3 in the Kee: For a flawed, depleted Chiefs roster, 9-7 or 8-8 feels about right

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Admit it: If they'd have told you after Titans 26, Andy Gang 10, that you'd still be playing for a shot -- albeit a very, very, very, very, very, very long one -- at a postseason berth in Week 17, Kansas City Chiefs fans, you'd have bitten on that one. Hard. Or if somebody told you (to coin a documentary promo) the Chiefs (8-7) would basically be without Derrick...

As defined by the stat-tracking site SportingCharts.com, toxic differential is the difference between big-yardage...

. @mmigliore: Are the Bills ready to Outlast the Other AFC Playoff Hopefuls?

Chiefs move to 5-3 after a close win versus the Jets
