Jets Can’t Put Too Much Focus on Le’Veon Bell in Sunday’s Affair with the Chiefs

The Jets have a huge test this Sunday for a team that has yet to win a game in 2020, as the club will take on the 6-1 Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The only loss for the Chiefs was a wild shootout loss at home to the Las Vegas Raiders a few weeks back. They rebounded last week with a road win against the Denver Broncos in the snow.

For the Jets, one of the more interesting storylines will be the “reunion” with former running back Le’Veon Bell, who is now a member of the Chiefs.

Bell had his first action as a member of the Chiefs last week, rushing the ball six times for a total of 39 yards, a healthy 6.5 yards per carry average.

In his last game with the Jets before his release, Bell ran for 60 yards on 13 carries, a 4.6 yards per carry average.

With all the weapons that the Chiefs have, they can’t just be focused on Bell.

“Yeah, I’m pretty sure that he’s going to be worried about just winning a game, period,” Jets coach Adam Gase said, via ESPN.

“That’s what most players are worried about. They’re worried about, ‘Hey, what do I have to do this week to help my team win?’ So, I’m sure that’s what he’s going to be worried about doing. We’ve got a lot of guys to worry about on that side of the ball against them.”

As a member of the Jets, Bell put up 80.2 scrimmage yards per game, way down from what he did in Pittsburgh with the Steelers, when from 2013 to 2017 he put up 129 yards per game from scrimmage.

The Jets just need a win, and while there will be some focus on Bell, they can’t forget about all the other playmakers on the Chiefs.
