Don't worry, Chiefs fans: Andy Reid has your back

The Kansas City Star wrote this week that the anticipation for Thursday night's game between the Chiefs and Raiders "is unlike anything seen in a generation."

They ain't wrong. The winner of this huge division matchup will be in first place in the AFC West with an inside track on a coveted first-round bye. The loser will dip all the way to the No. 5 seed. As strange as it sounds for two teams with a combined record of 19-5, Thursday's matchup could be a make-or-break proposition for the game's participants.

The Chiefs will host the game, which is no small factor. Arrowhead Stadium presents one of the best home-field advantages in the league and Chiefs coach Andy Reid wants to make sure the crowd is ready for kickoff.

Love this. It's the type of fun stuff that promotes civic togetherness and reminds you what makes sports fun. Just don't present this to your boss. You will be fired.
