I was high on Hunt in my drafts, even taking him over Demarco, Lynch, Ajayi, and he indeed looked great, but last night’s production was as much due to him as it was the Pats D and Andy Reid’s ability to put his talent in the best position to succeed.
Butler’s massive PI literally handed Hunt a goal line TD for his first.
The 2nd receiving TD was on a seam route to the inside with linebacker coverage where he had huge separation.
The 3rd being a 4 yd goal line carry to the outside with a dive to the pylon where he just out ran the edge at the line of scrimmage. KC played to the outside of the box with screens, end arounds, outside zones with Hunt and Hill early in the game where NE’s DEs were literally getting pancaked and just took advantage of their speed to catch the edge and get downfield. After Hightower came out due to his knee, KC started running inside a bit more.
Gillmore and Butler did well in coverage but KC basically schemed them out of the game. It should be interesting to watch them play the Chargers and their quick edge rushers in week 3.
