Where the Kansas City Chiefs Rank: Week 7

New, comments

Good news this morning Arrowhead Pride readers. The Kansas City Chiefs no longer have the worst defense in the NFL! Thank you Washington...

I've compiled two tables - offense and defense - of where the Kansas City Chiefs rank in various categories relative to the rest of the NFL. Last week's ranks are in parentheses and I've colored the stats where we improved in green and where we dropped in red.

The good news this week? Lots more green in these tables. You can check out last week's tables here.

From Week 5 to Week 6, the Chiefs improved their rankings in exactly zero categories. After last Sunday's game, the team has improved their rankings in 19 of our different categories, with most of those gains coming on the defensive side of the ball.

Some of the most important improvements in my opinion are:

  • Defensive 3rd down percentage
  • Offensive first downs per game
  • First downs allowed per game
  • Interception rate

And some of the important areas where we remained stagnant or lost ground in the rankings:

  • Rushing yards per game
  • Offensive yards per game
  • Sacks per pass attempt
  • Points a game

Jump over and check out the tables. Take a closer look and let us know your thoughts.
