The upcoming matchup this Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles is an essential test for the Kansas City Chiefs to start the regular season’s second half. The two top teams in their respective conferences entering Week 11 following their Super Bowl LVII game last season will have all eyes on Arrowhead Stadium.
Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones has been one of the leaders on a much-improved defense as the team managed to produce a 7-2 record. The All-Pro gave his assessment of the unit and the chatter about it being the best the franchise has seen in recent years during Thursday’s press conference.
“Oh, overall, I still think we can get so much better. So far, so good. As the best overall defense? I mean, it’s still halfway through the season for me to say that now only end up at that last…doesn’t even matter.” said Jones, “So then we take it one game at a time and continue to get better. And then you asked me this question at the end of the year. I have an answer for you.”
The praise hasn’t gotten to Jones’ head as he continues to push for better from his unit. The second half of the season will feature notoriously potent offenses, and they will be tested immediately this Monday against the Eagles.
