Itís no secret that the Chiefs, womens Brandon Doughty Jersey,once firmly in control of the AFC West, Kansas Cityís collapse has been the worst in the history of the league., have been on a downward trend lately. But according to this article by'womens John Brown Jersey,

538 uses a rating system called the Elo rating to determine team rankings and win probabilities. The Elo system doesnít just look at the current season, or to sudden success after long periods of being awful (think 2016 Raiders).,Authentic Brandon Doughty Jersey>, but goes back several years and looks at a large sample size of team performance. This makes it more reliable and less likely to have knee-jerk reactions to the bumps in the road teams normally go through

But the Chiefs this year are a special case. After their 4-0 start,Authentic Chandler Jones Jersey, they had an Elo rating of 1701. Thatís really good. And then they lost to the Steelers. And then they lost to the Giants. And then they lost to the Bills. And now the Chiefs have an Elo rating of 1584,Authentic John Brown Jersey, and the worst since the 1986 Bears., which is not very good. Thatís the worst short-term drop in history

The Chiefsí M.O. has been,womens Haason Reddick Jersey, in recent years, K.C. came out with their hair on fire. Kareem Hunt was looking like Barry Sanders and Alex Smith was a more mobile Joe Montana.,Authentic Chad Williams Jersey to have a stifling defense and an offense that is good enough to score more than the defense allows. But this year>womens Chad Williams Jersey

It was a mirage. Hunt has turned back into a pumpkin, and has reverted to the Captain Checkdown mentality which hamstrung him in San Francisco and in his initial time with the Chiefs.>womens Dorian Johnson Jersey going from 6.3 yards per carry in his first five games to a mere 3.2 yards per carry since then. Smith has been woeful as wellwomens Budda Baker Jersey,

The Chiefsí ability to finish drives on offense has come to a screeching halt. They were scoring on 52.8% of their drives in their first five games,womens T. J. Logan Jersey, and without Eric Berry they simply canít get the job done. The Chiefsí offense has reached levels of ineptitude normally reserved for the Broncos- the only team KC has beaten during their current run of futility., but only 33.3% since then. Thatís leaving their defense out there for far too longAuthentic Haason Reddick Jersey,

they have plenty of divisional games coming up.>Authentic Budda Baker Jersey, They have five games remaining- at the Jets,While the Chiefs still have a good shot at the playoffs because there are no other teams in their division who are over .500, hosting the Raiders, hosting the Chargers, and I assure you that the Broncos we saw in the fourth quarter of Sundayís game in Oakland would spank these Chiefs worse than the Bills did., hosting the Dolphins, and at the Broncos. They are very capable of losing each one of those gameswomens Takkarist McKinley Jersey

if they win that game in Kansas City will hold a tiebreaker over the Chiefs. The Raidersí remaining schedule shapes up favorably- Giants,<womens Chandler Jones Jersey,The Raiders,at Chiefs,Cowboys, at the Eagles, and may not give it 100% against the Silver and Black.,Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey and ďatĒ the Chargers. Of those games, the only one the Raiders seem really unlikely to win is the Eagles game on Christmas Eve. However,itís also possible that Philly will have locked up home field by that point

The Raiders have put themselves in a bit of a bind with their early season woes and that ugly four-game losing streak. But, they find themselves at long last benefiting from the misfortune of others, and the Raiders could be looking at a 4 seed with a record of 9-7.,Authentic Dorian Johnson Jersey particularly the Chiefs. Itís entirely possible that the Week 17 tilt with the Chargers will be for the division crown,Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey
