CBS Rapid Reports: Kansas City Chiefs


Here are some intersting tidbits on our beloved Chiefs:

One of the factors in going 10-6 last season was the play of the offensive line, and the key among the blockers was health. The Chiefs had 1,063 snaps. Here’s how many the starting O-line played: LT Branden Albert (92 percent), LG Brian Waters (95 percent), C Casey Wiegmann (100 percent), RG Ryan Lilja (93 percent), RT Barry Richardson (94 percent).

There was a lot of conversation last season about the RB workload and how it was divided between starter Thomas Jones and the Chiefs’ best running threat, Jamaal Charles. Charles was on the field for 587 plays, and Jones played 450 snaps, according to documents from what used to be the NFL Players Association.

Improved defensive play last season was helped by continuity on the starting unit. SS Eric Berry played 100 percent of the defensive snaps. CB Brandon Carr was on the field for 99 percent of the plays, and ILB Derrick Johnson played 97 percent of the snaps. Those three missed a combined 41 of 1,028 plays
