The 1-6 record makes sure the 2012 version of the Kansas City Chiefs doesn’t go win-less this season, but there’s so just so many things that are wrong with his team apart from having a work horse of a running back in Jamaal Charles, which pretty much ends anything positive about this team.
They have scored only 13 touchdowns this season, none of them by their defense. On the other hand, they’ve turned the ball over 23 times, while forcing only 7 turnovers themselves.
They haven’t had the lead in a game for a single second through the first seven games. Not once. Their win over the New Orleans Saints was an overtime, sudden death win.
They have not scored a touchdown in their opening drive for the last 24 games. On the first possession in the second half, they have turned the ball over 3 consecutive games.
They’ve been outscored 54-3 in the first quarter of games, an average less than 1 point in the first quarter. They’re 8th in the NFL in yards gained this season, but only 30th in scoring. Why? Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. Their offense gains on average 5.2 yards per play. This results in them averaging a league 4th highest 70+ plays/game average on offense. Romeo Crennel’s defense gives up on average 6.1 yards/play.
