A Break Down of the Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Schedule

kansas_city_chiefs_rough_wallpaper-normalThe NFL finally released the 2013 schedule this past Thursday. With a little break period before the NFL Draft we can do a week by week break down of the Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Schedule. How will they do? Will it be better or more of the same? I mean, it can’t get any worse… Right?

Week 1. @ Jacksonville Jaguars

jaguarsJacksonville finished last season with a 2-14 record like the Chiefs did. While KC fixed all the holes in their D and put an end to (hopefully) bad QB play and poor coaching, the Jaguars did not. With a new coach and (Blame) Blaine Gabbert at the helm look for the Chiefs to take this game easily.

Chiefs Win!

Week 2. Home vs Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys Logo - Teach Me GenealogyAhhhh… yes… America’s team… The Cowboys finished 2012 with an 8-8 record. This offseason they made Tony Romo one of the highest paid QB’s in the league. Really? Tony Romo? That would be like the Chiefs extending Matt Cassel’s contract and giving him more money after a mediocre year… ummmmm… Let’s bypass that last statement… KC will look to be establishing that all important home field advantage in front of a fan base that is hungry for blood. Look for the Chiefs to shove that “America’s Team” title and Romo’s big contract down their throats.

Chiefs Win!

Week 3. @ Philadelphia Eagles

PhiladelphiaEagles_logoCoach Reid returns to Philly! This is going to be a huge build up game for the media but I really don’t think the game will live up to the hype. No one wants to win more in Philly then Coach Reid does and he can sugar coat his feelings towards Philadelphia all he wants. Reid will be out for blood and what a better place to draw it. Look for the Chiefs to put a hurting on the Eagles, and Reid will have his revenge!

Chiefs Win!

Week 4. Home vs New York Giants

New-York-Giants-LogoThe Giants finished last years season with a 9-7 record. I really don’t know why I am worried about this team as much as I am because on paper the Chiefs match up well with the Giants. It might be because the Chiefs will be coming off an emotional win in Philadelphia and might not be up to par. I hope I’m wrong and the fans can push them over the edge and pump them up for  a win. However look for the Chiefs to drop one to New York.

Chiefs Lose

Week 5. @ Tennessee Titans

Tennessee-Titans-logo-psd56766The Titans finished the season with a 6-10 record in 2012. Tennessee could really never put anything together offensively nor could they stop anyone from scoring on them. They were able to maintain some good players and add a couple here and there but did not fix some of the glaring holes they had. So look for more of the same this year and an easy win for the Chiefs!

Chiefs Win!

Week 6. Home vs Oakland Raiders

imagesraidersRaider Week! These weeks are some of the best weeks in KC. Chiefs fans pull out the Raider Hater t-shirts and trash is spoken all over KC, there is nothing better then playing the Raiders! I don’t know what it is but for some reason the Raiders always put on a show against the Chiefs. No matter how good or bad either team is, it is always a close game. Look for the Chiefs to get the better of this showdown this year.

Chiefs Win!

Week 7. Home vs Houston Texans

texansThe Texans ended with a 12-4 record being the first place team in the AFC South last year. At times the Texans showed an unstoppable offense, but the powerful defense is what stands out. No sense in believing they will miraculously fall on their face in 2013. Despite home field advantage KC falls to the Texans.

Chiefs Lose

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 8. Home vs Cleveland Browns

Cleveland_Browns_DawgWith a 5-11 2012 record the Browns don’t seem like they will get the best of anybody this year but I believe the Browns are one of those sleeper teams. You know, the ones who come up and bit you on your rear end when you least expect it. Make no mistake, Cleveland will be a better team in 2013 but not good enough to beat the renewed Chiefs.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 9. @ Buffalo Bills

buffalo_bills_logo-9050The 6-10 Bills were not the greatest thing since slice bread last year but for all fairness they were a lot better then KC. Bills will be working with a new coaching staff just like the Chiefs but KC has a secrete weapon, Coach Reid and 6 Pro Bowlers. KC will also be looking for a good win to go into the bye week with. Kansas City will beat the Buffalo Bills quite moderately.

