    The Chiefs need to play for momentum, plus knocking a division rival from the playoffs is always motivation. They can't move in the seeding though.

    Tannehill hurt his knee, but said he was OK, so who knows.

    Not sure about the Walrus.

    The Walrus is no longer in Cleveland, but his legacy will live on forever via our old school Photoshop contests:

    Here is a good article from grantland on stats/probabilities of each team's chances to make the playoffs (scroll about 2/3's of the way down to AFC Playoff Projection). Since the Steelers need the most help, naturally we have the worst probability of making it in. But he gives us a 6% chance to get in.

    I would bet that the 6% has increased since yesterday...

    Andy Reid considering resting his starters

    The Chiefs are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC regardless of what happens for them next weekend, so they may not expose some of their starters to the risk of injury when they travel to San Diego.

    Andy Reid said Monday, via Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, that he is still making up his mind about how to approach the game with the Chargers. Reid noted that heíd had success after resting players for the postseason in the past, so players like Jamaal Charles and Alex Smith may be getting plenty of rest before Kansas City plays in the Wild Card round.

    The biggest argument to make for playing the starters for at least some of Week 17 might be the way the Chiefs looked against the Colts on Sunday. It was a listless performance across the board and Reid could opt for ending the regular season on a better note next week.

    Reidís decision could impact more than just the Chiefs. The Chargers are one of the four teams still alive in the race for the sixth playoff spot in the AFC and a win would seem to be more likely when facing second-stringers for the Chiefs.

    I don't see the chiefs or Jets winning this weekend. The Ravens losing can definately happen.

    I mainly want to see the Steelers reach that 8-8 record. That alone would be a great victory and something I didn't think they could achieve.

    Whether we make the playoffs or not, it would be a good building block for next year.
