The Kansas City Chiefs have made improvement, as Todd Haley would say, "across the board." I was taking a look at a set of stats from the Chiefs game release for the Indianapolis Colts and the improvement is obvious.

And it's not just cherry-picking stats. We're talking about things like points scored, given up, third-down percentage. You know, the important stuff.

The most obvious improvement is wins. Three this year compared to zero last year.

Here's a look at the Chiefs statistical improvement through the first three games (with 2009's stat in parnetheses).
