The win against Buffalo is going to be picked apart. Heck, it is already. Including a little by this sexy beast of a sports columnist here but I hope we can all keep level heads about this: The Chiefs have been on the good end of a lot of good breaks this year, but they were on the bad end of two specific bad breaks in Buffalo that might’ve kept it from being a blowout win (more on this below). Also, saying the Chiefs aren’t winning style points is not the same thing as saying they’re a bad team. The NFL is stacked for parity, especially this year, and if this is the worst 9-0 team ever that’s better than being the best 8-1 team ever. Anyway, you guys got me going this week. Up over 3,000 words. So we might as well just get to it. The reading recommendation is Seth Wickersham’s piece on the retired Rolando McClain, and the eating recommendation is the Ol’ Smoky at Danny Edwards. As always, thanks for your help and thanks for reading.