Chiefs Win!

Week 10. BYE

NFL Lockout Looms As Negotiations Are ExtendedA little rest and relaxation for the Kansas City Chiefs.  If all has gone the way described above then they deserve it.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 11. @ Denver Broncos

Broncos-Logo-head-with-team-nameI believe the Chiefs can compete with the Denver Broncos unlike last year. Just in Free Agency KC has added the depth and talent to fill in the holes it had last year when these two teams faced off. I do believe KC will win one of the two times these two teams meet in 2013, but even though KC will be coming off a Bye and will be hyped for this game, look for KC too drop a nail biter in Denver.

Chiefs Lose

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 12. Home vs San Diego Chargers

ChargersWhile the San Diego Chargers had an ok season last year, I believe they will be more of the same in 2013. No big moves in Free Agency and what they can pick up in the Draft will not push them in any big way to put W’s in the win column. Plus it seems there is some doubt in the Chargers camp about QB Phillip Rivers and if he is the guy. It looks like he may have lost the fan base and after the fans turn against you soon turns the team and then the organization. Look for the Chiefs to win big at Arrowhead.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 13. Home vs Denver Broncos

Broncos-Logo-head-with-team-nameIn week 13 Denver will visit the Chiefs at Arrowhead. The loudest stadium in the NFL will not disappoint. Fans will be rowdy and fired up for this game. Not only did the Broncos beat the Chiefs in week 11 but this game has playoff implications. Another great game but I think the Chiefs hold the advantage in this battle.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 14. @ Washington Redskins

redskinsThe Washington Redskins finished the season 10-6 and first in their division. This team will pose a big threat for Kansas City all focused around their QB RG3. KC is known not to do well against mobile QB’s and RG3 is not only mobile but can sling the ball down the field with incredible accuracy. This game all depends on the health of RG3, if he is healthy this will be a loss, but if not the Chiefs should pull this one out. I will mark this one down as RG3 is healthy and Chiefs lose to the Skins.

Chiefs Lose

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 15. @ Oakland Raiders

imagesraidersIt’s getting close to the end of the season and now teams are jockeying for playoff runs. The Chiefs will be looking to either pull out as the AFC West Champs or hopefully have a good enough record to slip in as a wild card team. Kansas City will be trying desperately to keep up with Peyton Manning and the Broncos so every division win is crucial. Look for KC to hold nothing back against the struggling Raiders.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 16. Indianapolis Colts

colts-logoIf there is another team in the NFL that Chiefs fans hate more then the Raiders it would be the Colts. The Colts and the Chiefs have history. It was the Colts that ended a playoff appearance in ’95 as well as both playoff appearances in ’03 & ’06 and Chiefs fans are still a little P.O’ed about it. With this in mind the Colts will again be in position to end another playoff birth for the Chiefs if they win this game. The Chiefs will want to prove to their fan base they are the best in West with this final home game at Arrowhead. Look for the Chiefs to pull away late in the game and take the (W) away from the Colts.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Week 17. @ San Diego Chargers

ChargersThe Chargers will look to play the spoiler for Kansas City in this final game in 2013. San Diego will want to end yet another mediocre season on a good note by beating a good team and what a better team to beat then a division rival that may have a chance at the playoffs. Be careful Chiefs and remember the good old saying “Any given Sunday”. If the Chiefs fall asleep for this game the Chargers will pull this one off. Look for Chiefs to counter this with one of the best games they have all year. Coach Reid will want to go into the post season winning.

Chiefs Win!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

imagesNow all this depends on a coaching staff that drives the Chiefs to win and a QB, Alex Smith, that is all that people are hyping him up to be. The Chiefs must be better on these two areas before they can do any of the above things that I am predicting. I know, it sounds like I am trying to give myself an out if it all goes wrong. After going down the road of Broken Dreams with the Chiefs year after year, you would be absolutely right!

As of now I see the Kansas City Chiefs finishing the 2013 regular season with a record of…

12-4
