…and what a great weekend of playoff football despite the absence of the Steelers but that’s a rant for another day. Except for what everyone is calling the best playoff game ever between the Chiefs and Bill’s all the teams I wanted to win won. While all the talk has centered about the NFL overtime rules that led to a Kansas City victory the game should never have even gone into overtime. After Buffalo took the lead with seconds left on the clock, how could Buffalo with what is being called the best defense in the NFL allow the Chiefs to get into field goal range to send the game into overtime? Maybe because the Chiefs have the best offense in the league and if not, close to it. But how could the Buffalo coaches not call a squib kick on the ensuing kickoff that would allow precious seconds tick off the clock and not afford as much time with what little there was on the clock for Kansas City to use? Instead, it added to the intrigue of what’s being called a playoff classic. I’ve been reading that a lot of folks believe both offensive teams should get possession of the ball in overtime even if the team that wins the coin toss scores a touchdown on the opening drive like KC did to win yesterday. I agree. As it stands now that only applies on a field goal which would allow the opposing team to match the field goal then the next score wins. Either way I blame the Buffalo coaches for the loss and will be rooting for the Bengal’s to represent the AFC North in the Super Bowl this year. Tough order since the Chiefs despite losing to Cincinnati in the regular season by 3 is already favored by almost a touchdown. Of course, this game will not be played in Cincinnati but in Arrowhead next Sunday afternoon starting at 3.
