    The alleged victim in the February 2018 incident involving
    former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt initially wanted to press charges.
    Now Eric Murray
    , 19-year-old Abby Ottinger simply wants to be left alone.A
    comprehensive review of the situation conducted by ESPN’s included an effort to
    speak to Ottinger. A member of her family told ESPN on Wednesday that “the whole
    incident has been very difficult for her and that all she wants now is her
    privacy.”This means that Hunt most likely won’t face criminal charges.
    Ottinger’s lack of cooperation, however, won’t keep the NFL from taking action
    against Hunt, because the evidence of what Hunt did appears on a video that the
    NFL was unable to obtain, but TMZ wasn’t.Some league insiders have speculated
    that Hunt and Ottinger reached a settlement. However, Hunt’s explanation from a
    Sunday interview with ESPN’s Lisa Salters created the impression that Hunt
    doesn’t know much if anything about Ottinger, making a settlement unlikely
    (unless it was handled largely if not exclusively by Hunt’s lawyer). Others have
    suggested that Ottinger had a change of heart once she realized that the facts
    of the case would include an allegation that she directed racial slurs at
    Rayshawn Watkins, a friend and former teammate of Hunt’s.Regardless, the account
    from ESPN creates a clear impression that management at the hotel where Hunt had
    leased an apartment was motivated to protect Hunt, and that police weren’t
    motivated to do much of anything, other than defer to hotel management.
    29-year-old Derek Szeto, a bystander who sensed that the hotel wasn’t taking the
    situation seriously and “was acting
    weird Kendall Fuller
    ,” was detained by police after using his phone to record video of
    his interactions with hotel officials and refusing to surrender it to police.At
    a time when the NFL has absorbed plenty of criticism for its investigation of
    the situation, it’s clear based on the ESPN report that the hotel and police
    didn’t seem to be all that inclined in getting to the truth, which necessarily
    made it much harder for the NFL to figure out what had transpired.Chiefs vs.
    Jaguars: How the Chiefs defense beats Jacksonville It’s Friday at Arrowhead
    Pride, so we’re moving on from the victory over the Denver Broncos, and moving
    on to the Kansas City Chiefs’ matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week
    4!Most headlines this week will be dominated by the Chiefs’ league-best offense
    against the vaunted Jaguars defense, but it’s the other side of the of this
    matchup that might be where the game is really decided — boasting a run-heavy
    offense and a short passing game, the Jaguars match up well with where the
    Chiefs are weakest.So like every week, I went down to The Laboratory to take a
    look at what the opposition’s offense looks like, some matchups and tendencies
    that they like to exploit and what the Chiefs defense can do to try to stop them
    on Sunday.The Jaguars offenseReinhold Matay-USA TODAY SportsNo longer just a
    punchline from The Good Place, quarterback Blake Bortles has had a decent start
    this year, averaging 273 yards a game passing — with seven touchdowns and three
    interceptions. However, he’s been more miss than hit on the road in the regular
    season in the past couple
    seasons Sammy Watkins
    , averaging just 91 yards passing with 0.77 touchdowns and one
    interception per game. At running back, the Jaguars will be without starter
    Leonard Fournette, but they still have a capable back in T.J. Yeldon. While he
    doesn’t quite have the same balance or ability to break tackles, Yeldon catches
    the ball well and hits the hole with speed. Jacksonville will mix in a heavy
    dose of Corey Grant as well.We should expect to see a ton of carries from the
    Jaguars backfield.At wide receiver, the Jaguars feature former Indianapolis
    Colts receiver Donte Moncrief — a productive pass catcher — and 2017 undrafted
    free agent Keelan Cole, who is a solid route runner with good hands. In the
    slot, Dede Westbrook does a lot of damage underneath attacking the center of the
    field. While it’s not the most talented group the Chiefs will face this year,
    all of them are solid in their individual roles.At tight end, the Jaguars use a
    number of two tight end sets with Austin Seferian-Jenkins and former Chief James
    O’Shaughnessy. Jenkins is the better pass catcher, but O’Shaughnessy has found
    success finding the seams in the zone this year. Third tight end Niles Paul may
    also see some targets out of 13 personnel as well.The Jaguars offensive line
    added Andrew Norwell from the Carolina Panthers this offseason to bolster their
    interior. Brandon Linder and A.J. Cann round out the rest of a good interior.
