Chiefs offense one of four teams not run play with a lead

This is a fun stat.

By “fun” I mean completely awful.

ESPN says that the Chiefs are one of four teams who have not run a play on offense with the lead.

The Jaguars and Dolphins are not good. The Colts should be good but are not. And then there’s the Chiefs. It’s not an inspiring group to be in right now, is it?

The Chiefs got down big early to the Chargers before coming back so they never had the lead. In Houston, the Texans scored first and didn’t give it up so the Chiefs didn’t run a play with the lead then either. Yikes.

That’s gotta change this weekend against the Jets. The Chiefs are at home, their backs are inching against the wall and they could get their best (best?) offensive player back. This is the weekend when the Chiefs can inspire more confidence going forward than being lumped in a group with the Jaguars.
