The Kansas City Chiefs traded Marcus Peters because of NFL national anthem protest controversy and now that decision cost them a crucial game.

To wit . . .


Former Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters got into Mahomes face and appeared to be taunting his former teammate. Peters even appeared to grab Mahomes at one point.

Of course, Twitter outrage broke the story.

Locals don't like mixing their politics with football the culture war implications of this nice guy vs. bad-ass protester drama are pretty hard to escape.

Crushed hopes in Kansas City yet again. Too bad.

Seems like we had a good team this year. Guess not.

Out of your mind much? This was an amazing game and the Chief proved a lot to their critics. Just about everyone realizes this was the best football 2018 has seen so far.

Chiefs should play horseshoe. Then their almost victories might count for more.

Of course I expect nothing more than haters on TKC but if you really think about this game there is a lot of room to be excited about the rest of the season. You've got the Chiefs taking the national stage and giving a performance of a life time, the highest scoring game in MNF history now belongs to KC and I think it's obvious to everyone that our city's team is now playing playoff quality football every time out.

To all you bigoted trolls of Kansas City I have one thing to say, THANK YOU!!!!!!
Your city sent to us a wonderful football player in Marcus Peters. Your bigotry against black NFL players protesting jack-booted thug police who go about MURDERING black people and GETTING AWAY WITH IT.
Well, Marcus is in the care of a Super Bowl winning team while Kansas City will still be dreaming of it. PEACE OUT!!!

A real defensive struggle, reminds me of dick vermeils teams, the offense couldn’t out score the defense, the wheels are coming off now and they will finish third and out of the playoffs, but hey, they always make the first half of the season exciting

First 11:53 you’re right! giving up the most points ever is real promising! Hahahahaha!

Don’t worry chiefs fans, mahomie and hill will be playing for the patriots in two years, now that’s something to look forward too! Hahahahaha!

We just need a left tackle, and a defense and a new defensive coordinator the replace the senile old dumb fuck Bob Sutton. Our defense is terrible.

It was Mahomes that forced that final interception much more than Peters' talent in catching it.
For those celebrating Peters, just wait. He has shown his ass here in KC and in LA. He is a showboat with an attitude problem. It is only a matter of time before he is released.
The Rams won't make it past the Saints anyway.
Mahomes showed how green he really is tonight, but maybe he has learned a lesson.
The bottom line is the Chiefs will have to beat a team like the Steelers or the Patriots to go to the Super Bowl. And even if they made it, I don't think anybody can top the Saints as long as they stay healthy.

A fun game to watch, but sloppy as hell on both sides. Teams that allow 50+ points do not win championships. It was the Rams and their below-average defense against the Chief's worst-in-the-league defense.

The Saints will win the Super Bowl. In a few years, Mahomes and Hill (and probably a few others) will move on to better-paying pastures

^^Yea right. The Chiefs will make Mahomes the highest paid player in the game in two years. Please don't ever comment on football again. You know nothing. Stick to the Real Housewives of whatever. It's more your speed.
