When a group ratings 48 points in a win, you generally wind up speaking about their offense after the video game, however in the Chiefs’ 48 -9 triumph over the Raiders on Sunday, it was their defense that stuck out the most.

The Chiefs’ defense created huge play after huge play in the win and everything began on the very first play from skirmish when Mike Hughes got a Josh Jacobs fumble and returned it 23 backyards for a goal and after that, the thrashing was on.

It’s fitting that Kansas City got its very first goal off a turnover, since that wound up being the story of the video game. In general, the Chiefs required an overall of 5 turnovers versus the Raiders and those turnovers would wind up resulting in an overall of 28 points. It was the most turnovers the Chiefs’ defense has actually required in a video game given that2018

The Chiefs required 3 of those 5 turnovers in the very first half, which was a huge reason that Kansas City had the ability to take a 35 -3 lead into intermission.

The Chiefs’ defense has actually been the story of their six-game winning streak. What Kansas City’s defense has actually achieved throughout the streak is absolutely nothing except excellent which’s because throughout the very first 7 weeks of the season, the Chiefs appeared to have among the worst defenses in football.

During the Chiefs’ 3-4 start, the defense gave up more than 400 backyards per video game and just tallied 7 turnovers. Throughout their six-game winning streak, the defense has actually turned up the heat, giving up simply 311.7 lawns per video game while racking up 16 turnovers. The most excellent fact, however, is the reality that nobody has actually had the ability to score on the Chiefs. In their very first 7 video games, the defense quit 29 points per video game, however throughout their six-game winning streak, that number is down to 10.9 points per video game.

The revival of the Chiefs’ season has actually accompanied the revival of their defense. Weekly, the system comes through with huge plays and today was no various. Hughes’ goal, we likewise saw Tyrann Matheiu choose off a pass AND recuperate a fumble. The Chiefs have actually likewise gotten better at getting pressure on the quarterback. Versus the Raiders alone, Kansas City acquired 4 sacks with Alex Okafor offering 1.5 of those.
