Former Eagles Head Coach Exits Playoffs, Again

Published

on

The Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid have a lot of explaining to do after blowing a 21-3 lead against the Tennessee Titans.

In the Wild Card Round of the AFC Playoffs, the Chiefs entered the half up 18 points after a QB Alex Smith touchdown pass to WR Demarcus Robinson. The Chiefs would score 0 points and only gain 56 yards in the second half, including a back-breaking missed field goal of 48 yards by Harrison Butker.

The Titans out-gained the Chiefs 397 yards to 325, and put up 209 rushing yards to the Chiefs lowly 69. In the fourth quarter, Titans QB Marcus Mariota led an 11 play, 80 yard drive that ended with a 22 yard touchdown pass to WR Eric Decker.

With time slipping away, the Chiefs needed a stop on 3rd and 10 to get the ball back and make a last, desperate drive to field goal range. That opportunity would never come, as Mariota threw a key block for RB Derrick Henry on a 22 yard scamper.

The loss moves Andy Reid’s career playoff record to 11-13.

    Reid is going to catch the heat but no one stepped up to take on a leadership role when Kelce was lost. That ultimately led to the disappointing outcome.
