Scariest player from the Buffalo Bills – Stefon Diggs
The Buffalo Bills seem to be gaining a little steam in the AFC and have a good chance to win the AFC East in 2020. While they have a ways to go to compete with a team like Kansas City, they’re making strides to try and get there.
One offseason move that moved them in a positive direction was one that should definitely help their offense. This move gives quarterback Josh Allen a true receiving threat.
Over the last five seasons, Stefon Diggs has established himself as a top-flight wide receiver in the league. After back to back 1,000-plus yard receiving seasons, Diggs lands in Buffalo where he’ll be the team’s top receiver.
While Allen has had some accuracy issues, establishing a connection with Diggs could help make him a much better quarterback. Hopefully, that connection won’t be established well by Week 6, when the Chiefs head for Buffalo.
Scariest player from the Miami Dolphins – Emmanuel Ogbah
One team that NFL fans should keep an eye on heading into 2020 is the Miami Dolphins. The team was able to pull in some decent free agents like former-Cowboy cornerback Byron Jones and former-Patriot linebacker Kyle Van Noy.
Add in a few years of drafting players with potential and a quality 2020 draft class, and things could really be looking up in Miami.
When the Chiefs and Dolphins meet in Week 14, an old friend could really make himself known. Defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah seemed to be making a name for himself as a Chief last season before succumbing to a season-ending injury.
He really performed well enough to be re-signed, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Now, Ogbah has the chance to make himself known in Miami, and he could do it against a Kansas City team that he’s pretty familiar with.
Scariest player from the New York Jets – Mekhi Becton
While all signs continue to point to a very dysfunctional team and organization in New York, there are still a few players there that Kansas City will need to be prepared for. One, in particular, enters his first year in the league and could make an immediate impact.
Standing 6’7″ tall and tipping the scales at over 360 pounds, Mekhi Becton is going to be an absolute force to be reckoned with. If Becton turns out to be the player that he has the potential to be, the Chiefs’ defensive line better come ready to play.
This man is like a wall and could very much help one of the more patient and elusive running backs in the league in Le’Veon Bell. Let’s just hope that Becton hasn’t adjusted well enough to the pro game by Week 8 of this season.
Scariest player from the New England Patriots – N’Keal Harry
Without Tom Brady, it’ll be interesting to see if Bill Belichick can have continued success. There’s no question that Belichick will continue to field a formidable defense.
Thankfully, Kansas City’s lethal offense is built break the back of the league’s very best defenses. So, New England will have to find a way to put more points on the board to run with Kansas City.
Those points could come in the form of getting the ball to second-year wide receiver N’Keal Harry. If the Patriots’ offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, is able to get the 2015 version of Cam Newton on the field, a strong connection between Newton and Harry could be scary.
McDaniels is smart enough to find ways to exploit the Chiefs’ younger cornerbacks. If he does, the 6’4″, 225-pound Harry could have a field day in Kansas City in Week 4.
