Kareem Hunt 1st drive of the 2nd half: 3 carries for 29 yards. Didn't see another carry the rest of the game. That's less than ideal.— Seth Keysor (@RealMNchiefsfan) November 7, 2017
I didn’t realize he didn’t have any touches after that. My first thought was the Chiefs were passing more and they might like Charcandrick West more as a pass blocker and the Chiefs were passing more in the second half of this game. Chiefs assistant head coach Brad Childress was asked about that and here’s what he said.
“Some have to do with protection,” Childress said. “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.”
Still, there’s something not right about Hunt not seeing more touches in the second half. He’s shown he’s a playmaker so he’s one of those guys you might have to force the ball to once in a while. He was shut down in the running game but perhaps he could’ve gotten going in the passing game.
