Game DayThread - Game 5: Kansas City Chiefs vs Carolina Panthers

Josh KnoxCorrespondent IOctober 5, 2008

So here is game 5:

The Chiefs are 1-3 after they manhandled the Broncos last week and this week travel to the 3-1 Carolina Panthers. This is a big game for both teams, but especially for the Chiefs as there is a big difference between 1-4 and 2-3 heading into the bye week.

One of the keys for the Chiefs will be to make sure their running game gets on track early. This is what happened last week and because of that the Chiefs were able to control the tempo of the game and not get into a shootout with Denver.

Carolina will be looking to do a lot of the same things as the Chiefs this game. They want to control the clock with the running game and play good defense. You got to watch out though because I have seen them do this and BAM,  hit you with a play-action pass to Steve Smith for a long TD.

So, if the Chiefs can get that running game going (like they have for the last game and a half) and the defense comes to play and creates some turnovers I think we have a shot here. The Chiefs MUST win the turnover battle if they want to stand a chance.

As always please post any comments, pictures, or whatever in the comment section below before, during or after the game. If you see something that you hated (or loved) let the rest of us know!

I’ll be yelling from the couch this week and hoping very much for a Chiefs victory.
