Chiefs give fans Christmas win

One more win and the Kansas City Chiefs are the AFC West Division champions.

The Chiefs came out on fire and quarterback Matt Cassel had a nearly perfect quarterback rating at halftime. This game was over early.

In fact, the only real “drama” of the game came when Cassel was taken out of the game, then brought back in after a Brodie Croyle interception. After all the “bench Cassel, we want Brodie” talk at the beginning of the season, I’m sure that ovation had to feel pretty good when Cassel came back in.

Playoffs? Not likely for Chiefs right now

When the Kansas City Chiefs started the month of November I thought to myself, “Self, these first two games are going to be huge.”

With a pair of road games at the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos I thought again to myself, “Self, the Chiefs had better get ONE of these two games. They don’t have to get both, but they need to get one.”

Apparently, I should have had that conversation with the Chiefs instead of myself.

Chiefs out-Raider the Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have a reputation. At big moments in games – just when it looks like things are going to go Oakland’s way – a crucial penalty will happen. Then another, then another, then another.

Sunday, that became the Kansas City Chiefs – ironically enough, against the Raiders.

Well that was unnecessarily dramatic.
