Kadarius Toney Earned The Worst Grade For A Wide Receiver In Five Years vs Lions

It was a historically bad performance for Kadarius Toney.

During the Chiefs, 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney had one of the worst performances you’ll ever see from a wide receiver. Toney had three costly drops, one of which went into the arms of Lions rookie safety Brian Branch for a pick-six:

Toney also had a drop on a critical 3rd down in the red zone that force the Chiefs to settle for a field goal. Then, on the Chiefs’ final drive, Toney dropped an easy pass that would have put the Chiefs in position to potentially kick a game-winning field goal. Kansas City wound up turning the ball over on downs, and the Lions melted the clock to pull off the upset.

The disastrous performance earned Toney with a grade of 29.7 which is the worst single-game grade for a wide receiver in five years:

KC desperately need their receivers to step up in the absence of Travis Kelce, who missed the game due to a knee injury. Toney himself had just one reception for one yard, and Marques Valdes-Scantling led the team in receiving with only 48 yards on two catches.

The Chiefs will try to avoid starting the season 0-2 for the first time since 2014 when they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday.
