3. Isiah Pacheco - RB
KC Kingdom's "Entertainer of the Year" lived up to that moniker last night, rushing for 89 yards on 19 carries against an Eagles defense that was surrendering less than four yards per carry going into the game.
It was a spectacular outing for Pacheco, who has quickly become one of the league's best running backs in his second season.
The 2022 seventh-round pick is fifth amongst all RBs in broken tackles (12) AND fifth in rushing yards before contact (437), creating a deadly combination of factors that give the Chiefs a huge potential edge while the passing game struggles.
This Chiefs team, at this juncture, is best when it leans on the defense and Pacheco. We don't need Patrick Mahomes to be superman to win this year, and Pacheco is a massive reason why.
With the offense looking for its identity, I think the answer lies in the explosive hands of Mr. Pacheco.
