Welcome to this week’s edition of Let’s Argue!Inspired by a video series created by music reviewer Anthony Fantano Juan Thornhill Jersey Womens , Robert Rimpson’s weekly series takes a look at hot takes, unpopular opinions, wacky predictions and more from Kansas City Chiefs fans.The Chiefs did not deserve to beat DetroitIt is true that the Chiefs may have had their worst game of the season on offense and special teams on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, but I think saying they didn’t deserve to win is going a bit too far.The Lions played well — and even outplayed the Chiefs in certain areas of the game — but they had their share of mistakes as well. The Lions lost two fumbles — one of which was returned for a touchdown — and only scored seven points on the Chiefs’ three turnovers. The Chiefs made their share of mistakes, too — but the 100-yard fumble return, Chris Jones’ performance on the defensive line and the final game-winning drive showed that the Chiefs were able to make plays when they were absolutely necessary — which in my book, is more than enough to deserve the win.The linebackers are the biggest problem on defenseThis actually something I’ve been keeping an eye on for several weeks — but as of right now, I don’t agree with this take.The linebackers are the key to stopping the run, and the Chiefs have allowed the third-most rushing yards per game in the NFL with 149.8. While that isn’t ideal Harrison Butker Jersey , the Chiefs’ biggest concern should be not allowing big plays through the air. As evidenced in the Detroit game (and against the Baltimore Ravens last week), even if teams run the ball extremely well against Kansas City, they need to gain big yards through the air to keep up with the Chiefs offense. The biggest plays in Week 3 for the Ravens were two pseudo-Hail Mary throws that converted third-and-longs and extended important drives that kept Baltimore in the game. Likewise, many of the Lions’ biggest plays were long completions through the air where Chiefs cornerbacks had chances to make a play. The Chiefs are going to have a lot of leads this year.While stopping the run would be nice, stopping deep passes are even more important for holding on to those leads.The Lions gave the blueprint on how to beat the ChiefsThis is an interesting take because I both agree and disagree with it.I agree that Detroit showed that the Chiefs offense is beatable (without Tyreek Hill at least) and that putting pressure on Patrick Mahomes — along with forcing turnovers — can give teams a good shot at defeating Kansas City. But this isn’t new information. Pressuring the quarterback and forcing turnovers will give you a good chance against any team in the league. The problem is that making those things happen against Kansas City is no easy task. The injury to left tackle Eric Fisher does make pressuring the quarterback easier, but Mahomes’ ability to extend plays with his feet can (and have) made up for a lack of protection. While the fumbles were plentiful in the Detroit game, Mahomes has still yet to throw an interception this year — and three of the Chiefs’ four lost fumbles this season happened in one game. My guess is that the team will make protecting the ball a focus during practice this week — making forcing turnovers that much harder.Chiefs fans need to R-E-L-A-XFor the most part, I agree with this take. While I don’t think the game against Detroit meant nothing, Chiefs fans who believe that sky is about to fall because of one bad offensive performance are overreacting a bit. Think about it this way: on their worst game of the year Reggie Ragland Jersey , the Chiefs still managed to score 34 points (27 on offense) and Mahomes engineered a game-winning drive when it was needed most. If you can do that on a bad day, your team is in pretty good shape. But I understand the worry. Chiefs fans are conditioned to believe something bad is going to happen sooner or later — especially when the team has a good record; as the this tweet put it, fans are “waiting for the other shoe to drop.” Patrick Mahomes changes things, so Chiefs fans should get used to this new way of life — where the team can play badly and still come out with a win.Morris Claiborne will save the Chiefs secondaryI strongly disagree with this. To put it plainly, I think the Chiefs secondary — particularly the cornerbacks — needs a lot of help. They give up big plays often.The best of the bunch has arguably been Bashaud Breeland — which isn’t great.Claiborne may be a good player, but I’m of the opinion that nothing short of an All-Pro cornerback will improve the secondary a significant amount. Could Claiborne turn out to be good? Sure. Do I think that Claiborne will be the All-Pro CB the Chiefs need? No. I do not. