“Normally we talk about the 24-hour rule, enjoying a win or getting over a loss and bouncing back,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, 32 said after squeaking past the Atlanta Falcons 29-28 on Dec. 4. “And now it’s basically the plane ride home. It’s that short a week. It’s a division game coming up and a big atmosphere, so everything is sped up,” he said. “I think that recovery is important on a short week, guys taking care of their bodies and trying to get it back as soon as possible is the most taxing thing.”
Oakland quarterback Derek Carr, 25, has led the Raiders to explosive second half comebacks that have been a key part of their six game winning streak. The last time they lost was back in week six when they dropped it badly to the Chiefs 26-10. If KC manages to pull one over on Oakland for the second time this season, it would give them an important tiebreaker when it comes to control of the AFC West should both teams end up with identical records as they enter the post-season.
