Chiefs fall at home for the first time this season
For the first time this season the Chiefs lose a game at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chiefs (7-3) have ended a five game winning streak with a loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home this past Sunday.
Tampa Bay has played off and on this season, but this win against the Chiefs could be one of their biggest upsets thus far. Nonetheless, give credit to Tampa Bay who found a way to beat the Chiefs at home.
The game was a back and forth battle with very few points. The Chiefs defense struggled through parts of the game which helped Tampa Bay gain valuable ground as they called up on their kicker multiple times.
Alex Smith played a below-par game, but the biggest mistake came from an interception he threw in the end zone after a sensational play that got them great field advantage and within yards of a touchdown.
Tyreek Hill had several big time catches and he continues to prove himself as a very strong asset when the ball is thrown his way.
Winning this game would have helped the team tremendously, because they will be away for the next two weeks against some good teams in the Broncos and Falcons.
The Chiefs need to move on to the next game and keep their spirits high, because there is still much football to be played. The next few games will test the character of this Kansas City team. They have already shown grit, but now they must show a bit more dominance.
