Don’t sleep on Chiefs special teams

The Kansas City defense is what grabs a lot of the headlines for the Chiefs. They rank in the top 10 in 10 different defensive categories. But their special teams have fared pretty well too. They don’t rank nearly as high in certain special teams categories as their defense, but if there is one strength of Kansas City’s unit it’s speed.

“Their coverage teams they’ve got a lot of fast guys, some speed down the field, so we’ll have to deal with that,” said Chris Hogan, who plays on kick coverage and punt coverage. “We’ll have good returns in. A lot of the special teams is execution. So I think our special teams and the guys that we have, our core guys, I think we step up to the challenge when a team like Kansas City which has a good record as a special teams. Whether it’s kickoff return, punt return all that kind of stuff. We’ll have to watch some film and focus in on who their playmakers are and who we need to key on and I’m sure we’ll be able to do that.”
