Chiefs Defensive Performance Last Season Makes NFL's "Top Donuts"

The folks over at NFL.com had some fun with National Donut Day

It's June, which means besides players running around in shorts and a few press conferences each week during OTAs, there's not a whole lot going on around the NFL.

That said, the folks over at NFL.com had a special way of celebrating "National Donut Day," which involved one of the Kansas City Chiefs defensive performances last season.

Here's what Jim Reineking of NFL.com had to say about his article titled, "NFL's Top Donuts."

"June 3 marks #NationalDonutDay, and to mark this special date on the calendar we take a look back at some of the most famous 'donuts' in NFL history."

There were eight "donuts" listed, and here's the description of the one that involved the Chiefs:

"86 times during the Super Bowl era (since 1966) a quarterback has posted a donut for a passer rating. This list includes six Pro Football Hall of Famers (Bob Griese, Johnny Unitas, Len Dawson, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath and Warren Moon), and one quarterback sure to be enshrined in Canton once eligible, Peyton Manning. Manning's donut passer rating happened in the Broncos' 29-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last season. Manning completed five of 20 passes for 35 yards with four interceptions before leaving the game with an injury."
