It’s definitely a tough break if Mathieu isn’t able to go today. The Honey Badger is the heart of the Chiefs defense and still plays at a Pro Bowl level all these years later.
The Cowboys are rolling into this one red hot off a 40-point win over Atlanta last week. Dak Prescott, Zeke, and the crew will look to take advantage of Matheiu’s absence, should he be out.
Kansas City’s D has been rounding into form over the past five weeks. Just in time for the offense to catch up and start clicking.
If the Chiefs are going to make another Super Bowl run, Mathieu and the defense are going to play a big part in it.
