Chiefs Nearing NFL Record Number of Drops

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has said previously he doesn't think he has ever been apart of a team that drops as many balls as the Chiefs.

Well, he's wrong.

The Chiefs are only four dropped passes away from tying a NFL record held by the 2003 Detroit Lions and the 1995 New York Jets. Haley of course was in his first year as a scouting assistant for the Jets in 1995.

The Chiefs currently stand at 47 dropped passes. The NFL record is 51. (Numbers come via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.)

Mark Bradley was a culprit in the drops category and now he's gone. Dwayne Bowe is a major culprit as well, and he's back.

The question now becomes, with two games remaining, will they break the record?
