2. Red Zone
Convert! Convert! Convert!
The Chiefs are struggling scoring touchdowns in the red zone through two games, a trend that may be more disturbing than anything else. Covert in the red zone and the Chiefs beat Denver. Convert in the red zone and the Chiefs beat Tennessee.
Establishing the run in the red zone is going to be key for the Chiefs to right the ship. Too many times did the Chiefs try to pass their way into the end zone than trying to power their way through. A better run game will set up the play action stuff Reid loves to run so much. But when opponents know you’re never going to run the ball it takes away from the value of the play fake.
Anthony Sherman may be the key guy here in all of this. He’s very good run blocking a clearing a path for the running back. That should be enough to aid an interior line that features a rookie and a guy off the street. Getting Sherman more snaps in the red zone may be enough for the Chiefs to turn field goal attempts in to touchdowns.
