    Drive Charts: The Kansas City Chiefs' Offense
    By Chris Section: Campaign 2007
    Posted on November 27th, 2007





    Number of drives: 10 (Last game: 12)
    Average starting field position: 29.5 yard line (Last game: 35 yard line)
    Average number of plays per drive: 5.5 (Last game: 5)
    Average net yards gained per drive: 29 (Last game: 19.5)
    Average drive time: 3:13 (Last game: 2:42 minutes)
    Longest drive: 69 yards (Last game: 77 yards)
    Time of possesion: 32:13 (Last game: 32:23)

    Two different games. Two losses. I'll take the Colts game over Sunday's embarrassment any day of the week. One interesting stat to come out of this week is that Sunday's game was the first time this season that the Kansas City Chiefs had more first downs rushing the ball than passing the ball. The Chiefs had nine first downs via the rush and seven via the pass. We have 119 first downs passing and 45 rushing in 2007.
    This loss isn't hard to figure out. One missed field goal by Dave Rayner was the difference in the game and it even affected Herm Edwards' decision making at the end of the game. Herm made the wrong call but I still didn't trust Rayner to make that final kick. Going 3/12 on third downs doesn't help either.
    Like the Indy game, the Chiefs could not stop the opposing team's offense at the end of the game. The Raiders held the ball for the final 4:22 of the game. The Colts held the ball for 6:56 of the remaining 6:59 of the game to seal it. Our defense, which has been our rock this season, let us down in two consecutive games. Usually, when that happens, you chalk it up to a tired defense. Especially when the defense has held the opposing team in check for most of the game. There really is no excuse for the defense being tired, aside from poor conditioning. The Chiefs held the ball for nearly twice as long as the Raiders did in the fourth quarter.
    Is the Chiefs' defense feeling the weight of a losing season?

    Agreed.

    Since our offense isn't doing too well, they are giving the ball away alot..(not very good calls), in turn obviously our defense will be out on the field.

    Priest Holmes= my favorite Chiefs RB.. ever.

    The D shouldn't be tired since our O has had the ball longer than the other teams.

    I'm a little lost on this post. The thread title is asking what is happening to our D in the 4th qtr, yet you posted a drive chart for KC's offense.

    To answer your question though, two things have happened to the Chiefs D in the 4th quarter of the last 3 games.

    1. Peyton Manning and Brett Favre. They have made a career out of 4th qtr comebacks. We don't have a Qb of that caliber yet.
    2. Chiefs inability to stop the run.
