It's week 10 in the NFL, and with only 7 weeks left in the season some teams are starting to panic as the playoffs are just around the bend. One of those teams is my beloved Kansas City Chiefs, who are 3-5 and staring up at Denver and the Raiders. Unfortunately, the Chiefs are headed to Denver to play Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. I use to like Peyton Manning, back when he was an Indianapolis Colt who only beat the Chiefs during the playoffs, but then, Peyton joined the enemy and donned the orange and blue, and all reverence for the great Peyton Manning left the building for me. Peyton just has my Chiefs number. Always has. In 13 career starts against the Chiefs, Peyton has a 12-1 record. 12-1. The last time the Chiefs beat a Peyton Manning team was in 2004. Since that game, in which Trent Green was the starting quarterback, the Chiefs have had nine different guys play quarterback: Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle, Tyler Thigpen, Matt Cassel, Tyler Palko, Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn, Chase Daniel, and of course, Alex Smith. NINE DIFFERENT QUARTERBACKS. I love my Chiefs, I will root wildly for them tomorrow, and I will watch them fall again to Peyton-freaking-Manning.
Carolina bumped off the Green Bay Packers last week, once again, Cam and the Panthers are showing that they are a team to be reckoned with. Of course, Tom Brady and Patriots won...AGAIN. I'm guessing they won't be losing any time soon. Bengals won again, and they, too, remain undefeated. Who will be the last defeated standing? My guess--The Pats.
Fantasy fans: do not forget that San Diego, Indianapolis, San Francisco, and Atlanta have byes this week, so set your line-ups accordingly. Last week, my record was barely over .500 with a 7-6 record bring the year total to 72-46. Hopefully, I can do better than that.
