Head coach and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel and special teams coach Tom McMahon have a lot of work to do with their players this week.
Crennel's defense gave up 30 points from the opening kickoff to the early goings of the third quarter. Even though Brandon Flowers and Kendrick Lewis are out, things won't be any better if those two are still injured while Hali serves his suspension.
But Crennel has seen some downs before, and he knows he must get his defense to move on from some losses.
McMahon's special teams defense was lit up late in the third quarter by Golden Tate, who rocked the Chiefs with a 92-yard punt return for a touchdown. Although the game was already out of hand, the Chiefs can't allow long punt returns like that, especially if a game is on the line.
Like Crennel, McMahon has to find a solution before the real games begin.
