KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When Andy Reid was looking for a new offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs two years ago, he found much to like in his quarterbacks coach, Matt Nagy.

“Matt’s got a nice feel for the game,” Reid said then in promoting Nagy. “He was a player, obviously, in the Arena League. And then we brought him on board. Some guys have a knack for it and he’s one of those guys. I’ve noticed with his participation that he’s got a pretty good grasp of the offense and defenses in this league. I think that presents a nice addition to that position.”

Nagy worked out well enough in his two seasons as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator that others around the league started to notice. He was hired on Monday by the Chicago Bears as their new head coach.

Though just 39, Nagy has a lot of football on his résumé. He was a quarterback in college at Delaware and for six seasons in the Arena Football League. He worked his way up Reid’s staff, starting as a coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 and later moving with him to the Chiefs as quarterbacks coach in 2013.

But his work with Alex Smith and the Chiefs’ other quarterbacks is what earned Nagy the promotion to offensive coordinator in 2016. The Bears were looking for a coach to work with their young quarterback, Mitch Trubisky.

“You have to be able to teach the offense to the quarterback after coach installs the plays,” Nagy said of his role in teaching QBs. “You need to be able to take that play that they’re installing and you become a teacher in your classroom. When we’re in here, I need to be my best at giving them another set of eyes to see the field, another perspective. I was fortunate enough to play the quarterback position really all my life.”

Smith, 33, had the best season of his career in 2017, setting personal records for touchdown passes (26) and yards (4,042). He was the NFL’s highest-rated passer (104.7). The Chiefs, meanwhile, went from 20th in total offense in 2016 to fifth this season.

With the Chiefs struggling on offense during this season, Reid made Nagy the primary offensive playcaller. The Chiefs, who had scored 19 points total in the two previous weeks, scored 31 in Nagy’s first game, against the Jets, and at least 26 in each of the four remaining regular-season games.

Running back Kareem Hunt had his busiest three-game stretch of the season late in the year with Nagy calling plays. Hunt rushed 78 times for 362 yards and three touchdowns in victories over the Raiders, Chargers and Dolphins.

But the Chiefs were shut out in the second half of their most important game of the season, Saturday’s playoff loss to the Titans. Any kind of score would have won the game for the Chiefs, who instead lost by one point.

Given his background, Nagy will presumably call the offensive plays as head coach for the Bears. That’s a big ask for a guy who 10 years ago was still a quarterback in the Arena League.

Nagy will handle it well if he develops as a head coach as well as he did as a quarterbacks teacher and offensive coordinator.

Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott

ARLINGTON, Texas — Running back Ezekiel Elliott returned Sunday, but the Dallas Cowboys’ season ended anyway.

The Cowboys lost to the Seattle Seahawks 21-12, bringing to a close any playoff possibilities with their Week 17 finale against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday left to play.

“It’s really disappointing,” tight end Jason Witten said. “We had a chance and fought there at the end. It’s not overly complicated. Opportunities in this league are fleeting. You have to take advantage of them when you can. We just weren’t able to do that well enough.”

Sunday started well enough for the Cowboys, with the Detroit Lions losing to the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons losing to the New Orleans Saints. It could have been made even better if not for the Carolina Panthers’ last-minute victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But all of it meant nothing because the Dallas offense failed to score a touchdown for the fourth time this season. Quarterback Dak Prescott was intercepted twice and saw a pick returned for a touchdown for the fourth time this season when Justin Coleman came away with an errant dump-off to Elliott on the Cowboys’ second play of the second half.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant, meanwhile, had perhaps his lowest moment with the Cowboys (8-7), dropping a first-quarter pass, fumbling a second-quarter reception and dropping a third-quarter dump-down.

Bryant’s fumble was turned into Seattle’s first touchdown, and his drop in the third quarter led to the Seahawks’ third. In the first half, two special-teams penalties negated great field position, and a Geoff Swaim crackback penalty turned a third-and-2 into third-and-15, forcing the Cowboys to take a Dan Bailey field goal.

The Cowboys did what they wanted to do running the ball. Elliott finished with 97 yards on 24 carries in his first game since Nov. 5 because of a six-game suspension.

But they have only themselves to blame for not going to him more.

Dallas’ most egregious error came in the fourth quarter. Trailing by 9 points, the Cowboys were at the Seattle 3 with less than eight minutes to play. With the entire AT&T Stadium crowd crying for an Elliott handoff, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan instead called a pass that resulted in Prescott scrambling for 1 yard. On second-and-goal, Linehan called for Prescott to sprint out to the right, eschewing Elliott once again, and Witten was called for holding.

Prescott was sacked for an 11-yard loss on the next snap, and the Cowboys were ultimately forced to settle for another Bailey field-goal attempt from 34 yards. For the first time since 2014, Bailey missed between 30-39 yards when he pushed his kick right.

Elliott’s seven rushing touchdowns were good enough to be tied for fifth in the NFL entering Week 16, despite missing six games. He had 15 rushing touchdowns as a rookie in 2016.

But Linehan failed to go to him when it mattered most.

After the game, Jason Garrett said Prescott had a run/pass option on first down and chose to go with the pass based on Seattle’s defense. “When you look back on those plays and they don’t work out, it’s very easy to do that,” Garrett said of the second-guessing. “Again, I think we are one of the better red zone teams in the league. Running the ball has been a part of it, the run/pass options have been a part of it and then throwing the ball. In that particular case, it didn’t work out well for us. … Obviously, Zeke is a very good player. We like him and we give him plenty of opportunities. In that particular case, it didn’t work out for us and that was a big part of the game.”

Elliott did not second-guess the playcalling. “They coach and I play,” he said.

