During the current 2023 NFL season, the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense, which was once considered the most explosive in the league with quarterback Patrick Mahomes as a perennial MVP contender, has not lived up to that reputation. This fact is highlighted by a particularly striking statistic.
According to a tweet by ex-NFL coach Blake Williams, the Kansas City Chiefs have scored less points than the Cleveland Browns this season. Surprisingly, the Browns have had to rely on three different quarterbacks – Deshaun Watson, P.J. Walker, and rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robison.
“On X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, Williams shared an astonishing fact: despite having the same record, the Browns have scored more points this year than the Chiefs. ‘Here’s a crazy stat for you,’ he wrote.”
The Chiefs and Mahomes must be devastated with the news of their inability to outperform a team that lacks a consistent quarterback. The NFL community expressed their thoughts on social media, and it’s not a pleasant sight.
Despite their 7-3 record and division lead, the Chiefs’ chances of defending their Super Bowl title have taken a hit. Their dominant defense this season may have helped them get this far, but this recent development poses a challenge to their ultimate goal.
