For the second week in a row, the Kansas City offense sputtered, and Alex Smith struggled. Kansas City was favored by 10 or more points over both the Giants and Bills, but lost both, scoring 19 points total. They are the first team to lose consecutive games as a double digit favorite since the 2009 Steelers.
The Chiefs still had a chance late against Buffalo, but that was extinguished when Alex Smith threw an interception. On the play, Travis Kelce was open down the middle of the field, and he reacted immediately to seeing the interception by throwing his head back and standing there.
Expect the calls for Patrick Mahomes, the first round pick who showcased his strong arm in the preseason, to grow loudly this week in Kansas City as the team is in free fall.
