After the Chiefs’ win, an NFL analyst slams them, saying, “It’s a Boring Football Team.”
With a 20-17 home victory against the New York Giants in Week 8, the Kansas City Chiefs survived Monday Night Football.
“It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile, winning is winning,” said the legendary Dominic Toretto. Last night, the Chiefs were victorious. They are now 4-4, and it makes little difference how they got there, though some observers may disagree.

Ryan Clark is back at it.
Ryan Clark, a former NFL safety who now works as an ESPN analyst, has not been a fan of Kansas City this season. Week after week, the ex-athlete has seemed to target the Chiefs franchise, from his un-retire troll to his record-breaking forecast.

Scott, it’s not as successful as it once was since this team has lost its identity.
The NFL analyst didn’t stop there, describing the strategy used by opposing teams to thwart the Chiefs offense.
“It’s late in the  season, and Raheem Morris and the Atlanta Falcons are on the field… From a two-high shell, they play everything… He’d either bring a guy down to get Tyreek Hill on the deep cross when he was at number three, which is the last wide receiver close to the line, in a split-safety defense — so you have safeties standing on either side of the field, deep in the half 18-20 yards [downfield]— or he’d bring a guy down to get Tyreek Hill on the deep cross when he was at number three, which is the last wide receiver close to the line… Nokia News – Quick Recap
