AFC West Third Quarter Grades: Kansas City is pulling away

Through three quarters of the season, the Chiefs have all but clinched the AFC West. No, it’s not official yet, but Sunday’s dominant performance showed just how far the Chiefs sit ahead of the rest of the division right now.

They still are quite flawed for a Super Bowl contender, however. While this team puts up gaudy offensive stats, their run defense is almost non-existent. That will definitely catch up to them once playoffs roll around and they need to get through New England or Baltimore.

Key Stat: 8.8

That’s Patrick Mahomes’ average throw depth this year, per Sports Info Solutions.
