Kansas City Chiefs Should Use Week 16 as Playoff Prepper vs. Indianapolis Colts
The 11-3 Kansas City Chiefs take on the 9-5 AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts at Arrowhead Stadium for Week 16. The Colts are 11-2 against the Chiefs in the 13 times they’ve met since 1990, but the Chiefs are favored by seven to win this time around. This will be a good test run for Kansas City against a team they will most likely meet in an upcoming AFC Wild Card playoff game.
The Chiefs appear to be back on track after three straight weeks of losses. They decisively defeated both the Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders over the past two weeks by a combined 60 points. Kansas City’s once impermeable defense has shown some flaws, but almost as if to compensate the offense has broken out and started scoring over 40 PPG during their last four games.
To the Colts’ credit, they’ve won this season against the likes of the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers showing that they can play with the best of the best teams. But their run seems to have slowed down a bit lately, and they’ll want to get back to winning in time for the postseason.
If both teams keep playing as they have offense will be a strong suit all around this Sunday. Based on their histories, however, Kansas City seems to be due for this win — especially since the Colts have shown to be road underdogs in their past five games.
Both teams will go to the playoffs, but they each want to boost their current seeding. The Chiefs can still take the AFC West division if they keep winning and the Broncos lose one more, and Indianapolis can still score themselves a first-round bye if the Cincinnati Bengals or New England Patriots lose.
This Sunday’s matchup has the makings for a great game to watch, especially if both teams bring the best swagger that they’ve shown this season.
