The Kansas City Chiefs Can Cover And The Defense Is Dangerous

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs had the league’s best offense but the team was undone by a defense that couldn’t get a stop. That led to an overhaul of the Kansas City defensive structure. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was replaced by Steve Spagnuolo and a number of additions were made on that side of the ball. Frank Clark and Alex Okafor were brought in on the edge. Bashaud Breeland and Tyrann Mathieu were added to the secondary in free agency and safety Juan Thornhill was selected in the second round of the draft.

Those moves completely reshaped the Chiefs’ defense and the results on the field have followed. The 2018 Chiefs were 26th in DVOA. That came with a wide split between the pass defense (12th) and a league-worst run defense by a mile (the gap between Kansas City and the next-worst run defense was about the same between that team and the one ranked 21st).
