Sunday Night Football did not go according to plan.
The Chiefs fell to a 27-19 loss to the Packers, losing position in the AFC playoff race and casting doubt on the team’s ability to pull together good performances in a potential Super Bowl run.
This was a poor game, and there are plenty of people to blame. Let’s take a look at three Chiefs who are on thin ice after a terrible loss that reduced the team to 8-4 on the season.
3 Chiefs on Thin Ice After Disturbing Loss to Packers
1. Skyy Moore – WR
I hate to keep repeating it, but apart from Marquez Valdes-Scantling, arguably no player has fallen worse short of expectations than the Chiefs’ 2022 second-round pick.
Moore finished with one catch for five yards on two targets, but the one he didn’t catch could have been the game’s most important play. It was almost poetic, as Patrick Mahomes was tagged with an interception despite his wide receiver’s lack of effort.

We may debate whether the interception was Mahomes’ fault for a terrible pass or Moore’s fault for stopping running the route, but it’s a bad look in either case.
Several times this season, passes to Moore have ended up in the clutches of the defenders. A player who plays more than 60% of the snaps must make a play for his quarterback at some time.
I still believe in Skyy, as does the organization, but 21 catches for 244 yards isn’t going to cut it this late in the season. Moore desperately needs a strong game against the Bills.
As you’ll discover on the next page, he’s not the only Chief who has to improve.
