Playing from behind

Not really long enough for a fanpost, too long for a fanshot. This post is like me in the lunchroom the first day of high school--it doesn't really know where to go.

While watching last weekend's game, I noticed that this season the Chiefs have been in the lead or tied for nearly the entire season. After doing a little research I found that the Chiefs have been playing from behind a total of approximately 47 minutes this season. That's only 13% of the season. Throughout these 47 minutes the Chiefs have never been losing by more than 7 points. Is this why our offense is so vanilla and safe? Anyway, here's the weekly breakdown:

Week 1--3 minutes

Week 2--28 minutes

Week 3--0 minutes

Week 4--0 minutes

Week 5--8 1/2 minutes

Week 6--7 1/2 minutes

I also wanted to check if Alex Smith/Andy Reid take more risks during the time we've been losing. He threw 37 times when we were down for 229 yards, for an average of 6.19 yards per attempt ( didn't count the two throws that had pass interference calls). His season average? 6.16 yards per attempt. So, I guess it's slow and steady, stick with the plan even when we're losing--although, as I stated before, we've never been down more than 7.

No analysis really--I'll leave that for you. Just some stats I found interesting.
