Week 15: vs Los Angeles Chargers
All TE vs LAC
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Chiefs passing offense has been all over the place this season, but in their first meeting, the Chargers got the most of Alex Smith and the passing game holding the Chiefs to just 155 yards passing. A big reason for this was the ability to take Travis Kelce out of the game holding him to just one reception for one yard in week three. Smith and company will need to get Kelce more involved this week as they kept him in to help block more than he has all season and potentially for good reason as Alex Smith was sacked five times in these two teams first meetings.
The Chargers pass defense continues to be one of the top units in football on the season as they are led by elite cornerbacks Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams. Over the last five games, the Chargers have allowed just 208 yards passing which is the fifth best in football and just four passing touchdowns which is tied for the best in football. This is a unit that is built at all levels to defend the pass whether it is pass rushers Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa or safeties Trae Boston and Jahleel Addae this is a tremendous unit that has the opportunity to once again cause issues for the Chiefs as we saw earlier this season.
