Kansas City Chiefs Team Stats 2019 Chiefs Snaps

0-0, 0 AFC West

vs LAC

6:00 pm GMT, 12/29

Kansas City put up lethal offensive numbers, but had trouble stopping opposing teams. There are some question marks with Tyreek Hill, but the offense will largely be the same team it was last year. Damien Williams opens up as the team's starting running back, and he played well during the last few games of the season. Kansas City made some moves on the defensive side, but we have to see if they are going to be enough. The Chiefs have established themselves as one of the best teams in the league, but now have the hype that they need to back up heading into 2019.

Chiefs are Young and Fast

Will The Run Game Survive Without Kareem Hunt?

While we did see Damien Williams thrive in the latter stages of the season, Kareem Hunt brought a dynamic running attack to Kansas City in addition to the lethal passing game. Andy Reid has had a lot of success with running backs and especially with them being viable in the passing game. Williams showed his worth in both, and the Chiefs are going to stick with him as the top running back heading into 2019. They did sign Carlos Hyde to a short term deal, which will likely mean he will see some time behind Williams. The KC rushing attack was solid, although it did take a backseat to the passing attack. Rushing for over 100 yards per game still shouldn't be a problem for this offense.

Is KC's Offense Going To Finish First?

The Chiefs scored 35.3 points per game over 2018, which ranked first in the league. Patrick Mahomes turned in a stellar season tossing 50 touchdowns, and the only thing that really held them back was defense. Overall the Chiefs are in prime contention to get back to the number one spot again. Tyreek Hill is still dealing with legal issues, but the Chiefs should have enough to keep going. Everyone can continue to scream regression, but the Chiefs have one of the best play-callers and teams in the league. While they may not finish first again, it would be a shocker for the Chiefs to fall out of the top five in points per game. Look for them at the top of many standings.

Can The Defense Get Back To Relevance?

While the defense wasn't totally blame trying to keep offenses in check, they were not at the level they were in prior seasons. Kansas City ranked 24th in points per game allowed, and struggled to get things going for most of the year. You can chalk some of it up to being on the field a lot due to the offense scoring quickly and games turning into shootouts. But for the most part they made an effort to sign players that can complete their turnaround on the defensive side. Before they were an opportunistic defense that thrived on turnovers. That might not be the defensive game plan if they are looking for more consistency. We should expect the Chiefs offense to at least be league average. It would be a surprise to see them jump forward.
