Kansas City Chiefs
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
Injuries slowed down the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half of the NFL season, but now they are much healthier as the playoffs approach.
Three seasons ago, Peyton Manning sat on the sidelines with an injury that many thought may end his career. The Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck out of Stanford and the rebuilding was about to begin. Little did anyone realize that the rebuilding would start immediately.
The Colts and Broncos have already secured a playoff spot, with others offered the chance this weekend if all breaks right. The question is, which team will win the AFC Championship this year?
After years of horrible seasons, poor performances, and multiple coaches, the Chiefs have completely rebuilt their foundation. It is now centered around former first pick and 49er, Alex Smith.
Thanks to Bob Costas following the Jovan Belcher tragedy, it’s apparent that there is no occasion in which a liberal-minded high-profile personality in society thinks that their opinion is unwelcome.
Matt Ryan stirred up a hornet’s nest with some late game comments the first time the Panthers faced the Falcons in Atlanta earlier this season. This weekend Ryan brings his team to Charlotte and there could be more story lines than just an 11-1 team squaring off against one that is 3-9.
When you are down and out and playing out the string, there is little to play for other than your job, but as far as Cam Newton is concerned, the Panthers have a lot more on the line. While it doesn’t seem like much, tying last season’s win mark would be a good way to take some of the bad taste the 2012 season will ultimately leave behind. Winning out would be a great step toward next year.
Not many people knew what to expect when the Chiefs hosted the Panthers on Sunday, because there was nothing to compare it to, but right from the opening drive there was a sense the home team was about to play their best game of the season. And they did, despite the horrific murder-suicide that took place a little more than 24-hours earlier.
