Second Toughest Running Back in 2016 – Le’Veon Bell
Originally I wanted to put Le’Veon Bell as the toughest running back for the Kansas City Chiefs to go up against in 2016, but he didn’t have the best 2015 campaign.
Bell only ended up playing in six games last season. He was suspended at the beginning of the year, and then ended up injuring himself in the later part of the season.

Bell has experienced a lot of success as a starting running back in the NFL though. He ran for 1,361 yards during his sophomore season in 2014 and found the end zone eight times.
Last year was a step down, as Bell only rushed for 556 yards and three touchdowns.
Bell should have a better season in 2016, and the Pittsburgh Steelers should continue to be a tough opponent for Kansas City. The two will meet in week four of the regular season, and it’ll be primetime football on Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
The home crowd atmosphere for a night game should give Bell and the black and gold the upper hand in week four. Hopefully the KC Chiefs will find a way to slow Bell down. He rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown during their matchup last year.
