Marrone was amazed at what he’s seen from the second-year quarterback, running back Kareem Hunt, receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson and De’Anthony Thomas, and tight end Travis Kelce. The speed, improvisation, big plays, variety of formations and motions, disguises and misdirections …nfl cheap jerseys nike
“What you’re seeing is it’s kind of — it’s unbelievable,” Marrone said. “We’ve got our hands full.”
The Chiefs (4-0) lead the NFL in scoring (36.3 points per game) and pass plays of 25 or more yards (15). In addition to having a league-high 14 TD passes and no interceptions, Mahomes has a big arm and a knack for extending plays and making tough throws while scrambling. Hill is one of the NFL’s fastest players and a dangerous open-field runner.
No team has yet been able to contain the Chiefs’ offense, but if there is a defense that can it’s the Jaguars. They have the corners to match up with the Chiefs’ receivers. They have a safety who’s already proved he can handle an elite tight end. They have speed at linebacker to deal with the backs. And they have a defensive line that brings pressure off the edge and penetration up the middle.

“If I’m a betting man, I’m taking this defense, no matter who we’re playing against, no matter who’s at quarterback,” safety Tashaun Gipson said. “We’ve shown that no matter who’s on offense, we’ve got the guys over here to do it. This is something that we’re built for. We’re built on speed, we’re built on toughness, and we’re built on just that fire and passion.
“I guess we’re going to have a good outing come Sunday. It’s going to be an exciting opportunity.”
Expect Gipson to be matched up with Kelce a fair amount. He drew a similar assignment when the Jaguars played New England and helped limit Rob Gronkowski to just two catches for 15 yards in Jacksonville’s 31-20 victory.
