The Chiefs are one of the few teams in the league that have a worse record than the Panthers, as they have only won a single game thus far.
The Panthers are coming off of their third victory of the season and will look to maintain that momentum at Arrowhead Stadium.
Each team will more than likely be picking within the top eight picks come April's draft, so this game could be viewed in terms of future draft position.
As currently composed, both the Panthers and Chiefs are a few pieces away from making a run at the playoffs.
While the postseason is not in the cards for either organization, that does not mean that this game is meaningless to the players, coaches and fanbases.
