Upset Possibility: Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs looked dismal in Week 17, slipping up to the Oakland Raiders 31-10 at Arrowhead Stadium, while head coach Todd Haley chose to play quarterback Matt Cassel throughout the game.
Yet as disappointing as this loss was for the Chiefs, Kansas City still finds itself in the playoffs this season after a remarkable year in 2010.
Unfortunately, they do have to face the Baltimore Ravens.
Yes, the Ravens will be taking a trip to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night, in a game that is quite possibly the hardest fixture of the Wild Card round to decipher at this point in time, due to the distinct similarities of both teams involved.
Like the Seattle Seahawks, however, the Chiefs do have home-field advantage, a factor that should benefit Kansas City immensely.
As we all know, Arrowhead Stadium is one of the loudest places in all of the NFL, and seeing as though the Chiefs have spent what feels like an eternity outside of January football, you can bet your house that a sea of red will be loud and proud.
Other than that, Kansas City does have the rushing advantage over the Ravens. Ranked first in the league, running back Jamaal Charles should pose a serious threat to John Harbaugh's defense, which is ranked fifth overall.
This should be a tightly-contested game, but one that may act as an upset either way depending on the outcome.
