Opponent Preview: Kansas City Chiefs against San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The opponent preview continues with the preview of week four, five and six games of the Kansas City Chiefs. Previously, we
previewed games of week 1, 2, 3. Let’s move forward to the next games now.
The season will be up and running at that time. After playing relatively easy games, Chiefs will play three games that can become vital in their overall position.
Week 4: San Diego Chargers
San Diego chargers are coming from an average season, at best from their standards. So they will be up for fight this season. It will be a tough task for the Chiefs to outperform the Chargers, who could become a threatening unit sometimes.
Last season, Chargers finished 8-8 and they are under immense pressure to perform this season and were severely criticised for under performing with such good players on the roster last year.
The last encounter between these two teams ended in Chiefs winning 23-20.
Chiefs and chargers have played 104 games against each other. Chiefs are slightly ahead with 52 wins against 51 while one game was tied. These two sides will play two games against each other this season.
Week 5: Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens are coming from a remarkable 2011 season. Yet they were unable to win the championship. This year they are upbeat about winning the title.
It will be a very difficult task for Chiefs to play at the level of Ravens. Last season, Ravens’ defence was ranked second best in the entire league.
Ravens have been constantly reaching the playoffs since the last few years and it will certainly be difficult for the Chiefs to outscore them.
These sides have played six games against each other. Both teams have three victories each to their credit.
Week 6: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chiefs have an upper hand in this one. Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been pretty poor in their performance for the last few seasons. Last season, Buccaneers fished 4-12 and things are not looking brighter this season as well.
Chiefs have an edge in every aspect against Buccaneers. They have strengthened the roster with good players.
Chiefs should be careful against Buccaneers, though, as they have a new coach and a lot of new players in the squad, which can surprise many teams in the league.
Buccaneers and Chiefs have played 10 games against each other. Both have won five games each.
