Chiefs offense bogging down when it deviates from script

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs have reached the end zone so regularly on their opening offensive possession this season that their opponents might as well stop wasting time and just give them the seven points.

The rest of the game is another matter.

Once the Chiefs are forced to deviate from their opening script - the set of roughly 15 plays that are carefully curated and crafted throughout a week of preparation - things begin to go sideways. Their once-dynamic offense looks more like a wet firecracker, forcing their once-maligned defense to bail them out in a series of nail-biting victories.
