Is stopping Charles the key to stopping the Chiefs?

    So far this year Charles has touched the ball on 1 out of every 4 plays. He leads the team in receptions with 35.

    I think taking Charles out of the game is the key for us. We need to spy him with Brown all day long. We need to have our DEs nail him when he tries to release out of the backfield. Force Smith to beat us throwing to his mediocre WRs and TEs. Don't let Charles beat you. I would love to see Pollard get a clean shot on Charles early in the game.

    Like most teams play the Titans, we'll load up to stop Charles and for Smith to beat us with his arm.

    Yes. If we limit Charles, we'll likely limit their offense.

    I think that if we score more points than the Chiefs we should win the game

    I dunno, I'm skeptical your game plan will work. Anyone know what our record is when we outscore our opponent?

    Gotta be a site with stats for this kind of thing. Maybe someone with Excel skills could put something together to break it down.

    I watch just about every Chiefs game since my parents are Chiefs fans. Charles is very good, but the Chiefs run blocking this year isn't too great. I think the key to winning this game is pressure on Alex Smith.

    The Chiefs game comes down to our offense. If we do not turn it over, we will have a chance. If we turn it over we will lose. Nothing really to do with Charles or Smith if you ask me. We stopped Rivers and Gates (SOMEHOW) besides a few drives and really limited Houston for the most part. Chiefs have a puffy record because of schedule. ESPN and others tried to make the Eagles a top 5 team. Now they are in the bottom 4th of 32 teams. Giants and Jags both winless. Dallas only quality win and well SD just beat them.

    So its up to our offense to hang on to the ball and no dumb turnovers and its scaring me to death because Harvard likes to turn it over

    Terrible idea. Why change now? We should be 4-0. We have played the tougher schedule. We are at home. Stupid to change now. Be smart with ball, and play balls out on defense

    Wow that went totally over your head you literally have to score at least 1 more point to win.
