Denver at Kansas City
Make no mistake, the Kansas City Chiefs lost the game against the Broncos because of poor coaching and poor coaching decisions. I blame sloppy play on both the players and the coaches, but the main reason the Chiefs lost was because of the horrible play calling at the end of both halves. At the end of the first half, up by 7 and really just needing to keep the clock moving and punt it away leaving the Broncos without much time to score, instead of the logical easy call to run the ball, they had Smith throw a pass that was intercepted. The Broncos then scored a TD. And then, with a half a minute to go in the fourth quarter, they decided to run the ball instead of just taking a knee and going to overtime. Charles fumbled the ball and it was returned for a TD. Of course the players bear responsibility, but the simple fact is they should never have been in that situation in the first place.
