    As a Chiefs fan, I have no expectations to win. I do think the Colts are being vastly overrated right now. Their winning streak was against the worst schedule in the league and they rarely played a good offense. Still, until the Chiefs and Andy Reid prove me wrong in a tight, high pressure game it is hard to think they will win. Go Chiefs!

    You'd think the Chiefs are 14 point dogs the way everyone down in KC is reacting. So pessimistic on the game tomorrow. Hopefully Mahomes can exorcise some demons.

    Home teams look strong. Some are shakier than others, but it's had to pick against them.

    My rank of possible upsets (most likely to least likely):

    Colts over Chiefs - bad weather could slow down KC's offense and Indy's O-line is solid enough to run the ball and limit possessions. Plus, they have as many playoff wins in Arrowhead as the Chiefs do. I think the Chiefs win still, but a Colts win would not shock me at all.

    Chargers over Pats - Chargers have an overlooked defense and have an overlooked team in general being in the same division as the Chiefs. That being said, it's the Patriots with Brady and Belichek at home.

    Cowboys over Rams - Cowboys are hot right now and Elliot is a monster. If they commit to the run and limit possessions, this could get interesting. However, the Rams should win this.

    Eagles over Saints - The Eagles needed help to get into the playoffs and needed two posts to advance last weekend. They have the experience which could carry them to a win over the Saints, but Sean Payton hasn't lost a home playoff game in the dome. I think the Eagles luck stops here.

    Yeah, the Colts have played a weak schedule. But I also think they're better suited to win a cold weather game because of their running game. And that KC defense is a liability. Indy can chew clock, but the trick will be to finish drives with touchdowns. Kicking field goals against an offense as explosive as the Chiefs' is a recipe for disaster. I don't know. Ultimately I think KC gets the W but I wouldn't be shocked if the Colts pull off an upset.
    Luck and Mahomes have a little Favre in their game and are both prone to making a couple WTF throws per game. It might just come down to which defense capitalizes on that.

    That's the thing, the Chiefs have a good O-line too and rank a head of the Colts in rushing for the year. Mahomes takes more sacks mostly because he doesn't throw the ball away a lot yet.

    If you look at who the colts played and the QBs they’ve faced over the past 10 weeks, it’s pretty ugly. Mahomes is on another level than any of them.

    Weather and games like this is when the Chiefs could have used Hunt to run the ball. As a Chiefs fan, I can of expect to lose tomorrow, just saw this **** show enough to not get my hopes up.

    Can someone get this Chiefs game up on the Sportsbook so I can bet on the Colts. I'm afraid that is the only thing from keeping this day from turning into a complete crap fest. The Cheifs are not built to play in the cold snow. At least the Colts are a dome team but this still favors them.

    Long way to go, but KC looks like they're in a different class right now.
