True, but defenses get confidence when they know they have a clutch QB that never quits.

Same could be said about plenty of clutch QBs. Those guys don't play defense. But when a defense knows that they have to make a stop to give their QB a chance, it gives them an intangible boost that is hard to measure.

I think the Chiefs would have won if they had Charles and Davis to control the clock. I was a bit surprised by how well the team played when Charles went down so early in the game.
