Chiefs’ playoff hopes in ruins

Jake Anderson, Sports Editor

The Kansas City Chiefs record says it all: 2-5 simply shows a post season run is far from attainable.

The season was looking up in pre-season when they went 4-0. Beating the Houston Texans in the opening game of the season was a nice touch.

However, it all went downhill during the opening home game against the Denver Broncos. They lost the game at the last possible second on a fumble by Jamaal Charles, running back, and returned it for a go-ahead touchdown with 27 seconds left on the clock.

After this game, they lost four more in a row.

The next game that was thrown away in the fourth quarter was against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 11.

The Chiefs led 17-3 at the half. The offense and defense played an excellent first half for nothing. The Bears scored two touchdowns in the last three minutes of the game to go ahead by one point.

The Chiefs had to rely on Cairo Santos to kick a 66-yard field goal to win the game against the Bears. He missed.

In order to win games, the Chiefs need to air the ball out and find wide receivers and Travis Kelce, tight end.  If the Chiefs want to make it to the postseason, they need to win every single game from here on out, so Chiefs fans shouldn’t get their hopes too high.
