NFL Week 3 grades: Chiefs get a ‘D’ after upset loss to Colts, Dolphins earn an ‘A’ for upsetting Bills

Published:

It’s rarely you see the Kansas City Chiefs fully implode, but that is exactly what happened on Sunday throughout 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 need actually been the worst considered one of all. 

Offensively, the Colts defense appeared to frustrate Patrick Mahomes, who threw for just 84 yards in the primary half. As Mahomes headed to the locker room at halftime, his frustrations appeared to boil over. The Chiefs quarterback got right into a spat with offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who decided to let the clock run out at the top of the half as a substitute of attempting to get into field goal range although the Chiefs only needed about 25 yards to have a shot at a kick. 

Despite the offense’s rough day, the Chiefs still had a likelihood to get this game into time beyond regulation, but those probabilities went out the window when Mahomes threw an interception on Kansas City’s final offensive play of the sport. 

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

The Colts would rating a touchdown three plays after the muffed punt to take an early 7-0 lead. As if that wasn’t bad enough, kicker Matt Ammendola missed each an additional point AND a field goal, which was obviously costly in a game where the Chiefs only lost by three points. The missed field goal got here from just 34 yards away. 

The Chiefs field goal team was also involved in considered one of the more strange calls of the day. With Kansas City facing a fourth-and-11, the Chiefs lined up for a 42-yard field goal, but Ammendola never got to aim the kick because Andy Reid CALLED FOR A FAKE and things didn’t end well. 

Between the fake field goal, the missed field goal and the missed extra point, that is seven points the Chiefs left on the sphere. The Chiefs defense also made a costly mistake and we’ll speak about that below in our weekly grades. 

Alright, let’s get to the grades for each game from Week 3. When you’re searching for a deeper dive on the Browns’ 29-17 win over the Steelers that was played on Thursday, make sure to click here.
