KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The Chiefs’ defensive end, Frank Clark, openly described the impact of his hamstring injury and two gun-related arrests that kept him away from the field for weeks.
“It hit me real fast,” Clark described how important it was to subdue his emotions to keep him competent in his job.
Clark would need to perform well to help the Kansas Chiefs recover from a 3-4 record, especially since the team’s overall flaw is on the defensive end.
The chiefs only managed to accumulate eight sacks this season, tying themselves with Jacksonville as the fewest in the NFL.
This deficiency was the reason for the repetitive questions asked to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo last week. Spagnuolo needed to strategize a way to keep defensive pressure on the quarterback.
Furthermore, Spagnuolo also expressed the difficulty of performing because of the numerous injuries, leaving the team short-handed on the defensive end.
Spagnuolo would need to fix this defensive issue before the team welcomes the Giants tomorrow. One of the Giants’ best features is their ability to protect the quarterback. Accompanied with Daniel Jones, one of the most promising quarterbacks in the league, defeating the team would be extremely difficult.
Jones and the Giants managed to defeat the Panthers 25-3 through outstanding passing performance, even managing a one-handed catch on a trick play.
Jones also expressed his respect for the Chiefs’ offensive and defensive potential. Jones said that the team performed excellently throughout the years, being guys “that can disrupt the game and who can make big-time plays.”
