Sus, you already know this story: KC defense keeps DEN from scoring a lot of points while waiting for the KC offense to score more than FGs. This will keep the game within one or two scores until DEN exhausts the KC defense and hits them for 14 on two straight drives in the fourth.

KC finally puts a drive together but a WR drops a ball.

Game summary: KC defense let them down because they couldn't hold it. Combine that with drops and there you go. Alex didn't make any mistakes and who cares if he didn't make big plays either.

Option number two: blowout and the OL DEF and WRs looked terrible and didn't come to play.

Personal attack on Alexsexuals.

You just described just about every team in the NFL that scored 20+ pts Couple of TD and a couple of field goals in between...

How many drives per game average in the NFL...? Without looking it up I want to say 7-10.

KC is ranked 17th with 22 3 and out drives. The team that is ranked first has 33 3 and out drives.

Cases keep being made that KC offense is making their defense better. However, it is the other way around.

KC offense is ranked 24th in yards per drive. Lol, their defense is ranked #1.

What it gives them between the two is a net of 7th in yards per drive.

I was curious because all I read is Alex moves the chains and makes his defense better but how can that be if KC offense struggles to score. I watched the last few games and I was not seeing what I read.

Alex does one important thing for his defense and that is not to turn the ball over. However, the KC defense actually can overcome that also due to the poor competition and backup QBs.

So, in KCs case, their defense is making that offense better.

Read my next post. KC is not very good at "moving the chains". It is obvious their defense carries them. Now considering their defense has scored 7 TDs, two big drives a game is all they need since their defense scores and stops teams from scoring.

Punting the ball so the other team's offense has to go the distance and give your own defense a longer field to defend. Football fundamental.... Part of the reason their defense ranked so high, especially lower scores given up. The Chiefs offense rarely given up a turnover in their own territory. That's setting up a wining situation for their defense.

Punting is setting up the best situation for your defense.

I just saw the drop that McCluster had against the Bills. Just.... wow. People say Smith never throws downfield. While it's true that he takes minimal risks downfield, it's hard to blame him when someone this wide open botches it.

Smith isn't perfect, but egads, he can't be the one to catch the ball, too.

Sure it is. Keep coming up with reasons hat hold no ground. Here are some more numbers about your long field claim.

KCs #1 ranked defense in yards per drive allows only 22.5 yards per drive.

KC offense only gets 26.75 yards per drive which is actually ranked 24 and not 22.

So, it looks like the defense hooks up the offense with short field position. If it were the other way around, the. KC offense would have a stronger yards per drive number. So, you are saying the team in the bottom of the league that averages only 26 yards per drive is moving the chains so the opponent has a long field? The numbers say the opposite.

Read my edited post. Also their defense is given up pts in the teens. That's the safe offense setting the defense in a good situation. Yes. By punting the ball.

Since you like those pretty numbers so much, any thoughts about KC leading the league #1 in offensive penalties? Thoughts on the being top 10 in dropped passes? Do you think these issues alone contribute greatly to a drive stalling?
*sigh*

It never ends. Same characters, same arguments. Only the team name has changed.

Let's just all agree that Smith is the luckiest QB on the planet, and that the Chiefs are the worst team in football, true frauds with a 9-0 record. Why, EVERY TEAM could be 9-0 with that schedule!

There.

Now we can move on, right?

Which is why the defense is carrying the offense. The only thing the offense is doing well is not turning it over which isn't the best in the league. You know what is? Their defense.

Keeping trying to make more excuses.

How do you "know" that they won't win their division? They have to lose all of their games to not make the playoffs. The AFC is weak this year. I don't think they make it past the championship game, but that is not to say they can't. I still say defense wins championships.

i think theyll win the division. denver has a great offense, but KCs defense can stop them. KC can run and Alex will not turn the ball over and hes moving the chains. the KC chiefs this year are the 2011 49ers pretty much

Reid is already showing that he can't stick to the run game. As soon as the Broncos get an early lead, Alex will be forced to throw every down and he'll continue to play conservatively. I have no doubts that Reid will shelve Charles as soon as they get behind. The Chiefs can't keep up with the Broncos.

And you know this as a fact? Bottom line, whether they played anyone worthy or not, that defense of theirs is something to watch! I think they have the ability to match up well with the Broncos and it can go either way.
