The Kansas City Chiefs begin their run at a Super Bowl with a preseason bout with the Cincinnati Bengals. The starters are expected to play roughly a quarter tonight, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of storylines and things to monitor. On this week’s game preview edition of the Arrowhead Pride Laboratory, we talked about three things on offense and defense we’re paying attention to.

Bengals OG Trey Hopkins has been used frequently at left guard in 11-on-11 drills at camp. With OG Clint Boling announcing his retirement, Cincinnati has been grabbing for straws on the left side of the line between free agent acquisition John Jerry, 2016 fifth-rounder Christian Westerman, No. 136 overall pick Michael Jordan, and Hopkins. Baby adds Hopkins has taken his reps there the past few days, so it sounds as if he’s in the lead for that starting role. Despite the team’s injury woes at both guard and left tackle (with rookie Jonah Williams likely out for the year), Joe Mixon remains a top-10 option in coach Zac Taylor’s play-action dependent offense.
Speaking Thursday, coach Andy Reid replied, “We’ll do that here,” when asked if he’ll use a RB-by-committee approach this season. “I did a little bit of that back when I was in Philadelphia,” Reid said. ” Kind of a running back by committee deal and we had some success with it. We’ll do that here. … They all have their strengths and we’ll try to exploit their strengths there.” Reid mentioned both Damien and Darrel Williams, Carlos Hyde, and rookie Darwin Thompson all in the same breath. Damien has missed almost all of camp with a strained hamstring but returned to individual drills this week. Hyde has gotten most of the run with the ones in his absence. Damien was a legit RB1 stud down the stretch and into the playoffs last season, but his injury may have spooked Reid. Damien has never been a true workhorse outside of the second half of last season.
I typically favor teams in preseason that have new head coaches because they often want to validate their hiring to the fans and ownership. More times than not, these new coaches are trying to change the culture of their teams and thus, winning games – any games – is important. Tonight, that theory applies to Zac Taylor, who takes over for Marvin Lewis in Cincinnati. Plenty of pundits questioned the hire of Taylor, who has limited coaching experience as a whole, including zero experience as a head coach. While Andy Reid and his staff tries to work on smaller details and figure out which players will provide needed depth at the bottom of their roster, I could see Taylor and his Bengals trying to win the game tonight. Thus, I’ll take the points.
The Cincinnati Bengals will be moving along with a new coach for the first time since 2003, and so you’ll have to excuse their fans if they need a little re-adjustment. But they do hope that the change will bring something fresh and new, such as an actual playoff win. Let’s see what Zac Taylor can do.
It would be hard to improve upon what the Kansas City Chiefs were able to do last year, unless they can achieve a Super Bowl championship in Patrick Mahomes’ second year as the starting quarterback. But that’s often a tough step to take, especially when you got a team like the Patriots to overcome.
