The Chiefs were on the wrong end of numerous dropped passes on Monday night against the Eagles. One specifically noteworthy drop came off the hands of wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling on a potential go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Valdes-Scantling was seen understandably slamming his helmet in frustration after the drop, and on Tuesday, he took to social media to send a message.
“I’m grateful, I’ll be better. And I appreciate the criticism and the support. God put this on me because he knew I could handle it. Gratitude for everything that comes with it,” Valdes-Scantling posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Valdes-Scantling had a tough night overall, failing to haul in any of the three targets that came his way. The Chiefs were led in receiving by fellow wideout Justin Watson, who caught 5-of-11 targets for 53 yards and one touchdown.
