The Chiefs defense is another reason the team has earned only one win this season. The Chiefs defense has had to go through defending a short field due to offensive turnovers. However, they've had issues of their own at times.
The defense has improved in the last couple of games, but they are still suffering the repercussions from giving up 75 points to open up the season.
Solution: Add pressure on opposing quarterbacks
The Chiefs have already started doing this now that Hali and Houston are working together as the primary starters. Last year, Houston started the season late and made some impressions before the conclusion of the season. Now, the Chiefs have outside linebackers from opposite sides of the defense attacking opposing quarterbacks.
Last week against the Baltimore Ravens, quarterback Joe Flacco was taken down four times as Hali and Houston each took him down twice for a sack.
If the Chiefs defense keeps this up, it could create low-scoring matches for the Chiefs, unless their offense improves in scoring.
