Since Week 4, the Kansas City Chiefs are 8-0 against teams that are currently under .500 and 0-4 against teams that are currently over .500. That 0-4 record includes Sunday's 23-7 loss to Indianapolis. 

Chiefs cornerback Dunta Robinson is well aware of his team's struggles against 'powerhouse' teams and Sunday's loss seems to have him wondering if the Chiefs can beat teams from the NFL's upper-echelon. 

"We gotta look in the mirror and we gotta decide what kind of team we want to be moving forward," Robinson said, via the Kansas City Star. "Yeah, OK. You dominate Oakland. Yeah, you dominate (Washington). But what are we going to do when we face other powerhouses?"

Robinson didn't just question his team team following Sunday's loss, he also complimented them. The 10th-year veteran said that the 2013 Chiefs are the best team he's ever played for, which is actually a strong statement because Robinson spent his last three seasons in Atlanta playing for three straight playoff teams. 

"This is the best team I've ever been on. I played in Atlanta last year... and we were a pretty good football team," Robinson said. "But if we don’t get focused, then we're going to be sitting right back here (in a few weeks)."

The Chiefs have two weeks to figure out how to beat the powerhouse teams of the NFL. Kansas City is locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC and will open postseason play on the road against either New England, Cincinnati or the Indianapolis team that just beat them on Sunday.
