Walking into the locker room following the Kansas City Chiefs 10-6 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday I didn't know what to expect. Was this another business as usual game? Would they be excited about the division victory, especially considering what happened at Denver three weeks ago? Would they be looking to San Diego?
All of the above...sort of.
Players said the division rivalry turned up the heat a little bit in this one, despite the (near) freezing temperatures. Wallace Gilberry said the Chiefs are going to enjoy this one until midnight. Eric Berry says he learned what these division games are all about. Many players acknowledged it wasn't a perfect game -- but also acknowledged that a win is a win no matter how you slice it.
The theme, though, was moving on -- specifically at San Diego on Dec. 12. Otherwise known as the biggest game of the year.
"Right now it is," Bowe said when asked if this game was satisfying, "but in 24 hours we'll be back in San Diego and we have to do the same thing we did today without the mistakes."
"It's time to move on," Tyson Jackson said after the game. "Coach gives us 24 hours to think about this victory but after that it's time to move on."
"We take it one by one," Shaun Smith said. "There's no point in looking ahead."
24 more hours of celebration and then it's the biggest game of the year...again.
