Stats Say Chiefs Should Be Able To Run The Ball On The Colts

The Kansas City Chiefs enter Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with the third ranked rush offense with about 160 yards per game.

We saw what happened last week when the Chiefs get both Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles running well -- 31-10 blowout against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs should expect to be able to run the ball against the Colts, who hold the NFL's fourth worst rush defense. They're giving up an average of about 150 yards per game.

This is significant for the Chiefs because it plays right into what one of their game plans should be -- keeping the ball away from Peyton Manning.

Time of possession, first downs, rushing yards...all those will be significant for this year. The stat of third ranked rushed offense vs. 29th ranked rush defense will be the key to the game, in my opinion.

It's a big week for the Chiefs as they look to pound it out against the Colts on Sunday.
