Can the Kansas City Chiefs expect these stats to continue?

Kyle Rivas

The KC Chiefs were very efficient in 2013. Can they expect more of the same in 2014?

The reason many people are mocking a receiver to the Kansas City Chiefs is because the offense has to get better. From that standpoint, the following Chiefs stats won't be a surprise to you but I found them interesting anyway.

Indeed, that's a large discrepancy. Why was that? Because the Chiefs had the best starting field position in the NFL, which led to shorter fields. That came through an NFL record in kickoff return average and one of the NFL's best turnover margins.

Now, you can't blame the Chiefs offense in 2013 for these stats. They took advantage of the opportunities provided to them. Assuming the Chiefs don't lead the league in turnover margin and they don't have the NFL's best starting field position next season -- those things vary so much from year-to-year -- they'll need their offense to be better in 2014.

It's not so much that the Chiefs offense was bad in 2013, it's that they can't expect to be so far ahead of the league average in stats like turnover margin and starting field position next season. So they'll need a better offense to compensate for that.
