In their defeat of the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs had to pull out everything in their bag of tricks.
This included a long-term defensive move, which was seemingly developed back in early December.
Here is the most interesting point to me
Chris Jones told us in the production meetings that the first matchup during the regular season they purposefully didn’t move him around, planning to do it when they played again in the playoffs and they would move him around https://t.co/SFv9F3cN3C

Chris Jones didn’t move around much in the Chiefs’ meeting with the Bengals on December 4, which could have been a contributing factor in their eventual loss.
In that game, Jones was a non-factor, and Joe Burrow had a lot of time to think and work within the pocket.
That was not the case on Sunday.
Jones had three sacks and was causing all sorts of havoc for the Bengals offensive line, which was incredibly banged-up.
Will Jones and the Chiefs be able to have the same success against the Philadelphia Eagles?
The Eagles offensive line has been continually ranked as the league’s best, at least by Pro Football Focus.
They are led by Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, and Jack Driscoll.
Each of these players is in the top ten in the league at their respective positions and should provide a tough test for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
However, if there is anyone that can break through a staunch line, it would be Jones.
Jones is a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, as his elite play has been recognized around the entire league.
