The Kansas City Chiefs have struggled on offense in recent weeks, and Andy Reid has implemented a change that he hopes will resolve some of the issues.

Reid has stripped down his offensive playbook ahead of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Media. The Chiefs will likely feature fewer plays and personnel packages in Week 17 than they have to this point in the season.

Reid is hoping Kansas City’s offense will benefit from having fewer players running on and off the field during drives. That could, in theory, help the Chiefs get into a better rhythm and keep Cincinnati’s defense on its heels.

The Chiefs are coming off an ugly 20-14 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. A wild stat that went viral from that game helped illustrate how Patrick Mahomes and company failed to do their job.

Though they have lost three of their last four games, the Chiefs can still clinch another AFC title with a win over the Bengals. Reid is hoping a more simplistic approach on offense will help them accomplish that goal.
