    Last week Kansas City Chiefs Womens Hoodie , we talked about the difficulty in calling the top of the market. This week, many outside of Kansas City will wonder if the Kansas City Chiefs have plateaued. They ran into the market leader — showing they are legitimate competition — but weren’t quite able to get over the hump.Still, the team left with a great deal of confidence and resolve. STOCK UPSafety Jordan Lucas: Lucas made his Chiefs debut last week, when he stepped in for the 17 (or so) safeties that were injured, and had an impressive interception and 49-yard return. This week, he nearly picked off Brady. But it’s his steady play overall (in 100 percent of the defensive snaps this week) that has endeared him to Chiefs fans. Lucas has at least earned an extended look when guys like Eric Murray and Eric Berry return to the field. Perhaps he can be part of the solution to one the defense’s biggest problems. As the AP Nerd squad says… all aboard!Linebacker Breeland Speaks: After last week, I didn’t believe it. This week, with a dramatically increased role, Speaks showed consistent disruption and a high motor. His sack/fumble was a pivotal play for a Chiefs defense that badly needed one as part of their furious third-quarter comeback.If only he could have held on for that second sack later on! But perhaps that will be added motivation for the rookie. Speaks is getting better each week. Even if he never becomes an elite edge rusher, he can help this team win if he keeps trending in this direction.Kick returner Tremon Smith: A tip of the hat to Chiefs twitter, as more than one person pointed out during the game that Smith was getting closer to breaking a big kick return. Soon thereafter, he did just that. Filling in for an injured De’Anthony Thomas, the rookie totaled 180 yards on his four kick returns. He’s yet to make an impact on defense, but if he keeps breaking off kick returns, he’ll more than earn his keep.Special teams coordinator Dave Toub: Speaking of Tremon, he’s just one part of a Chiefs special teams unit that has been — according to Football Outsiders —historically good this year. When a special teams unit has a kicker that hasn’t missed all season, kick returners who consistently help win the field position battle, and the unit doesn’t miss a beat through injuries and roster turnover, you know the coach is doing something right.The offensive line: Part of it is the quarterback. As many of us anticipated, Patrick Mahomes has displayed an awareness and elusiveness that helps him avoid getting sacked. But you still have to respect the way the offensive line has played — especially against New England. No sacks allowed Womens Customized Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , eight yards per carry for Kareem Hunt and 40 points in Foxboro is a good night’s work — especially considering they were down two starters by the end of the game. The big uglies up front didn’t miss a beat with Jordan Devey and Andrew Wylie. This week, they’ll welcome back an old friend to help hold down the fort, and allow the kid to keep running around and making plays.Running back Kareem Hunt: At some point, the Patriots will stop Hunt from breaking off big plays — but it hasn’t happened yet.Others trending in a bullish direction: Harrison Butker, Patrick Mahomes, Chris Jones, Derrick Nnadi, Allen Bailey, Tyreek HillSTOCK DOWN Photo by David Eulitt/Getty ImagesThe run defense: There was a ton of attention paid to stopping the run this offseason. It appears the defensive linemen are doing their part. So what is the issue? Sure, Eric Berry would help erase a lot of mistakes, and make plays like a missile in the run game. But the others in the middle of the Chiefs defense seem as incapable of getting off blocks as they are at tackling. I still believe there is talent to at least be competent against the run, but the fundamentals must improve.All of the inside linebackers: Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach specifically targeted and invested in Anthony Hitchens, just like he did with Reggie Ragland the year before. So far, neither of the starting inside linebackers look right. They appear hesitant and (at least) a step slow. Neither was expected to be excellent in coverage, but both were known to be sure tacklers and big hitters.Unfortunately. the missed tackles have been more frequent than the highlights. Opponents have found great success when targeting the middle of the Chiefs defense. What should have been the most reliably upgraded position group on the team now appears to be the biggest weakness. Something has to change — perhaps giving snaps to Dorian O’Daniel and/or Ben Niemann? Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton: So, if the run defense isn’t good, the team isn’t getting off blocks or tackling, and the defensive back just signed off the street was expected to keep Gronk from winning the game this week… well, it’s fair to question the man in charge of the defense. Not all of the Chiefs struggles on defense are Bob Sutton’s fault, but adjustments have to be made http://www.chiefscheapshoponline.com , and he is responsible for putting the players in positions where they can succeed— that is, to do what they are capable of doing. As my friends vented post-game, we’re still bearish on the coordinator until further notice. Running back Spencer Ware: Ware is doing his part in pass protection, but he isn’t really making plays in the limited number of touches he sees. I noted that Damien Williams hasn’t been productive in previous weeks, and this week it was Spencer Ware. Perhaps either would be more effective with more volume? Kareem Hunt is still the guy in Kansas City, but he’ll need some more help from his