Eric Winston: Chiefs have to protect their home field

It's not exactly stunning news but Eric Winston said this week that the Chiefs have to win their home games.

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

We all know about the death of the Arrowhead Advantage and the Chiefs miserable record at Arrowhead Stadium over the past five seasons. It's sad, disappointing and frustrating as a fan to see your team lose at home, and in recent examples, get blown out at home.

Though there's a bit of captain obvious in here, Chiefs right tackle Eric Winston said this week that the Chiefs have to start winning their home games because it not only makes the playoffs more attainable but it's also good for everyone in the city.

"It's always important," Winston said of games at Arrowhead. "I think it's so hard to win games on the road in this league that if you give up games at home, it's hard to get to the double-digit win figure that you've got to get to in order to make the playoffs usually. We've got to start winning these games at home, not just for us, but for the fans, for the community, for everything. That's important. I think that's important as an organization is to win your home games. That's always been a priority and I think it'll continue to be a priority."

Monday after a Chiefs win >>>>> Monday after a Chiefs loss. No question.

If KC can upset Baltimore, there will be plenty of fans who are sucked right back into it -- I'm one of those fans -- and start figuring out what the Chiefs have to do to win the AFC West.

Home games do so much. KC used to be elite at home. Let's bring that back, even if for one afternoon (particularly this afternoon).
