Kansas City Chiefs
One loss is no concern for panic. However, the Kansas City Chiefs dropped their first game against a division rival. The Los Angeles Raiders put on an offensive clinic against the Chiefs and with the win moved to just one game behind the defending champs in the AFC West.
But I get it, you could still be saying that the Chiefs are the Chiefs and there’s no need to panic. While that may be true in terms of allure, the fact is, Kansas City will head into their Week 6 matchup against the 4-1 Bills looking to redeem themselves after an embarrassing loss at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.
The Raiders have the week off, but the Chiefs are now playing while looking over their shoulder at competition that was not expected to be there. They cannot afford the same slip-up they had against the Raiders.
The Bills, despite their defeat Tuesday, are still one of the best teams in the AFC, and quite frankly, in the NFL. The Chiefs may not be panicking, but if they come out as flat as they did against the Raiders, there may be a problem.
