Kansas City Chiefs: What You Need to Know Heading into Week 16

Every year, a team begins firing on all cylinders just before the NFL playoffs peak over the horizon. In 2013, that team is Andy Reid's Kansas City Chiefs (11-3). 

The walrus-'stached Kool-Aid Man has Arrowhead addicts running around like they're on sugar highs. And for good reason. 

But the regular season isn't etched in stone yet; neither is Kansas City's postseason positioning. 

The Chiefs will square off against Andrew Luck's Indianapolis Colts (9-5) on Sunday. Coincidentally, if the playoffs began this weekend, Reid, Bob Sutton and Co. would find themselves conspiring against the same stable of players. The only difference? The Chiefs would be the ones racking up frequent flyer miles—an all-important factor that can pen the final chapter to Kansas City's fairytale season. 

Arrowhead's favorite 53 aren't content with a mere playoff berth, and the same holds true for their perusing play-callers.

On the heels of last Sunday's heart-hammering 23-point win, eight storylines lay the groundwork for Week 16's home finale.
