Paul Guenther didn’t spend halftime of a Raiders-Chiefs game Sunday drawing up a season’s worth of new calls. Didn’t totally change any scheme. Didn’t stand on a chair punching holes through a picture of Patrick Mahomes.
Guenther’s message was simple: Understand better how Kansas City is attacking. Make you-know-who as uncomfortable as possible. Keep coming at the Super Bowl MVP quarterback and his half-a-billion dollar contract.
Do more than you have been.
Las Vegas defenders followed their coordinator’s guidance better than perhaps he could have even hoped, a major reason the Raiders departed Arrowhead Stadium a 40-32 winner.
