We've been doing Five Good Stats and Five Bad Stats stories after every game for a few years and back in 2008 and 2009 it was usually pretty hard to come up with five good stats as the Chiefs combined for six wins in those two years.

But I'm not sure if I've ever had a harder time coming up with five good stats than Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Here's my attempt at five good stats from Sunday's game:
6. 2010 playoff teams, including the Chiefs, that lost on Sunday.

7. That's the number of points the Chiefs scored. Hey, they could've been shut out.

9. That's the number of touches for RB Dexter McCluster. He was a factor early in the Chiefs 2010 season but, after an ankle injury, he didn't do much. It appears he's going to be a little more involved this year. His total numbers were nine offensive touches for 67 yards. This is probably the result of Tony Moeaki missing the entire season.

61.1. That's Matt Cassel's completion percentage. For the purposes of this story and that we need five good stats, please ignore that he only had 119 yards on those 22 completions.

60. That's the number of minutes played in this game. Last year, these two teams played 75 minutes as the Chiefs needed all of overtime to beat the Bills. Luckily, we didn't have to watch the Chiefs for more than 60 minutes yesterday. Now that would have been torture.
