Chiefs Continue Push for First Round Bye with the Bears on the Schedule

Chiefs Continue Push for First Round Bye with the Bears on the Schedule

The Kansas City Chiefs (10-4) take their current four game winning streak to Chicago in a Sunday Night Football match-up against the Bears (7-7). These teams are different in regards to how their seasons have gone. The Chiefs have already locked down a playoff spot and are hoping to fight their way into a higher seed while the Bears were officially eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to the Packers last week.

Going into the season, both these teams were expected to make some noise. The Chiefs have done their part up to this point while the Bears have really struggled offensively and have been putting their very good defense in tough spots. It all started with the poor beginning of the season play of QB Mitchell Trubisky for the Bears. At one point, people were looking at him to make major strides and push this Bears team to the next level. Even though Trubisky has played better as of late, he has taken a major step back to where the Bears have to consider that he is not the answer at QB for them in the future.

Regardless of the Bears not being in playoff contention, I expect the Bears to come out and try to hurt the Chiefs chances at a first round bye in the playoffs. Teams that aren’t in the playoff race any longer love to play spoilers to teams with their eyes set on the ultimate goal of winning the Super Bowl. Plus, this is a match-up between former coach mates in Matt Nagy and Andy Reid. Matt Nagy served as the Quarterback Coach/Offensive Coordinator in his five season tenure with the Chiefs. So there is some added fire to this match-up with Matt Nagy trying to best his former boss in Andy Reid.

The Chiefs have gotten themselves in the playoffs and are trying to pass the Patriots or Ravens for one of the top spots in the AFC to have a bye week and home field advantage. The Chiefs have the tiebreaker against both the Patriots and Ravens. To pass the Patriots the Chiefs just need to win out and hope the Pats lose one of their last two games. To pass the Ravens, more things need to happen due to the Ravens holding a 12-2 record.

With the playoffs quickly approaching, the Chiefs have to be playing their best football. Currently this Chiefs team has looked very good on their four game winning streak with their defense coming alive and seemingly improving week by week, while the Chiefs offense looks to continue to be its dominant self with the reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and the rest of this high power offense. It will be a good test to see if this Chiefs defense can continue the tear it has been on and also for this top ranked offense to see if they can have their way with a very good Bears defense that is ranked top ten in most statistics. It is going to be a good one in Chicago and I can’t wait for Sunday Night.
