Hey AFC West, Check Out The First Place Kansas City Chiefs

New, comments

Yeah, it's just one game. Just one weekend. Just one night.

But the Kansas City Chiefs can, should and will proudly say they are your first place Kansas City Chiefs.

That's right. With the Chiefs 21-14 victory over the San Diego Chargers, and the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders losing on Sunday, there sits one team atop the AFC West.

It feels...right. Like it should be.

"The whole thing felt like 15 years ago, right down to Billy Ray Cyrus singing the national anthem in a Joe Montana Chiefs jersey," writes Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star.

He couldn't be more right.

This is the way it felt in 1995 when Tamarick Vanover took that kick return to the house to beat those same Chargers in overtime on Monday Night Football. This is the way it felt when you knew -- just knew -- that the Chiefs were going to be division title contenders.

First place, folks. Let's enjoy this one.
