LB Derrick Johnson leads the Chiefs defense with 123 tackles and is on pace for 179 stops, a total that would be the highest single-season mark in team history. LB Tamba Hali has a team-high 7.0 sacks to tie for sixth in the AFC. Over the past two seasons, the Chiefs linebacker has tallied 21.5 sacks. The club has returned two interceptions for touchdowns, including one by CB Brandon Flowers and one by S Kendrick Lewis.
WR Dwayne Bowe leads the club with 55 receptions for 819 yards (14.9 avg.) with four touchdowns. He is on pace for a career-high 1,191 receiving yards. He needs 181 more yards to record his third career 1,000-yard season and his second-consecutive such campaign, becoming only the fourth player in team history to accomplish that feat.
