So I'm mostly going to copy and paste my comment in the Cowboys thread: I don't know how -- at home, mind you! -- that Chiefs offense can only score 13 points.  
Dropped passes, fumbles, penalties.  Add to that poor run defense and it adds up to a loss.

Nova, given how tenuous KC has been this year I expect more. Probably 9-7 or 10-6 (and the Raiders may win the division if they keep it up).

9-7 or 10-6 would have to be considered a huge disappointment after last year and the start to this season. They've hit the skids a bit, but surely they'll cruise the regular season; the real test will come in the playoffs.

If the Raiders win that division, I'll eat my head.

Pics or it didn't happen!

I don't disagree that some view my prediction as a big drop. In what I have seen, they are a tenuous team. In order for the Raiders to pull it off, they will need help from the Chiefs in terms of tanking. I think Denver is in the basement and the Chargers are playing even sloppier football than the Chiefs.

Some of the tears here in town did taste delicious this morning...

So, Earl, you gonna stay with the Raiders when they up sticks and head for their residency in Las Vegas? If you want a new team, the Chiefs promise to be exciting for years to come! Loyal to their long-time city and fans, and with none of that annoying corporate dysfunction!

A battle so far, as the Chiefs continue to struggle with poorly-time penalties and Mahomes' recurring ankle injury.  The latter has to be in the minds of opposing defenders as they go after him...bump the ankle.

Wait...you get a drive-ending endzone pick with 40 seconds on the clock before the half, and you run a pass play from your own 20?

QB is hit for a fumble...Texans recover and score on the next play.  A one point lead is now a six point deficit.

Things are getting Miami stupid in KC.

Without acknowledging that 78jazz may be right (ahem), there are some troubling signs for the Chiefs. I think Mahomes may be smelling himself and believing some of his slurpy press -- if he's playing on a bum ankle, there's no way he should be forcing some of those throws off one leg.

And -- beyond penalties galore -- is this defense so bad? Even improving six spots from last year would have been an improvement, but they're basically where they were before the new coordinator, etc.

Yeesh.

Not even close.   Did you see that clusterfuck of a call on that 2 of conversion in Miami?  I'd be surprised if there weren't significant conversations in the league offices of stripping the pick after that shit.

I don't know if I think Mahomes believes his own hype, but rather he still hasn't quite figured out when to throw the ball away and to learn that not every pass has to be a bomb (23rd for TDs in the red zone may be a reflection of this).

I stick to my guns: 9-7 or 10-6. I may be wrong, but unless something changes fast, goodbye 13-3/12-4.

(If they lose Thursday, then I would say they are REALLY in trouble.)

Also Nova, I am going to get out my discs to get you that last goodie you want.
