The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to make up for their Week 1 loss against the Detroit Lions with a bounce-back game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Players on both sides of the ball are competing with an extra edge, but defensive back Jaylen Watson has been the Chiefs’ premier standout early in this game after laying a phenomenal hit on a Jaguars’ ballcarrier.

As a member of Kansas City’s secondary, Watson isn’t typically thought of as a big hitter, but this play will put him on the map as one of the Chiefs’ punishes in the defensive backfield. The perfect technique on this tackle kept Jacksonville from getting back to first down, and as Kansas City faces a second-quarter deficit, the Chiefs will likely need more efforts like these to get their first lead of the game.
Keep your eye on Watson as this game progresses, as his contributions could be the difference between a win or loss for Kansas City.
