How Do Chiefs Offensive Players Stack Up Against the Rest of the NFL?

By james.adkins


[picappgallerysingle id=”10209604″]The Kansas City Chiefs are having their best season since the Dick Vermeil led group that went 10-6 in 2005, a team that saw running back Larry Johnson step in for an injured Priest Holmes and run for 1,750 yards in nine games, but still miss the playoffs.

This season, the Chiefs again have two All-Pro caliber running backs leading the way, on pace to out-rush Johnson and Holmes by more than 200 yards. In fact, almost no matter how you slice it offensively, this group is statistically better then their 2005 counterparts. Quarterback Matt Cassel has already in ten games thrown for more touchdowns (18) then Trent Green (17) did in all of 2005, and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe’s 11 TDs have already eclipsed the combined total (7) of Eddie Kennison and Tony Gonzalez.

So knowing how this group compares to the last Chiefs team to win 10 games, the question is how does this 2010 Chiefs offense stack up against the rest of the NFL?
