Kansas City Chiefs Get Blown out Again in 48-3 Loss to Detriot Lions

Bill Robbins@bill_kc28Correspondent ISeptember 18, 2011

After getting destroyed in week one of the 2011 NFL season, today's week two loss stung even worse for the Chiefs.

Everything that could have possibly went wrong for KC seemed to happen on Sunday.

Veteran safety Jon McGraw fumbled away an interception.

Matt Cassel threw three interceptions and looked out of sync for nearly the entire game.

The defense gave up 411 total yards of offense on the day. The defensive pass rush wasn't much of a factor for Lions' QB Matthew Stafford.

The team committed eight penalties. Kansas City also turned the ball over six times to the Lions.

Second-year WR/RB Dexter McCluster fumbled the ball for the second straight game.

Starting cornerback Brandon Flowers ripped off an opposing player's helmet in a fight that gave the Chiefs two of their eight penalties in the game. Not to mention, Flowers got burned several times by Detroit receiver Calvin Johnson.

And to make matters worse, star RB Jamaal Charles was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury in a play during the first half.

For the second straight week, the Chiefs looked like an overmatched team on this day.

They couldn't stop Stafford or DT Ndamukong Suh if they tried.

Next week, they will take on an even tougher team in the San Diego Chargers.

That's right, the Chargers.

The same San Diego team that completely demolished the Chiefs in week 15 a season ago.

It's only going to get tougher for the Chiefs as they head into the heart of their 2011 regular season schedule, and things are going to have to turn around in a hurry or there is going to be a lot of changes coming to this franchise.
