Coffee with the Chiefs: Wild Card dreams?


Good morning, Addicts! I’m sure many of you are still trying to run the sand out of the corners of your eyes after that wild Game 1 of the World Series. Your Kansas City Royals are leading the Fall Classic and now host Game 2, hoping to take a stranglehold on the series.

As for the Kansas City Chiefs, the time for getting prepared for the Detroit Lions has begun. Kansas City is sitting at 2-5, so any room for error is long out the window. Can the Chiefs somehow get on a roll before the BYE week?

Here is the news you need to know:

Five-game slide damaged but did not end Wild Card hopesAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The 2-5 Chiefs are two games behind the Steelers, who currently hold the final wild-card spot. But the Chiefs beat the Steelers on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium to end their losing streak, so they would hold a tiebreaker on Pittsburgh at the end of the season."

"So where do the Kansas City Chiefs rank this week? After a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, the Chiefs moved up in some power rankings but still rank in the bottom 10 teams in the NFL in most rankings for Week 8."

"Look, I understand that fans have wanted moves like this for a few weeks, so it’s easy to scream “why did it take so long” into the void. However, I’m going to focus on the positive; Reid finally stopped with half measures and sent a clear message to the entire team: do your job or sit down."
