While the Chiefs offense looked to be back on track during their 31-17 win over the Las Vegas Raiders last week, that spark disappeared against the Packers.Skyy Moore, whose hesitation led to Mahomes’ interception in the fourth quarter, finished with one reception for five yards. Marquez Valdes-Scantling had two receptions for 25 yards. Justin Watson wasn’t even targeted
Save for Travis Kelce (4-of-5 targets for 81 yards) and Rice (8-of-9 targets for 64 yards), Mahomes’ receiving corps remains consistently inconsistent. However, Mahomes took responsibility for the turnover and refused to blame the team’s loss on the refs’ questionable play-calling.
“It’s my job,” Mahomes said. “If the defense gives me an opportunity to win the game, I have to go down there and win it with my teammates. Obviously, I haven’t done that enough this season. I’ve got to try to get better because I’m sure we’ll have more opportunities as this season goes on.”
We’re not where we want to be at, but I think we’re close. We’re playing a lot of good football teams really well. Winning some of those games and losing some of those games and so we’re kind of in the go zone now where we have to try to get it going through the stretch. All we can do is learn from this game and be focused on another challenge this next week coming to Arrowhead.”
Next up, the Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills (6-6) in Week 14
