Q: Kareem Hunt played about 53% of the snaps in the game yesterday. What are some of the factors that go into deciding how you rotate those running backs?
CHILDRESS: “Some have to do with protection. Some have to do with freshness between him and Charcandrick (West). Some guys take a better look at plays than others. They’ve all got their little niche that we try to fit them into.”
Midseason MVP: The Chiefs would be lost without quarterback Alex Smith, who is on pace to set personal single-season bests for, among other things, touchdown passes and yardage. The Chiefs have surrounded Smith with the best supporting cast he’s had since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, and Smith has responded by playing so well that he’s not only the Chiefs’ MVP, but a strong candidate for the league-wide award. Running back Kareem Hunt and linebacker Justin Houston would be worthy candidates if Smith wasn’t so far ahead of the field.
“I got that from Andy Reid,” Rams coach Sean McVay said via Peter King of The MMQB. “Opening night, Kansas City at New England.”
The play was Kareem Hunt’s 78-yard touchdown catch. It had Tyreek Hill coming in motion, faking the give to him to draw the safety in and then throwing it to Hunt down the middle.
“KC ran it the first game of the season,” Goff said via The MMQB. “That was straight from them. But you saw how well it fit what we do. They’ve got players like we have.”
“It ain’t like there’s a magical potion,” Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy said on slowing Hunt, later adding, “It’s not so much that teams have adjusted to him. This is the NFL.”
White, 5-11, 193 pounds, has played in 11 games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2016-17) and compiled 11 tackles (10 solo), three passes defensed and one interception. He did not see game action with the Chiefs this season. White was originally selected by Kansas City in the sixth round (178th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Nothing brings out competitiveness like playing for your job. After the Chiefs selected Patrick Mahomes with the 10th overall pick, Alex Smith is playing the best football of his career. He has seven top-12 weeks and ranks second in adjusted completion percentage (79.6 percent).
“That’s when they started saying the background of who they were. Chris Smith of the former Chiefs. And then Sean Bledsoe was a former college basketball player. They found this great service to call Medicare patients,” Bennett said.
