Last year the Chiefs averaged 32:14 and still had a bottom ranked defense.

Well you usually win time of possesion when you give up 80 yards in 2 and 3 play drives.

Okay, this is perfect! I'm still trying to learn things. What does 32:14 mean?

Okay, this is perfect! I'm still trying to learn things. What does 32:14 mean? 32 minutes 14 seconds. A game has only 60 minutes so the Chiefs had the majority of the Time of Possesion on average in each game.

I see. So I see Mecca's point. Not necessarily how long you have the ball, but what you do with it while you've got it that matters. And he's right. D needs work.

I can throw another mind boggling stat at you to make you shake your head. The Chiefs had the fewest plays ran on their defense in the NFL. Typically when that happens your ranked very highly in defense even if your defense isn't that good.

Denver had the 2nd fewest plays ran on them in the league. Which attributes largly into their high ranking in yards allowed, but why they have blah rankings in every other stat. Denvers defensive ranking is smoke and mirrors they aren't a top 10 defense, but things like that skew it.

So that shows you how many huge plays they gave up. They were on the field less than any other D in the league and still couldn't do anything.

Last year, the Chiefs gave up 85 plays over 20 yards. The NFL average is 55.
