2. Chiefs Running Backs
Jamaal Charles emerged last season as the Chiefs’ biggest playmaker on offense but touched the ball just 15 times last week. He was an effective on the ground against the Bills but had just ten carries as the Chiefs went away from their running game. Will they commit to keeping the ball in his hands this week, even if the Lions start to build a lead? The Lions will also have to look out for speedster Dexter McCluster, especially in the passing game. The Lions did a nice job of covering screen passes last week and need to continue their swarming style of tackling. Containing Charles and McCluster early will be a good sign.
