The Chiefs were a double-digit favorite against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football. Arrowhead Stadium was packed and all signs pointed to the Chiefs remaining undefeated.

Somehow, they lost, 19-13. It was the lowest scoring game of the Patrick Mahomes era. The A-team of Herbie Teope, Sam McDowell and Sam Mellinger join host Blair Kerkhoff to dissect the loss and determine what it means for the Chiefs going forward.
