How do you prevent a letdown against a winless club at home after you beat a division rival in overtime on Monday night? Don't turn the ball over. After watching the winless cross-state Rams get their first victory over the Saints thanks to turnovers, the gang at Arrowhead Pride warns that fumbles (looking at you, Dexter McCluster) could play into a huge upset.
Running the football on offense and generating turnovers on defense are the ultimate equalizers for inferior teams, and Miami’s defense will surely be looking to hound Chiefs’ ball-carriers in search of the football. Dexter McCluster is the Chiefs best option in up-tempo and two-minute offensive situations, but he has struggled in 2011 with fumbles. McCluster is a small frame who takes a whack nearly every time he touches the football, and he just needs to focus on falling forward with two hands on the ball, rather than looking for pay dirt on each carry.
