When I think of the standout moments of Rodney Hudson’s 2014 season, two plays come to mind.

First, De’Anthony Thomas’ touchdown versus San Francisco, in which Hudson prevented Chris Culliver and Patrick Willis from touching No. 13.

The second effort dates back to Jamaal Charles’ record-breaking run at San Diego.

Hudson chipped two defenders (who would’ve otherwise been in position to make the tackle) and then bulldozed Marcus Gilchrist, creating a freshly paved path for his ankle-breaking halfback.

The veteran has allowed the fewest sacks (zero), hits (one, tied) and hurries (four) among Kansas City’s starters.
