Colts and Chiefs having a go at it before the playoffs
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that they have much in store for the Chiefs and will definitely go for it all as the season is still going.
“I don’t think you do. We’re far enough along in the year … you have enough in the playbook that you can draw from on both sides of the ball and special teams-wise,” Reid said. “I don’t think there’s any reason to do that. Plus, the season is still alive.”
And the Chiefs will be doing all to win the remaining two games in the season as for the playoff spot they will be contending against the Denver Broncos against which they are locked for the AFC West position. Broncos have the advantage of owning the tie breaker but in case they lose any of the remaining two games and the Chiefs end up winning all theirs, then it will be the Chiefs who will be celebrating.
The Broncos last two games will be against the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs remaining two games will be against the Indianapolis Colts and the San Diego Charger. The Chargers still have the chances to make it for a wild card position.
If the Colts manage to win against the Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars then they will have earned a first round playoff bye. So Colts coach Chuck Pagano is focused on this week.
“I think you do what you have to do to win a football game,” said Pagano. “They’ve got a great football team. We have to go on the road and play in the elements. We all know how hard it is to play there.”
Pagano said that for now he was focused on winning the game and what came next would be dealt with at that time.
“We’ll try to win a football game and not really worry about what lies ahead or what is down the road,” he said. “We’ll do, again, whatever is necessary, whatever gives us the best opportunity, the best chance in all three phases to win that game.”
