07:21 AM ET 12.04 | Three losses in three weeks sure has dulled the shine on Kansas City, but they're vowing a comeback. Perhaps so. But in the first nine contests, the Chiefs registered 23 takeaways, turned the ball over only eight times, and had a lopsided plus-15 advantage in the crucial turnover differential category. They scored seven non-offensive touchdowns, all but one of them on defense, and four of them on interception runbacks. ... Over the three-game skid: Only three takeaways, four turnovers, and a minus-one differential. One non-offensive score, that coming Sunday when Knile Davis ran through stop signs from teammates and raced 108 yards with a kickoff return. Just 14 points from takeaways. A slight reduction in total yards from scrimmage for go-to guy Charles. And maybe most telling, only one sack.

Nothing that the Redskins won't fix.

They're still a solid team, but they better hope someone else takes out Denver in the playoffs.

Someone will, but that someone is going to be Seattle.

Wrong conference Deb. You'll have to wait for the SB for Seattle to thrash Denver, but you knew that already.

That's my prediction for February. And the Farmers' Almanac has a prediction, too.

He has a way of doing that...

No pass pressure, suspect secondary and receivers that drop everything.

Other than that, they are great.

Ya those Washington Oneida's are not very good at football. Someone is sure to get scalped that I will put my last 2 colored beads or seashells on.

Actually I love native Americans my nephew is half native American- Miwok . He is a 1/10,000th % owner in a Reservation casino. That entitles him to 1 free cup of firewater each month.