friends at some point this season. Others trending a bearish direction: Ron Parker, Terrance Smith, Josh ShawSTOCK FLAT Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY SportsWide receiver Sammy Watkins: As talented as Watkins is, he still isn’t getting consistent targets. Perhaps we should expect him to have a big game every three or four weeks, while Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce take turns on the others. Or it might just be that he’s building a successful career out of being a decoy — a very highly paid one at that. Center Mitch Morse: The Chiefs center has been among the best offensive linemen on the team from the day he was drafted. Unfortunately for Morse and the Chiefs, he’s battled injuries throughout his career. Now with his third concussion (that we know of), Morse will miss more time in a contract year.Others who are who we thought they were: Kendall Fuller, Anthony Sherman, Travis KelcePatrick Mahomes Week 3 film review: something good and something bad This is part one of a three-part weekly film analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes.That was the worst game of Patrick Mahomes’ debut season as the starting quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs. Mahomes fought some first-quarter jitters and second-half stagnancy to finish with a 24 of 38 for 314 yards and three-touchdown performance. THAT….was the worst?(Yes.)It was an up-and-down performance for the second-year player from Whitehouse, Texas, and somehow, he still dazzled. He still did remarkable things that I don’t have enough space to write about, and he had his best play of his young career. THAT…was the worst?(Yes.)In a game that the 2018 Chiefs offense showed a few cracks in its armor and gave a few clues as to how defenses can slow this explosive unit, they still managed to score 35 points in the first half and 38 in total. They’re scoring average dropped from 40 points per game to 39.3 points per game.As Kansas Citians, we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. It wasn’t dropping this week. There’s going to be a performance unbecoming of the expectations we currently have for this unit. Someone will get them. The 49ers helped solve some of the puzzle Kansas City Chiefs T-Shirt , but it still isn’t enough. The kid has not been perfect, but he’s been phenomenal. The best part is, there’s still plenty of room for growth.Something goodIs there anything scarier than giving this offense a free play?I like the development of this group of talent getting an opportunity to try and make a big play without any negative consequence. That scenario just seems unfair.You saw Mahomes’ disappointment in Week 1 of the season when an offside penalty was blown prematurely before they had a chance to take a shot. That’s the mentality you want to see. On the play above, Mahomes didn’t take a shot at the end zone but still found an explosive play from the defensive mishap.Mahomes can’t catch the wide snap, but he picks the ball up in enough time to get his eyes up the field and read the defense. He hangs in the pocket long enough to find tight end Travis Kelce working behind underneath zone defenders. The calmness to deliver this throw after the chaos of the offside and the ball being on the ground is impressive. He worked through the play even though factors around him were disorganized.The mentality to attack the game is prevalent in this play is just what you want to see. We haven’t had a quarterback take advantage of opportunities like this enough in Kansas City. Mahomes is gifted a chance to get the ball in the hands of Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins or, in this case, Kelce. Hopefully, this a trend that continues.BONUS SOMETHING GOOD:Mahomes did an excellent job in slowing down and throwing Kelce inside on this corner route to protect him. Like we saw last week on the touchdown pass to Kelce last week, he’s reducing the amount of impact Kelce could feel by splitting the space in half. Great work.Something badSometimes, you forget Sunday was Mahomes’ fourth career start.Second-and-10 in the first quarter. The Chiefs motion Chris Conley across the formation and cornerback Richard Sherman bounces out with him. The 49ers are showing a single-high safety look, and safety Antone Exum walks up to the line of scrimmage. The Chiefs have used this particular look in the boundary throughout the preseason and regular season. Kareem Hunt has always free released with no protection responsibilities. Hunt free releases on the play and the offensive line blocks the four down linemen. Mahomes never sees Exum on a blitz until he finishes the play on the ground.I’ve spent a lot of time looking at this play to try and be fair to Mahomes on assignment. I’ve come to the conclusion that there wasn’t a protection failure and he just didn’t identify the blitzing safety. Had Mahomes seen Exum, he could’ve dumped it off to Kareem Hunt for positive yards, as Sherman bailed into a deep zone on the snap of the ball. Quarterback anecdoteEvery week I add a quick note about something I’ve picked up about the quarterback position through my time learning and playing the game.There are changes to a quarterback’s assignment when it comes to running the clock out. If a team is in a situation where they just have to run the ball and not turn it over to win, the priority for the quarterback isn’t the play fake; it’s watching the ball. As you can see on this play late in the fourth quarter, Mahomes is quick to track the ball, making sure that there isn’t a fumble. In a special situation like this, the play-fake is secondary to keeping track of where the football is. It’s a little thing, but it’s important. Details like this matter.
