KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Back angle Mike Hughes scored his first NFL encounter in his first NFL game in 2018 for Minnesota Vikings. Even after changing this season to Chief of Kansas City and primarily acting as a backup, he never lost hope that he would have at least one more.
“Finally, I know I’ll get in there [again], “Hughes said.” There is no better way than to restore health by groping.
“It’s always good to start off so fast. I think that’s been huge for our success today. We went ahead quickly and I think that’s empowered everyone. .”
Hughes starts on Sunday in lieu of L’Jarius Sneed, who was in Louisiana with his family two days after his brother was killed. Hughes sets the tone for the game in no time, restoring a single grovel Las Vegas Raiders run again Josh Jacobs in the first play from the scenario and return 23 yards for a touchdown.
He then forced a couple of fumbles and finished as the team’s top saver for the time being dominant. Win 48-9 on Raiders.
“We practice weekly in revenue drills, just different ways to generate revenue,” says Hughes. “Many such situations have emerged today.”
Hughes was the “first round” draft pick in 2018, the 30th overall pick. The Chiefs played him a lot early in the season but he lost a lot of time playing defensively after allows some big matches. He only played twice defensively in Week 8 against Giants in New York and a week later against Green Bay Packers.
“His time came a long time ago,” Tyrann Mathieu speak. “It’s taken a while. He’s playing with that confidence now, that swagger. He’s one of those guys where every time he gets the ball, he tries to punch it out or rip it off. . That’s what creates our energy and our defense, that’s what we earn.”
The Chiefs were rewarded on Sunday with their patience in Hughes.
Coach Andy Reid said: “You really support players who are able to get through difficult positions and play well in defence. “So he’s a popular guy.”
