The Kansas City Chiefs walked out of Mem Antworten

KANSAS CITY Anthony Hitchens Jersey , Mo. — orial Coliseum in Los Angeles late Monday night confident that they could beat the Rams if they should get a rematch in the Super Bowl.If only they don’t have to beat themselves, too.For all the positives the Chiefs could take from their 54-51 shootout loss to the Rams — and there were plenty — the glaring mistakes overshadowed them. Patrick Mahomes tossed a trio of interceptions, lost a pair of fumbles and was sacked three times. The defense gave up too many big plays. Harrison Butker missed an extra point. And the Chiefs were penalized 13 times for 135 yards.Yet the Chiefs still led the Rams in the fourth quarter in a record-setting, back-and-forth offensive bonanza. They still had a chance to beat one of the NFL’s top teams on the road.So yes, they walked away with a loss. But also with a lot of confidence.“I mean, the fact that we were in this game with three scoring turnovers, we gave them 21 points off turnovers and they’re a good team,” Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley said.“If we can eliminate those penalties and those turnovers, this game is a different game. If we can score off those drives, it’s a different game. It all comes down to being disciplined and executing.”The Chiefs (9-2) had done that most of the season. They had only eight turnovers over their first 10 games, and while penalties have been a constant problem, they had been able to overcome them.That all changed under the bright Monday night lights.Los Angeles linebacker Samson Ebukam returned Mahomes’ first fumble for a touchdown in the second quarter. He returned an interception 25 yards for another score in the third. And two interceptions in the final minutes scuttled any chance of setting up Butker for a tying field goal.“You go back in a game like this, heck, I wish I would have called some different plays. We can all do better,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We can learn from this in a lot of different ways. We’ve got to look at it individually http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-chad-henne-jersey , even though we talk team, and that helps us become a better team when we do that and be real with ourselves.”The Chiefs will have a bit of extra time for that self-assessment. They returned to Kansas City for their bye week, giving them an opportunity to reflect and recover.There were plenty of positives to reflect upon in Los Angeles, too.— Mahomes threw for 478 yards, the second-most in franchise history, and matched his own club record with six touchdown passes. His quarterback rating just edged that of Rams counterpart Jared Goff, while his TD total set a record for a game on Monday night.— Tyreek Hill had a career-high 10 catches for 215 yards and two TDs. It was the second-highest yardage total in Chiefs history, trailing only Stephone Paige’s 309 yards against San Diego in 1985.— Tight end Travis Kelce also had 10 catches for 127 yards and a score, extending his streak of games with a reception to 74 — the third-longest in franchise history.— Kareem Hunt ran for 70 yards while catching three passes for 41 yards and a score. That made him the first player since Lenny Moore of the Baltimore Colts in 1961 to have seven touchdowns through the air and on the ground in his team’s first 11 games.There are dozens more statistical superlatives from Monday night’s game, and indeed, from the first 11 games of the season.But perhaps the most important fact is that Kansas City’s two losses have come on the road against powerhouses in the Rams and Patriots. The Chiefs also remain atop the AFC West and have the No. 1 seed in the playoffs still firmly in their sights.If the Chiefs want that rematch with the Rams in the Super Bowl, the one they are confident they can win, earning a playoff path through Arrowhead Stadium will be paramount down the stretch.“You wanted to go win that game going into the bye week against a good team like that, a playoff team. But at the same time, we still control our own destiny Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey ,” Mahomes said.“We can go out there and win football games after the bye week. It’s kind of like that reset, get your body right and come back with that mentality that we’re going to win and we can still get home-field advantage, hopefully.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs trudged into the locker room after their first loss with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, a streak that goes back six games to his Week 17 start last season.Here’s the thing, though: There was no sense of defeat in Gillette Stadium on Sunday night.Instead, the Chiefs seemed downright emboldened by the way they fought back from a big halftime hole against New England. And if not for a litany of injuries to their defense and another clutch game by Tom Brady and the New England offense, which drove downfield in the final minutes to set up a winning field goal in the Patriots’ 43-40 victory, the Chiefs might have kept their winning streak going.“We got down, we put ourselves in a huge hole, and I’m just proud of my team and how we fought to get back in the game,” Mahomes said. “We had the lead at one point and then we ended up not coming out with the win. But just that fight, it’s something you can carry on into the rest of this season.”All of which is true, of course. But the way the Chiefs performed under the lights in New England may have been more than just the stereotypical moral victory.Mahomes threw two interceptions in the first half, when Bill Belichick’s defense seemed to have the young quarterback confused. The Chiefs’ running game was going nowhere and a defense missing lead pass rusher Justin Houston and its top three safeties to injuries looked like a sieve.It was 24-9 at the break and could have been much worse.But for the first time in his budding career Jordan Lucas Jersey , Mahomes not only was forced to make massive in-game adjustments, but did so successfully. He wound up throwing four second-half touchdown passes, three of them to Tyreek Hill, and that same offense that scuffled through the first 30 minutes and found itself in a deep hole piled up 31 points over the final two quarters.In fact, the Kansas City offense was rolling so impressively in the second half that it might have scored its final touchdown too quickly. Mahomes found Hill over the middle, and one of the fastest players in the NFL turned up the sideline for a 75-yard score that knotted the game 40-all.Two problems with that: There were still 3½ minutes left and Brady was on the other sideline.The Patriots moved seemingly at ease against the Chiefs’ porous defense, getting into position for Stephen Gostkowski to knock through a chip-shot field goal as time expired. And the old cliche of the last team having the ball would win wound up being spot-on.“It was a heck of a football game,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I was proud of how the guys battled. We will learn a lot from this game. We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a little bit early and you can’t do that against a good football team. So, we learn from it and we move on.”Because the fact is Kansas City is still 5-1 with the toughest six-game stretch of the season already finished. There’s another spotlight game coming up this Sunday night against Cincinnati, but that game will take place at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs tend to have a big advantage.They’re still a game ahead of the Chargers in the AFC West, and they’ve defeated Philip Rivers and Co. on the road, along with picking up road wins over the Steelers and Broncos.“You want to win. As a competitor, you want to win every single week,” Mahomes said Jordan Lucas Jersey , “but you learn from everything in this league. You learn from every experience that you have. You’re not going to win every single game. And so for us, we’re going to take the things that we did in that second half to kind of get us back into it and kind of keep that stuff going as the season goes on.”The Chiefs still believe they’re the best team in the AFC, and going toe-to-toe with the reigning champions on the road Sunday night only underscored that belief. Defensive tackle Allen Bailey even predicted that they would “see those cats again,” alluding to a possible playoff showdown.So, there was no sense of defeat in the KC locker room Sunday night.There was a feeling of steadfast resolve and unwavering confidence.“Guys showed character. Down what, 15 at halftime? Guys showed character,” defensive tackle Chris Jones said. “It’s a tough loss, a tough loss, but you learn a lot from that. You learn a lot about your team and about yourself and who you are. We are going to face adversity throughout the season and this team came together, we battled back, but they ended up kicking the field goal for the win.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta
