The Kansas City Chiefs are seeking a solid bounce-back performance against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday. The Christmas debacle at Arrowhead Stadium has forced the team to reevaluate their discipline regarding playmaking as they can’t afford any more mistakes heading into the postseason.

Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones has heard all the commotion regarding criticism of the coaching staff lately. During his Wednesday press conference, he addressed his thoughts about wanting accountability among the players.

“I think we got to hold ourselves (accountable); the coaches can only do so much. The coaches can only call plays. We have to execute,” said Jones. “The coaches can only call plays right, and we gotta go out there and execute at a high ability as players, so I think more so taking accountability for yourself. Players have to hold each other accountable.”

The Chiefs have suffered through miscues throughout the season and notably had two turnovers in Monday’s loss to the Raiders. Players understand they will be under pressure to get a win in the regular season home finale.
