Frank Clark comes alive against the Broncos on Thursday Night Football

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It was just a week ago that Field Gulls own Tyler Alsin wrote about how fans of the Kansas City Chiefs were not happy with their offseason acquisition of Frank Clark from the Seattle Seahawks. Having given up a 2019 first round pick and a 2020 second round pick to acquire Clark, the returns through the first six games of the season had been a total of just one sack, twelve tackles (seven solo) and three quarterback hits.

Then the Chiefs traveled west to take on the Denver Broncos on Thursday and Frank Clark got his motor going to the tune of two sacks, five solo tackles and two quarterback hits. Add in a half dozen pressures of Joe Flacco, and it was by far his best game of the season.

So, while he remains behind the torrid pace of taking down quarterbacks he set in 2018, it appears as though Clark may be heating up. Over the last three games Clark now has two sacks, fifteen total pressures and three quarterback hits. Thus, it appears KC fans may finally get to appreciate the kind of dominant pass rusher that Seahawks fans got to enjoy in 2018.
