Kansas City Chiefs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Game Ball: Entire Chiefs’ Defense

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs rolled into and over the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday in Jacksonville. The offense of the Chiefs looked shaky and at times didn’t look up to par, gaining less than 300 total yards on the game, but the Chiefs’ defense absolutely dominated the Jaguars’ offense.

Any time your defense scores more than the opponent’s offense, the defense should get the game ball. So to me the game ball goes to the entire Chiefs’ defense.

The Chiefs’ defense shut out the Jaguars and the only points the Jaguars got were on a blocked punt for a safety. The Chiefs had six sacks on the game with three by Justin Houston, one by Tyson Jackson, 1.5 by Dontari Poe, and .5 by Eric Berry.

The defense of the Chiefs gave up less than 200 total yards causing the Jags to have an average yard per play of 2.5.

The defense also caused two turnovers, both of which were interceptions by Blaine Gabbert. One of those picks were returned for a touchdown by Tamba Hali. So in reality it was Chiefs’ defense 7, Jaguars 2.

If you really want to give it to one person on the Chiefs’ defense it comes down to either Houston, who dominated and had three sacks, or to Poe, who had 1.5 sacks and also dominated the line of scrimmage sometimes taking up three blockers and letting Derrick Johnson lead the team in tackles.

Either way, hats go off to the Chiefs’ defense. I cant wait to see what they do next week.
