2. L'Jarius Sneed and Trent McDuffie BOTH Named NFL All-Pro Cornerbacks

What Sneed and McDuffie are doing this season is nothing short of spectacular.

They've joined forces to give the Chiefs the best secondary in the NFL, smothering star wide receivers every week as Kansas City ranks second in opponent points per game (15.9).

It's difficult to pick just one to honor, so I think the NFL voters will give them both an All-Pro nod. They're both deserving of first team honors, and their complementary skillset allows Steve Spagnuolo to deploy them in a variety of ways.

Sneed is allowing a 50% completion percentage with six deflected passes, three QB hits and three pressures with the fourth-most tackles on the Chiefs (41).

McDuffie, meanwhile is second in tackles (51) with five quarterback hits, six pressures, four forced fumbles, and one legendary play that'll live on forever in Chiefs' lore.

I gave McDuffie the nod as my midseason MVP, but there's a compelling case for Sneed too.

The Chiefs' defense has no weakness, which allows these star corners to fly all over the field and focus on their strengths. Opponents should be terrified of the Chiefs and the All-Pro voters will rightly decorate the defense with Kansas City players.

These stars aren't the only Chiefs defenders who will produce big numbers and I've got a stat prediction on the final page.
