Brandon Carr gets some attention- NFP Sunday Blitz *Brandon Flowers(notes) gets most of the attention among the Chiefs’ cornerbacks. But the guy playing across from him on the right side quietly has done an outstanding job this season and helped position the Chiefs for a playoff run. Opponents have thrown at Brandon Carr(notes) 90 times this season—only five corners in the league have seen more throws, according to STATS. Yet Carr has a "burns per target" ratio of 40.0—which is third best in the NFL behind only Darrelle Revis(notes) of the Jets and Stanford Routt(notes) of the Raiders. What’s more, Carr has 18 passes defensed—second most in the NFL. "I had a bitter taste in my mouth from the way I played last year," Carr told the NFP Sunday Blitz. "This year, I wanted to get my hands on a ball or two week in, week out. They say third year is the make or break year. I think I’ve progressed as a corner." Carr said he has been targeted so frequently because teams don’t want to challenge Flowers. That’s fine with him. The Chiefs play man-to-man about 90 percent of the snaps, and the defense plays into Carr’s strengths. "I like to use my size and speed, and get my hands on receivers," Carr said.
