Kansas City Chiefs can make some NFL history in Week 4

The KC Chiefs 3-0 start is so unusual that they can make a little history with another victory in Week 4 against the New York Giants.

Chiefs can tie NFL record for best start to a season after a 14-loss season

Right now, the Chiefs are one of five teams in NFL history to start 3-0 after at least 14 losses the previous season. The 1980 Detroit Lions hold the NFL record with four straight wins to start the season after losing that many games the year before. The Chiefs can tie the Lions for the NFL record with a win on Sunday against New York.

The other 14-loss-to-3-0-start teams are the 2002 Carolina Panthers, 2001 San Diego Chargers and 1980 San Francisco 49ers. Only the Lions ended the season with a winning record.

Chiefs can tie NFL record of turnover-free football to start a season

The Chiefs have yet to turn the football over. An impressive feat through three games. The only other NFL team in NFL history to start a season with four consecutive games of turnover-free ball is the 1995 St. Louis Rams.

I can't tell you how insane that stat is after last season. Just crazy.
