When Will The NFC West Beat The Kansas City Chiefs?

People point to the AFC West and NFC West as the two worst divisions in football but, say what you want about the Kansas City Chiefs, they dominate the NFC West. In fact, they embarrass the NFC West. Bob Gretz noted on CBS Sports these ridiculous stats:

The Chiefs have a nine-game winning streak against NFC West teams dating to the 2002 season. During their 9-0 run, they have outscored the NFC West teams by an average of 23 points per game.

Averaging 23 point victories! I mean....that's almost unbelievable over that length of time. Most of that comes from 49-0 (Cardinals), 49-10 (Rams) and 41-0 (49ers) victories in that time.

Against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, the Chiefs are looking to make it 10 in a row over the NFC West. To me, that's an awfully impressive record. It's not just a streak of good luck. That goes through three head coaches, three quarterbacks and two regimes.

A Chiefs victory on Sunday would mean that, at a minimum, the Chiefs streak over the NFC West would span from 2002-2014. Crazy, huh?

We'll see if the Rams do their part on Sunday and fall against the Chiefs.
