Will Chiefs let Steelers loss linger or move on quickly to Raiders?

With such a quick turnaround on Thursday night, will the Kansas City Chiefs let this loss to the Steelers linger?

Or will they move on?

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.
