Stop the Presses! Another Stat shows the Chiefs had a great defense
The difference between the team in first, the Chiefs, and the team in last, the Bears, is one of the largest gaps we have ever seen in a stat. The Chiefs were producing turnovers at a three times faster clip than the Bears. The Bears produced turnovers at a horrid rate, 92 plays between turnovers means the Bears were averaging a turnover every 6 quarters. The Chiefs were producing a turnover ever half. As much as the NFL has turned into an offensive first league, it is hard win games when a team’s offense is not getting any extra possessions from defensive play. No matter how efficient a team’s offensive is, if the opposing offense if able to operate with equal or greater efficiency than the game is a loss. Defenses need to produce turnover for their teams to be successful. Defense may no longer win championships, but turnovers do.
