The A-team brought a jumbo package to Big O Tires in Kansas City. Herbie Teope, Sam McDowell, Sam Mellinger and Vahe Gregorian joined Blair Kerkhoff for a weekly Facebook Live discussion of the Chiefs.
There was plenty to discuss, from the poor run defense to the lack of success by the passing offense against man coverage.
But the national perspective on the game will focus on the quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, who were selected 10th and 12th in the 2017 NFL Draft and look like future stars. Sunday will mark their first head-to-head meeting.
