WPI Roundtable: Defense Exposed?

The entire WPI crew answers your questions about the collapse in Houston and the number of Chiefs victories in 2010.

What happened to the defense in the 4th quarter against Houston?

Nick Athan: The Chiefs were simply not ready for a game like that. Remember, they've been perennial losers the last five years. Granted, not all of those players were around for some of those embarrassing losses. But you have to admit that the Chiefs under Haley are well ahead of schedule. Thus, winning a game like that is something they've not experienced as of yet.

I argue that the outcome of the game and the way the Chiefs' players lost it will be very beneficial down the road. I can't stand losing but it was a teaching lesson that Haley and his staff can use to the teams benefit as they push for a playoff spot. I say that neither Houston nor Indy is going to want to face this team in January, because the Chiefs won't make the same mistakes again that resulted in a pair of road losses.

C.E. Wendler: The answer really isn't a difficult one - the Chiefs were exposed. They're a young team with only one legitimate pass rusher, an extremely inexperienced secondary, and they were on the road against one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Sooner or later this season, KC's defense was going to get exposed. Just be glad that it happened against an elite offense and not a mediocre one. Fortunately the Chiefs won't face Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels every week.

Conor Crawford: The defense, as is the case with a lot of squads, got worn out. They were trying to control not just the top rusher in Arian Foster but also one of the best wide receivers in Andre Johnson. Matt Schaub isn't entire the best quarterback in the NFL, but he sure did look like it when the Chiefs' pass rush became pretty much nonexistent against the Texans.

Not only did the botched call against Brandon Flowers seal the deal against the Chiefs, but also the lack of penetration by the Chiefs' defense. It was by then that the team was trying to catch its breath against the runners and receivers and not entirely focused on getting to Schaub. If the Chiefs got to Schaub at least one more time, I think they would have won the game.

Josh Scotten: When a defense surrenders 21 fourth quarter points, it's a safe bet that there was more than one contributing factor. At the moment, I'm not subscribing to the early conclusions that Chiefs first-round pick Eric Berry is a bust. But the rookie safety is struggling in pass coverage. Berry is smart, works hard, and has elite physical gifts. It's only a matter of time before the young safety starts playing like a Pro Bowler.

The Chiefs pass rush again was sporadic and failed to get Texans QB Matt Schaub off his game. Houston has a strong offensive line but the Chiefs knew going in that if given time, Schaub and all star receiver Andre Johnson would pick apart their secondary, and that's exactly what they did.

But Berry's current struggles create problems for Romeo Crennel. His instincts to attack were stifled by the Texans talented passing attack and the fact the Chiefs first round pick has failed to cover the same ground in the NFL as he did at Tennessee. In the end he was forced to take a conservative approach, which ultimately proved costly.

Michael Ash: If you want to narrow it down to one specific problem, I'd blame the lack of a pass rush. The Texans double-teamed Tamba Hali much of the game, and the Chiefs simply don't have anyone else who can pressure the quarterback.

You can look at several of the Texans' big plays, not just during the fourth quarter, and see how much time Schaub had in the pocket. Several large gains or touchdowns were schoolyard football plays where receivers broke off their routes and just ran to open space. Even a great secondary is going to lose containment if the quarterback has 7-10 seconds to scan the field.

The good news is that it took an offense the caliber of Houston's to exploit this weakness. But if we see any hint of that trend continuing against Jacksonville, where the opponent negates Hali and no one else steps up, then Romeo Crennel is going to have to start looking for answers.

Who should we be most concerned about in the AFC West? Denver has a very easy schedule, but San Diego always seems to get rolling, no matter how poorly they start.

Nick Athan: The Chiefs don't have to be concerned with any of them. The Chargers are imploding. Their head coach is on the hot seat. They have the best offense and defense in football, yet they are 0-4 on the road and 0-2 in the division. The Broncos can't run the ball and their defense is weak.

The Raiders are the wild card in the division. One week they can look like world-beaters like they did against San Diego, then a week later they fall flat against the 49ers. But Kansas City just needs to take care of business. The schedule favors the Chiefs, who have six of their remaining eleven games at home.

