News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 3): West is going to be signed again by the Chiefs and could push his way to the #2 role because of his experience in the offense.
General News (Mon Dec 3): is expected to sign an undisclosed contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in the near future, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Week 14: vs Baltimore Ravens
FBG says: Bad matchup. In the first game without Kareem Hunt, the Chiefs had a split carry backfield with Spencer Ware touching the ball 14 times and Damien Williams with 7 touches. Ware struggled to consistently move the ball which could have played a factor in the team going out and signing Charcandrick West this week who already knows the offense and could play a third-down role this week. This is a rushing unit that is going to be looked upon to be a complementary role to what will evolve into an even more pass-heavy offense this week. The Chiefs have an above average offensive line (ranked 10th by Matt Bitonti) and should gain some cohesion with Matt Morse back for the first time last week after suffering a concussion earlier this season. The Ravens run defense is one of the best as they are allowing just 65 yards per game to opposing running backs which is the second best in the NFL this season. On the season, the Ravens have allowed just one running back to rush for over 100 yards and only two running backs to rush for more than 65 yards. Simply put this is a unit that has no holes in it as the defensive line is made to stop the run as C.J. Moseley and Patrick Onwuasor are run stopping specialists who are able to roam free without having to shed blockers due to the strong play of the defensive line.
