Week 14: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. For the third time in four games, the Patriots have gone away from the running game and Sony Michel in particular as he now has 10 carries or less in three of his last four contests. What is interesting about this is that the Patriots did not abandon the running game as their running backs ran the ball a total of 27 times last week it was just that James White had 14 of those carries which was the first time that White has had double-digit carries in a game in over a year. While this could be game script dependent as the Patriots fell behind early, it does mark a shift that the Patriots are ultimately looking for playmakers to step up in this offense. The Chiefs rushing defense has been a problem all season. Even in a game that they won 40-7 last week, they allowed Josh Jacobs to rack up 104 yards which was the seventh time that a running back has rushed for 99 yards or more on the season. The issue for the Chiefs is that they are a team designed to stop the pass as they have one of the worst run-stopping front sevens in football as linebackers Anthony Hitchens and Damien Wilson have both struggled with gap discipline and the defensive ends in Frank Clark and Tanoh Kpassagnon specialize in the pass rush. This is a team that on the year has allowed the second-highest yards-per-carry to running backs at 5.1.