Ultimately, the winner of the AFC West is going to be the team that likely has the best road record. Right now, the Chiefs are 1-2 and if they want to win the division they better end the season with a .500 record away from Arrowhead.

C.E. Wendler: San Diego's remaining schedule is so tough; it's difficult to see them making any noise. That leaves Denver and Oakland, who play this weekend in a game that's going to effectively end someone's season.

The winner of that game (likely Denver) will have a big game with the Chiefs shortly afterwards. That could determine the fate of the division. If the Broncos beat Oakland and San Francisco to even their record at 4-4, the Nov. 14 contest - Chiefs at Broncos - will be huge.

Conor Crawford: I really don't think that San Diego is a big factor in the AFC West this season. So far, they're already 0-4 on the road, both of those losses against lowly teams like the Raiders, Seahawks, Rams, and Chiefs. If the Chargers are going to live up to everybody's expectations as AFC West champs, they can't lose games like this.

Meanwhile, I think the Broncos are the team that the Chiefs have to worry about. While the AFC West isn't necessarily a strong division, there is always going to be a runner-up that gives the division leader a challenge. Both the Chiefs and Broncos have considerably easy schedules for the remainder of the year, they'll just have to wait and see how makes the best of those schedules.

Josh Scotten: Judging by the last two weeks, the division is wide open and all teams, including the Chiefs, have a legit shot at a playoff spot in January.

At 2-4, the Chargers lead the AFC in offense and are statistically the best defensive unit. But they are surrounded my bad luck, terrible special teams and in each of their four losses have been within a single play of changing the outcome.

The soap opera that is the Oakland Raiders is like the Kansas City weather – impossible to predict. Oakland is stocked full of talent that at some point you'd have to suspect might put it all together. Or will they?

In Denver, their offense has been putting up impressive numbers behind the play of Quarterback Kyle Orton. But I am still not sold on the direction of this organization. Head coach Josh McDaniels appears overwhelmed at times and he's so desperate to make something happen, he's beginning to design more plays for his risky first round pick, Tim Tebow. But as long as the offense continues hover near the top of the league in yards per game, it's easy to assume they'll be a contender.

Michael Ash: In terms of scheduling, Denver is by far the biggest threat, since their schedule gets as easy as the Chiefs' from this point forward. But I'm far from convinced that they can take advantage of it. They've already lost two of their home games, they have a stretch later in the year where they play four out of five games on the road, and they've collapsed down the stretch for two or three consecutive years now.

Then there are the Chargers, who always manage to shift into overdrive at some point. We can look at their record and chuckle about the teams they've lost to, but the truth is that they're still the most talented team in the division. And it's only going to get better for them when Vincent Jackson returns to action.

I have far more confidence in the Chargers pulling their heads out and righting their ship than I do of the Broncos playing consistent, winning football for the rest of the season. The Chargers are used to pulling it together. Denver is used to falling out of division races, not climbing back into them.

The good news is that the Chargers' schedule is tough enough that, even if they do start playing up to the level they're capable of, it probably won't translate into as many wins as it has in years past.

Matt Cassel had one decent game against the worst secondary in football. But when the Chiefs needed to rally at the end, he choked, throwing two awful passes and taking a sack. So why are some people acting like he proved something on Sunday? Are our standards really that low?

Nick Athan: What game were you watching? He didn't choke on anything. And forget the state of the Texans defense – the starting quarterback completed 20 of 28 passes, never came close to an interception, and threw three touchdowns. I'll take that every week.

As far as the last play, that was a horrific call by his coordinator. And had the Texans not blitzed their linebacker, and had running back Jamaal Charles picked up that blitz, Cassel would have had time to see Dwayne Bowe down the field wide open. I think Cassel will gain confidence from this game and this offense is only going to get better the more comfortable Cassel becomes in the pocket.

Ultimately, though, the coaches have to trust him as well. If it all comes together in the coming weeks, the Chiefs are going to score a lot of points game in and game out.

