Chiefs Playoff Picture: Week 13

 8 replies

Arrowhead Guys tells you who to root for this week!

Playoff Picture

1. Steelers (11-0)
2. Chiefs (10-1)
3. Titans (8-3)
4. Bills (8-3)
5. Browns (8-3)
6. Dolphins (7-4)
7. Colts (7-4)

8. Raiders (6-5)
9. Ravens (6-5)

The Ravens chose an unfortunate week to lose half their team to Covid. Because this is one of the common games between the Steelers and Chiefs a Ravens win would have put the Chiefs in the top spot. Now we should have their game in Buffalo in 2 weeks circled, as that’s the last common opponent game that would give the Chiefs the tiebreaker (assuming we beat Denver this week).

While we do want Washington to win (and they have some chance, since they have so much more rest coming into this game) it really doesn’t do much for us. After common opponents the next tiebreaker is conference games, so a loss here would still have the Steelers in front and leave us still needing them to lose another game.

After those games the game against Indianapolis is the last one where the Steelers won’t be big favorites (their other remaining games are against the Browns and Bengals).

If the Chiefs don’t manage to get the top seed we will need to start talking about our wildcard round opponent (which would be the first time Mahomes has ever played in the first round). Right now it would be the Colts, which is unfortunate since they seem like the toughest team of those in wildcard contention. But as the season progresses I think they’ll end up rising above that spot. Regardless it seems like any of those 5 could realistically finish in any order.

Yuge loss. Very good player. 8 sacks and 2 FF so far this season and more than that, a big part of why their DL is collectively so good. No need to focus on Dupree means more focus for Tuitt and Watt. This is bound to be a harsh blow to their defense overall.

The Steelers are Patriots lucky this year which kind of scares me.
