Well the Chiefs are definitely peaking as I said. Early in the year we had some problems on the O-line, and at one point Trent Green had been hit more than any other NFL QB.
LT Roaf was hurt and RT Welbourn was suspended. Their replacements really sucked.
Both are healthy/active now and have really played well. The offense is back to form, Larry Johnson is just on a ridiculous tear of 100-yard games, and the passing game has hit it's stride.
Defensively we've been improving week to week.
We've done a very good job against the run all year and rank No. 5 in the league. The only team to have real success against us this year was Denver, and last week we still managed to hold them well under their yards per game and yards per carry averages.
Passing D is statistically bad, but has improved tremendously since Dexter McCleon exited the starting lineup. The Broncos had a big first half last week and that was our first snag in awhile, but they did a great job in the second half.
Pass rush is decent, and Allen has been a beast. I'm counting on him raping your offensive tackles if that's not too mean of me.
Ryan Sims is back too and played last week for the first time since the bye. We should get Carlos Hall back too and he's a pretty decent speed rusher as well.
The LBs have been great all year and I am expecting LOTS of blitzing this week. Bledsoe is a statue so that's pretty appealing. We could have had Plummer sacked 4 or 5 times last week but he snaked out of it.
Our kicker and punter are fine, but our coverage units stink. Kickoff coverage really sucks...it's our biggest weakness IMO. I've seen Tyson Thompson and he can fly so I'm worried.
