And the legend of Arrowhead grows.
Following the New Orleans Saints 17-14 Monday Night Football victory over the Falcons in Atlanta's Georgia Dome, the Kansas City Chiefs remain as one of two teams to be undefeated at home this year.
The Falcons were, along with the Chiefs and New England Patriots, the only three teams with an undefeated record at home this year before their loss. That honor now belongs to the Chiefs and Pats. The Falcons move to 6-1 at home while the Chiefs and Patriots stand alone at 7-0.
This weekend the Chiefs host the Oakland Raiders and the Patriots host the Miami Dolphins.
The Chiefs have simply been a different team at home this year. Say what you want about the Chiefs, but any team coming into Arrowhead January 8 or 9 will have a serious problem on their hands. For whatever reason, the Chiefs offense enters another level and they haven't been stopped very often at home.
Other than making the playoffs, I can't think of a higher honor than going undefeated at home. Your fans get a chance to see you eight times a year and the Chiefs could come through on all eight games.
