Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid have seen growth from Chiefs’ wide receivers

The Kansas City Chiefs will welcome the Philadelphia Eagles to Arrowhead Stadium in this week’s edition of “Monday Night Football.” The Week 11 showdown is likely the NFL’s most anticipated game since the same two teams faced off in Arizona in Super Bowl LVII.

One obstacle that could keep the Chiefs from successfully defending their recent Super Bowl title is a thus far underwhelming wide receiver corps. No Chiefs’ wideout accumulated 400 receiving yards in the season’s first half. Rookie Rashee Rice leads the room with 32 catches for 378 yards and four touchdowns.

Speaking on Thursday before the Chiefs’ first practice following their Week 10 bye, head coach Andy Reid insisted that the team’s receivers are improving, even if the results aren’t apparent.

“[The wide receivers] are getting better as we go,” the coach stated. “I know it’s hard to see, but they’re getting better. We’ll just see how it goes going forward. Anything I say isn’t going to mean anything unless they can continue to improve. We’re seeing improvement. We just have to keep it going
