I wanted to post these numbers before tomorrow's game so you can have more stats bouncing around in your head. A more detailed breakdown of what's been called by down in 2008 by the Kansas City Chiefs is after the jump.

Stats like this always help those discussions with friends when they mention stuff like, "The Chiefs always do XYZ on this down..."

Yep, AP is making you sound smarter on game day. Use this information wisely though. Many times inebriated fans do not appreciate "logic", "reason" or "facts". Heck, a lot of times stone cold sober fans don't appreciate facts.
