The Kansas City Chiefs saw their playoff hopes go down the drain on Saturday when Sebastian Janikowski nailed an OT FG to give the Raiders a 16-13 win.
The loss was made even more excruciating by the fact that both the Broncos and Chargers lost, meaning had the Chiefs beaten the Raiders, they would have played for the AFC West Championship this week in Denver.
But alas, that was not the way things went. Truth be told, after all the injuries, QB changes and wacky bounces the Chiefs’ season took in 2011, the fact that the team was 6-8 with two weeks to go playing in a relevant football game was remarkable in itself.
The Chiefs have some big, big decisions to make but the good news is that they are pretty much even with the rest of the teams in the AFC West. One of these teams is eventually going to step up and grab this division by the throat. Let’s hope it’s the Chiefs.
We’ll get you ready for the Broncos game later on today. Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
