Analysts celebrated the Chiefs’ defense for most of the 2023. But cracks began to emerge as we saw in their defeat against Green Bay. The offense wasn’t the problem in this game as Mahomes put up decent yardage. However, the defense began to creak under pressure because they’ve been compensating for the offense.
Everybody knows that defense wins championships. It’s the wrong time of the year for them to have a complete meltdown so this is something the Chiefs must fix quickly. If they keep their defense ship-shape they may be able to bluff their way to Las Vegas. But they’ve got no chance without it (via SBNation).
