They know what the Chiefs do best.

If the Kansas City Chiefs game plan against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is anything like the one they rolled out against the Baltimore Ravens then they shouldn't have to watch much film -- it's going to be run, run, run, The Chiefs ran the ball down the Ravens throats on Sunday but couldn't convert that into more than six points.

I expect them to pass the ball more against the Bucs -- whether that's with Matt Cassel or Brady Quinn -- but the run game is still the bread and butter and some Bucs, like Aqib Talib, are well aware of that fact.

"They pride (themselves) on running the rock," CB Aqib Talib said, via the Tampa Bay Times. "The quarterback doesn't do anything but turn around and hand the ball off in that situation. As long as we knock that run out, we should be all right."

He's right about the run game. If Jamaal Charles is picking up 6, 7 and 8 yards per carry then there's no reason to look to the quarterback.
