2. Tyreek Hill vs William Jackson
Is anyone else concerned that Tyreek Hill will break some sort of receiving record in this game? Though the Chiefs’ superstar lines up all over the field, he does most of his damage on the perimeter.
William Jackson has consistently lined up against opposing team’s No. 1 wideouts (Kendall Fuller is largely tasked with covering the slot), and he hasn’t been able to stop anybody so far.
Through five games, Jackson owns a paltry 48.8 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus. He also has the most penalties (five) of any defender in the NFL and has shown zero chemistry with Landon Collins and Bobby McCain.
Assuming those issues weren’t solved in practice this week, Hill could have a field day against Jackson and the rest of Washington’s secondary. The All-Pro receiver was held in check vs Buffalo (seven catches for 63 yards on 13 targets), so he’s due for a blow-up game.
While Hill might not go off for 11 catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns like he did against the Eagles in Week 4, he seems like a surefire bet to compile at least 100 receiving yards and a score against Jackson, who’s seemingly given up more big-play touchdowns than he has pass breakups this year.
Oh yeah, the Cheetah needs just two touchdowns to tie Jamaal Charles for the third most total touchdowns in Chiefs franchise history at 64. You better believe Hill will look to achieve that milestone on Sunday.
