Continue to Utilize the Running Game
The Green Bay Packers have allowed an average of 331.8 yards per game 115 of those yards came from rushing the football. The Kansas City Chiefs offense is averaging 412.9 yards, 116.8 yards coming from running the football. A key to a Chiefs victory is utilizing the offensive line built to block and run the football. Darrel Williams has stepped up in a big way after the knee injury of starting running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Another bright spot in the rushing attack is Derrick Gore.
Derrick Gore is an agile, physical running back. In 2021 Gore has rushed 11 times for 48 yards and a touchdown. He is averaging 4.4 yards per attempt. The stats do not do him justice for visually seeing him run the football. He runs with his head up and finds holes created by his offensive lineman. The 27-year-old running is playing in his first season with the Chiefs. Gore was an undrafted free agent from UL Monroe.
The Kansas City Chiefs could display their high-powered offense if they complement running the football to their passing attack.
