Where will this year’s won-loss record ultimately slot?
Now, let’s slot the record for the second four games of the season. The high… and the low for the final record. Since we know the Chiefs have already lost three games it’s a little easier to project the rest of the season. In the next four games, vs the Bears, @ the Vikings, vs the Steelers and playing the Lions in London… if the Chiefs go 3-1 it will give them a record of 4-4. While you’d like to say the Chiefs can go 4-0 in this stretch it doesn’t seems likely although we know they’ve gone on winning streaks in each of their last two seasons. To slot the high end of what they’re capable of… let’s say they go 4-0 which would bring them to a 5-3 record.
Following through on the High scenario, in the second half of the season they go, @ Denver, @ San Diego, vs the Bills and @ Oakland. If they finish this part of the season 2-2 which seems likely considering they face the Broncos, a good Bills team and San Diego away… that would bring them to 7-5.
In the last fourth of the season they go, vs Chargers, @ Baltimore, vs the Browns and home against the Raiders. If they can go 3-1 here they will finish the year at 10-6 with a chance to make the playoffs. That is the upside… the High of possible outcomes. Without going game by game I also believe they could finish 7-9.

What do you say Addict Fans? Please don’t shoot (or slot) the messenger but, is this a better way of understanding who these Chiefs are (at this point in time)… or would you like to re-slot the groups yourself?
