to our YouTube channel here.Welcome back to chiefStats Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , the place where we cover five statistical topics regarding the Chiefs upcoming game.Last week, we talked about what happens to teams playing their first game with an interim coach. We learned the first game for an interim coach typically is a blowout (by either team), and thats exactly what the Chiefs did to the Browns last week.This week the Chiefs are facing the Cardinals, and here is their overview:1. Chiefs defense has to improveEvery Chiefs fan wants the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, and thats why Im choosing to focus on defensive improvement through the season.In the past 10 seasons, the majority of teams who have won the Super Bowl have had a top-10 defense.Super Bowl Winning DefensesYearTeamDefensive PPG RankYearTeamDefensive PPG RankObviously, the Chiefs have a great offense and they may not necessarily need the best defense in the NFL to win a Super Bowl in 2018.However, it will only help the Chiefs chances of going the distance if they can continue to improve on the defensive side of the ball.The Chiefs defense currently has allowed the 19th most points per game (25.1). We want to watch that ranking drop, and we want to watch the Chiefs defense continuously allow fewer and fewer points over the course of the season.Lets see how the defense is progressing thus far:As the season has progressed, the Chiefs defense has consistently improved except for games against the Steelers and Patriots which is pretty understandable.This is exactly the kind of improvement we need to see from the Chiefs defense if they are to maximize their chances of making a deep run in the playoffs.Fortunately for the Chiefs, the Cardinals offense should give them an opportunity to continue their improvement.2. Cardinals offense is offensiveLike the title suggests, the Cardinals offense is not having a good year. Here are a list of items in which the Cardinals offense is ranked in the bottom five of the league:31st - yards/play (4.3)32nd - first downs (110)31st - passing yards/game (165.8)31st - TD% (2.8)29th - INT% (4.0)31st - yards/pass attempt (5.9)32nd - yards/rush attempt (3.4)As you can see the Cardinals have been very, very poor offensively so far in 2018. This is borne out even further when you look at the Cardinals offensive efficiency metrics (taken from Bill Connellys advanced stats guide).If the Chiefs defense gives up a ton of points to this Cardinals offense Armani Watts Jersey , I will be incredibly disappointed, and the Chiefs will have lost a great opportunity to continue to build momentum on the defensive side of the ball.3. Checking in on Josh RosenSometimes, when teams with a young quarterback struggle, its not necessarily all on the quarterback think the Colts.So far in 2018, Rosen is responsible for the following stats (keep in mind I didnt include the game where Rosen came in for an injured Sam Bradford):55.6 Cmp%207.2 yards/start1 TD/start1 INT/start69.9 passer ratingThe only quarterbacks with a worse rating so far in 2018 are Sam Darnold (68.3) and Josh Allen (61.Cool. Needless to say, Rosen is part of the problem on the Cardinals offense and I doubt hell like playing in Arrowhead for the first time.4. Defense - not a problemThe Cardinals defense has not been as much of a problem for them this season. Below is a defensive overview for the Cardinals:8th - yards/play (5.3)16th - Takeaways (12)7th - first downs allowed (95)16th - yards/pass attempt (7.5)12th - passer rating allowed (91.2)7th - pass yards/game (224.6)15th - yards/rush attempt (4.3)17th - points/game allowed (24.9)Id describe the Cardinals defense as slightly above average, particularly in the important yards-per-play stat.I think the Cardinals would likely give up fewer points per game if their offense was capable of putting together more drives. It looks to me as though the Cardinals defense is better than their points-per-game totals would suggestthe issue is an offensive unit that doesnt give much relief to their defense.Complimentary team football is huge in the NFL, and it looks like the Cardinals offense is bringing their defense down too. Thats bad.5. Cardinals pass rushLooking at the numbers, the Cardinals front seven is their clear strength particularly their pass rush.So far on the season the Cardinals have the fifth-highest defensive sack percentage in the NFL (8.4).On the other side of the ball, the Chiefs come into the game with the fourth-best sack percentage allowed (3.6).So for this game, the Cardinals strength will be going against one of the many Chiefs strengths. One of the goals for the Chiefs offense will be to keep Patrick Mahomes off the ground.Chandler Jones leads the Cardinals in sacks with 6.5 on the season. Interestingly enough, no one else on the Cardinals defense has more than two sacks on the year. Essentially, the Cardinals have a number of guys who can rush the passer Dorian ODaniel Jersey , but they also arent going to dominate the game.Mahomes ability to maneuver in the pocket could be a big deal on Sunday. Im looking forward