The young Alabama standout was stellar for the second straight week. His 54-yard return helped set up the Chiefs' only touchdown drive of the game. We all knew that he had amazing speed, but he also has the ability to bounce off would be tacklers and gain extra yards. If he can keep this up, the starting field position woes of the Chiefs' offense will be a thing of the past.
However, with Arenas out of the game, Quinten Lawrence struggled mightily to get any yardage. On four kick-off returns, he only found the twenty yard line twice. That's not good. He was a standout return man in college but he's slowly playing himself off the roster. He might be the team's best gunner, but with the emergence of wide receiver Jeremy Horne, Lawrence might not make this roster.
It's still a bit perplexing that Dexter McCluster isn't handling the back-up duties under Arenas. Hopefully that changes.
Kudos to Chiefs' kicker Ryan Succop. He hit both of his short field goals, putting to rest any jitters he's shown in camp the last couple of weeks. But what impressed me was his ability to drive the ball into the end zone on his kickoffs. Considering the humid air of Tampa, that's impressive.
I also thought the coverage teams were strong. When the Bucs did field the ball, they managed very few yards.
Just another ho-hum night for Dustin Colquitt. Four punts on the night. One he dropped inside the twenty, another he banged for 60 yards, and the other two averaged 44 yards.
