Don’t Even Think About Making Other Plans

4. — @ Baltimore Ravens — Week 15

Although the Ravens’ defense is not what it once was, winning at Baltimore is no easy task. The XLVII (or we’ll call it 2013 for those who only read Roman Numerals, a.k.a. everyone, during the second week of February) Champions were 10-6 last season and seem to play to the final whistle every single game. They may or may not have Ray Rice, but Justin Forsett is probably the better running back at this point. Quarterback Joe Flacco knows how to win playoff games on the road, but he’s pretty good at home as well. With this game being played in Week 15, it should have a playoff feel from start to finish.

T-2. — @ Denver Broncos — Week 10; vs. Denver Broncos — Week 2

Division games. Rival. 6-0 against the Chiefs since Peyton Manning joined the team. Biggest road block to a Chiefs’ division championship. Check, check, check and check. The Chiefs have to win at least one of these games, and maybe both, to earn the top spot in the AFC West. What makes the games intriguing this season is that more so than ever since Manning came aboard, the feeling is that the Chiefs can beat Denver. Manning showed signs of aging toward the end of last season, super star tight end Julius Thomas moved on to Jacksonville and it’s the third year of the Alex Smith/Andy Reid Project that has progressed nicely. Despite all of that, the Broncos have owned the Chiefs lately, and it will take two stellar efforts for Kansas City to come away victorious against Denver. If you can’t get pumped for these games, especially the Week 2 Thursday match-up at Arrowhead, it’s time to turn in your Chiefs’ Fan Card.

1. — @ Green Bay Packers — Week 3

Last season when the schedule came out, all the talk was a Monday Night Football match-up at home in Week 4 with the Patriots. Although most honest Chiefs’ fans didn’t think a win was likely, it still was a game they all circled on their calendars. This MNF match-up with Green Bay has a similar feel. Although the 41-14 victory against New England last year should give fans a little confidence, this game is at Lambeau Field, against what could possibly be the best team in the NFC. Although Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and the rest of the offense will be hard to handle, this is must-see TV on the NFL’s, regular season’s grandest stage. A win here could set the tone for one of the best seasons’ the Chiefs have seen in quite some time.
