Kansas City Chiefs: Is The Defense For Real?
The Kansas City Chiefs‘ defense was nothing short of dominant in their regular season opener on Sunday. In their pummeling of the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only points allowed by KC were from a punt block resulting in a safety. Almost half of the mere 178 total yards the Jags offense managed came during garbage time when the game was well out of hand.
It has been a long time since the Chiefs’ D has looked as good as they did in Week 1, and people who have been following KC would probably like more than one game of evidence before they proclaim the longtime weakness as a strength.
Naysayers would probably like to see how they fare against better competition as well. Jacksonville has done next to nothing to improve the 2-14 squad from last season and is expected to compete for a top draft pick yet again in 2013.
Yes, it was one game against a bad team, but I believe this defense is legit. They played great in the preseason and almost always got the better of the Chiefs’ offense in training camp. The team is full of gifted playmakers with four returning Pro Bowl selections from last season. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s job is to turn this underachieving crew of individual talent into a cohesive unit, and so far it seems he is doing just that.
Obviously Kansas City won’t be as dominant as they were with the Jags week in and week out, but they did what great defenses do to bad offenses — they controlled them completely. With several great playmakers and a much better quarterback, the Dallas Cowboys will be a significantly bigger challenge when they come to Arrowhead in Week 2.
I think the Chiefs’ defense will be up for it. While they likely won’t win the battle as flawlessly as they did against the Jaguars, I do believe they’ll get the better of the Cowboy’s offense.
