UNDEFEATED!!! KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SQUEAK BY COWBOYS IN UGLY 17-16 VICTORY!!! NEXT STOP: SUPER BOWL!!!
That was probably one of the ugliest football games Kansas City has witnessed in quite a bit.
Cowboys at Chiefs final score: Kansas City hangs on to beat Dallas, 17-16
BUT . . . It turned out the right way and contributed to the mistaken fantasy that the Chiefs have a playoff shot.
Again, these early season games are mostly "gimmes" but that's not gonna stop mainstream media from reporting this minor event as something akin to the Second Coming . . . While ignoring this town's more pressing problems.
As for fanboy belief this Sunday . . . Let's not forget that this town is now known for horrible sportsmanship:
Kansas City's Emilio Bonifacio ejected for spiking helmet after getting picked off by Tigers' Doug Fister
Oh yeah . . . And the Royals aren't really in the playoff race either in any significant way . . . No matter what local MSM would like to believe . . . Nevertheless, Kansas City compliance is easy to manipulate when it comes to a populace that is mostly interested in the Blitz Box and not a challenge to the status quo.
Enjoy the brief moment of Kansas City sports hope/hype . . . Keep eating!!!
