Heading into the 2011-2012 season, hopes are high for the Arrowhead faithful, whose Kansas City Chiefs are coming fresh off their first AFC West division title since 2003.
After a surprising 6-game turnaround from the abysmal 2009 campaign, many questions for the Chiefs' follow-up performance await an answer. Those questions include:
* Was the 2010 season a fluke?
* How will a young team handle the pressure to improve upon a division championship?
* Can Matt Cassel surpass last year's success without the guidance of Charlie Weiss?
* Will Jim Zorn pick up where Weiss left off?
Facing a schedule littered with powerhouse perennial playoff contenders, not to mention the defending Super Bowl champions, these questions look to be resolved sooner rather than later.
Let's have a look at the weekly matchups and see what fate may potentially lie ahead for the Chiefs.