to it!Dee Ford: I think were going to shock a lot of people On May 8, 2014, Kansas City Chiefs fans were looking for a wide receiver in the 2014 NFL Draft.Or a safety.Or an offensive lineman.Or a cornerback.The Chiefs already had Justin Houston and Tamba Hali.No fans were thinking about the Chiefs drafting a pass rusher and if they were, there was one name that wasnt passing their lips.But Dee Ford was the name the commissioner spoke that night, as the Chiefs picked Ford a defensive end from Auburn with the 23rd selection in the first round.I remember seeing video from the Chiefs draft party at Arrowhead Stadium.The room went completely quiet when Fords name was announced.Few fans understood the move, and fewer still had even heard of Ford.But Chiefs GM John Dorsey was convinced, telling reporters that he believed the Chiefs had drafted the second-best pass rusher available after Jadeveon Clowney, whom the Houston Texans had picked with the first overall pick.If you watch the national championship game against Florida State, if you watch him against Texas A&M, even if you watch him in the Senior Bowl, the way he dominated people in the Senior Bowl, hes got a unique trait, Dorsey said that night. Not only is it speed Derrick Nnadi Jersey , but what the great pass rushers have is they have this strong interior hip, when they start leaning to the quarterback, he doesnt lose his balance and he continues to drive forward and that, to me, is a very rare trait.Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesWith Justin Houston and Tamba Hali on the team, there was little opportunity for Ford to see the field.And when he did, sometimes things didnt go well.There was that viral video of Ford appearing to run away from San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore one that now, years later, still seems to define him in the eyes of some Chiefs fans.But hey... Ford got national exposure for it.Unfortunately, it was on a CMon, Man! segment on ESPN.None of that was fair to the rookie linebacker.But NFL players arent always treated fairly, and there was nothing to do but keep going forward.Late in 2015, Ford got the chance to start.In his second game as a starter a pivotal game against the San Diego Chargers at Arrowhead Ford exploded for three sacks and seven tackles Breeland Speaks Jersey , and he broke up a pass from Philip Rivers to Danny Woodhead in the end zone on the last play of the game.The play saved the game and possibly the entire Chiefs season.In case you dont remember, this was the season the Chiefs started 1-5, and needed to win 10 straight games to make the playoffs.If Ford hadnt made that play, the Chiefs first playoff victory since 1993 probably wouldnt have happened.The following season, Ford started 14 games and began to make an impact, recording 10 sacks.It gave fans some hope that Ford might finally be maturing into the player they would expect to get from the drafts first round.But six games into the 2017 season, Ford had to step off the field, as a nagging and painful back injury required surgery to correct.Even worse, the circumstances of the situation required that the Chiefs pick up the fifth year of Fords contract.So now, the pressure is on for Ford.And through two games, he has been one of the bright spots of a Chiefs defense that could use some.In an analysis of the Chiefs victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Pro Football Focus laid out the case.Speaking to reporters on Monday, a clearly relaxed and confident Ford said that hes excited to return to Arrowhead Stadium to play the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday.Im really looking forward to it Patrick Mahomes Jersey , he said. Itll be pretty emotional to me because the last home game that I was at, I was on the sideline because I had just gotten the second back surgery. To be here now healthy once again will be very emotional for me. Im excited.Head coach Andy Reid said Ford is completely ready to go this season.He has a full grasp of the defense, and hes healthy. Hes been nicked up here and there in years past. He feels good right now, and hes moving fast. We saw that during camp. Hes in phenomenal shape. Hes done a good job with that. His strength is up. Most of all, hes healthy. Hes able to get out there every day.Ford said it had been a difficult trip back from the injury.It feels good. It was a long road to get back and Im still getting better but for the human being part, the wellness part, its good to be out there healthy. And now its good to get out there and sharpen the iron and get better each week.Ford is aware that his defensive unit is under intense scrutiny after giving up so many yards (and points) in the seasons first two games, but he remains confident.We can be very good. Its funny to hear people talk about the yardage were giving up and all that. Were a very new defense, and were making some really big plays out on the field, and we understand were not even scratching the surface of how good we can be. Its very early. Were just going to continue to get better, and I think were going to shock a lot of people.
