The Kansas City Chiefs are a touchdown underdog in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Chiefs are 6.5 point 'dogs, which means yet another favorite is walking into Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs are 2-12, their season over, while the Colts are 9-5 hoping to secure a playoff berth by beating the Chiefs. The Colts simply need to win to clinch a playoff spot.
The Chiefs are in the running for the No. 1 pick, tied at two wins with the Jacksonville Jaguars. If the Chiefs lose, they'll remain in the running. Any wins at this point will cost them draft position.
The Chiefs will get an opportunity to see Andrew Luck and an offense that went from awful last year to very good this year. The Colts rebuild has a lot to do with Luck but it's also impressive from an organizational standpoint to go from winning just two games this year to playing a meaningful game in December.
The two quarterbacks pictured above will not be playing. Curtis Painter is no longer in Indy and Matt Cassel is now a backup in Kansas City.
