Prior to Sunday, Sean Smith was PFF’s No. 8 overall corner. Your guess is as good as mine.

Last year, he was burned more often—on a weekly basis—than church candles. This offseason, he posed for a mugshot. This preseason, he practiced with second-stringers.

This regular season, he’s Kansas City’s best cornerback.

Football: where logic goes to die.
