For Pete's Sake

How confident are you that the Chiefs could beat these potential playoff foes?

With one week left in the NFL’s regular-season, the playoff picture remains hazy at best.

In the AFC, five teams have clinched a spot in the postseason, including the Chiefs. However, there are six teams that could lineup against the Chiefs in the playoffs. The Chiefs could face one of those teams at Arrowhead Stadium or on the road.

The six potential opponents: the Colts, Bengals, Broncos, Texans, Steelers and Jets. Denver is the team that could play at Arrowhead or the Chiefs could face the Broncos at Sports Authority Field.

So how do you feel about these matchups? Confident or not?

 

Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is happy his team clinched a playoff spot, but they could have played better in 17-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
