it's almost time. The Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium with NFL playoff implications on the line. We all know the Chiefs playoff scenario right now -- win the final two games, Bills beat the Broncos and the Chargers lose one of their final two games.

If any of those don't happen, the Chiefs are done. What really needs to happen today is A.) the Chiefs win and B.) the Broncos lose. That will keep it going at least one more week. I asked Brian Galliford over at out Bills blog, Buffalo Rumblings, if the Bills had a shot at beating Denver today.

Sure, but the chances are about as small as Lloyd Christmas's chances with Mary Swanson. Denver's defense gave Buffalo's offense fits in the pre-season - that was before Denver got really good on that side of the ball, and before the Bills got rather pathetic on offense - and their power running game will absolutely shred Buffalo's terrible defense. This one could be a blowout.

Keep an eye on Buffalo Rumblings today.

It's not that crazy. But it all starts today. The Chiefs and Broncos both play at 12:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) so we'll definitely be doing some scoreboard watching (as the Chiefs presumably will).

Because I'm optimistic, I'm taking the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium today. I can see a multi-touchdown (!) performance from the Chiefs offense. Let's go with 24-16, Chiefs.
