The Kansas City Chiefs offense has racked up 625 yards on 131 plays in the first two games of the season and put up 27 points in the process. They’ve averaged 4.8 yards per play and have compiled 43 first downs on the season. In the air, they’ve thrown for 425 yards and on the ground, they’ve run for 200 yards. Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon talked about what it means to go up against the Chiefs offense.
“They’ve got a lot of weapons on offense. They’ve got (Anthony) Fasano, he was here my rookie year. They’ve got (Dwayne) Bowe, Jamaal Charles, don’t know if he’s going to play or not, but he’s a weapon as well,” Vernon said. “(Alex) Smith, he’s a pretty good quarterback, he can make plays happen with his arms and with his feet. So we’re in for a test this weekend.”
Cameron Wake says that the Chiefs offense is dynamic and is filled with guys who can plays at any point in the game. That’s why he says the defense will need to be on their toes every single play.
“Dynamic, they have a lot of moving parts, a lot of guys who can make plays, obviously. It’s another challenge for us as a defense in the NFL. That is how it is week in and week out. Again, I don’t know what (Jamaal Charles) situation is whether he can play or not, regardless whoever is back there running the ball he is going to be a NFL caliber running back. It’s not like, oh he is not playing in the game we win, that is not the case. Whoever steps in and takes over is going to be a tremendous athlete who is going to run the ball well and we have to stop them as well.”
The defense has played great in the first two weeks of the season and will look to continue their trend. While the stats don’t necessarily show it, the Dolphins defense were put in many tough positions and were only able to continue their dominance for so long. Hopefully, the offense can hold up their end of the bargain against the Chiefs on Sunday.
