We have finally reached the Chiefs bye week and boy does it come at the right time!  That is one of my all time favorite NFL cliches but this year they nailed it.  After Monday's 54-51 loss to the Rams and the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, its the perfect time to take a deep deep breath and get rested before the final month of the regular season.  December is going to be crucial so its time to rest up, heal up and get ready for the final month of the regular season.  Before we carve the turkey and dress the stuffing, lets take a look back at what made that game against the Rams so darn special.

 

105- The Chiefs not only set a franchise record for most combined points in a game but they also set a Monday Night Football record for the most combined points in the history of Monday Night Football.  It's also the first time the Chiefs have cracked the century mark in combined points in team history.  Their previous record was 99 when they lost 51-48 in Overtime to the Seahawks back in November of 1983.

4- The Chiefs now have 4 different 40 point games this season.  The record is 5 set way back in 2003.  With 5 regular season games to go and TWO of them against the Raiders, the Chiefs have a great shot to break that record!

9- The Chiefs have 9 games of 30 or more points but they also have 9 games with Patrick Mahomes throwing for 300 or more yards which is now a franchise record.  Every time you turn around, Mahomes is setting some sort of new KC record.

11- Tyreek Hill now has 11 receiving touchdowns this year and caught his 15th touchdown of 50 yards or more in his career.  Hill is now 1 behind Gayle Sayers for the most touchdowns of 50 or more yards before the age of 25.  He's going to want to get paid soon!

7,000- Mitchell Schwartz has played in over 7,000 consecutive snaps dating back to 2012.  All told he has played in 7,061 straight snaps for both the Chiefs and Browns.  Congrats Mitch on a great accomplishment!
