I'll be the first to admit this will probably come across as a bit selfish, but here goes.
A fun and exciting season is just about to close, and it's not looking like either of these teams have a shot at making the playoffs. Kansas City's is... miniscule. But if I Kansas City is to make the playoffs, Buffalo may have just as important a role as the Chiefs
themselves, going through Denver.
I've always had a sort of grudge against Buffalo. Whether it was them kicking our asses in the playoffs during the 90's, or the tail-whipping you inflicted on us the first game of the 2011 season, before all the injuries that I can use as an excuse now. But I always end up becoming a fan by seasons end. They have always been an interesting team to watch for me, they line up and play the game how it should be played. They were one of the best teams in football at the beginning of the season, Fred Jackson
was on his way to First Team All-Pro. Fitzpatrick was expected to make the Pro Bowl. After mowing down KC, beating Oakland, they showed they weren't pretenders by silencing the Patriots
Where has that team gone? Amidst the injuries, the losses and the overall demoralization of the team, I believe deep down inside this is still one of the better teams in the league. They have talent, class (for the most part, every team has it's flaws), and giant-killing ferocity that was so prevalent early on in the season.
Some folks have already written off this Bills
game, but I just don't get why. The Broncos are easily one of the most overrated teams in football.
Sorry for that little rant. For the real question, what will be the key to defeating Denver?
Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
