Kansas City Chiefs Stats Don't Match Their Record

While checking NFL.com's Chiefs stats, you'll notice that the Chiefs have topped their opponents in major categories.  The Chiefs lead in first downs, offensive yards, time of possession and they have an admirable 75% of converting 4th downs. What this table doesn't show is turnovers.  The Chiefs have 5 turnovers this season to their opponent's two.  Also, we are getting killed in sacks.  We only have one sack this year. One sack. That is so pathetic. This week, we have to pressure the QB and we have to minimize turnovers.  Do that and the Chiefs give themselves a good chance to win against an up and coming 49ers team.
