Taking some time to reflect Youth Chris Jones Jersey , I canít believe we are already at Week 7. The season seems to be flying along and this is some of the most fun Iíve had watching the Kansas City Chiefs in my lifetime. Welcome back to chiefStats, where we cover a few statistical topics leading up to the Chiefs games.Last week, we asked the question of whether or not Tom Brady was finally on the downswing. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, Brady answered that question by showing us he still has plenty left in the tank.Moving forward, Iím going to include a quick overview of the Chiefsí opponentís stats before we get into the more detailed items:Bengals overviewNow letís see what kind of dirt we can dig up on the Bengals.1. Daytime DaltonI had remembered hearing rumors about how the Bengals quarterback, Andy Dalton, struggled in clutch situations. I have no idea where I had heard this, and I honestly could have just imagined it. Either way White Cameron Erving Jersey , I found some pretty interesting information regarding Daltonís day/night splits.Dalton has played significantly worse in night games than in day games. This situation has led to some pretty hilarious nicknames for Dalton like Daytime Dalton and Daywalker Dalton.Notice the eight-point drop in passer rating? Thatís the difference between Aaron Rodgers (100.1) and Alex Smith (91.9) so far in 2018. I know Smith is a good quarterback, but Iíd much rather face Smith than Rodgers.2. Marvin Lewis tooBut itís not all Daltonís fault. In fact, the Bengals problems at night go beyond Daltonís era with the Bengals.Marvin Lewis has not put forth good showings on Sunday Night Football games during his time in Cincinnati.I was surprised to see Lewis has been coaching for the Bengals since 2003. At that time in my life I was a junior in high school and probably sitting in my parents basement playing the Gamecube (seriously underrated system).3. Red-zone comparisonsAs the season progresses, it is becoming more and more clear that if teams want to beat the Chiefs they will have to win in a shootout. In shootouts, teams who settle for field goals more often usually lose.This is why red-zone performance will be a key stat for every Chiefs game going forward. With the current version of the Chiefs team, all that stuff between the 20-yard lines really doesnít matter.Once again, weíll be using Bill Connellyís advanced stats guide.Looking at the matchup between the Chiefs red-zone defense and the Bengals red-zone offense, it appears as though both teams are evenly matched going into this game. This tells me anything could happen when the Bengals are in scoring position.If the Chiefs want to win White Sammy Watkins Jersey , they are going to need to hold the Bengals to field goals. Looking at both teamsí numbers, it could be a coin toss every time the Bengals get into the red zone.Now letís look at the other side of the ball:When the Chiefs have the ball in the red zone, they have a large advantage against the Bengals defense, which hasnít been particularly great in the red zone.With the Bengals offense evenly matched with the Chiefs defense in the red zone, and the Chiefs offense being significantly better than the Bengals defense in the red zone, we could see a game where the Bengals simply canít keep up with the Chiefs offense.4. Third DownThe Bengalsí third-down defense has left a lot to be desired so far in 2018:The column on the right shows the Bengals third-down defense, and orange stands for bad. The Bengals third-down defense has been bad if you couldnít tell.The Bengals rank in the bottom third in nearly every single success rate statistic as it relates to third-down defense. The Chiefs have an above-average third-down offense so far in 2018 and we could see the Bengals struggle to get off the field on third down repeatedly Sunday night.5. Defensive penaltiesThis one should be short and sweet:With the Bengals defense having so many penalty yards, penalties could be a big factor in tonightís game.The Bengals defense has also allowed the eighth-most first downs by penalty in the NFL.The way I see this shaking out is the Bengals defense will commit a dirty or late hit here or there White Harrison Butker Jersey , and their defense may also be susceptible to pass interference calls. This will definitely be something Iíll be watching for tonight.So ends this weekís episode of chiefStats ó what are your keys to the game? Each practice day, the Kansas City Chiefs will release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs travel to Cleveland this weekend to take on the Browns.Here is the Chiefsí second official injury report of the week:BrownsSome notesAfter some odd circumstances Wednesday in which the Chiefs said linebacker Justin Houston would practice but didnít, he was at practice but limited on Thursday. So was fellow linebacker Anthony Hitchens. My gut tells me it will be a stretch for both players to go against Cleveland. Safety Eric Berry missed his 82nd day of practice with a sore heel. Center Mitch Morse is still in the concussion protocol.Wide receiver Tyreek Hill was limited after practice fully on Wednesday. Thatís not exactly a good sign but not necessarily a bad one either. Letís see how the Chiefs list Hill on Friday. I still expect him to play, as of now.Safety Daniel Sorensen once again practiced Thursday but no news to report as far as his activation goes.Browns starting safety Damarious Randall has not had a full practice since Week 6, and he played through ankle and groin injuries last Sunday. The Browns gave him another day off Thursday. Like Randall, Browns starting center JC Tretter had Wednesday and Thursday off last week before practicing limitedly Friday and ultimately playing Sunday. Iím expecting the same this week.Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway looks to have injured his ankle during practice. He was added to the report with a limited status on Thursday.
