That's nothing to be ashamed of.
The media hyped KC because that's what they do. KC fans got excited because the drastic improvement was shocking.
The Denver games were a reality check. KC is a good team now.
They're not a great team. They're not a SB team. May not be a playoff winner...
When Chiefs are average to good (it has been awhile for "great"), Denver loses at KC. End of discussion. You were at home, must win and had a 14 point lead. You needed to close us out and our defense started stopping the scoring while Peyton got us going with tds. Like I said, Chargers game was a bite but this game was the stinger. You win, you are in first place and control your destiny. You lose, you can probably kiss the division away to Denver and go on the road for playoffs.
