It would take a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician Antworten

or perhaps psychologist, to reconcile one of the biggest statistical oddities involving the Kansas City Chiefs this season.They have the NFL's worst defense by a longshot, allowing more than 450 yards per game, and they appear to be equally inept at stopping the run and the pass. Yet when they do manage to stop a team on first and second down, they suddenly become the league's best defense on third downs.Yes, that same sieve-like defense allows a conversion rate of a measly 23.8 percent.When asked to explain the disparity, Chiefs coach Andy Reid pointed to a sense of pride within his defense, a certain back-against-the-wall mentality that brings out their best. Players pointed to the same thing, though several of them acknowledged Wednesday the dichotomy makes little sense."I mean, you've just got to make stops when you need to," cornerback Kendall Fuller said. "When you're going up against the best of the best, they're going to make plays. You've just got to keep on, come back with the same confidence knowing you can make the next play."So far, the Chiefs have indeed made the stops when they needed. They kept Philip Rivers and Co. in check in a season-opening win over the Chargers, then made enough stops against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers, before using their bend-but-don't-break style to beat the 49ers at home.It was on display again Monday night against Denver.The Chiefs allowed 385 yards, which is downright stingy by their standards, but were especially good on those third downs. They allowed the Broncos to convert just two of their 11 tries Authentic Virgil Green Jersey , and none of their four in the second half, when Kansas City mounted its comeback in a 27-23 victory.Once again they bowed up when it mattered most.The Chiefs had just scored to get within 23-20 midway through the fourth quarter when they forced a three-and-out, stuffing Phillip Lindsay on first down and forcing a pair of incompletions. That stop gave them the ball back with plenty of time to go downfield for the go-ahead score.Then, when the Broncos raced back the other direction to get in position for a winning touchdown, the Chiefs held on third-and-10 and again on fourth down to seal the victory."When our defense needed to tighten up, they tightened up. Whether it was before the half or at the end of the game," Reid said. "Guys are making a good effort. Guys are stepping up at the right time and I'm glad they're doing that."To put into perspective just how good the Chiefs have been on third down, consider the fact that only two other teams — Baltimore and Philadelphia — are holding opponents below 30 percent conversion rates, and that Cincinnati, which ranks last in that category, allows more than double Kansas City at 57 percent.The Chiefs' rate of 23.8 percent is also a marked improvement over last season, when they were seventh-worst in the NFL at 41.4 percent, and has helped mask many of their deficiencies.Sure, they give up yards by the dozen. But they're also near the bottom of the league with just three takeaways, and the defense is part of the reason they're one of the NFL's most-penalized teams."We made the stops when we needed to (in Denver) and that should give the defense as a whole confidence," linebacker Justin Houston said. "I think we just need to put a complete game together. We still have yet to put a complete game together. That's our goal is to play the first quarter through the fourth quarter, a complete game of pure dominance. That's what we want."Maybe they should start with dominating on first and second downs.Notes: WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and outside linebacker Dee Ford (groin) practiced Wednesday. Both left last week's game against Denver and did not return. ... Safety Eric Berry (heel) remained out of practice. He has not been on the practice field since early in training camp. "We have great communication with him. We know his desire to be there," Reid said. "We're being smart with it. It's a long season."Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Is Hunter Henry the NFL’s Next Great Tight End? QB Baker Mayfield shows zero interest in Chargers’ playbook - Gavino Borquez“I didn’t look at their playbook as much as a I should have. It could have gone a little bit better Youth Caleb Sturgis Jersey , but at the same time, I’m prioritizing which playbooks I’m going to learn. No offense to them, but I’ve got a lot on my plate,” Mayfield said, per Sports Illustrated.Philip Rivers focused on little things this offseason - Eric Williams“Early on, the first five or six weeks of the season, there were too many missed plays,” Rivers said. “We weren’t playing terrible. We were 0-4, but it was just, ‘Gosh that was a huge first down. I just missed the throw.’ Or this was a huge opportunity with a touchdown but we missed it.All 32 NFL team's draft needs - Sam Monson & Steve PalazzoloThe middle of the Chargers defense needs help, starting on the defensive line where a premium interior disruptor is a must for their scheme. The linebacker position isn’t a disaster if Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown are healthy and living up to their potential, but another true coverage option is preferred in order to take that back-seven to the next level. Los Angeles has invested heavily in the interior of the offensive line in recent drafts, but it’s time to add youth outside at tackle where Russell Okung and Joe Barksdale are a mid-tier pair of bookends.Can PFF coverage grades at the college level predict coverage grades at the NFL level? - Eric Eager & George ChahrouriAt outside corner, a few players that fall into the most stable cluster are Mike Hughes, Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson. Each rank inside the top-seven on PFF’s big board and figure to remain on the outside.What is the fantasy shelf life of the top current tight ends? - Daniel KelleyIf I have to hitch my wagon to any tight end in the game for the future, it’s Henry. He raised his yards per route run from his first year to his second, and saw his targets increase by more than 25 percent. His PFF grade (an impressive 80.9 as a rookie) jumped to 88.0. Only rookie-year touchdown luck keeps the improvement from being as obvious as you’d expect. He’s the next stud.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
