The Kansas City Chiefs defense had itself a day. The defense has been holding back for the past week as practice sessions were not yet “live”. That changed today, and the defense responded accordingly, looking very impressive across the board.
The defensive star of the day was Justin March (not surprising) who delivered a number of hard hits and showed a penchant for diagnosing plays and disrupting them early on. March especially excelled in the goal line simulation part of practice where he blew up a couple of plays against the first team offense.
Marcus Peters had an interception for the defense…because he is Marcus Peters, and that is just what Marcus Peters does. I’m not sure that I can break it down any more than that. He’s really good.
Another young player who made his presence felt today was Rakim Nunez-Roaches, the Chiefs 6th round pick in 2015. He made a number of stops today and was incredibly pumped up on the field. His performance today is probably a good indicator of why the Chiefs felt comfortable in releasing Alameda Ta’amu.
