Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel took over as interim head coach for the club and finished off the year with a 2-1 record and was promoted as head coach for the 2012 year. In his head coaching debut in week 15 at home against Green Bay the Chiefs pulled out the 19-14 home upset win as a +11 ½ point underdog. In week 17 against Denver the Chiefs held the Broncos to just 3 points in a game Denver needed to control their playoff destiny. Crennel has done a good job running the Chiefs defense in recent years. Kansas City allowed just 334 yards per game in 2010 and in 2011 the club was 11th in the NFL in total defense by allowing just 333 yards per game to their opponents. The huge problem for Kansas City is they need to fix an anemic offense that pushed across just 13 points per game which was 31st and second to worst in all of the NFL. They suffered major injuries to key impact players on offense in 2011 as starting quarterback Matt Cassel, running back Jamaal Charles and tight end Tony Mokeaki suffered season ending injuries. The team has improved their offense with the addition on running back Peyton Hillis and tight end Kevin Boss in the offseason. Matt Cassel’s numbers during last season were not impressive as the starter completed just 59.5% of his passes for 1713 yards with 10 touchdowns and 9 picks. Brady Quinn was acquired from Denver via free agency to serve as his backup.
