Gunn's bullet points: Run game doesn't show up, but secondary does

My bullet points following the Eagles' 27-20 loss to Kansas City:

• You cannot, I repeat, you cannot have your QB throwing the ball 50 times a game and not expect something bad to happen. Sure enough, a Carson Wentz pass deflects off Chiefs LB Justin Houston teammate Chris Jones picks it off. It sets up the Chiefs' go-ahead score, and that's your ball game.

• Kudos to the Eagles' front seven. They handcuffed the Chiefs' run game. The stats say Kansas City ran for 112 yards, but 53 of those came on one run by Kareem Hunt. Brandon Graham told me in the locker room, "We did everything we wanted to do against their run game but one time we're out of position, they hit us for a home run."

• After carrying the ball 14 times for 46 yards last week against the Redskins, LeGarrette Blount against the Chiefs had zero carries and only one touch for zero yards. When asked about being invisible in this game, he kept saying time and time again, "That's how the game went." When he was asked when was the last time he had zero carries in a game he said, "I can't remember."

• Kudos to the Eagles' patched-up secondary. No Ronald Darby, and Jaylen Watkins and Rodney McLeod left early with injuries. Yet the Birds didn't let Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill burn them deep. Hill had just four catches for 43 yards. Mychal Kendricks said, "I'm proud of how those guys held up back there."
