Chiefs will get their first look at Joey Bosa against Chargers

The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t get a look at Joey Bosa in their first game with the San Diego Chargers because he was holding out. Bosa is back after posting an impressive rookie season after missing the first three games of the year. He has 9.5 sacks and looks to be worth every bit of the third overall pick the Chargers gave up for him.

“Yeah, it looks like he’s a really good player,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He has the sacks, the numbers there. The thing he does is he’s going to give you an honest down every snap. So, there’s no downs off. He’s going to push it – run, pass, it doesn’t matter. The sacks get all the accolades there. His game overall- he’s going to come at you every snap.”

He has 5.5 sacks in his last five games. I haven’t watched a ton of San Diego this year but you can see flashes of what Reid is talking about even if you watch just a little bit of Bosa. He’s a high-effort dude who has got to be a pain in the ass to block.

The Chiefs offensive line has faced plenty of good edge rushers and held their own lately. Now they face one coming from the inside. Likewise, San Diego will get a good look at the Chiefs own interior pass rusher - Chris Jones.
