftermath of the Chiefs’ 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium, it was hardly surprising when Chiefs center Mitch Morse made it clear that the offensive linemen are putting it on themselves to shake the team from its recent offensive funk going forward.
DeMarcus Lawrence’s sack streak - He had some pressure throughout the game, but his consecutive sack streak of seven games comes to an end.
The Chiefs’ players were fairly upbeat about the success they had stopping the run Sunday, particularly out of their nickel packages. The Chiefs used two inside linebackers –– Derrick Johnson and Kevin Pierre-Louis –– in that subpackage instead of putting a safety at linebacker, and they fared well. It was a positive sign. As for the big passing plays? Yeesh. Guys have to get better and work their technique in the secondary. Guys have to start making plays, and the front seven needs to be more disruptive. Bob Sutton can help them with that by being more creative with his blitzes. It’s simple but it’s not easy.
Team chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said he discussed the issue with Peters within the last month.
“We had a great conversation,” Hunt said. “I’m not going to go into the details there but we had a really good discussion.”
Kansas City Star staff photographer David Eulitt explains how the sunlight entering the windows of AT&T Stadium in Arlington made a dramatic image in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Wide receiver Demarcus Robinson tallied 56 offensive snaps (98 percent) on Sunday, the most of any Chiefs skill position player. He hauled in two catches for 18 yards.
