Kobach lost the case as soon as it was assigned to Judge Julie Robinson. She is one of the most politically biased jurists in the federal court system, and far from trying to overcome her biases to be fair to both sides, she revels in them and does not much care who knows it. Maybe Kobach can win on appeal, but he's a dead duck in this trial court.

Why are they in a wild card game? They were top of the AFC West correct? I don't follow foosball much, and don't much care for the thugs that mostly inhabit the NFL (there are certainly some good guys though). However, I genuinely don't follow the payoff format creation I guess.

The two wild card teams play the two lowest seeded division winners, one of which is the Chiefs. The top two seeded division winners have byes this weekend, and will play the winners of this weekend's games next.
