Check out the horrible numbers in the run stopping department. Dead last. This means instead of having Deuce check out after picking up 6 yards maybe he will actually stay in the game. Nah! Makes too much sense.

The Chiefs stuff the middle as much as they run it up there themselves. Fortunately, they aren't very good at it.

Also good news is that they aren't very good at stopping the pass either. The Saints offense should have a field day against these guys on Sunday.
