Over the preseason, I felt like I was able to get a good grasp on the Chiefs strengths, weaknesses and possibilities. With that in mind, lets break down the teams game-by-game and take a look at the Cheifs' regular season schedule:
Week 1: San Diego Chargers
Chiefs get revenge from last season's debacle and hang on to win a close road victory
Week 3: San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers have too much talent on defense, and Alex Smith may have moved past Matt Cassel in the QB picking order of the NFL. Sad isn't it?
Week 5: @ Indianapolis Colts
This game is terrifying
The Texans simply have a little more talent on both sides of the ball.
Week 7: Jacksonville Jaguars
Kansas City matches up well with the Jags on defense. The offense and special teams should make the difference.
Week 8: Buffalo Bills
Chambers doesn't drop the sure touchdown this time. Kansas City simply has the better team
Week 9: # Oakland
Raiders finally have a decent quarterback. Feeling a split this year with the Raiders.
Week 10: @ Denver
Mile High has been a house of horrors for the Chiefs
Week 11: Arizona Cardinals
Matt Cassel will look like a superstar compared to the mess at QB for Arizona.
Week 12: @ Seattle Seahawks
The Seabirds lack talent, and seem to be hampered by injuries every year. This game is late, so...
Week 13: Denver Broncos
Chiefs repeat last year's home finale by running all over Denver again. Not even this guy will save the donkeys.
Week 14: @ San Diego Chargers
Week 15: @ St. Louis Rams
You and I could lineup for WR for the Rams. Seriously lets do it.
Week 16: Tennessee Titans
Chiefs will struggle to stop the Titans potent ground attack
Week 17: Oakland Raiders
All in all, the Cheifs have a very easy schedule (most pundits have deemed it the easiest schedule in the league) and have the chance to be competitive. If Cassel can recover from a poor preseason and the defense keeps improving, Kansas City will have a shot.
