Through Week 12, the Kansas City Chiefs' offense is certainly looking like a top ten offense in the NFL. Check out the categories where the Chiefs rank in the top ten relative to the rest of the NFL:
Yards/game (6th): The Chiefs have been racking up nice yardage recently, especially with Matt Cassel's progression. The Chiefs have been equally as dangerous through the air as on the ground lately.
Yards/play (10th): This is a big jump from last year and, again, it's due largely to Cassel's improvement and the domination of the running game.
Rushing yards (1st): This just in: KC has a couple of good running backs.
Rushing yards/play (2nd): Surprised? Only that they're not first. Jamaal Charles leads all NFL rushers in yards per carry.
INT rate (2nd): If it weren't for one Tom Brady, KC would lead this category.
First downs/game (7th): This is another big one because it shows KC can go on extended drives.
Red zone percentage (7th): I like this one a lot because it's about getting points when you get that close. I guess Todd Haley's fourth down gambles haven't hurt KC.
Points/game (4th): Bottomline, this is what matters. KC puts up a ton of points, especially over the last month. Just think about that for a second -- 4th ranked offense!
