It's prediction time between now and the start of the 2012 NFL season. Sports Illustrated has released their preview edition this week and Peter King has some good news for KC Chiefs fans -- the playoff winless streak will be ending this year.

King predicts the Chiefs go 10-6 and WIN their first playoff game against the Buffalo Bills (!!!). The Chiefs, of course, haven't won a playoff game since January 1994. That's a long 18-plus years.

The Chiefs will fall in the Divisional round, losing to the New England Patriots.

He also has Romeo Crennel as the coach of the year.

There's also this quote from Jamaal Charles, who is becoming very quotable lately.

"There were a lot of tough moments in the beginning, a lot of thinking, a lot of pain just feeling like everybody had forgotten about me. I started hating everything around me because nobody was talking about me anymore. It was like no one knew who I was. But God puts everybody through different things for different reasons. It's about you come out of it."

I think people will be noticing Charles a little more this year.
