10 players under most pressure for NFL’s final quarter

Sunday’s narrow win over the hapless Raiders proved one thing. These Chiefs are going to be tested more than ever before. Now that Kareem Hunt is no longer a member of the team, the onus is going to be on Kansas City’s rushing attack to provide some balance for Patrick Mahomes on offense. That’s only magnified by just how bad the Chiefs’ defense has been this season.

In his first post-Hunt start this past week, Ware gained just 47 yards on 14 attempts. This came against a Raiders defense that was yielding nearly five yards per attempt heading into Week 13. The good news? Ware has some track record of success. He put up nearly 1,400 total yards back in 2016, the year before Kansas City selected Hunt.
