It’s got to be frustrating to gameplan against the Kansas City Chiefs. Just when you think you’ve got them figured out, there is a new wrinkle added that takes you unaware. That was the case when the Chiefs dialed up Albert Wilson on a direct snap punt fake earlier this year. The Falcons must still be reeling from this game.
Wilson wouldn’t normally be considered a big play threat like others on this list. However, the Chiefs do seem to like getting him isolated in certain situations. The young wide receiver does have some quality speed that has shown up in a number of big plays in his career. Being a forgotten player like he is can often lead to him being left alone as the defense focuses elsewhere.
However, it is this fake punt that really has to turn heads. In fact, it exemplifies exactly what I was just talking about. If Tyreek Hill lines up in that spot, everyone takes notice and is prepared. Yet when it is Albert Wilson, he is able to get ten yards downfield before anyone even realizes he has the ball. That is big.
Why should the New England Patriots be worried about the Kansas City Chiefs? Because the Chiefs have playmakers all over the field. This team is a threat to score at any point in the game. It is incredibly difficult to gameplan for a team with that kind of talent. When you can’t point to any one player as a guy to stop, it is extremely difficult for an opponent. The Chiefs are a real threat to unseat the Patriots as kings of the AFC this year.
