Dwayne Bowe Approaching KC Chiefs Record Books

New, comments

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has had an incredible six-game stretch that will likely put him in a few more spots in the Chiefs record books. Looking over a few stats on Bowe's rank relative to other great seasons in Chiefs history, I'm realizing how close he is to putting up arguably the greatest receiving season in Chiefs history.

He's very close to breaking the single-season receiving TD record. He has 11 now which puts him in second place with Otis Taylor, Stephone Paige and Tony Gonzalez. The record-holder is Chris Burford with 12. With Bowe's pace, he'll break that next week.

Bowe's on pace for a career high in receiving yards but what really separates him from the pack is his touchdown receptions. His 10-touchdown-in-six-games streak is pretty impressive (and a franchise record) putting him as the front-runner, in my mind, to record the greatest single receiving season in Chiefs history.

Here's how some of the other great seasons stack up:

1966 Otis Taylor: 58 catches, 1,291 yards, 8 TDs

2000 Derrick Alexander: 78 catches, 1,391 yards, 10 TDs

2002 Tony Gonzalez: 102 catches, 1,258 yards, 7 TDs

2008 Tony Gonzalez: 96 catches, 1,058 yards, 10 TDs

2010 Dwayne Bowe (projected): 72 catches, 1, 144 yards, 17.6 touchdowns
