Kansas City Chiefs: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 27 (+0)

Record: 1-2

Defense is key for this team. If they can play good defense, it will allow them to unleash Jamaal Charles and take the pressure off of Matt Cassel. Charles had a huge game last week and looked every bit the back he was in 2010 before his injury, only Todd Haley is no longer the coach so they are now utilizing him properly. However, the defense was horrendous in their first 2 games and holding the secretly not so secretly terrible Saints to 24 points isn’t as big of an accomplishment as it used to be. Overall, the Chiefs rank 26th in yards per play differential.


RB Jamaal Charles: Rushed for 233 yards (151 after contact) and a touchdown on 33 carries, 1 broken tackle, 6 catches for 55 yards on 7 attempts, 1 drop

RG Jon Asamoah: Allowed 1 sack and 1 quarterback hurry on 47 pass block snaps, run blocked for 41 yards on 8 carries

LOLB Justin Houston: 3 sacks, 1 quarterback hit, and 3 quarterback pressures on 30 pass rush snaps, 1 solo tackle, 4 stops

K Ryan Succop: 7 kickoff, 2 touchbacks, 67.1 yards per kickoff, 21.6 opponent average start line, 6/6 FG (25, 31, 34, 38, 43, 45)


WR Steve Breaston: 1 catch for 2 yards on 3 attempts on 33 pass plays, 1.0 YAC per catch, 1 drop, 1 interception when thrown to

LE Allen Bailey: Did not record a pressure on 22 pass rush snaps, no tackles

CB Brandon Flowers: Allowed 6 catches for 65 yards and 2 touchdowns on 9 attempts, 5 solo tackles, 1 stop
