Evolution of the Chiefs Scheme


I wrote a post back after the Buffalo Bills game discussing the convulated Offensive play calling that our Offensive Leadership has installed. A nice table (me thinks) of what the Chiefs did vs the Bills. As the season has unfolded the Bills look pretty good with wins over us, The Raiders, the Patriots and now the Eagles. Yet, have the Chiefs evolved?

What happened?

Where did the Shotgun go? Seven Shotgun snaps for the entire game and 3 of those were on the 1st Drive. The two Highlited drives are damn good Play calling and play execution.
