After the first two preseason games, Chiefs fans might feel a slight bit of worry. Kansas City has lost both games and, at times, looked very sloppy on the field. For fans, it's easy to write this off as a bad preseason, remembering that these games essentially mean nothing.

For players, though, these games could be the difference between riding the bench and making a name for themselves.

Kansas City will take on the St. Louis Rams in their third game this preseason. This Governor’s Cup matchup will likely mean a lot more for the players than it will for fans.

Here are nine starters who need to prove themselves against the Rams and ride that performance into the regular season for their sake and for the sake of the team.
