Chiefs squeak by Jags; how to hold up in Carolina

On this episode of the Roughing the Kicker podcast, Joshua Brisco breaks down the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and previews Sunday’s game between the Chiefs and the Carolina Panthers.

The Chiefs’ quarterback controversy died an appropriately bloody death against the Jaguars, but will the return of Alex Smith be enough for the offense to rebound before heading to Carolina?

Dee Ford is third in the NFL in sacks. Is his growth legitimate? Where does he go from here, and what happens when Justin Houston returns?

Steven Nelson and Ramik Wilson have grown to be quiet stars at the core of the Chiefs’ young defense. How far can the D carry the 2016 Chiefs?

What can we really learn from the win against the Jaguars, and what will it take to beat the Panthers on Sunday?

All of that and much more on this episode of Roughing the Kicker.
