Two of Kansas City’s second-year players are pleased with the early success of the team’s defense.

An NFL team possessing a quarterback like the Kansas City Chiefs’ reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes will always tend to be regarded as one that features a high-octane offense.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The special teams coordinator says the team has plenty of ways it could go for the all-important role.

Discussing the players on the Kansas City Chiefs’ lengthy injury list ahead of Chicago Bears’ week, head coach Andy Reid noted that wide receiver Richie James is the only one in danger of missing extended time. One of the major issues of James being sidelined with an MCL issue is that he serves the club as its kick and punt returners.

As in previous years, defenses are selling out to stop Kansas City’s deep passing attack.