    Josh Wells and Jermey Parnell are unknown names that have had some success this
    year but will be lined up opposite their biggest test of the year in Justin
    Houston and Dee Ford.How to defendExploiting the middle of Cover 3 zoneI
    regularly pick on the Chiefs for not taking care of their zone responsibilities,
    and the Jaguars will try to do so as well. They picked apart the New York Jets
    Cover 3 looks last week with lots of clear-out routes and varying crossing
    depths.On this play, the Jaguars utilize multiple stressors to pull players out
    of position. The play action keeps both of the hook defenders in the
    box Anthony Hitchens
    , reading the running back. Both outside receivers run 9 routes to
    clear the boundary defenders. After the play action, both players lined up in
    the backfield run routes into the flats. The slot receiver runs a dig with acres
    of space to work.The hook defenders aren’t able to gain enough depth to take
    away the throw due to the run action freezing them initially, the apex defenders
    aren’t able to get more depth on their zones due to the routes in the flats, and
    the boundary corners have to respect the vertical routes. The deep safety
    doesn’t have a chance to make a play on this pass either, due to his
    depth.That’s fantastic play design attacking the hole in a Cover 3 shell.The
    Jaguars will attack the underneath zone as well.This play is designed to get the
    boundary wide receiver in space by running a clearout with the field receiver
    and having the two tight ends run a curl/slant combo to occupy the hook
    defenders. The result is a rub/pick by the near tight end — with no apex
    defender to cover the field flat and the boundary corner having to run with the
    wide receiver.The Jaguars do a great job scheming receivers open and finding the
    weak spots in the zone defense when teams feel like they have to deploy it. The
    Chiefs haven’t done well with flowing and passing in their zone responsibilities
    as it is, so expect Jacksonville to target the center of the field with digs and
    crossers to exploit the space left behind by stressing these zone defenders.From
    the Chiefs’ perspective, the hope would be to run the preferred man coverage
    schemes to try to press — thereby throwing off the timing off on the underneath
    crossing routes, and denying Jacksonville the opportunity to scheme holes in the
    zone.Misdirection and RPOsJacksonville isn’t necessarily a team with an
    innovative offense, but they like to toss in enough creativity to force defenses
    to respect all their looks. Here’s a fun RPO that they threw at the New England
    Patriots a couple weeks ago.Out of 21 personnel in a 3x1 alignment, they line
    Grant up as the back man in a bunch formation with Yeldon next to Bortles. Grant
    circle motions behind Bortles while he reads the Patriots strong-side defensive
    end.If the defensive end stays wide and tracks Grant, Bortles will hand the ball
    off to Yeldon on the outside zone run. If the defensive end collapses on the
    run, Bortles will pull the ball and throw the swing pass to Grant. The defensive
    end collapses and the Jaguars offensive line is hat-for-hat blocking to that
    side of the
    field Mitchell
    Schwartz Jersey
    , springing Yeldon for a giant gain.It’s an excellent play
    call that forces lighter boxes or open receivers and really puts the defense in
    a bind. In this scenario, the defense has to win a matchup on the weak side to
    stop this play, as they don’t have the numbers. The weak-side defensive end or
    tackle needs to gain penetration or delay a second level block while the
    linebacker beats the guard to the gap to stop the run.Bortles windupBortles has
    always had a long throwing motion, but he’s been working on it this year.
    Still... it’s long enough to anticipate and jump the throw in the front.Here,
    Avery Williamson stunts on his blitz, but the offensive line picks up the stunt.
    He knows he’s not getting home on the rush, so rather than continuing to engage
    the center and make no progress, he drops into the throwing lane, sees Bortles
    slow windup, and gets his hands in the lane to bat the ball into the air. This
    results in an easy pick for the Jets secondary.Sutton should be stressing this
    long throwing motion this week — and keying on it — with his pass rushers. While
    the outcome might not be as fortunate as this play, batted balls and occupying
    those lanes may cause Bortles to hold the ball a beat longer, allowing the
    Chiefs pass rush to get home more regularly.The bottom lineWhile Bortles and the
    Jacksonville offense don’t exactly strike fear into the hearts of most
    defenses Juan
    Thornhill Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys
    , their game plan is not a good
    matchup for the Chiefs defense.The Jaguars have a proven willingness to stick
    with the run and take the air completely out of the game — something that the
    Denver Broncos did well against the Chiefs defense this last week. The Jaguars
    will stick with it, too.The Jaguars also attack the areas of the Chiefs defense
    that are poorest in coverage — crossing routes from wide receivers, tight ends
    up the seams and running backs in the flat. If the Chiefs defense does find a
    way to get themselves in good down and distance situations, the Jaguars may
    still be able to dig themselves out with these kinds of passes.The Chiefs need
    to lean on their man defense as much as possible this week, and press to disrupt
    some of these timing routes. The Chiefs edge rushers have been ramping up the
    pressure over the past couple of weeks, and Bortles will take some silly sacks
    instead of throwing the ball away. If Dee Ford is a full go this weekend, I
    think we could see him do some damage to the Jacksonville passing game.If the
    Chiefs can stop the run on early downs (please tackle) and force Bortles and
    company into throwing more, they’ve got a shot to stop the Jaguars offense — one
    that hasn’t been great away from home — and give the ball back to the Chiefs
