The 2012 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 43rd season in the National Football league, the 53rd overall and the first full season under head coach Romeo Crennel, who served as the interim head coach for the final three games of the 2011 season following Todd Haley's termination. The Chiefs failed to rebound from their 7–9 record in 2011, and were eliminated from playoff contention in Week 12. Although sharing the same 2–14 record as the Jacksonville Jaguars for the worst record of the season, the Chiefs were statistically the worst team overall, and thereby "earned" the right to the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Low points[edit]

The 2012 team tied the 1977 (2–12) and 2008 (2–14) teams for the franchise worst seasons in terms of fewest wins.

They tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the NFL's worst record. The Chiefs have the #1 pick in the 2013 National Football League Draft based on strength of schedule.[1] It is the first time in franchise history the Chiefs had the #1 pick.[2]

Kansas City suffered from quarterback controversy all season and tied with the Arizona Cardinals for most interceptions (20) with Matt Cassel throwing 12 and his late season replacement Brady Quinn throwing 8.[3][4] The Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL in offensive passing.[5]

The Chiefs also lost 17 fumbles giving them 37 giveaways – tied for worst in the NFL with the New York Jets and Philadelphia[6] and tying with Philadelphia for the NFL's worst giveaway/takeaway differential with −24.[7]
