Breaking Down The Kansas City Chiefs Penalties

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have been doing an outstanding job avoiding penalties this season. They're currently first in the NFL with just 14 penalties (although with only three games played compared to four for most teams).

We went through and broke down all the penalties the Chiefs have gotten this year.

Barry Richardson, starting in place of Ryan O'Callaghan, has been the biggest culprit to this point. Demorrio Williams, who hasn't been starting, comes in second. Last year this list saw Branden Albert and Brian Waters at the top.

Here's the full penalty break down. It's hard to see many trends with such limited data. What jumps out at you?
