#4. “Don’t Make ’em Famous”
The Kansas City wide recievers are not exactly household names, and their best one — Jeremy Maclin — would not be the top #1 WR on most teams.
The Saints will be out yet another cornerback because of injury, as Sterling Moore will miss today’s contest due to an abdominal injury.
Defensive coordinator Dennis Allen will likely need to use blitz and coverage packages to protect a thin defensive backfield by attempting to pressure the pocket, and hopefully not let the Chief receivers become a factor in the game.
Another player to keep an eye on is rookie WR Tyreek Hill, who has become a ‘break-out” star for the Chiefs this season.
In five games for the Kansas City, Hill’s been targeted 18 times and has 13 receptions for 87 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He’s tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns with tight end Travis Kelce.
But Hill’s biggest impact will likely be in the kick return game, where as the fastest man on the field today (yes, faster than Brandin Cooks) he is always a threat to “take it to the house”.
