The Kansas City Chiefs have lost four games out of six
Emotions are boiling over as the Kansas City Chiefs feel the pressure following their latest NFL loss and Travis Kelce has now called on the whole offense at the Arrowhead Stadium to get it together.
The 20-14 defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day left Kelce in a rage that required the team’s head coach to calm him down whilst Patrick Mahomes was teary eyed with 48 seconds remaining in the final quarter.

The receivers have struggled in recent weeks, despite the form of Rashee Rice, leaving their star quarterback unable to find plays to deliver points to the team and Kelce is making sure people don’t blame Mahomes.
“It’s not just one guy,” Travis Kelce said to his brother on their New Heights podcast. “It’s not just me playing like dog s**t. It’s not just us not being able to get the run game going. It’s not just us not being on the same page, passing-wise.
“Everybody’s in this f—ing thing together. Everybody at some point isn’t being accountable. Every single play is somebody not doing their job, and it’s me … it’s everybody on the team.
“And whether that’s prep, whether that’s having the confidence and understanding of what the defense is in their coverages, their gaps in the run game, how we’re picking up blitzes, how we’re running routes versus certain coverages. All the above.”
How do they fix the problem?
Since their Week 10 bye game, the Chiefs are .333 and have lost four games in six, with their two wins only coming against the Raiders. Ironically, those two wins have kept them at the top of the AFC West as the Raiders are two games behind with seven wins.
Now out of contention to win the AFC Conference, the defending Super Bowl champions are faced with a tough two weeks to save their form and season before heading into the play-offs and Kelce called on everyone to work together.
“Everybody’s just got to f**king do their job,” Kelce added. “Throughout the season, we’ve shown during drives that we can be a high-powered offense if we don’t hurt ourselves with penalties, if we’re not playing first-and-f**king-20.
“Every other drive or every other set of first downs just hasn’t been a well-oiled machine like we’ve been in the past and we just got to get everybody on the same f**king page.”
