The Kansas City Chiefs are susceptible to being beaten at the second level by the Eagles’ passing attack.

Jalen has had two more weeks to heal. Let’s hope that the throwing shoulder is ready to go.

How about a big day for Dallas Godert, Zach Pascal, and, dare we say, one of those young tight ends that we aren’t discussing? We’d enjoy that, wouldn’t we? Well, here’s the good news. It could happen! Check out what Conner said about the Chiefs passing defense.

M.C. – The Chiefs have been soft in the middle of their defense all season, and smart opponents have taken advantage of that. Nick Bolton is a plus asset but gets turned around in coverage often and will allow the easy completion. Willie Gay can get it done but is often hurt.

Behind them, the team’s linebackers are better when they are playing down in the box and even when K.C. has assigned extra safeties, they have given up the middle of the field far too often.

Sometimes a team should just take what the opponent is giving them, and versus the Chiefs, it’s often easy completions in the second level that beat them.

That one sounds like a plan to us! We’ll see if the Birds utilize this strategy.
