Kareem Hunt equals 57-year-old record in loss


Such was the scoring Monday night, you knew plenty of history was going to be made.

And Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt did his part.

Via Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, Hunt’s 21-yard touchdown reception from Patrick Mahomes helped him match a 57-year-old record.

It gave him seven receiving touchdowns and seven rushing touchdowns in his team’s first 11 games. The last player to do so was Colts Hall of Famer Lenny Moore, who you don’t automatically think of being part of one of the league’s most dynamic offenses (though Moore was certainly a dynamic player).

In 1961, Moore ran for 648 yards and seven touchdowns, and caught passes for 728 yards and eight scores. Hunt has 824 rushing yards and 378 receiving yards so far.

  1. Great Player. Chiefs have a special offense. Too bad their defense is not good. Can they beat Pittsburgh in the playoffs? I think if they can get past the initial first win they have a shot. They will struggle with a team like NO, LA, PITT. Teams that can strike fast and put up lots of points. Who knows. None of the teams this year of the 12 currently in the playoffs really have a defense except the Bears and even the Bears at the end of the games give up big points and keep teams in it. I wouldn’t be shocked at all if LA, NO, PITT or KC went to the SB or if they lost in the playoffs running into a team with a good defense. It’s a weird year. When you give up 51 or 54 points. That should be a concern for both teams.

  2. Does anyone else think the league keeps to many stats? If you dig deep enough, just about any game can break some obscure record in some way.
