They did play just two weeks ago. I still content the Chiefs are missing some key players to injury, which hurts. Also, the weather will be fairly nice. 50 degrees, very light winds, mostly sunshine. Perfect for Manning. Also, I really think you need a coach like Belicheck to stop Manning. Someone who knows when to take risks, when to blitz, how to disrupt him. Another example is the Superbowl a few years ago when Sean Payton of NO changed schemes throughout the game. Two weeks ago I think the Chiefs blitzed twice all day. They never touched Manning. Zero sacks, zero knockdowns, zero batted balls, zero hurries. His jersey was perfectly clean. Andy Reid is one of the most conservative coaches in the NFL. Unless he can get out of that skin, in a game like this...
Very eager to watch Arizona and Philly tangle. Also to see what Seattle is really worth when they face Brees, Payton and the Saints, in a game the Saints really need. Percy Harvin is still not practicing and likely out, with Seattle not wanting to rush things. Brandon Browner is in limbo, still injured while awaiting appeal. If the appeal is reduced to 4 games he will be back for the playoffs. If not, his time in Seattle, and maybe the NFL, is done.
A bright spot for the 49ers is that Michael Crabtree will finally suit up for the 49ers and likely see some action. However, as someone with a burst of speed coming of an Achilles tear, it remains to be seen how well he plays. I'm sure the Niners are just happy to have him back, period. And if he's anything close to normal by season's end, all the better.
