Week 7: vs Cincinnati Bengals
All RB vs CIN
FBG says: Good matchup. In the Chiefs' mile-a-minute offense, Kareem Hunt continues to fly under the radar. Patrick Mahomes is hogging the headlines, and rightfully so, but Hunt has picked up where he left off last year as a talented, productive runner. And he's been especially great over the last three weeks, posting 288 yards over 51 attempts (a 5.65 average) and scoring twice. An instinctive, one-cut runner, Hunt is custom-built for the Chiefs' zone-blocking attack; he's adept at identifying the ideal gap and erupting through it. Last week, he embarrassed the Patriots by routinely bouncing off one blocker's hip and into open space. With defenses preoccupied by the Kansas City pass game, it looks as though those gaps will remain present and open. Hunt's usage isn't always clear in the week-to-week gameplan, but his efficiency is trending way upward.
The Bengals run defense remains one of the league's weaker units. They flash from time to time, especially up front, where nose tackle Andrew Billings has been an underrated cog. But poor angles and missed tackles continue to hamper the second level, as seen last Sunday, when Pittsburgh's James Conner rumbled for 111 yards and 2 scores on just 19 attempts. Even top linebacker Vontaze Burfict looked rough last week, misplaying a handful of tackles. There simply isn't enough foot-speed and dynamism in pursuit to make up for miscues. That's the main reason they've allowed running backs to average a wild 4.84 yards per carry thus far.
