The Kansas City Chiefs enter Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks with an impressive 5-0 record at Arrowhead Stadium. It doesn't get much better than sweeping your home field and letting people know whose house it is. Of course, KC has just six wins, which means they also have just one road victory.
In Week 2, the Chiefs traveled to Cleveland and beat the Browns. Since then, it's been ugly on the road: at Indianapolis Colts, at Houston Texans, at Oakland Raiders and at Denver Broncos.
Four games. Four losses.
The Seahawks aren't the same team as the Colts or Texans but their home-field advantage is significant. Seattle's generally mentioned in the same breath as KC when you're talking about home-field advantages. It's not a good team for the Chiefs to be struggling on the road.
According to my calculations, KC has not won on the road in 70 days.
We've talked about he importance of winning on the road. I wrote that I wanted to see a signature road win before the end of the season and a dominating victory at Seattle could qualify.
Road games are slowly becoming a focal point in KC as the Chiefs look to make the next step. This is a big, big test for the Chiefs. A win here could go a long way to wrapping up this division.
