Perhaps there is not just one reason but too many to mention, at least for public consumption.

Fact is, the numbers speak for themselves, beginning with the final score: The Kansas City Chiefs staged a comeback for the ages, rallying from an 18-point deficit in the third quarter for an improbable 27-24 victory in overtime before a stunned sellout crowd of 72,226 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

I'm sure the 0-16 Lions didn't offer excuses either.

They don't need to give excuses. Anyone with a seeing eye dog can see this team has no heart, no desire and no pride.
