Kansas City Chiefs Are NFL's Second Best Rushing Team In 2010 Preseason

Well, the Kansas City Chiefs are doing something right.

They're three yards from the NFL's rushing leader in the 2010 preseason through three games.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the NFL's number one team rushing the ball with 151 yards per game. The Chiefs are close behind with 150 rushing yards per game.

This supports Todd Haley's prediction that the Chiefs will be a running team in 2010. They basically already were in 2009 ending 11th in rushing yards and 25th in passing yards.

Jackie Battle currently leads all Chiefs rushers with 113 yards on 25 carries. Battle leap-frogged Javarris Williams on the latest depth chart and has turned in two consecutive solid performances in the preseason.

Jamaal Charles isn't far behind with 103 yards on 15 carries.

I also find it interesting that Dexter McCluster is fourth in carries right now. The feeling coming into camp was that McCluster would be primarily a receiver but he's gotten the ball at running back more often and done more damage there.

I'll find some stats to back this up but I think there are probably favorable W/L records for teams that rush the ball well.
