The link above is to the only time in 2011 the Chiefs scored 24 or more offensive points, Week 5 against the horrid Indianapolis Colts, who were 0-4 on their way to an 0-13 start. In 2012 Week 1, our defense played poorly, there's no doubt about it. But our offense had a completely new crispness and style about it. Despite Matt Cassel turning the ball over 3x, we still put up 24 points against a team that was 12th in total defense last year. Last year, the only time we managed 24+ points, we needed zero turnovers to pull it off.
If we can rally the defense, this team will be in great shape.