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Just like everybody fortunate enough to be at the Coliseum on Monday night, Sean McVay was still buzzing when he left the building after the Los Angeles Rams‘ epic victory over Kansas City.When he finally reached his suburban home, the coach wasn’t ready to lose that feeling. Instead, McVay and some friends kicked off the Rams’ bye week by watching highlights of Los Angeles’ 54-51 win deep into the night.“I was pretty wired Cameron Erving Jersey , man,” McVay said Tuesday afternoon, about 21 hours after kickoff. “I would say right now is about the first time I’m starting to wind down and to be able to take a nap hopefully here soon.”McVay and the Rams have absolutely earned their sleep.Los Angeles (10-1) is this season’s first team to reach double digits in victories after holding off the Chiefs in a game that featured so many eye-popping digits: a 14-touchdown, 105-point, 1,001-yard masterpiece of pure entertainment.The third highest-scoring game in league history was the latest peak in the Rams’ two-year transformation under McVay, whose staff has put this long-downtrodden franchise in position to clinch its first back-to-back division titles since the 1970s as soon as this weekend if Carolina beats Seattle.The win over Kansas City also was the culmination of two difficult weeks for the organization and its city.Players, coaches and team employees were forced from their homes by wildfires two weeks ago while many were still reeling from a mass shooting near their training complex in Thousand Oaks. The Rams then spent the previous week on the road in Colorado Springs to train for the high altitudes of Mexico City — only to have the Monday night game moved back home to LA on six days’ notice.“I think the players did an outstanding job of handling what seems like two weeks that was about two years’ worth of things that they had to go through,” McVay said. “All they did was just handle it like pros and do everything the right way that makes you appreciative of just being able to work with people like this.”The final snap against Kansas City felt like closure to the players who persevered through this two-week stretch. McVay and the Rams now get a holiday week to contemplate what they’ve accomplished and how far they’ve still got to go.Because for all their success Demetrius Harris Jersey , McVay knows the Rams have ample room for improvement.McVay and his staff will use part of their bye week to study this triumph over the Chiefs, likely turning a critical eye on ways to help a defense that relied on big plays to survive this thriller. Kansas City outgained Los Angeles 546-455 with six touchdown passes by Patrick Mahomes.The Rams are desperately looking forward to the probable post-bye return of standout cornerback Aqib Talib. They were also happy to get contributions from surprising defensive sources in an otherwise offense-dominated night.Samson Ebukam, the Rams’ unsung second-year outside linebacker, might have been the most important player on the field against the Chiefs. Ebukam returned a fumble forced by Aaron Donald for a touchdown, made a preposterous one-armed interception and returned it for another TD, and finally pressured Mahomes just enough to impede his throwing motion on a pass subsequently intercepted by Rams teammate Marcus Peters with 1:18 left.“It’s crazy we had five takeaways, just to see they still put up 51 points,” Rams receiver Robert Woods said. “We tried to eliminate the big plays, but we know they have some talented players. At the end of the day Mitchell Schwartz Jersey , we sealed them off.”The Rams can also use their time off to get healthy, which is always a good thing at this time of year.Los Angeles dropped those 54 points on Kansas City even with mild contributions from NFL rushing leader Todd Gurley, whose 13-game touchdown streak ended while he made just 12 carries for 54 yards and caught three passes for 39 yards.Confirming what many suspected during the game, McVay said Gurley was limited by an ankle injury after “getting rolled up on” earlier in the game.McVay doesn’t believe it will be a long-term problem, and he said Gurley’s light action in the second half was mostly due to the Chiefs’ schemes — particularly a set with 11 men in the box late in the game, leading to McVay’s decision to call passing plays in a last-minute attempt to get a game-clinching first down.“There were a lot of instances where they were playing some defensive structures where they were basically daring you to throw it,” McVay said. “That’s a result of the respect they have for Todd and our running game.”
