So here we go Chiefs Nation…
Here’s our chance to get some payback for last year’s playoff loss to the Ravens of Baltimore. Yes, it was ugly – 30-7 Ravens over the Kansas City Chiefs in their only playoff game last season.
Uh, the Chiefs, not the Ravens.
Remember? Joe Flaco had a nice day with 265 yards in the air, two touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 115.4. Outstanding. Our guy Matt the FRANCHISE, uh, 9 of 18 passing, three interceptions, no touchdowns, 70 yards passing and a quarterback rating of 20.4.
WHAT? THAT CAN’T BE RIGHT!
Oh, it is. Damn.
Chiefs Coach Todd Haley has made it clear that last week was a "practice game." This week Will be different. Matt will play more, the starters will stay in longer. The Chiefs are going to show us something tonight. Right?
The NFL’s number one rushing team, our three (count ’em) standout receivers (including our number one draft pick). Our new tougher defense. The whole nine yards. Tonight.
In the meantime the Chiefs have been made a 7 point underdog. That’s huge in pre-season.
Usually the home team is a 2 to 4 point favorite, not 7. That’s only if Vegas thinks you really stink or your starting quarterback is out. In our case they think, uh, both. Matt will play and it won’t matter, they think. Hey, the Chiefs are going to show up tonight. It ain’t practice.
Somebody better tell the Ravens.