C.E. Wendler: Standards are fairly low, yes. We haven't seen a legitimate starting quarterback in Kansas City since Trent Green, so when a mediocre passer like Cassel puts up a 122 quarterback rating with three touchdowns, people tend to go overboard. It's fairly obvious now that Cassel is going to put up decent numbers this season and the Chiefs are going to be a winning football team, so there's most likely no end in sight to his rising approval rating.

We'll see how those same fans feel in the playoffs. That's when Cassel will truly prove his worth. If he blows a home playoff game, the same fans who are now backing Cassel likely won't be as supportive.

Conor Crawford: All NFL quarterbacks hear plenty of criticism, and this isn't anything new for Matt Cassel. I was really impressed by his showing in Houston and I expect him to shine again this season. The thing is, I still think he needs to take less time in determining his throws and just dish the ball off at the first chance he gets.

We won't ever be blessed with a quarterback like Peyton Manning, who will snap the ball and then immediately dump it off like a hot potato, but Cassel can't take forever in the pocket. The best thing he can do in late-game situations is aim for the sidelines. Those kinds of passes don't take long to dump off anyways.

Josh Scotten: Are the expectations of Chiefs Nation really that low? Probably. But make no mistake about it, Cassel had a great game on Sunday.

He's not going to win any games in your fantasy league, but on Sunday he did exactly what the coaching staff asked him to do. I've been fairly critical of Cassel in recent weeks for his inability to lift this offense. But I'll take Sunday's performance any day of the week.

Michael Ash: Cassel shouldn't be blamed for taking a sack on the final play of the game. Despite the Texans only sending a three man rush, Barry Richardson let a defender run right by him. It completely blew up the play because Cassel couldn't dump it off, he had to wait for his receivers to get downfield. That shouldn't be held against him.

But the rest is undeniably true. Praising Cassel for Sunday's performance is like sending a seventh grader into a third grade spelling bee, watching him win, and then talking about what a great job he did. That's not impressive. It should be expected. And we should expect an NFL quarterback, especially one with a running game behind him like Cassel had on Sunday, to have a solid outing against a horrible pass defense like Houston's.

We should also expect an NFL quarterback to rise up when the game is on the line. After the Texans took the lead, the effective Cassel we'd seen all game vanished and he suddenly looked shaky, missing a pair of throws to wide open receivers. I wouldn't go as far as saying he "choked", because the chances of a win had pretty much evaporated. But seeing him regress in that situation certainly didn't inspire much confidence.

Now that the hard part of the schedule is out of the way, what's a realistic record for the rest of the year? Todd Haley says he hopes to go 3-1 in every quarter of the season – they accomplished it in the first quarter, is it realistic to think they can do it three more times?

Nick Athan: Mike Campbell and I broke that down in our most recent Out of Bounds Podcast. The Chiefs are in a fortuitous situation. The teams they play going forward have a combined record of 19-34. In fact, outside of road contests at San Diego, Seattle and Denver, the Chiefs should be favored in eight of their eleven remaining games.

I think the Chiefs will likely finish 7-1 at home this year while ending with a 4-4 road record. It's reasonable to assume that KC will slip up at home at some point. I think they're going to slip against either Arizona or Tennessee. On the road, I think they'll beat the Raiders, Denver, and the Rams. Thus I have them 11-5.

C.E. Wendler: I have the Chiefs down for 10-6 right now. They'll lose road games at Denver, Seattle and San Diego, and drop a game at home against a tough Titans team. Realistically, there's no reason the Chiefs shouldn't be able to beat Jacksonville, Buffalo, Oakland (twice), Arizona, St. Louis and Denver at Arrowhead, barring a horrible rash of injuries.

That would put the Chiefs at 3-1, 3-1 and 2-2 in their remaining quarters.

