Good morning everyone. I'm settling into my seat in the press box right now awaiting the start of the Week 17 game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium. There are only a couple of players on the field warming up right now as we're about two hours from game time.
We'll receive the inactive list around 10:30 a.m. (Arrowhead time) but we don't expect any surprises. The Chiefs have just one name on the injury report -- S Donald Washington -- and he is doubtful to play.
The question for this game is whether and to what extent the Chiefs will rest their players. They've clinched the AFC West and a home playoff game but they're still playing for the third or fourth playoff seed. A win or an Indianapolis Colts loss gives the Chiefs the third seed.
By this evening we'll find out the Chiefs opponent and playoff schedule. It feels good knowing there's a Week 18 for the Chiefs.
