That's true. Other than the Chiefs being the Chiefs, there is no reason we should have won today's game. But they did. The Chiefs failing on the QB sneak pretty much let you know it was meant to be.
I have not really bothered trying to analyze this team a lot this year. Like the matchups. Sure this RB might gash us, or this pass rusher might kill Luck at times, or this QB will throw for x number of yards and we can't cover his TEs.
Unless the game gets out of hand like it has a few times on the road I usually think we will pull it off.
I remember this clip from Harbaugh when it came to the 1995 season and he said something like, "I didn't know how we would win but we WOULD find a way to win."
Like I said in the playoffs I don't know if this formula will work. But, it is not impossible either that a few teams will choke vs. us too under all the pressure.
A lot can happen in a one game elimination set up in the NFL. One and done......
The pressure isn't on us. Out of all the AFC playoff teams our window is the largest for the future outside of maybe the Bengals.
