The morning after a Chiefs Week 6 victory

SMG Logo By Charles Goldman,Wesley Roesch,John Dillon,Mitch Carney,Talon Graff of SMG | Slide 1 of 5: If you asked someone to describe to you the Kansas City offense in 2018 or even last year, the first thing they'd probably mention is Patrick Mahomes. Then they'd talk about Travis Kelce or Tyreek Hill, then maybe Sammy Watkins and Mecole Hardman. All the way at the end of the conversation you'd probably get to hear about some running backs, but only about how they're utilized in the passing game. Do you know when the last time the Chiefs rushed for over 245 yards? You have to go back to 2012 when Jamaal Charles rushed for 225 yards in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. So to see Kansas City come out with a makeshift offensive line and pound the football against the Bills, well, talk about a shock to the system. The threat of having a potent rushing attack to go along with the Chiefs' deadly passing offense makes this team borderline unstoppable. Teams will have to choose to stack the box and stop the running game or play coverage and stop Mahomes. If the defense can clean up some of their penalty trouble and shut down the opposing running game as they did in Week 6, the rest of the NFL is in for some trouble.
