Sound strange? It is the most common theme that the best thing going for the Chiefs is there schedule.
That, however, may not be the case at all. Let's take a closer look.
Denver: The Broncos are getting some injured players back. They have no chance at making the playoffs this year. They will not be able to climb over three teams. They are, however, a competitive group of professional athletes with talented players. They will not roll over for the Chiefs. This is a division game, and the Chiefs will have to fight very hard to come out with a victory.
Arizona: This is a game at Arrowhead that the Chiefs should win. They have been solid at home and the Cardinals have struggled on the road, and home.
Seattle: A lot of this will depend on the health of their quarterback situation. That said, it is never easy to play in Seattle. They have one of the better home field advantages in the NFL. The Chiefs can make no assumption of walking out of there with a win.
Denver: At least this one is in Arrowhead, but that means much less with a division opponent. Denver may very well turn their fortunes around and they have the talent to do it. They have brought sadness to KC many times.
San Diego: Unless they can block a couple of punts (which they might), and do not see the Chiefs winning this game. Make no mistake, the Chargers are in this race until the end. This game is on the road and Phillip Rivers is hotter than any quarterback in the NFL right now.
St. Louis: Another road game that looked like a "W" in the beginning. Things change in the NFL very quickly. Sam Bradford is showing he was worth the number one pick and they are playing good football. Also, like the Chiefs, they are young and getting better.
Tennessee: The Titans are looking as good as any team in the NFL. Now, they've added Randy Moss. It remains to be seen what the effect that will have, but it could be lethal.
Oakland: Last game, at home. Again, division game. The Raiders are clearly a team on the rise and could continue to get better as the season continues. This means the Chiefs might see a much different team than we thought earlier in the season.
