Merry Christmas Chiefs Fans
For over a month NFL pundits championed San Diego's Super Chargers as AFC West Champs. "They will absolutley catch Kansas City," PTI's Tony Kornheiser said two weeks ago. This foresight was echoed by just about every suit in the NFL universe but on Sunday, a different book was written: Kansas City Chiefs, AFC West Champs.
Kansas City demolished the "re-surgent" Titans Sunday inside a frigid Arrowhead Stadium. Tennesse showed up to this game with intentions of dancing and fighting, and they were quickly shown the door by a Chiefs team who is really starting to put it together in all phases of the game. What more could a Chiefs team ask for this Christmas season? A loss by San Diego to the lowely Bengals gave every Chiefs fan something extra in their stocking this Yuletide.
And now with one week to go, the Chiefs have but one thing left to play for: To destroy the Oakland Raiders. Thats right, the Chiefs must not rest their starters next week with a playoff appearence already sewn onto their jerseys. KC has a chance to go 8-0 at home for the first time since 2003 as well as cementing the 3 seed in the AFC Playoffs which would be quite beneficial. It will be interesting to see how this team handles the pressure of winning a division title after the worst three year stretch in team history.
