Chiefs DB L’Jarius Sneed on track to end regular season without allowing a touchdown

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed has put together an almost unbelievable campaign that makes the tall task of defending against opposing passing attacks look easy.

Through 16 games, the beloved veteran hasn’t allowed a touchdown on more than 80 targets and could end his regular season with a perfect record if he can shut down the Los Angeles Chargers’ receivers in Week 18.

Sneed’s outstanding achievement has come at a cost, though. He was among the NFL’s most penalized players in 2023, and while this aspect of his game is something that will need to be cleaned up ahead of the playoffs, Sneed’s ability to keep opponents from scoring points is second to none and could warrant recognition with Pro Bowl or All-Pro honors when the season ends.

Expect the former Louisiana Tech Bulldog to keep his hot streak alive on Sunday as Kansas City looks to finish their regular season campaign with a win.
