Week 16 GDT - The Flippers

Recommended Posts

No sacks for the Chiefs against a team that won't make the playoffs. This is not good.

Chiefs Oline protected Alex Smith well, only giving up 1 sack.

4 of the top 5 tacklers for KC are DB's. What does that say about the defense? Chiefs front 7 were MIA. (minus Ragland who led KC in tackles with 5, 4solo.

Well the Dolphins ran the ball 14 times and threw it 38 times (19 completions). So that kind of makes sense.

However, according to nfl.com, what you say isn't true.

Ragland and Sorensen had four total tackles

Nelson and Parker had three.

Bailey, DJ, Jones, Logan, Murray, Peters all had two.

So that means that 5 DBs and 5 front seven guys were leading the team. They make up 26 of the 30 total tackles. Which the rest are one by Houston, RNR, Revis, Zombo. That also doesn't hold up your statement.

I went off ESPN box score. If the sack totals are correct,  i'll assume the tackle box score is too.

We spend probably around 85% of the time with 5 or 6 DB’s on the field so I can see why that happened.

Usually that drives me crazy, but the Dolphins don’t use much 2 back or even use their TE that often so it worked out that way this game.

Maybe even 7 or 8 like he did against Oakland in Oakland and other times?

I wonder if ESPN includes special teams tackles and NFL does not. Seems strange to be off by 9 tackles.