Conor Crawford: To be realistic, I expect a record of 10-6. I won't go all out and say they could be 12-4 or 13-3 because while there are plenty of winnable games, I think there's going to be at least one more game that slips through the Chiefs' hands as it happened in Houston. In recent years, the Raiders may be atrocious but they surely aren't pushovers, especially since the Chiefs have struggled against them in the past few years.

In all likelihood, I think the only real tough games the Chiefs face for the rest of the season are the rematch against San Diego and the Week 16 game against Tennessee. However, there can still be some games which the Chiefs let slip away, and I think candidates for those games include both games against Denver and the game against Arizona.

Regardless, I think this team will be the only ones who would stop themselves from winning the AFC West. The Chiefs need to avoid mistakes and not beat themselves. It may very well happen where the Chiefs finish 12-4, but we should leave a little room for error.

Josh Scotten: If you take a gander at the remaining schedule, there is not a single team that the Chiefs aren't capable of beating. But there is also no game this team is above losing either.

In the second quarter, I think the Chiefs will finish with a 3-1 mark. Down the stretch though, I would not be surprised if a team like St. Louis, Seattle, or even Oakland catches this team sleeping walking through a game.

Though the Chiefs have a decent lead in the West there division hopes might be determined by road games at Denver and San Diego. Though at the moment, I see them splitting these games. But Chiefs know after Sunday's loss that there is sure to be some additional heartbreak before it's all said and done. Still they should win nine or ten games and that will be more than enough to secure a playoff spot.

Michael Ash: The Chiefs will probably lose in San Diego. If we see a repeat of the Houston game in terms of the non-existent pass rush, the two Denver games might be pretty rough with the way they throw the ball around. The trip to Seattle may be a stumbling block, and Tennessee will be a tough test. That's five potential losses.

If the Chiefs lost all five, they'd finish 9-7, but that's a worse-case scenario. I think they win at least one against Denver. And if I had to pick between Seattle and Tennessee, I'd actually pick us beating Tennessee, since that's a home game. Denver went on the road and beat the Titans, so I think we can do the same at home, assuming the defense keeps Chris Johnson in check. If they only lose three of those five games, that'd make for a record of 11-5, just shy of Haley's hope of having four 3-1 quarters.

First things first, though: let's see them take care of business against Jacksonville and Buffalo. If we can't beat these two teams at home, we have no business talking about finishing the year with double-digit victories.

Josh Scotten: If you take a gander at the remaining schedule, there is not a single team that the Chiefs aren't capable of beating. But there is also no game this team is above losing either.\r\n\r\n

In the second quarter, I think the Chiefs will finish with a 3-1 mark. Down the stretch though, I would not be surprised if a team like St. Louis, Seattle, or even Oakland catches this team sleeping walking through a game. \r\n\r\n

Though the Chiefs have a decent lead in the West there division hopes might be determined by road games at Denver and San Diego. Though at the moment, I see them splitting these games. But Chiefs know after Sunday's loss that there is sure to be some additional heartbreak before it's all said and done. Still they should win nine or ten games and that will be more than enough to secure a playoff spot.\r\n\r\n

Michael Ash: The Chiefs will probably lose in San Diego. If we see a repeat of the Houston game in terms of the non-existent pass rush, the two Denver games might be pretty rough with the way they throw the ball around. The trip to Seattle may be a stumbling block, and Tennessee will be a tough test. That's five potential losses.\r\n\r\n

If the Chiefs lost all five, they'd finish 9-7, but that's a worse-case scenario. I think they win at least one against Denver. And if I had to pick between Seattle and Tennessee, I'd actually pick us beating Tennessee, since that's a home game. Denver went on the road and beat the Titans, so I think we can do the same at home, assuming the defense keeps Chris Johnson in check. If they only lose three of those five games, that'd make for a record of 11-5, just shy of Haley's hope of having four 3-1 quarters.\r\n\r\n

First things first, though: let's see them take care of business against Jacksonville and Buffalo. If we can't beat these two teams at home, we have no business talking about finishing the year with double-digit victories.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n","mobileBody":"

The Chiefs were simply not ready for a game like that. Remember, they've been perennial losers the last five years. Granted, not all of those players were around for some of those embarrassing losses. But you have to admit that the Chiefs under Haley are well ahead of schedule. Thus, winning a game like that is something they've not experienced as of yet.

