THIS A.J. Brown
The Chiefs saw A.J. Brown the last time they faced off, but let me remind you of just how different Brown has been since that game.
First 10 games of the season (including Kansas City): 44.4 yards per game, 0.3 TDs per game.
Last 6 games of the season: 111.2 yards per game, 1 TD per game.
He is a completely different player shifting from a good rookie season to a historic rookie year where he was explosive on a level that no on in the NFL had seen even among the great names on their own teams.
It is easy to say, well the Chiefs didn’t have this DB or this guy wasn’t 100% but someone gave A.J. Brown a Fire Stone during the bye week and he straight up evolved into something the league couldn’t stop and couldn’t prepare for.
The only reason he hasn’t taken center stage in these playoffs is because, despite a record breaking rookie season, he just so happens to be on a team with a running back having a legendary season of his own as he decimates entire defenses.
Make no mistake, the fastest player on the field for both teams will be Tyreek Hill but it was A.J. Brown broke 1,000 yards, led the league in 40+ yard plays, had 8 TDs, and averaged over 20 yards per reception. Those are all things that Hill did not manage despite the misconception that the Chiefs have an elite offense while the Titans only run the ball.
