Andy Reid has now been in Kansas City for five years. His team has gone on a series of streaks of both wins and losses. This indicates the Chiefs are playing well over their abilities and then they fall. I don’t think I have seen anything like this before.
2013. Won 9 in a row; lost 3 in a row; won two and lost two; In the final two games the Chiefs were coasting; the games were meaningless. Headed in the playoffs Kansas City was 11-5; They had a big lead 38 to 10 over the Indianapolis Colts in the third quarter; Suddenly the team collapsed and the Colts won 45 to 44.
2014. Lost the first two games; won 7 of the next 8 for a 7-3 mark; lost 3 in a row; won 2 of 3; The 9-7 record not good enough for the playoffs.
2015. After winning the first game, lost 5 in a row. Won 10 in a row to finish 11-5. Defeated the Houston Texans 30 to 0 in the first playoff game; lost to New England 27 to 20.
2016. Split first four games for a 2-2 mark; won 10 of next 12 for a 12-4 mark; lost to Pittsburgh 18 to 16 in the playoffs.
2017. Won 5 in a row; lost 6 of next 7 bringing record to 6-6; Won the final four to finish 10-6; Lost a 21 to 3 lead to the Tennessee Titans losing 22 to 21 in the first game of the playoffs.
