What do the Chiefs need to do to secure the pick? Here are the current contenders and their schedules.
Let's look at some games these teams could win.
Chiefs: Minnesota, @Indianapolis, Denver.
We really need to drop one of the first two.
Panthers: Minnesota, Tennessee, @Indianapolis.
I feel pretty good about the Panthers winning all three of these games, plus pick up another one somewhere down the line.
Colts: KC, Jax, Carolina, Tennessee, @Jax.
It helps that Carolina and Indy play each other. We really, really need the Colts to beat us because their schedule is tough outside these games.
Vikings: @Carolina, Denver, KC.
Seahawks: Cincy, @STL, STL, SF, @Arizona.
I feel good about the NFC West helping us out here.
Dolphins: Denver, KC, Buffalo, Oakland, @Buffalo.
Feel good about this. Miami is not horrible. They could also pick up a win against the Jets perhaps.
Rams: @Dal, @Ari, @Cle, Sea, Ari, @SF, @Sea, Cin, SF.
No way this team picks #1.
We really, really need to lose to Minnesota and Indy.
