The odds of the Kansas City Chiefs making the playoffs are already very low. (Yes, you can mock me in the comments for even mentioning playoffs right now.)
Starting 0-3 makes a playoff berth damn near impossible. The last time an 0-3 team made the playoffs was back in 1998, the Buffalo Bills.
The good thing is (if there is a good thing) is that the Chiefs almost made it last year. They were 0-3, an uglier start than this year, and had a chance to win the AFC West as late as Week 16.
So it's not over. The 2011 Chiefs taught us that. But you would've had a hard time convincing me at this point last year that the Chiefs would be relevant in December.
