Chiefs LB Nick Bolton will be in tough matching up against the best running back in the NFL
Chiefs LB Nick Bolton will be in tough matching up against the best running back in the NFL. Christian McCaffrey is matchup proof, the best the Chiefs can hope for is to limit his effectiveness and that will be the focal point for this Chiefs linebacking corps. McCaffrey is averaging 5,4 yards per carry and 126 all purpose yards per game, Bolton will be busy and will need to come up big for the Chiefs.
Bolton, famous for his momentum changing scoop and score vs the Eagles in Superbowl LVII, is looking to make a similar impact in year as well. Bolton who only played 8 games was rock solid being involved in 60 tackles and 1 interception in those 8 games. If Bolton and the Chiefs can keep CMC somewhat contained, they have a great shot at winning this game.
