Just going through some stats.
Not counting the Bears and Packers who haven't played yet, the Steelers are the only team in the NFL that have allowed less points than the Chiefs so far this season. The Chiefs have allowed only 38 points to the Steelers 33 and if the 49ers wouldn't have scored that trash touchdown at the end of regulation, the Chiefs would actually have the lowest scoring defense in the entire NFL!
To top it all off, Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones are both in the top ten in rushing and are both on pace to rush for over 1000 yards!
Jamaal Charles is on pace for 1269 yards and Thomas Jones is on pace for 1156 yards. To have two backs blow by 1000 yards this year would make us a very respected force in the NFL. They are currently the #1 rushing team in all of football with 160 yards per game.
Jamaal is currently leading the league in runs over 20 yards and is leading all running backs in yards per attempt at 7.0
MORE FUN FACTS:
- Tamba Hali has 3.5 sacks and currently ranked 7th in the NFL. There is 5 guys ahead of him tied for second at 4, following Clay Mathews who has 6. If Tamba keeps it up, he could end near the league lead in this category.
- Brandon Flowers is playing like one of the leagues finest. Despite not getting thrown towards often, he is second in the entire league in pass deflections with 7 and second in the league in interceptions with 2.
- Dustin Colquitt is second in the league in punts inside the 20 with 8.
3-0 and with a two game lead in the division. Sounds good to me. We now have two weeks to prepare for the Colts. GO CHIEFS!!!!!!
- Tony Romo and Tom Brady are the only QB's in the league who have been sacked less than Matt Cassel. Matt has been sacked twice in three games while Romo and Brady have only been sacked once.

All great signs that this team is a real legit football team. Hope they can keep it up throughout the season.
These are excellent stats. Our Chiefs sure are impressive this year.
The colts will provide a real test for our guys. I hope that with our two-headed monster run game, and our vastly improved Defense, that we can go to 4-0!
Rattle Manning early!!!! Do to him what we did to Rivers, it could be the same result.
yes the offensive line deserves alot of credit not only for jc and tj but for protecting cassel too, these guys often get overlooked but they are doing great
Mathis and Freeny will be a huge test for our oline just as Manning will be a huge test for our D
Just as Haley pointed out he was on a 3-0 team in 2003..no body remembers that team.
Just saying we need to continue our aggressive playing until week 17.
Most underrated football team in the NFL hands down. We won't be favored all year...unless we beat the colts.
It starts with the Offensive line
