RB Jamaal Charles has been the Kansas City Chiefs’ focal point on offense. 

The undefeated Kansas City Chiefs sit atop the AFC West, undefeated and unparalleled. Their defense is stalwart, and their offense simply gets the job done.

Their defense is powered by their pass rush. Thus far, the Chiefs have totaled 35.0 sacks. The Chiefs are a nightmare for opposing offensive lines and quarterbacks, and have been wreaking havoc all season.

The Chiefs have not lost a game thus far, but last week, they barely snuck past the struggling Houston Texans. It is certainly possible to beat the rugged Chiefs.

KC utilizes man coverage frequently, and the draw play neutralizes their defensive scheme. With their backs away from the line of scrimmage, the offensive line blocks like a pass, but the running back powers forward. Once he’s past the down linemen, he will gain sufficient yardage every draw.

If a team can successfully run the draw play five or more times in a game, the Chiefs’ defense will have to revert to a zone defense, and the pass rush is striped down.

The draw play will dismantle the Chiefs when they suffer their first loss, whenever it be. If the offensive line can execute their blocks, the Chiefs will have defensive issues.
