Chiefs Pull Off Upset of the Year

chiefsIf anyone took the NFL betting odds on Kansas City in Sunday’s game they’re sitting on a pile of money right now. When the Chiefs hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 11 there was perhaps no bigger mismatch on the board. And yet that’s what makes the NFL betting lines so interesting.

The Chiefs were 0-12 at home in their previous dozen NFL betting matchups and little to no reason to expect to win this game. The offense has been terrible all year, it just scored its first rushing TD of the year in week 10 and the defense ranks among the worst in the league.

Yet somehow when it was all said and done the Chiefs had strung together their second win in a row and knocked off one of the top teams in the NFL betting lines this year.

The tables have now turned for the Steelers who once looked like a lock for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The team now has to win five of its next six games to ensure it will even make the NFL wagering this season.

Injuries have taken their toll on this team and with Big Ben, Troy Polamalu and Chris Keamotu all banged up this team is far from full strength.

But in the wild world of the NFL the action is always unpredictable. One week a 2-8 team can knock off a 6-3 team and momentum in one direction or the other can re-write an entire season. For the Chiefs this upset could go a long way in salvaging an otherwise forgettable season and for the Steelers, the loss could be just the tip of the iceberg for a total collapse.
