The Kansas City Chiefs need to beat the Chargers and the Denver Broncos need to beat the Oakland Raiders in order for the Chiefs to earn the No. 2 overall seed in the AFC playoffs and a first round bye.
The NFL put both the Chiefs game and the Raiders game on in the late afternoon slot on Sunday so they’ll be playing at the same time.
That doesn’t mean that Andy Reid will be watching the score of the Raiders game.
“Yeah, I don’t look at any of that,” Reid said. “I didn’t look at it this past week. They told me on the way out, but I don’t want to get into all of that. That stuff drains you kind of on game day, you get emotionally [drained]. It’s not worth it. I don’t do that. I just go coach and try to win the game.”
I mean, someone is obviously going to tell him. Like the scoreboard operator or an assistant coach or a player on the sideline. He’s going to know.
Big Red should be made aware of the score to the other game. If the Raiders get up 28-0 in the third quarter and there’s no shot of the Chiefs getting the No. 2 seed, it’s probably time to think about sitting some of your own players.
