Better Than Pre-Season

16. — vs. Cleveland Browns — Week 16

No Johnny Football, no one cares. Who knows if he will be playing, but if not, the only intrigue to this game is trying to hold the Browns scoreless. The Chiefs should win this one going away. And while any Chiefs game is worth watching, no one will hold it against you if you try and get a sneak peek of what should be a meaningful Colts at Dolphins game.

15. — vs. Buffalo Bills — Week 12

This game ranks so low because it seems like the Chiefs have played the Bills for the past 38 seasons (in reality it’s only seven of the past eight). Although Buffalo has improved, it always feels like some super cold game that is never very entertaining — or just plain awful. The only thing that could make this game entertaining is the fact the Bills added LeSean McCoy, which could be a great match-up opposite Jamaal Charles. Although, with the up and down nature of McCoy’s career, we have no idea how good he will be at this point. Bank on a game somewhere in the 17-14 range.

14. — vs. San Diego Chargers — Week 14

A division game that ends in the Chiefs’ favor is always a good game, but not sure how exciting it is to watch the Chargers at home. For one thing, San Diego has won four of six at Arrowhead, and while that shouldn’t be the outcome this season, it certainly takes away from intrigue when looking at the entire schedule. Phillip Rivers was going to stay in San Diego, then he was all-but a Tennessee Titan and now he is staying put. There always seems to be drama surrounding him however, so this shouldn’t be much different.

13. — vs. Oakland Raiders — Week 17

Ok, it’s hard not to put a game against the hated Raiders on a “top watch” list, but from a pure football standpoint this game could be like watching an episode of “The Bachelor” (or “The Bachelorette,” take your pick) — a train wreck. Kansas City will hopefully have a playoff spot (or the division) wrapped up and the only point of this game will be to watch Raider fans cry.

Next: No. 12-9
