Chiefs Earn the Top Spot in The Ringer's Projected Offensive Rankings

Kansas City fielded the top offense in the NFL last season

The folks at The Ringer ranked every offense in the NFL on Monday in anticipation of the upcoming season, and following a campaign in which the Kansas City Chiefs led the league in both scoring (29.2 points) and total offense (413.6 yards), the reigning Super Bowl champions nabbed the top spot.

Here's a portion of what the article's author, Sheil Kapadia, wrote about Kansas City:

"Surprised? I didn't think so. The Chiefs had the best offense last season, and it wasn't close. They ranked first in expected points added per drive, and the difference between them and the second-ranked Eagles was the same as the difference between the Eagles and the 16th-ranked Packers."

Indeed, the Chiefs' offense was nothing short of prolific in 2022. Kansas City racked up the most total yards (7,032), touchdowns (61), first downs (408) and points (496) of any team in the league. The Chiefs also recorded the most passing yards (5,250) and passing plays of 25+ yards (49) of any team. In fact, those 49 big passing plays were the third-most for any team since at least 1994, trailing only the 2019 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (54) and the 2018 Chiefs (52).

Additionally, since quarterback Patrick Mahomes became the Chiefs' starter in 2018, Kansas City has never finished a season outside of the top six in either scoring or total offense. The Chiefs have ranked as the top scoring offense twice (2018 and 2022) and the top overall offense three times (2018, 2020 and 2022) during that span.

It's all to say that the Chiefs have routinely fielded one of the league's best offenses, and according to Kapadia's article, Kansas City once again enters this upcoming season with the top scoring attack in the league.
