Kansas City Chiefs Have Yet To Give Up Points Off Of Turnover

New, comments

Of all those statistics about the Kansas City Chiefs we see, this one is up there for the most impressive: The Chiefs have yet to give up any points off of turnovers.

None. Zero. We're six games into the season so this isn't a fluky stat.

"I think what is clear as you look at statistics in the league," Haley said, "and there are always some trend-breakers or trend-buckers, that turnover differential – that points off of turnovers is a key stat in winning and losing."

The Chiefs are currently +7 in turnover differential and the NFL leader is at +10.

The Chiefs have thrown three interceptions. Peyton Manning and the Colts are the only team to top them in that category.

The Chiefs have lost just one fumble and lead the league in that category. By comparison, the San Diego Chargers lead the league with 12 lost fumbles. Remember all those times last year it looked like Haley was going to lose it talking about hanging onto the football? Looks like it worked.

For a reference, the Chiefs have scored 48 points off of their opponent's turnovers. That makes their zero points off of turnover stat even more impressive in comparison.
