Six Chiefs Appear in Annual NFL Top 100 Rankings
The heart and soul of the Chiefs' defense, safety Tyrann Mathieu, also appeared in the upper half of the rankings at No. 39. Mathieu did a little bit of everything for Kansas City's defense in 2019, and as the regular season hit the homestretch, there was simply nobody better at his position. In fact, from Week 10 through the Super Bowl, Mathieu was the only safety in the NFL to record at least three interceptions and three pass-breakups without allowing a touchdown in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. Additionally, he yielded the fewest yards-per-catch of any safety with 20+ targets in the league during that stretch.
