However, as the top-seeded Chiefs enter the AFC playoffs, they're coming off one of their best defensive games of the year -- a 35-3 lambasting of the Raiders -- and, consequently, Jones' streak was stopped. He didn't even record a tackle. Still, he believes the K.C. D has elevated its play at the perfect time.
"We know what we're capable of," said Jones via the the Kansas City Star's Lynn Worthy following Sunday's win. "We knew we had to make a statement this game."
"Hell of a game for those guys," Jones said of the defense that forced four turnovers and held an opponent to single digits for the first time this year. "I know I'm talking in third person, but hell of a game. Three points! You can't beat that."
As for Jones, he'll look to terrorize quarterbacks in the postseason, where he has recorded four combined tackles across two playoff games -- losses in each of the past two seasons. He'll also be searching for his first playoff sack following a stellar run.
Dating back to 1982 when sacks became an official NFL statistic, only Jones has recorded a sack in 11 straight games. He surpassed Denver's Simon Fletcher and Dallas' DeMarcus Ware, who were tied at 10 with Jones. Jones, however, was the only player to have accomplished feat within the same season.
