The 2013 Kansas City Chiefs set a brand new NFL kickoff return record with a 29.9 yard return average for the season breaking a mark set 42 years ago. The Chiefs returned 44 kickoffs for 1,316 yards averaging 1/10 of a yard shy of a 30 yard per return average. The previous mark of 29.5 yards was last set 42 years ago by the 1972 Chicago Bears.
In 2013 Quintin Demps had 992 yards and Knile Davis had 321 yards for Kansas City. The pair combined for 1,313 yards on 43 returns for a staggering 30.5 yards per return average on the season. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub said, "It takes 11 people doing their job to be successful" and his kickoff unit hasn't just been successful, they set a new NFL standard for the last 48 years while breaking a record set 42 years ago!
Anchored by road graders No. 42 and No. 77 (5'10" 240 pounds fullback Anthony Sherman and 6'4" 280 pounds defensive end Mike Catapano) this return unit has led itself into the NFL record books. The Chiefs boast one of the NFL's most stellar special teams units in 2013.
If this Chiefs team can put together their best play at special teams, the "lights out" defense it displayed early on this season and an efficient Alex Smith-led offense that includes the best running back in the league (Jamaal Charles), then they will be a very tough out for any team playing in this post season.
