Chiefs Keep Playoff Hopes On Life Support
KANSAS CITY (AP) -- The way this season has gone for the Kansas City Chiefs, it only figured that Kyle Orton would hurt his finger on his first play with his new team.
The Chiefs have been waylaid by injuries, in-fighting and inconsistency. Their best players have been bruised, battered and beaten down. The losses have been by stunning margins, the victories by the smallest, and yet somehow they still have a chance to make the playoffs.
Kansas City (5-7) is two games behind Oakland and Denver, but still has games to play against both of them. The Chiefs have also beaten the Raiders once this season.
That gives them plenty to pay for starting Sunday against the Jets.
