2010 Next-Level Awards: Speed Rush: Kansas City Chiefs

2

The Kansas City Chiefs’ defense can give all the love to Romeo. Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel brought about big change in his first season with the team. In 2009, the Chiefs were the second-worst team in the NFL when bringing pass pressure with one or more defensive backs. Kansas City’s opponents' passer rating with secondary pressure was 101.9, worst in the AFC. This season, the Chiefs set the standard in this area, topping the league across the board when blitzing. One reason may be the addition of strong safety Eric Berry, the fifth pick in the 2010 draft. Berry started every game for the Chiefs, picking up four interceptions and 3½ tackles for loss (each led the team by a defensive back). Another reason may be the excellent coverage of cornerback Brandon Carr, who led the NFL with 19 passes defended, as scouted by ESPN Stats & Information. (Gameplan for the Ravens?)
