Latavius Murray

The Kansas City Chiefs have given up the No. 7 most yards to the run by any defense this year. Currently, they have allowed teams to rush for a total of 1,669 yards in 14 games. That averages out to teams rushing 128.4 yards per game.

Because of where the strength of their line lies, the Saints are going to need to run the ball more north to south than they are going to need to bounce it to the outside and go up the sideline. When they need a pounding presence, they turn to Latavius Murray.

For the Saints to have a shot at this game, Murray is going to have to get at least 15-16 carries. The last time his carries were that high, Murray ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in the Saints Week 12 win.

Kamara is still going to need to get carries and catch passes out of the backfield. I am not saying get rid of Kamara, but the Saints are going to need to run Murray to not only open up lanes for Kamara but also for Thomas and Sanders in the passing game.
