Historically jaw dropping stats

How bad are the chiefs? Lets compare them to the all time worst NFL teams and just see how they stack up this season. While I wont compare all stats because that is way too much work, ill compare the ones where the chiefs are worse then the previous teams. Ill compare the worst teams through the first 11 weeks of play as they didn’t have bye weeks in previous seasons. Keep in mind that the league was different in the 70’s than it is now being that the offenses weren’t near as potent as they are today. With that said, I just want to show you how historically bad we actually are this seas

1976 buccaneers (0-14)

Through 11 weeks, they had 8 passing TD’s. Chiefs have 6.
opposing teams averaged 5.1 yards per play. Chiefs average 6.0.
27 total turnovers for the bucs. Chiefs have 32.
bucs d forced 23 turnovers. Chiefs have forced 11. Wow.
bucs opponents scored 290 points. Chiefs opponents- 301

(one shocking stat while looking at points scored is the chiefs haven’t been shutout yet this season…hmm…)

1990 patriots (1-15)

Defense forced 23 turnovers by week 12. Chiefs- 11.
offense turned it over 24 times. Chiefs -32.
pats had 14 passing td’s at the end of the season. Chiefs on pace for 8.5.
end of season pats turnover ratio was -4. Chiefs CURRENTLY is -21. Pace for what…30?

1973 Houston Oilers (1-13)

10 passing td’s through 11 games. Chiefs have 6. This is a passing league now….sigh….

oilers scored 162 points. Chiefs- 161
defense forced 18 TO’s. chiefs- 11.
oilers had a game of 340 passing yards. Most chiefs have had is 272. Passing league?

This was just a quick search to prove just how bad statistically our team is. This justifies how pissed we as fans truly are. The fact that there are stats (important ones at that) that are worse than what are known as the worst teams in NFL history is just impressive. We are historically bad dating back to the beginning of football times. I know this doesn’t help your Monday at all, but it’s the truth. And it stings.
