We have more to prove, so it's hard to buy into any hype that would suggest we get a break this week.
If we were undefeated after having played their schedule & a 2-4 Baltimore Ravens team, or New York Giants team came to Reliant what would you think?

I know Andy Reid has been a much better coach than Gary Kubiak for a long time. But who has he been most recently? 6-0... I know. Again, look at who they beat.

Jags & Giants 0-6
Oakland 2-4
Phily 3-3
Tennessee 3-3
Cowboys 3-3

That list wouldn't impress any of us if those were the Texans' conquest.

Truth of the matter is we don't know who's who yet. It's definitely clearer than it was 6 weeks ago, but we've still got a long way to go.

The Texans weren't in this article's discussion, but there is now also the unknown Case against the Chiefs................
Well that was a refreshing take Doc. I hope the downslide begins about 1500 hours on Sunday.

I hope we're just the team to start the Chiefs crumble.

That'd be really BA!

Go Texans!

If we were undefeated, I would feel differently facing a buttercup team, but I still wouldn't consider this KC team a buttercup. Not a juggernaught either, but given the current unsettled state the Texans are in coming into this game, there's a lot of doubt in predicting the outcome.

I think your assesment of who they've beat is fair, but jaded in that Oakland, philly, tennesse and the cowboys are looking much better if KC lost those games instead. I think KC has been able to do what the Texans haven't...

Get out of their own way. That is the biggest determing factor of how long of a way we've still got to go IMHO.

I read somewhere that KC's schedule to this point was 31st in difficulty to this point. Going forward it will be 7th in difficulty.

I think KC will hit the buzz saw soon and will probably end up somewhere at 10-6 or so. Hopefully that first loss comes today.
