The Kansas City Chiefs 31-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins is one for the Books
Posted by Andrew McKillop on November 7, 2011
The Kansas City Chiefs 31-3 loss to the winless Miami Dolphins was an anomaly. There’s nothing else that can be said about that.
The Chiefs entered the game with a four game win streak, and it looked as if they fully recovered from what was one of the NFL’s worst ever starts to season. But on their home field, the Chiefs were dismantled by the 0-7 Dolphins.
In the history of the NFL, there have been 58 teams that have lost a game by 28 points or more, after they entered a game with a four game or more winning streak (going back to previous seasons when applicable).
Only 16 of those 58 teams lost such a game at home, with only three of those teams losing to an opponent with a losing record. Checkout the list below.
Bold: Losing Record
Now we we’ll examine another rare occurrence of ineptitude by the Chiefs this Sunday. The Chiefs loss marks only the 3rd time in NFL history that a team with a four game or more winning streak, lost to a winless team this late in the season. The Chiefs are the only team in such a situation to lose by double-digit points.
The Chiefs are also only the third team in NFL history, to lose to a winless team with seven losses or more, by 28 points or more.
