ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs offered a preview during recent 11-on-11 training camp practices of what could be in store for unsuspecting quarterbacks this season.
Pro Bowl linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston, first-round draft pick Dee Ford and fellow pass-rusher Josh Martin all trotted onto the field at the same time, leaving defensive tackle Dontari Poe as the lone down lineman in a unique scheme designed to create pressure.
Elsewhere in the NFL, similar personnel groups are known as ''NASCAR packages'' - the idea is that they overwhelm the opposing offense with their speed.
''We call it the `dog front,''' Hali said. ''A bunch of dogs going after (the quarterback).''
