The Kansas City Chiefs team that beat Jacksonville yesterday was the first truly legit team the club has fielded in a decade, says sports scribe Craig Glazer.
“Well, you know if you looked at my picks, I picked Kansas City to beat Jacksonville so I wasn’t surprised,” Glazer says. “But I was surprised by the quality of the game. This clearly – from every aspect of the game – was their best win in several years. Even with all the wins in the Western Division title season I don’t remember them playing this well on the road. They dominated, even though it was a bad team. If you look at the entire NFL schedule yesterday, Kansas City was the only team with a lopsided score like this.”
“After yesterday’s win I think this coming up game with Dallas – which won yesterday too – will be a critical game. Because if Kansas City can play as well as they did yesterday and beat Dallas at home, it would mean that this team has moved in a direction of someone to keep an eye on.
“Yesterday’s game, with all the plusses and minuses of playing Jacksonville, was the most I’ve been impressed with the Chiefs in like a decade.”
As for Glazer’s 7-9 prediction for the homeboys on Saturday…
“After seeing yesterday, if they beat Dallas and play like they did yesterday, I would say they could be a wild card contender.”
