Stanford Routt says 'no reason to panic' for Chiefs

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Stanford Routt says the Chiefs aren't panicking yet after dropping to 1-3 on the season with a loss to the Chargers.

The Kansas City Chiefs lost again this week, 37-20 to the San Diego Chargers at home, dropping their record to 1-3 on the year. However, cornerback Stanford Routt refused to push the panic button while speaking after the game, saying that the Chiefs still have time to get things together.

Routt, on whether the Chiefs are more talented than their record shows:

"There is no reason to panic, there’s no reason to drop your head. It is a long season – it’s a marathon, not a sprint. We will definitely be seeing them again."

Routt also compared the previous week's performance against the New Orleans Saints versus their performance on Sunday against the Chargers:

"We just have to play better – offense, defense and special teams, plain and simple. I could sit up here and get into X’s and O’s with you, but I’m not. We have to play better football. We are playing bad football – offense, defense and special teams.""

The Chiefs face the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday at 12 p.m. CT.
