All I've heard all week is how KC is gonna get their revenge on Denver Sunday. We get Dex back! Haley hates them! Sounds a little like we're already dismissing the Broncos. But I remember 49-29. I remember 35-0 in the 2nd quarter. I remember how Orton played. Point is this: With arguably the most important game in the last three or four years coming up next week, the Chiefs had better not be looking past Denver. The things working in KC's favor is the whupping they took just three weeks ago being fresh in their minds. Having Haley's back may be a motivator for the team as well. Win one for the coach? I hope that's the mindset.
As far as the trap goes, SD is kind of in the same boat. Big favorites to beat OAK. BIG game next week that will kill their season if they lose. I'm just putting it out there. Both teams need to focus on this week (well, SD can take the week off).
It's so nice to be talking about playoffs in December, isn't it?
