The Chiefs are crushing fools in the fourth quarter lately

The Kansas City Chiefs are 9-5 on the season. After the 1-5 start and eight straight wins, we can now say the Chiefs are a good team. And they're a great team when they need to be the most.

In the past five games, the Chiefs have out-scored opponents in the fourth quarter by a score of 50-0.

50-0!

The Chiefs haven't given up a fourth quarter score since November 15 against the Denver Broncos (when the Chiefs had the game wrapped up).

They scored 20 fourth quarter points against the Raiders two weeks ago which included three Derek Carr interceptions. Against Buffalo they put up six fourth quarter points and against the Chargers last month they scored 14 fourth quarter points. Add in Sunday's 10 fourth quarter points against the Ravens and you have 50-0.

Conversely, the Chiefs have started slow in a few games recently, too. They were down 10-0 against Buffalo and 20-14 to the Raiders in the second half. Even the Ravens looked good in the first quarter against the Chiefs ... but not in the fourth quarter. No one looks good against the Chiefs in the fourth quarter, apparently.
