Chiefs say they will play to win the game

Back in September, few imagined that, heading into Week 17, we’d be discussing whether the Kansas City Chiefs would play their starters in the season finale or rest them for the playoffs. In recent years, Week 17 has merely been an opportunity for Kansas City’s young players to get one more week of experience.

On Tuesday, Todd Haley told the Kansas City Star that he wouldn’t be pulling a Bill Polian and rolling over. (Okay, he didn’t use the words – what Haley did say was that the Chiefs would play to win against the Raiders at Arrowhead on Sunday.)

“We’re a transitioning team,” Haley said. “Maybe some teams can look at games differently, but I know our group right now — with where we are in our development — we need to approach them the same way, which is get ready to win and put everything into figuring out how to get to three wins in this quarter (of the season).”

Makes sense. The Chiefs are not exactly a proven team. Even this season, you could argue they’re not proven. With the exception of either the Rams or Seahawks, the Chiefs have not defeated a playoff-bound team this season. (To be fair, the only non-NFC West playoff-bound team they’ve faced was the Colts, who beat them 19-10 back in Week 5).
