Marquez Valdes-Scantling Drop Eagles Chiefs

WATCH: Marquez Valdes-Scantling dooms Chiefs with dropped touchdown late in the 4th quarter

Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling cost the Kansas City Chiefs with a huge mistake late

Valdes-Scantling and the Chiefs were down 21-17 to the Eagles with just under two minutes left in the game. Kansas City had the ball on a 2nd-and-10 from their own 49 yard line and Patrick Mahomes threw a bomb to his wide receiver Valdes-Scantling, who had Bradley Roby beat like a drum in man coverage.

The pass from Mahomes led Valdes-Scantling into the end zone and all things considered, it was fucking beautiful. A completion would have given the Chiefs the lead late in the game but instead, the football bounced off Valdes-Scantling’s hands and fell to the ground incomplete.

That was pretty much the final nail in the coffin for the Kansas City Chiefs. Again, a touchdown would have given them the lead but following the drop, Mahomes was called for an intentional grounding on the next play followed by another incompletion on 4th-and-25 as the Eagles secured a 21-17 victory.

Valdes-Scantling has built quite the reputation in dropping passes but he’s not the only one. In fact, drops in general have been a massive problem for the Chiefs’ offense throughout the season. 

As a team, Kansas City holds a league-worst 26 drops, six more than the next closest team (Jets – 20). Valdes-Scantling finished the game without a catch and wasn’t too happy entering the locker room after the loss.
