    Bengals D adjustment

    Just what was the D adjustment that the Bengals made that put Mahomes into the worst funk of his career?

    They started dropping 8 and we’re still getting pressure with 3 (three). That’s the power of having a good defensive line. The Ravens couldn’t even get pressure blitzing 6-7.

    Mahomes either played his worst half football in the NFL, or I think we will probably hear about an injury that happened during the game. Good effort by the Bengals obviously, but every play seemed like a poor or rushed throw by Mahomes, not necessarily that the defense was playing amazing.

    I hate that kind of analysis. Really short changes the mind that put work into making Mahomes actually play bad. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/w...fc-title-game/

    Over on the Chiefs forums they're complaining that the way to attack these kind of looks is to simply run the ball....

    There is a very nice analysis on the KC Star:

    https://www.kansascity.com/sports/nf...257888543.html

    The gist is what other posters said above: 1) Bengals dropping 8 in coverage almost in half of all plays in the second half; 2) Andy Reid refusing to run the ball, which would be the perfect antidote to that.

    In addition to dropping 8, one of the 8 was a spy to keep Mahomes from scrambling, something the Bills didn't do. You can see the effect of it on the last play of regulation when Mahomes fumbled (while being tackled by the spy).

    Give credit to the Bengals, they knew Reid doesn't believe in running the ball and they exploited it.

    I would say though that the Bengals scheme would not have worked to the extent it did had Mahomes not become rattled as he did. This is very unusual for a QB of his stature.

    Chiefs have a lot to fix for next season, because you know that everyone and their brother will copy the Bengals game plan. It's a copy-cat league.

    Mahomes chocked plain and simple. The whole momentum changed on his first interception where he was picked off by the Dlineman. That wasn’t some scheme. Complete downhill from there.

    If Lamar did the same thing half the board giving props to the Cincy D would be blaming Lamar for the loss.
