The common assumption this week has been that the Kansas City Chiefs need to win out to make the playoffs. That would guarantee them a playoff spot and folks are saying that because the San Diego Chargers are arguably the second hottest team in the NFL right now behind the New England Patriots,
"We have a chance to spoil somebody’s season because our season has already been spoiled, and I think that is also weighing heavy on our guys. It’s a good situation for us to be in. We’ve got nothing to lose. We know what we are playing for; we’re playing for a win and to slow somebody’s season down."
A Chargers loss would make things easier for the Chiefs. If San Diego loses, and KC wins, then the Chiefs clinch the division title this Sunday. (Ain't no party like a clinch party) A Chargers loss and a Chiefs loss just puts the pressure on Week 17.
The Chiefs play the early game on Sunday and the Chargers-Bengals are the late game so we won't know until 6:00 p.m. (Arrowhead time) or so if the Chiefs are division champs.
What do you think? Will Cincy rain on San Diego's parade?
