The Kansas City Chiefs are thin at wide receiver. Meanwhile, the Eagles field an exceptional secondary.

This one has been discussed often. This is one of those matchups where we’re uber-confident that the Eagles can take advantage. Darius Slay, James Bradberry, and Avonte Maddox are the best cornerback trio in the game. Yep, we said it, but their jobs get much easier if important pieces are missing in the wide receiver corps (or if guys are banged up).

That may be the scenario on Sunday. Here’s a take from the other sideline as Conner, again, agrees that K.C.’s issues at wideout could pose problems for them.

M.C. – The Chiefs are getting healthier as the week goes on at a number of positions, but it’s hard for anyone in the Kingdom to feel good about the wide receiver position. They stumbled into the conference championship. They will be banged up this weekend.

Mecole Hardman is already out. Kadarius Toney and JuJu Smith-Schuster are already among the walking wounded. The Eagles should challenge Chiefs WRs at the line and keep things physical for 60 minutes.

Again, we like the theory. Let’s talk about the Chiefs’ running game.
