Falcons Vs. Chiefs, Week 1: Arrowhead Pride Reflects On Chiefs Collapse

SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride spared no words about the Kansas City Chiefs' 40-24 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Kansas City played Atlanta almost dead even through the first two quarters but was outscored 20-7 in the second half. That was enough for Arrowhead Pride to label it a collapse:

KC had one sack. They only gave up 84 rushing yards but that's because Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense did what they want in the air. Ryan had eight incomplete passes and nearly 300 yards (299). Three touchdown passes, including the one to TG, which he dunked. I could put a lot more under this category but simply saying the defense sucked should suffice.

Another major factor that the blog discussed was Peyton Hillis rushing for only 16 yards on seven carries. The running back signed a deal worth approximately $3 million in the offseason, and Chiefs fans were sure that would mean more than 16 yards per game:

After the game the media is ushered down to the locker room. We wait right outside the locker room door until Romeo Crennel addresses the team and the media can enter. Before Romoe came out, Peyton Hillis was seen walking out of the locker room. It was probably the fastest I've ever seen a player get changed and exit. I'm not sure what happened there but he probably wasn't happy with his seven-carry, 16-yard performance.
