I booked flights/hotel to Indy over a week ago before prices went up. The intent was to catch two playoff games. I was sweating it out today but was glad to see everything fall into place. My brother is a Charger fan so we will be able to see his team play in Cincy which is an added bonus.

I am looking forward to ending the 20 year drought and we definitely are due to beat Indy.

I am also looking forward to a possible Charger/Bronco rematch if SD can pull off the upset. Btw, Dalton did not look good today.

Nah, not worried. This team has no expectations going into the playoffs and while they've proven they can beat anyone, they can also lose to anyone, just depends on which team shows up. I'm expecting a loss next week but I'm glad they made the playoffs and will get valuable experience for the young players and a lot of the newer coaching staff.

Fair enough, did you know that KC has the best defense since the 2000 ravens?

Looks like boltaneer was right? the chargers almost slept on yall. maybe overlooked ysll... I did call a win nevertheless.

I don't think the chargers can beat the Bengals.

I'd personally want to see the broncos and chiefs match up again.

As far as Chiefs V Colts. I'm going with the colts due to being the home team. should be exciting week for chief fans though. Enjoy it

Win, Lose or Draw I am just looking forward to some great football. My wife has been to a few games before, but never a playoff game. We are also taking a NFL game virgin with us, so I am interested to see his reaction to a live NFL playoff game.

I have some money to play with ober the weekend as I took SD over the Broncos on the moneyline last time they met.

Yes I did.

And also, I heard that San Diego didn't want to give any game tape to the other playoff teams...

The real reason we put in the Bro in the second half wasnt because we were up by 5 scores
That is one half less of game tape other playoff teams have on us

Eh, maybe. I wouldn't be shocked to hear that they just played down to their competition and tried to overlook the chiefs. like what I think the broncos did in our game. Y'all did put the ass whooping down that day. no doubt

Kid looked good and i'd love to see him continue his development. Not a world beater but he has definitely advanced his play.

It would be fitting as the first team in their current loosing to beat the chefs was the colts. QB'd by Jim Harbaugh!

Chiefs are significantly better in scoring defense, which is why Gaylore didn't bring it up. Points determine games and not yards, right?

I'd be interested in what the rankings are for all teams since mid-season. For the Broncos, I think that is the @ Chargers game. I know some can't/won't believe it, but the Broncos have been playing better D in the 2nd half than they were in the first.

It's not the end all be all. We can bring out examples why the Chiefs may have the better scoring defense. The fact that you guys did face back up QB's regularly. so many variables. I am not claiming the Broncos Defense as the 00 Ravens either. We played well enough to get 13 wins. I think getting healthy we'll continue to see the defense we saw today, Average. Lets be honest here. With manning that's all that is needed. We don't need to have points scored off turnovers

Case in point where you guys are the 5th in scoring Defense.That helped slow down the Defense we averaged 31 points against you guys you gave up 19 and some change on average. We were 21 in the league and averaged 24.9 you guys aveaged 22.5 against us.

R and R I wouldn't even know where to begin to look for this info

Agreed. I actually feel better about our defense today than I did a month ago, even with the loss of Von Miller.

Defense averaged 27.25 first 8 for 218 points vs 181 or 22.52 last 8 games for what its worth


Chiefs over the first 8 98 points against 12.25 average. last 8 207 25.87average.

you could make the point, that you want your team playing better on the back 8 then the first 8. take it for what its worth.

1. Von Miller
2. Cold Weather
3. Opposing Offenses playing ball control to keep Manning off the field

No sugar coating it, Von will be missed, for sure. OTOH, the two lowest score totals from opponents came without him. And before you scream "yeah, but they suck", consider this:
Schaub is a poor man's Romo. Pretty good for most of the game, makes a critical error in crunch time. He would make one of the better back up's for someone.

Pryor sucks, for sure, but he looked better in his 3rd game as a pro against us than he did today(or yesterday) after he's had several games experience. He scored 21 points at mile high, 14 in slop at home. That's improvement no matter how you slice it. If the Broncos played Henne and the Jags again, they don't make Henne look all pro. Period.

Manning proved cold weather doesn't affect him. If it affects the other QB, good. I'll take it.

Your 3rd point is bogus. Only the chargers with a 2 day game preparation played ball control with any success. The only thing of significance to come out of that game is that the Broncos have the so called "blueprint" on how to beat them. They can now make the necessary adjustments using said blueprint.

All that being said, the question isn't whether the defense is improved, because it has, IMHO. The question is can this defense rise to the occasion and make the critical stop or TO when we need it, so the offense can do its thing?

Stay tuned, we'll find out in 2 weeks.

Playing the two worst teams in football can do that for confidence.

Rut Roh Shaggy! Eric Fisher ruled out for Saturday.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...as-city-chiefs

The team told NFL Media on Friday that starting right tackle Eric Fisher has been ruled out for Saturday's wild-card showdown against the Indianapolis Colts with the groin injury he suffered in Tuesday's practice.

The good news for the Chiefs is that Branden Albert is expected to return at left tackle after missing the past four weeks with a hyperextended knee. His replacement, Donald Stephenson, likely will shift to the right side against a Colts defense with 41 sacks on the year.

Fisher graded out as this season's 70th-ranked tackle, per Pro Football Focus, after Kansas City made him the top overall pick in last April's NFL Draft. Stephenson ranked at No. 64 after making seven starts for the Chiefs in 2013.

Here's the rest of Friday's injury news:

1. Also for Kansas City, while outside linebacker Justin Houston is probable and expected to start for the first time since dislocating his elbow before Thanksgiving, pass rusher Tamba Hali is questionable with a knee injury. Tough blow for a Chiefs defense with just 10 sacks since Week 12.

2. The Colts are relatively healthy. Outside of defensive tackles Fili Moala and Aubrayo Franklin being listed as questionable with knee injuries, everyone else on the report is probable.

70th ranked tackle? Who cares if he is ruled out? Terri Schaivo would have been a better tackle for the Chiefs this year.

It does sound like an upgrade for them. Maybe this is a benching hidden in the cloak of a minor injury?

Hmmmm...
