The regular season is over and the playoff picture is set.
Here is where the fun begins, and right in the centerof that fun is the team everyone should be talking about, from the heart of Kansas City.
While there are several other teams who have talent and experience in their favor, like the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers, the Kansas City Chiefs have something unique.
They have resilience.
Resilience is what brought them from the basement of the AFC West to a commanding run to the wild card spot.
They wentfrom an unimpressive 1 to 5 start, plagued with injuries and bad play, to an unbelievable 10-game winning streak.
The Chiefs have a resilience and determination that will not go under the radarin the playoffs.
In no way, shape or form are they a team whohas been grabbing headlines, butthat’s what works for them.
They are out of the spotlight and they prefer it that way.
But, it wont be that way for long.
With the Chiefs overcoming the odds to cruise into the postseason, they should be the talk of the town because they deserve the recognition.
The beginning of the season was enough to make any team simply want to quit.
But the Chiefs did anything but, as they used their strength on defense to make a statement in the AFC West.
Their offense proved that a big-name quarterback isnt necessary to have a winning team.
Quarterback Alex Smith, who was essentially pushed out of the San Francisco 49ers after the arrival of Colin Kaepernick, has taken his first two seasons in KC to learn the ropes.
Now, with his third season, he has taken the dominant Chiefs to the playoffs.
Smiths ability to protect the ball led him to only throwing seven interceptions on the season.
He also has one of the lowest interception rates in the NFL, as he threw 312 consecutive passes without an interception earlier this season.Click here for reuse options!
