The Kansas City Chiefs defense is good at short yardage, too

It seems that the Kansas City Chiefs have been pretty good lately at stopping the opponent on third or fourth and short. This is a good trait to have as we enter the home stretch of the season and the Chiefs in a playoff hunt.

Just how good are the Chiefs on short yardage plays? Thank you for this stat, BJ Kissel.

The Chiefs defensive line is turning out to be quite good so guys like monster Dontari Poe and beast Allen Bailey can get a push on the line. Derrick Johnson is likely to shoot through the line like he was shot out of a rocket and blow up the play in the goal line.

While we're here, take a few minutes to enjoy the best Chiefs goal line stand in recent memory. Note that this is a player who was not selected to the Pro Bowl this year.
