The Kansas City Chiefs haven't exactly been passing juggernauts thus far in the 2009 season. They're ranked 23rd in attempts and 27th in yards with a measly 970 yards passing over six games. Not exactly intimidating, huh?
As you can see in the chart above, they don't pass the ball very deep and even when they do their success rate is inconsistent. These numbers are a little surprising to me considering how often the Chiefs are put in third and long situations.
The Chiefs have had 85 third down attempts and passed the ball 70 times. 48 of those attempts have been longer than six yards, which is a time the team could do deep. They have successfully converted only eight of those attempts.
