Here we go Chiefs fans, almost a do or die game…
No officially it won’t knock the Chiefs out, but the blow could be hard to overcome. So this really is a MUST WIN game.
We all know Denver is a pretty bad team. But so was Cleveland and they nearly beat us on the road. As did 0-forever the Bills. The Chiefs have yet to prove they can win road games, so far, not so good. This team should be 7-1. The Colts straight up beat us. Simple as that. And we ran out of gas against Houston and Oakland.
Our pass defense seems to break down in the third quarter.
Against Oakland our run defense stayed up until the end of the game, though we lost. Those long throws at the end of the game seem to wear out our pass D.
The Chiefs boast they have "the best running game."
It is not.
Inside the red zone we failto run the ball well almost every time. Our touchdowns in the red zone have mostly come from the Franchise, Matt Cassel’s, passes. But not often enough though. As I stated last week, use Jackie Battle on short downs deep in Denver territory. He’s fresh and stronger than Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. Jones in fact seems to be fading.
The answer is Dexter. With him back (let’s hope he is), the Chiefs will win this game.
Without him it will be tough again.
The Chiefs at 6-3 will be hard to catch. At 5-4, say hello to the Chargers.
My pick? With Dexter: The Chiefs win 28-17.
By the way, Dwayne Bowe, can you give the smoke a rest Sunday? Jesus, wake up!
