A week after breaking the Kansas City Chiefs franchise record for punts inside the 20, punter Dustin Colquitt quietly had one of the better days of his career yesterday against the Denver Broncos.

Colquitt's gross punting average of 53.71 yards was the fourth best number in franchise history.  Here's how Colquitt's punts broke down:

Punt Start Finish Yards Return
1 KC 24 DEN 16 60 21
2 KC 35 DEN 20 45 0
3 KC 22 DEN 33 45 6
4 KC 16 DEN 21 63 14

A couple of those returns hurt the Chiefs but Colquitt has consistently put his the return team in opportunistic situations.

To recap, Colquitt leads the NFL in punts inside the 20 (and set a franchise record).  He's second in fair catches.  He's No. 1 in total punts but is 8th in number of returns.  Shane Lechler of the Raiders is tied with Colquitt for the most punts but is also No. 1 in number of returns. He's also first in the NFL (by a wide margin) in number of downed punts.

So, congrats to Mr. Colquitt for quietly putting together a very nice day.
