If the key players for KC remain healthy and productive on defense, the Chiefs will be a tough matchup for all.

 

We must be able to stop the run.  We could not stop the run when we had to last year.

 

I think the running game will be better on offense because the O-line will be better.

 

Our passing game will be mediocre unless one of our WR's not named T Hill, plays much better.

Good summary. I think Logan will improve the run defense. March and Mauga and maybe DJ, too.

Better is a relative term.

 

I think the Chiefs improve in the running game. Hunt is going to add that elusive, patient, Priest Holmes-like runner that the Chiefs need to offset Ware's hammerhead style.

 

In the passing game, I really don't think we'll see a change in production. Hill will get more targets, and I'd imagine Albert Wilson will return to getting the targets he saw in 2015. 

 

Defensively, I think a healthy return of Mauga and the addition of Logan really helps the rush defense. I think the Chiefs could feel the loss of Howard, especially as a guy that could slide down to the nose. They don't really have a guy that can do that otherwise. I don't really see an adequate replacement for DJ yet, but I have at least moderate faith in Wilson that the position doesn't implode.  I don't see a fall-off on D. A healthy Houston improves everything.
