The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t won a home playoff game since 1994 when Joe Montana led a late touchdown drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since January 11th, 1970 the Chiefs have had 4 playoff wins while the Colts have 4 playoff wins against the Chiefs alone! Chiefs fans are nervous having to face this Colts team for a now 5th time in the playoffs and rightfully so. The Chiefs only have 2 home playoff wins in their history and if they lose yet another one, therapists in the Kansas City metro area are going to be busy come Monday. However, the Chiefs have the MVP of the league in Patrick Mahomes so this isn’t the same Chiefs with the likes of Steve Bono, Elvis Grbac, Trent Green, Matt Cassel, or even Alex Smith. For the first time, in a long time, the Kansas City Chiefs can say they have their very own franchise quarterback and not an attempt to turn someone else’s trash into their treasure. It’s time for the Chiefs to exorcise the demons of playoff failures past and look toward a new and bright future with the most exciting quarterback the NFL has to offer!

No NFL season is the same as the next due to injuries, free agency, the draft, trades, and players retiring (ask the 49ers about this one) so we look at the changes teams have gone through and predict what the upcoming season will hold. Can Peyton Manning stave off old age for another go at a championship? Can Tom Brady come back from the deflate gate mess and suspension and pull a rabbit out of his hat one more time for Super Bowl win number 5? The Bills and Jets had impressive off-seasons, but will that translate into any more wins, especially since they’re lacking in the quarterback department? We will go through our 2015 NFL predictions and try to make sense of the season ahead. Continue reading “2015 NFL Predictions”

Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger are true franchise quarterbacks, but earlier this season there were questions surrounding both on if we were starting to see the end of their careers sooner than we expected.
