The game started out well enough for the Kansas City Chiefs as they stormed out to a 21-3 halftime lead, but in the end it was just more playoff frustration for the club. The Chiefs haven’t won a home playoff game and have just one postseason victory since their first and only trip to the AFC Championship Game following the 2003 season.
And following their epic second half collapse against the Titans in the wild card game, Chiefs fans are probably happy to see offensive coordinator Matt Nagy pack his bags for Chicago as the Bears new head coach. Of course it was Nagy that helped resurrect an offense that had been rather boring the previous few seasons. The Chiefs put up startling numbers at the start of the season when they opened with a 5-0 record. But the club was inconsistent and a mid-season stretch where they lost six of seven games cost them a chance securing a first-round bye. Not that an off-week would have made much difference.
The team’s playoff failures can’t be overlooked and Alex Smith might just be the odd man out next season. Smith had another stellar regular season and he’s led the Chiefs to the playoffs in four of his five seasons with two AFC West titles. But he’s been unable to win when it matters most, posting just a 1-4 record in his five postseason starts with the team. And with Patrick Mahomes waiting for his chance, will he finally get it next season?
