Most Defensive Points In Chiefs History

As we’ve waited for the start of the 2011 NFL season, we didn’t spend the last four months twiddling our thumbs. Always in the search for something different, we’ll bring you some special statistics, some unusual stats.

Today’s example is our list of the top 10 scorers on defense over the 51-year history of the franchise.

These numbers do not include any scores on special teams (returns, blocked punt TDs or safeties); just scores on defense. For instance, LB Bobby Bell had 9 TDs in his career, with 8 on defense. The other came when he returned an onside-kickoff attempt for a touchdown.

It’s interesting that the Chiefs OLB in the Pro Football Hall of Fame from two very different eras scored the most defensive points – Bell and Derrick Thomas.

Here are the numbers:
