Last week: 32 (+0)

Record: 1-8

Still the worst team in the NFL. I think the Chiefs are more likely than they are to win another game the rest of the way. They rank dead last in both yards per play differential and rate of sustaining drives differential. In yards per play differential, they are at -1.1. No one else is worse than -0.9. In rate of sustaining drives they are -14.8%, no one else is worse than -9.5%.

The Chiefs have much bigger turnover issues than they do. For all of his faults, Blaine Gabbert’s overly conservative style of play is not one that causes him to turn the ball over a ton. However, turnovers are much more inconsistent. If the Chiefs can avoid losing the turnover battle, they can be competitive, whereas the Jaguars have avoided losing the turnover battle (just -3 on the season) and have not been close to being competitive, as they have a league worst -119 points differential. The Chiefs almost knocked off the Steelers last week because they were able to avoid losing the turnover battle. If they happens a couple more times this year, they’ll win a game.
