Kansas City Chiefs free safety Eric Barry will the rest of the season with a torn Achille’s Tendon. That has to be the first thing mentioned, before even the team’ outstanding victory on the road against the New England Patriots, or the tremendous individual performances of rookie running back Kareem Hunt, and quarterback Alex Smith.
Eric Barry is one of the best safeties in the NFL. For reference, he shut down Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in week one. That was just another day at the office for Mr. Berry.
Starting strong safety Ron Parker has bee shifted to the free safety position, and nickled linebacker Daniel Sorenson has been elevated to the strong safety spot. The Chiefs signed free agent safety Steven Terrell to take Berry’s spot on the roster. Most of Berry’s responsibilities in pass coverage will fall to nickelback Phillip Gaines.
Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt had a record setting debut in weel one, dominating both on the ground, and as a receiver. Chiefs week two opponent, The Philadelphia Eagles, might have the best defensive lines in all of football. That is a claim not even a Boston native would utter about the Patriots. Eagles defensive tackles Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan are legitimate starts, and they will make it more difficult to the run the football.
If the Chiefs are successful on the ground, it will be because of center Mitch Morse. He was the best offensive lineman in week one. If he has another strong performance against the Eagles, he will be in the conversation for best center in the AFC.
The Eagles number one cornerback Ronald Darby is injured and will not play in this game. This leaves the Eagles ill-equipped to counter the speed of Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. This game already loomed as a prime orputiniyu for Chiefs tight tend Travis Kelce. Young Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz faces a dominant Chiefs defense led by stars Derrick Johnson, Justin Houston, and Marcus Peters. Final Score: Chiefs 27, Eagles 17
