Kansas City Chiefs: The Entire Defense
Let’s be honest, most of Kansas City’s success last year was in spite of the team’s defense. The Chiefs are hoping that bringing in Steve Spagnuolo and switching to a 4-3 scheme will help turn things around quickly. But with a new coordinator, a new scheme, and several significant personnel changes, there are a lot of moving pieces on Kansas City’s defense heading into 2019.
If the Chiefs can just be middle of the pack defensively, they’ll be a contender in the AFC. But if the radical changes the Chiefs made during the off-season don’t work out, their defense could hold them back even more than it did a year ago.
