With just three games left in the regular season, the Kansas City Chiefs–now 8-5–head to Baltimore to take on the struggling Ravens which are coming off a 35-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last weekend.
Without starting QB Joe Flacco, the Ravens haven’t been able to find any type of efficiency or success on the offensive side of the ball.
Meanwhile, Kansas City is one of the hottest teams in the NFL after starting 1-5 on the year with its only win coming in week one against the Houston Texans.
Now, with the end of the season upon us and the playoffs looming, the Chiefs have reeled off seven straight wins and are showing a potent offense in all facets, particularly Alex Smith throwing the ball down field, something the Chiefs haven’t been known for since Smith’s arrival.
With weapons like Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelcy, the Smith and the coaching staff have full confidence in getting the ball down field and allowing the playmakers to make plays.
In last week’s win over the San Diego Chargers on what was a miserable weather day, the Chiefs scored the games only touchdown on a 44 yard strike to Albert Wilson.
With the offense clicking on all cylinders and the defense proving to be among the more stout units in the league, the Chiefs appear to be a legitimate threat in the postseason.
Mathematically, Kansas City is in a position to potentially steak the AFC West crown from the Denver Broncos, which are playing their worst football of the season with Peyton Manning nursing an injury and Brock Osweiler trying to keep the season patched together.
As it stands, Kansas City is looking at a potential first-round home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, or a road trip to either Houston or Indianapolis.
If you’re purely looking at records and the chances of coming away with a win, playing on the road against a team like the Colts, who are without Andrew Luck, would seem like a more favorable matchup.
With three weeks left, and two of those three weeks being played at home at the friendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium, there is still plenty to play for and plenty of jockeying for playoff position.
No road game is ever easy in the NFL, regardless of how bad a team may be, so the focus on Sunday’s game agains the Ravens is increasingly important for Andy Reid’s squad. If the Chiefs are able to come away with an eighth straight victory and a 9-5 record on the year, their chances of making the playoffs is almost guaranteed.
As of Monday, according to Las Vegas, the Chiefs have a 94-percent chance of making the playoffs.
With the game against the Ravens, followed by home games against the Browns and Raiders, one would expect Kansas City to win at least 2-of-3, giving KC a 10-6 record on the year and a certain spot in the 2015 postseason.
