Number One: Contain Tyreek Hill
One of the most important players on the Kansas City Chiefs is their speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill. H
ill, 26, is hands down the fastest and one of the most agile athletes in the NFL right now and the New Orleans Saints need to find a way to contain him if they plan on leaving the dome with a win on Sunday.
One way the Saints could attempt to contain him is keeping a safety on Hill’s side of the field to help double cover him and avoid torching the defense with deep downfield receptions.
Patrick Mahomes is known for his powerful throwing arm and loves to take deep shots early and often and the Saints need to recognize his strengths and play according to them.
Marcus Williams has been playing well recently and is probably the best coverage safety the Saints have and will need to be alert for Tyreek Hill all game. If Hill can sneak behind the secondary it’s already a lost cause.
The Saints do have home-field advantage for this one, so at least they have that to look forward to. If the Saints can limit the number of deep balls Mahomes attempts to Hill, the Saints will have a good shot at winning this football game.
