We're an easy bunch to please. After last year's record setting 10 sack season, the Kansas City Chiefs are on pace for 24 sacks.
Yeah, yeah, it's a small sample size, I know. But there is some hope with the front seven. Chris is coming up with a more detailed post on the defense but I wanted to highlight that something as little as three sacks every game makes the Chiefs pass rush twice as good as last year.
Today there were two sacks.
- Derrick Johnson sack on 3rd and 10
- Wallace Gilberry sack on 1st and 15
Yeah, like I said, it's not much but it's still a start. After two games, they're tied for third place in the NFL.
Other bright spots on the defense:
Tank Tyler again had seven tackles
- Glenn Dorsey had four tackles
Unfortunately, though, they didn't get any of those turnovers they got in Baltimore. Despite having one of the most inaccurate games that I can remember (and let's face it: I'm a Chiefs fan so I know about inaccurate passers), JaMarcus Russell did not turn the ball over.
