Good morning, Addicts! It’s HUMP DAYYYYYYY. The Kansas City Chiefs are returning to practice after having a nice day off, and will hopefully have their full compliment of players come Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Should the Chiefs beat Buffalo, they would almost have to lay down to miss the postseason.
The Chiefs would have tiebreakers over the Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers and Bills. Kansas City would also be rolling at that point even more than it is now, currently winners of four straight.
Here is the news you need to know:
"There’s plenty of football from now until then. But they’ve won four straight games and show no signs of slowing down — even in the tight AFC."
Andy Reid talks about how incredible Eric Berry is – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

If playoffs began today, the Chiefs would be visiting the Broncos – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"IF the playoffs started today, the Chiefs would be visiting the … Denver Broncos. Indeed, a matchup of the January 1998 playoff game where Tony Gonzalez was in bounds the Broncos won, 14-10. The Chiefs split with the Broncos including a 16-point victory in Denver for the Chiefs."
Can Kansas City sustain this level of play? – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"The one-game-at-a-time approach has served the Kansas City Chiefs well during their four-game winning streak. So coach Andy Reid did the sensible thing in refusing to talk about the playoffs after Sunday’s win over the Chargers raised the Chiefs’ record to 5-5."
Will Tyrod Taylor play against the Chiefs on Sunday? – Mike Rodak of ESPN
"Taylor missed two games last month with a knee injury he suffered in a comeback win over the Tennessee Titans; he also finished that game before being limited in practice in the ensuing days."
