What the Chiefs strong run defense means, and more

In Episode 8 of the Chief in the North, we look back to Saturday's game against the Bengals. After Re-watching the game several times, I give my opinion on multiple aspects of the offense and defense, including:

The starting defensive line's solid performance, in particular Bennie Logan.

The strong run defense against a tough Cincinnati team and what that might mean for the 2017 season.

The Chiefs plethora of options at the running back position, notably Kareem Hunt.

Dee Ford's performance at ROLB against the Bengals, particularly as a pass rusher.

Tanoh Kpassagnon's improvement as an edge rusher from preseason game 1 to preseason game 2.

Phillip Gaines and the Chiefs; corners outside of Marcus Peters.

The first string and backup offensive lines.

And of course, Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes. (starting at 33:00 minutes)
