The Kansas City Chiefs have found themselves in the AFC Championship Game for the second year in a row. A major part of that success is the passing offense. Where superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes slings the ball all over the field, to a number of star targets like Tyreek Hill.
Many believe Hill is the fastest player in the NFL. There is a ton of evidence pointing towards that fact as well, this is not just a baseless claim. His speed makes him one of the most dangerous receivers in the NFL. At any moment, he can burn a defense for a massive touchdown. He isn't the only one of the offense that can do that though.
And it's led to Hill believing in his team. He claims that ‘nobody in the NFL can guard' the Kansas City receivers.
“I feel like nobody in the NFL can guard any of us, and that's no disrespect to nobody,” Tyreek Hill said, via Kevin Patra of NFL.com,. “That's just the confidence that I got in myself and the wideouts I've got around me, including the tight ends and the running backs. I feel like no DB unit, no secondary unit, no linebacker, any defense can guard any of us. So man-to-man is just easy for us to beat. If you just allow us to run through zones, it's even easier.”
That's a bold claim, but also one that the Chiefs can back up pretty well. There is a reason they are considered the most unstoppable offense in the league by many. Let's look at the players. We've already touched on Hill. Then there is Sammy Watkins, who is another great receiving threat. He can burn a defense at any time, you can never sleep on him and he is also incredibly fast.
Mecole Hardman is a burner too, averaging a ridiculous 20.7 yards per reception in the regular season. Demarcus Robinson is great depth and can hurt defenses in a number of ways as well. Oh, and then there is superstar tight end Travis Kelce, who gives headaches to opponents on a weekly basis.
Saying ‘no one' can guard a team like Tyreek Hill did is a heavy statement and isn't one that is easy to back up. The Chiefs come about as close to that as possible to doing it.
