Chiefs find new ways to break NFL records of futility

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City fans take solace in 2012 team ranking first on a list. Then are reminded of Bill Polian rumors.

There is no better way to describe the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs than Sunday's game, because the Chiefs are bad even though Jamaal Charles is so very, very good. Kansas City lost to the Colts 20-13, despite rushing for 352 yards, the most rushing yards ever in a loss. That's really saying something too, considering that there was a long time when all teams did was run the football. The Chiefs have reverted back to the days before the forward pass.

The previous high mark of 320 yards is so old that it was set by the Cleveland Rams, way back in 1944. Kansas City is breaking "loss records" from the war era!

Charles carried the ball 22 times for 226 yards and a touchdown, though he did lose a fumble as well, so it may be that the Chiefs are rubbing off on him. Overall, Kansas City gained 507 yards and still lost. There is no "Suck for Luck" this year, and they are clearly don't have any luck as it is.

Oh, Chiefs.