I argue that the outcome of the game and the way the Chiefs' players lost it will be very beneficial down the road. I can't stand losing but it was a teaching lesson that Haley and his staff can use to the teams benefit as they push for a playoff spot. I say that neither Houston nor Indy is going to want to face this team in January, because the Chiefs won't make the same mistakes again that resulted in a pair of road losses.

The answer really isn't a difficult one - the Chiefs were exposed. They're a young team with only one legitimate pass rusher, an extremely inexperienced secondary, and they were on the road against one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Sooner or later this season, KC's defense was going to get exposed. Just be glad that it happened against an elite offense and not a mediocre one. Fortunately the Chiefs won't face Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels every week.

The defense, as is the case with a lot of squads, got worn out. They were trying to control not just the top rusher in Arian Foster but also one of the best wide receivers in Andre Johnson. Matt Schaub isn't entire the best quarterback in the NFL, but he sure did look like it when the Chiefs' pass rush became pretty much nonexistent against the Texans.

Not only did the botched call against Brandon Flowers seal the deal against the Chiefs, but also the lack of penetration by the Chiefs' defense. It was by then that the team was trying to catch its breath against the runners and receivers and not entirely focused on getting to Schaub. If the Chiefs got to Schaub at least one more time, I think they would have won the game.

When a defense surrenders 21 fourth quarter points, it's a safe bet that there was more than one contributing factor. At the moment, I'm not subscribing to the early conclusions that Chiefs first-round pick Eric Berry is a bust. But the rookie safety is struggling in pass coverage. Berry is smart, works hard, and has elite physical gifts. It's only a matter of time before the young safety starts playing like a Pro Bowler.

The Chiefs pass rush again was sporadic and failed to get Texans QB Matt Schaub off his game. Houston has a strong offensive line but the Chiefs knew going in that if given time, Schaub and all star receiver Andre Johnson would pick apart their secondary, and that's exactly what they did.

But Berry's current struggles create problems for Romeo Crennel. His instincts to attack were stifled by the Texans talented passing attack and the fact the Chiefs first round pick has failed to cover the same ground in the NFL as he did at Tennessee. In the end he was forced to take a conservative approach, which ultimately proved costly.

If you want to narrow it down to one specific problem, I'd blame the lack of a pass rush. The Texans double-teamed Tamba Hali much of the game, and the Chiefs simply don't have anyone else who can pressure the quarterback.

You can look at several of the Texans' big plays, not just during the fourth quarter, and see how much time Schaub had in the pocket. Several large gains or touchdowns were schoolyard football plays where receivers broke off their routes and just ran to open space. Even a great secondary is going to lose containment if the quarterback has 7-10 seconds to scan the field.

The good news is that it took an offense the caliber of Houston's to exploit this weakness. But if we see any hint of that trend continuing against Jacksonville, where the opponent negates Hali and no one else steps up, then Romeo Crennel is going to have to start looking for answers.



The Chiefs don't have to be concerned with any of them. The Chargers are imploding. Their head coach is on the hot seat. They have the best offense and defense in football, yet they are 0-4 on the road and 0-2 in the division. The Broncos can't run the ball and their defense is weak.



The Raiders are the wild card in the division. One week they can look like world-beaters like they did against San Diego, then a week later they fall flat against the 49ers. But Kansas City just needs to take care of business. The schedule favors the Chiefs, who have six of their remaining eleven games at home.

Ultimately, the winner of the AFC West is going to be the team that likely has the best road record. Right now, the Chiefs are 1-2 and if they want to win the division they better end the season with a .500 record away from Arrowhead.

San Diego's remaining schedule is so tough; it's difficult to see them making any noise. That leaves Denver and Oakland, who play this weekend in a game that's going to effectively end someone's season.

