Stat day is traditionally the most boring day of the week, judging by comments. I don't know though. I like it. I'm pulling these stats from iWon.com which you should definitely check out. Lots of good stuff there.
I'm taking a bit of a different approach to our (semi) weekly look at different Kansas City Chiefs stats.
Are all of these relevant? Of course not. But hopefully you find them interesting.
Talking stats, after the jump...
D Bowe and TG Get Lots of Throws
I wasn't exaggerating when I said that Tyler Thigpen had locked in on Dwayne Bowe and Tony Gonzalez the last few weeks. Here is a look at the top AFC targets of the 2008 season.
Tony Gonzalez nearly edges out the NFC leader Roddy White, who has been thrown to 127 times. NFC stats for targets is here.
Bowe's YAC lacks
One of the commentators in last week's game said after a Bowe catch something along the lines of, "That's why he's one of the best in the league after the catch." Which is sort of true. Here is where Bowe ranks in the AFC in yards after the catch.
Bowe's yards after the catch stat isn't terrible. Just not worthy of an in-game mention IMO. NFC YAC leaders are here.
Who do you pass to on 3rd down?
Tony Gonzalez, that's who. Here are the AFC stats for 1st down catches on 3rd down. As you already knew, TG is money.
Give Thigpen Three WRs
With three WRs lined up, Tyler Thigpen has the best QB rating. Lots of Pistol formations line up with three wide outs but it's still cool to see that stat.
NFC stats for QB rating with three wide outs is here.
Receiving first downs
Moving the chains is the most important aspect of an offense and the Chiefs do it through the passing game. Check out the AFC stats for receptions that resulted in a first down.
