Andy Reid’s play calling with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce is a lot of fun for the Chiefs

Andy Reid is a creative play caller and the Kansas City Chiefs have two of the most creative players in the league in Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. You can do a lot with both of those guys and the Chiefs have been doing a lot with them.

Let’s check out a couple of plays as highlighted by Brian Baldinger on Twitter. This first one shows the respect that a defensive back has to give Tyreek Hill on a screen and how the Chiefs capitalized on that with Kelce. Tyreek falls back for the screen and the defensive back on that side of the field has to go cover him because Tyreek with the ball in his hand and space ahead of him is dangerous. So the Patriots defender does that which opens a hole for Kelce, who is very difficult to cover one-on-one, on that side of the field. Pitch and catch even against one of the best safeties in the league in Devin McCourty.

This second one is all about Tyreek. The Chiefs line up in a bunch on the right side of the formation and run almost a rub route out of it to get Tyreek sprinting with space ahead of him. (This route reminds me of Peyton Manning killing the Chiefs)
