When your team wins 42-20, you're going to have some fun stats to look. Such is the case with the Kansas City Chiefs and their win over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday.

Here are the good stats I'm talking about after the jump:

  • Matt Cassel's excellent performance;
  • Total yards;
  • Red zone efficiency;
  • Eric Berry's all around good day; and,
  • The Chiefs' second half third down percentage. 

It's all there, after the jump...

Matt Cassel's Big Day

We've hit on Cassel a lot on the front page and it's only Monday. Cassel's 13/18, 193 yard performance was exactly what he needed to do against Jacksonville. We don't need Cassel to make spectacular plays and he was the machine driven, accurate passer he needed to be. 

Cassel ended up with a 144.0 QB rating, which is out of this world. The only difference between Cassel right now and the other top QBs in the league is the other top QBs get more attempts. 

Total Yards

The Chiefs made up for a relatively meager 193 yards passing with, ahem, 236 yards rushing. That gave KC 426 yards of offensive production. Yes, please!

Red Zone Efficiency

The Chiefs didn't attempt any field goals yesterday but that's because they were busy getting into the end zone 100% of the time they were in the red zone. Four red zone appearances, four touchdowns. Way to close out drives guys. 

Eric Berry's All Around Good Day

I cringed too when I saw Eric Berry get beat a few times yesterday but the reality I don't have to fight hard to reveal is that Berry had a pretty damn good game yesterday. In addition to his first NFL INT, Berry also had three tackles, two QB hurries and three pass deflections. One of his pass deflections was a very athletic move to knock down a short Jags pass with his right hand. 

The Chiefs On Third Down In The Second Half

Kansas City was a bit of an alarming 1-4 on third downs in the first half. Thankfully, the Chiefs converted 5-7 in the second half. Nice turnaround by the Chiefs' offense. 

Any other good stats we missed? Which ones would you have included?
