Is this the Chiefs offense we want?

Another week and another win for the Kansas City Chiefs. This is becoming habitual, and I love it.

Wins by the Jets and Steelers means that K.C. has no ability to let off the throttle at all as they are still in a three way tie for the AFC Wild Card slots. But if they win out then they will be in the playoffs. That may be either as the top Wild Card or as the third seed as AFC West champs (depending on how Denver fares over their final two games), but Kansas City will be in the postseason. And with their only remaining games coming against the Browns and Raiders, I consider K.C.’s chances of being in the playoffs to be pretty darn good.

That in and of itself will be a great accomplishment. But we all know that Kansas City has a horrible history in the playoffs over the past 20+ years. So what kind of prospects do these Chiefs have once they make it the postseason?

At first blush the answer may seem blatantly obvious. The Chiefs have been rolling over opponents of late and have won six out of eight games in this streak by at least ten points. According to, they have the eighth-ranked offense in the league, and the third-ranked offense. Those are fantastic stats, and ones that few would have believed back in October.
