Listen to the total presser above or by way of clicking right here.

In his opening remark, Reid mentioned he noticed Sunday’s sport in the similar manner he had noticed it right away later on — reiterating that his Chiefs made extra errors and misplaced the turnover combat. Reid added that after Buffalo wins the turnover combat, it’s undefeated.

Reid then took questions, which we now have rounded up in 4 takeaways:

Reid shared what he has noticed when comparing his offensive line play thru six video games.

The Chiefs have had their ups and downs alongside the offensive line, with sturdy play towards groups just like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Las Vegas Raiders, in conjunction with much less spectacular efforts towards the Indianapolis Colts and the Bills.

“We’ve been fortunate to play some good defensive lines — and that helps you get better,” mentioned Reid. “You’re going to lose every once in a while. That happens all throughout the league and you’re striving to win every battle — but at the same time, we’re playing really good, talented defensive lines. That’s the bottom line — and we have another one coming up this week — but we look forward to those challenges because it helps you down the road (and helps you) become better. Andy (Heck) is always looking for things to do up front to work the protections and that’s not going to change. He’s going to keep doing those kinds of things to try and work according to what they present.”

Reid plans to carry off on figuring out the road’s id at this second.

“They’re a tough group,” he mentioned. “They did a decent job with the pass protection yesterday against a good defensive front. Run game, we got to clean a couple of things up there but there were some good things and there were some things we got to take care of. But what their identity is? I think it’s probably too early in the season (to say). I like doing identities at the end of the year — not at the beginning.”

Reid chuckled ahead of remaining.

“I know they’re a tough group, if you want a feisty group. So you can take that for right now and then we’ll see how we grow.”

Reid shared phrases on how he felt the line of defense carried out towards the Bills.

Pro Football Focus credited the Chiefs’ D-line with 16 of the 23 pressures towards Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Defensive take on Chris Jones recorded a go back and forth sack.

“I thought we did a good job. When we didn’t get there, we at least blocked a few throws – and you’re not talking about a shorter quarterback back there,” laughed Reid.

The Chiefs additionally added 3 bat-downs as a membership.

“He’s a big kid. We were able to block a couple of them there. But, we’ll always be growing there with it, but we seem to get decent pressures at times on them and that’s an important thing that we keep getting better at down the road.”

Reid conveyed what he as discovered about extensive receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who performed his best possible sport of the season within the loss

Smith-Schuster had 5 catches for 113 yards and a landing (extra on his evening right here).

“JuJu loves to play the game and that’s the part that I appreciate about him,” mentioned Reid. “And he’s really tough and he’s very strong. But he loves to play. And those kinds of guys can hang with me all day. I like that.”

Reid supplied updates on each linebacker Willie Gay Jr. and cornerback Trent McDuffie.
