Where did Dwayne Bowe come from? The Chiefs wide receiver is coming off a 13-catch, 170-yard, three-touchdown game. I’ve been saying since early in the year, with a good defense and strong running game, the Chiefs will be in most games. Now that the passing game is coming along, it’s really not a surprise now that they are primed to take the AFC West title.
After that performance in Seattle, it was good enough to move him into a tie for 6th in the AFC with 58 receptions, 4th with 885 yards; and 1st in the NFL in touchdowns with 14. That is just off the pace for the league’s most receiving touchdowns through 11 games of Randy Moss’ 16 with New England in 2007.
Plus, Bowe’s 14 touchdown catches broke the franchise single-season record of 12 set by Chris Burford in 1962. Bowe has been on a tear since he dropped what would have been a go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter at Indianapolis in the fifth week of the season.
The Chiefs lost that game 19-9 and since then, the team has gone just one game with fewer than 20 points…a 13-10 win over the Bills. The Chiefs are averaging 29.7 points in the last seven game since that loss at Indy.
