Ingram has struggled to get to the quarterback the past two seasons with only one sack across 13 games. However, this season that has come in part due to a decrease in playing time. He was inactive last week and prior to the Steelers’ Week 7 bye, he played 17 snaps against the Seahawks, or only 26% of the team’s defensive plays.
Ingram had seven sacks in each of 2018 and 2019 and if he still has something in the tank, he would be a situational upgrade for the Chiefs. KC ranks 31st in pass defense efficiency and is also 31st in adjusted sack rate. They have 11 sacks as a team, which is tied for second to last and rank 28th with 220 points allowed on defense. This is a unit in dire need of an upgrade.
