This is the kind of loss that lingers. Chiefs have to turnaround and play on TNF. This game can beat you twice.— Jason Whitlock (@WhitlockJason) October 15, 2017
Or will they move on?
I'd argue the Thursday game helps. They won't watch this film. Right to Oakland. Moving on.— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) October 15, 2017
My gut tells me this game doesn’t linger. They move on quickly. The Chiefs are a veteran team with a veteran coach who has been preparing for this quick turnaround. The short week is not catching the Chiefs by surprise and they weren’t playing for their season against the Steelers where this would be a letdown game.
The Chiefs are actually favorites in Oakland this Thursday night. The money thinks they’ll move on quickly and be ready for the Raiders, who have been the Chiefs little brother since Andy Reid came into the league (7-1).
The Chiefs were probably working ahead to get ready for Oakland. Instead of wondering if the Chiefs will be ready, the better question is wondering whether the Raiders will be ready after losing their fourth straight game over the weekend.
