With a victory last Monday night against San Diego the Kansas City Chiefs now stand at 4-3 and tied for the division lead. The next two weeks on their schedule show 2 teams with a combined 2-12 record. So 6-3 is not at all out of reach for the Chiefs, but what lies ahead could be the very thing that keeps them from repeating as division champs.
Week 11-15 the Chiefs will have 5 opponents coming in with a combined record of 26-10. They will face the Patriots, Steelers, Jets, Bears, and Packers and only two of the 5 will be home games. I think the Chiefs are very likely to lose every single one of these games, in fact I would not pick them to win any of these games.
While the Chiefs have seemed to have split personalities this season, I do not think they are a playoff caliber team. If I am wrong then these 5 games will prove what the Chiefs are made of. No more speculation will be necessary. Does anyone give the Chiefs a chance to come out ahead on this 5 game gauntlet?