That missed opportunity effectively ended the Cowboys’ chances of making the playoffs and ended their season, although Bailey missed another attempt with a minute to play that would have cut Seattle’s lead to 6 points.

There is one game left to play, but the ramifications will be for jobs on this team or another for players and coaches in 2018.

The Cowboys can look back at the Seattle loss as a crusher, but their season was put in a bind with Elliott’s suspension. The team’s losing streak in the first three games without their star running back effectively ended it. Sunday just made it final.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers

One 40-point game can do wonders for your scoring average. In one fell swoop Thursday night the Steelers went from 20th in the NFL in scoring up to 13th. It was the long-awaited breakout game for the Steelers, and the players said afterward they hoped it would be the start of a new trend.

But is their 22.7 points-per-game average enough to win a Super Bowl? History suggests it would be difficult, although not impossible, to accomplish. In fact, if the Steelers maintain their current pace (22.7 points per game) and standing in the league (13th) and went on to win the Super Bowl, they would be one of the worst offenses in NFL history to raise the Lombardi trophy.

Coincidentally, the 2008 Steelers are the worst scoring offense to win a Super Bowl. The 2008 Steelers ranked 20th in the NFL in scoring, averaging 21.7 points per game. That Steelers team narrowly beats out the 2015 Denver Broncos, who were 19th in the league in scoring, averaging 22.2 points per game.

Since the 1970 merger, only the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (18th), 1990 N.Y. Giants (15th), 2007 Giants (14th), and 2000 Baltimore Ravens (14th) won the Super Bowl with offenses ranked lower than 13th in the league.

Not so coincidentally, many of those teams are regarded as some of the best defenses of all time, including the 2000 Ravens, the 2008 Steelers and the 2002 Buccaneers. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was a young assistant on the Buccaneers staff and was the head coach of the Steelers six years later.

It certainly helps matters if you’re powered by the No. 1 defense in the league. That’s what the 2000 Ravens, 2002 Buccaneers, 2008 Steelers and 1990 Giants were.

The 2008 Steelers are an interesting comparison for this Steelers team. They endured similar struggles with their offense. They scored 14 points or fewer six times. There was a 15-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, a 21-14 home loss to the Giants and a 31-14 shellacking in Tennessee two weeks before the playoffs began.

They still managed to go 12-4 and earned a first-round playoff bye, mostly because they held nine opponents to 15 points or fewer.

This Steelers team has held eight of the first 10 opponents to 18 points or fewer. Sure, it has endured a 30-9 home loss to Jacksonville and a 23-20 overtime loss in Chicago, plus a couple of uninspiring wins over hapless teams such as the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.

But it’s quite possible in February fans will look back on the losses to the Jaguars and Bears with an inquisitive: ‘What the heck happened there?’ followed by a dismissive: ‘Who cares? When’s the parade?’

It’s true the NFL has veered more toward offense in recent years with the New England Patriots serving as the poster child. But they’ve never won a Super Bowl with the league’s No. 1 scoring offense. They have won twice with the league’s top scoring defense, including last season.

In the first 51 Super Bowls the league’s top defense was victorious 15 times, or 29.4 percent of the time. A top-five scoring defense won it 31 times, or 60.7 percent of the time.

Contrast that to the number of times the No. 1 scoring offense has won the Super Bowl. That’s happened 10 times, most recently in 2009 when the New Orleans Saints did it.

There certainly have been a few outlier teams over the years that defied the odds. The 2007 Giants are probably the most notable because they are the only team to win a Super Bowl without a top-10 offense or defense. They were 14th in points scored and 17th in points allowed.

But for the most part, NFL history suggests teams better have either a dominant offense or a dominant defense to win championships. And unless more 40-point games are in the Steelers’ future, it’s the defense that will be doing all the heavy lifting.

The 6-2 Kansas City Chiefs travel to AT&T Stadium on Sunday to take on the 4-3 Dallas Cowboys.

The line is a pick’em, which means neither team is favored, while the Over-Under is 51.5 points, up sharply from an open of 48.5. Uncertainty around the availability of Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has led to wild odds swings already.

Before you make any bets on Chiefs-Cowboys, you’ll want to see what SportsLine’s advanced computer model is picking.

It’s been crushing football. The model went an amazing 174-80-2 on straight-up NFL picks last season — better than all 98 experts tracked by NFLPickWatch. SportsLine computer picks also would have won over 96 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool Manager leagues that made straight-up picks last season.

The model is fresh off a 12-1 straight-up week. It called every game correctly, including the Bills stomping the Raiders and these same Cowboys beating the Redskins.

Now, the model has examined every match-up, every player, and every trend in Cowboys-Chiefs and locked in picks on the side and Over-Under.

The model knows the Cowboys may be without Elliott, who is third in the NFL with 690 rushing yards. It’s a big blow to an offense that ranks fifth with 28.3 points per game. And even if Zeke does play, missed practice time and legal distractions could hurt his productivity.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, meanwhile, is coming off a clunker against the division-rival Redskins. Although the Cowboys won, Prescott was held below 150 yards passing and didn’t throw a TD.

But just because the Cowboys could struggle offensively doesn’t mean they won’t beat the Chiefs, especially at home.

SportsLine’s model says if Elliott does sit, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden will combine to rumble for over 100 yards and a TD.

And Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has had issues of his own lately. He hasn’t scored since Week 3 and has been held under 100 yards each of the last three games. SportsLine’s projection model says he’ll make it four in a row against Dallas and will only rush for 80 yards.

We can tell you the model is loving Under 51.5. In fact, the Under hits in 60 percent of simulations.

But what about the side? The model says one team wins well over 50 percent of the time. And you can only go to SportsLine to see which one it is.

So what side of Chiefs-Cowboys should you take? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong winner of Chiefs-Cowboys, all from the model that crushed the NFL last week, and find out.