The winner of that game (likely Denver) will have a big game with the Chiefs shortly afterwards. That could determine the fate of the division. If the Broncos beat Oakland and San Francisco to even their record at 4-4, the Nov. 14 contest - Chiefs at Broncos - will be huge.

I really don't think that San Diego is a big factor in the AFC West this season. So far, they're already 0-4 on the road, both of those losses against lowly teams like the Raiders, Seahawks, Rams, and Chiefs. If the Chargers are going to live up to everybody's expectations as AFC West champs, they can't lose games like this.

Meanwhile, I think the Broncos are the team that the Chiefs have to worry about. While the AFC West isn't necessarily a strong division, there is always going to be a runner-up that gives the division leader a challenge. Both the Chiefs and Broncos have considerably easy schedules for the remainder of the year, they'll just have to wait and see how makes the best of those schedules.

Judging by the last two weeks, the division is wide open and all teams, including the Chiefs, have a legit shot at a playoff spot in January.

At 2-4, the Chargers lead the AFC in offense and are statistically the best defensive unit. But they are surrounded my bad luck, terrible special teams and in each of their four losses have been within a single play of changing the outcome.

The soap opera that is the Oakland Raiders is like the Kansas City weather – impossible to predict. Oakland is stocked full of talent that at some point you'd have to suspect might put it all together. Or will they?

In Denver, their offense has been putting up impressive numbers behind the play of Quarterback Kyle Orton. But I am still not sold on the direction of this organization. Head coach Josh McDaniels appears overwhelmed at times and he's so desperate to make something happen, he's beginning to design more plays for his risky first round pick, Tim Tebow. But as long as the offense continues hover near the top of the league in yards per game, it's easy to assume they'll be a contender.

In terms of scheduling, Denver is by far the biggest threat, since their schedule gets as easy as the Chiefs' from this point forward. But I'm far from convinced that they can take advantage of it. They've already lost two of their home games, they have a stretch later in the year where they play four out of five games on the road, and they've collapsed down the stretch for two or three consecutive years now.

Then there are the Chargers, who always manage to shift into overdrive at some point. We can look at their record and chuckle about the teams they've lost to, but the truth is that they're still the most talented team in the division. And it's only going to get better for them when Vincent Jackson returns to action.

I have far more confidence in the Chargers pulling their heads out and righting their ship than I do of the Broncos playing consistent, winning football for the rest of the season. The Chargers are used to pulling it together. Denver is used to falling out of division races, not climbing back into them.

The good news is that the Chargers' schedule is tough enough that, even if they do start playing up to the level they're capable of, it probably won't translate into as many wins as it has in years past.



What game were you watching? He didn't choke on anything. And forget the state of the Texans defense – the starting quarterback completed 20 of 28 passes, never came close to an interception, and threw three touchdowns. I'll take that every week.



As far as the last play, that was a horrific call by his coordinator. And had the Texans not blitzed their linebacker, and had running back Jamaal Charles picked up that blitz, Cassel would have had time to see Dwayne Bowe down the field wide open. I think Cassel will gain confidence from this game and this offense is only going to get better the more comfortable Cassel becomes in the pocket.

Ultimately, though, the coaches have to trust him as well. If it all comes together in the coming weeks, the Chiefs are going to score a lot of points game in and game out.

Standards are fairly low, yes. We haven't seen a legitimate starting quarterback in Kansas City since Trent Green, so when a mediocre passer like Cassel puts up a 122 quarterback rating with three touchdowns, people tend to go overboard. It's fairly obvious now that Cassel is going to put up decent numbers this season and the Chiefs are going to be a winning football team, so there's most likely no end in sight to his rising approval rating.

We'll see how those same fans feel in the playoffs. That's when Cassel will truly prove his worth. If he blows a home playoff game, the same fans who are now backing Cassel likely won't be as supportive.

All NFL quarterbacks hear plenty of criticism, and this isn't anything new for Matt Cassel. I was really impressed by his showing in Houston and I expect him to shine again this season. The thing is, I still think he needs to take less time in determining his throws and just dish the ball off at the first chance he gets.

