How The 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs Defense Compares To The Last 20 Seasons

We know that the Kansas City Chiefs defense has been playing well. They've given up just 28 points in their first two games, both victories.

They're creating turnovers, only allowing one big touchdown per game and shutting down the run. There are a lot of things to be happy about.

But how does this start rank in Chiefs history?

I went back and looked at the Chiefs first two games -- and how many points the defense gave up -- over the last 20 seasons.

The results show that this is a top five start for the Chiefs over the last 20 seasons. I found four instances over the last 20 years when the Chiefs had started out 2-0 and given up less than 28 points. What's interesting is that this performance was pretty normal for the mid-90s Chiefs.
