Chiefs fans all over Kansas City let out a deep exhale at the same on Sunday.
The Chiefs beat the Dolphins 21-14 at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany as KC held off Miami’s late rally.
The Chiefs improved to 7-2 on the season, but there were plenty of things that upset fans.
The third-and-1 call on the Chiefs’ penultimate drive of the game
Chris Jones’ ill-timed penalty that helped Miami score a touchdown
Mecole Hardman’s punt return inside the 5-yard line
Fortunately, the Chiefs overcame all of that, thanks to the strong effort of the defense, which scored a touchdown and held the top-ranked Dolphins offense to 14 points.
A fan on Reddit wrote: “Well, we won, but the offense really needs some serious introspection. They only had two meaningful drives and failed to close out the game.”
Another shared this: “The narrative looks different if Jones isn’t a bonehead, but this offense is broken.”
‘Twasn’t pretty but a win is a win. #Chiefs defense needs to realize they’re the reason.
Mecole, stop fielding those punts inside the 5.
Andy, just run the damn ball on 3rd and 1.
MVS & Watson, please for the love of god learn to get separation. #KCvsMIA

Our Offensive Playcalling is going to cost us in the Playoffs if they don’t fix it, NOW.