We won't ever be blessed with a quarterback like Peyton Manning, who will snap the ball and then immediately dump it off like a hot potato, but Cassel can't take forever in the pocket. The best thing he can do in late-game situations is aim for the sidelines. Those kinds of passes don't take long to dump off anyways.

Are the expectations of Chiefs Nation really that low? Probably. But make no mistake about it, Cassel had a great game on Sunday.

He's not going to win any games in your fantasy league, but on Sunday he did exactly what the coaching staff asked him to do. I've been fairly critical of Cassel in recent weeks for his inability to lift this offense. But I'll take Sunday's performance any day of the week.

Cassel shouldn't be blamed for taking a sack on the final play of the game. Despite the Texans only sending a three man rush, Barry Richardson let a defender run right by him. It completely blew up the play because Cassel couldn't dump it off, he had to wait for his receivers to get downfield. That shouldn't be held against him.

But the rest is undeniably true. Praising Cassel for Sunday's performance is like sending a seventh grader into a third grade spelling bee, watching him win, and then talking about what a great job he did. That's not impressive. It should be expected. And we should expect an NFL quarterback, especially one with a running game behind him like Cassel had on Sunday, to have a solid outing against a horrible pass defense like Houston's.

We should also expect an NFL quarterback to rise up when the game is on the line. After the Texans took the lead, the effective Cassel we'd seen all game vanished and he suddenly looked shaky, missing a pair of throws to wide open receivers. I wouldn't go as far as saying he \"choked\", because the chances of a win had pretty much evaporated. But seeing him regress in that situation certainly didn't inspire much confidence.



Mike Campbell and I broke that down in our most recent Out of Bounds Podcast. The Chiefs are in a fortuitous situation. The teams they play going forward have a combined record of 19-34. In fact, outside of road contests at San Diego, Seattle and Denver, the Chiefs should be favored in eight of their eleven remaining games.



I think the Chiefs will likely finish 7-1 at home this year while ending with a 4-4 road record. It's reasonable to assume that KC will slip up at home at some point. I think they're going to slip against either Arizona or Tennessee. On the road, I think they'll beat the Raiders, Denver, and the Rams. Thus I have them 11-5.

I have the Chiefs down for 10-6 right now. They'll lose road games at Denver, Seattle and San Diego, and drop a game at home against a tough Titans team. Realistically, there's no reason the Chiefs shouldn't be able to beat Jacksonville, Buffalo, Oakland (twice), Arizona, St. Louis and Denver at Arrowhead, barring a horrible rash of injuries.

That would put the Chiefs at 3-1, 3-1 and 2-2 in their remaining quarters.

To be realistic, I expect a record of 10-6. I won't go all out and say they could be 12-4 or 13-3 because while there are plenty of winnable games, I think there's going to be at least one more game that slips through the Chiefs' hands as it happened in Houston. In recent years, the Raiders may be atrocious but they surely aren't pushovers, especially since the Chiefs have struggled against them in the past few years.

In all likelihood, I think the only real tough games the Chiefs face for the rest of the season are the rematch against San Diego and the Week 16 game against Tennessee. However, there can still be some games which the Chiefs let slip away, and I think candidates for those games include both games against Denver and the game against Arizona.

Regardless, I think this team will be the only ones who would stop themselves from winning the AFC West. The Chiefs need to avoid mistakes and not beat themselves. It may very well happen where the Chiefs finish 12-4, but we should leave a little room for error.

If you take a gander at the remaining schedule, there is not a single team that the Chiefs aren't capable of beating. But there is also no game this team is above losing either.

In the second quarter, I think the Chiefs will finish with a 3-1 mark. Down the stretch though, I would not be surprised if a team like St. Louis, Seattle, or even Oakland catches this team sleeping walking through a game.

Though the Chiefs have a decent lead in the West there division hopes might be determined by road games at Denver and San Diego. Though at the moment, I see them splitting these games. But Chiefs know after Sunday's loss that there is sure to be some additional heartbreak before it's all said and done.
