KANSAS CITY, Mo. A national TV network isolated Sundays game at Arrowhead Stadium, flexing it to late afternoon to showcase its first-place-on-the-line stature. They brought in their top broadcasting crew. They ran teaser commercials throughout the week, billing it a must-watch game.
Over 2 hours and 48 minutes, the Chiefs delivered a resounding message of another kind. Theyre not only well on their way to another AFC West crown after a 40-9 blowout against the Raiders, but they provided evidence that the gap within the division has few, if any, signs of narrowing.
The Chiefs can clinch the division title and accompanying playoff berth as early as this weekend (with a win and Oakland loss), placing their reign atop the West on the verge of becoming four years.
