NFL Week 3 Ratings: Chiefs get ‘D’ after upset loss to Colts, Cowboys get ‘B+’ after Monday win over Giants

It’s not often you see the Kansas City Chiefs completely implode, but that’s exactly what happened Sunday in the team’s shocking 20-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. There was an offensive implosion, a defensive implosion, and even a special teams implosion that might have been the worst of them all.

Offensively, the Colts defense appeared to frustrate Patrick Mahomes, who threw for just 84 yards in the first half. As Mahomes headed to the locker room at half-time, his frustrations seemed to boil over. The Chiefs quarterback got into an argument with offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who decided to let time run out at the end of the half instead of trying to get into the field even though the Chiefs only needed about 25 yards to have a one-kick shot.

Despite the tough day on offense, the Chiefs still had a chance to push this game into overtime, but those chances vanished when Mahomes threw an interception on Kansas City’s final offensive play.

The only thing uglier than Kansas City’s offensive play in this game was their special teams play. In what can only be described as a disaster, the special teams unit essentially cost Kansas City the game. The awful special teams game began in the first quarter when Skyler Moore missed a punt that gave the Colts possession at the Kansas City 4-yard line.

The Colts scored a touchdown three plays after the punt to take a 7-0 lead. As if that weren’t enough, kicker Matt Ammendola missed both an extra run AND a field goal, which was obviously costly in a game where the Chiefs only lost by three runs. The missed field goal came from just 34 yards.

The Chiefs’ placement team was also involved in one of the more bizarre calls of the day. With Kansas City facing a fourth-and-11, the Chiefs lined up for a 42-yard field goal, but Ammendola could never attempt the kick because Andy Reid CALLED FOR A FALSE and things didn’t pan out. not finished well.

Between the false field goal, the missed field goal and the missed extra point, that’s seven points that the Chiefs have left on the field. The Chiefs defense also made a costly mistake and we’ll talk about it below in our weekly notes.
