Romeo Crennel Says Kansas City Chiefs Will Be Focused, Ready For Denver Broncos

Despite the home loss to the Oakland Raiders on Saturday that knocked them officially out of playoff contention, interim head coach Romeo Crennel says that the Chiefs are going to focused in the right way for the last game of the season. For those fans who think they might mail it in for the sake of a lack of motivation, Crennel says the Chiefs can only focus on what's ahead and play for the pride of finishing strong. Even if they can't make the postseason, finishing out with two of three wins over the Packers and Broncos, this week's foe, would do wonders for momentum heading into the off-season.

"Our guys fought and they hung in there, went into overtime and it took some guts to do that. We didn’t play well enough today in all phases. We made mistakes that cost us," said Crennel. "We had an opportunity to put points on the board at the half and we weren’t where we needed to be. We had a couple of field goals blocked, we got a couple balls thrown over our head, we turned the ball over a couple of times.

"In the NFL it’s hard to win when you do those kinds of things and that’s basically what I told them inside. We still have another game to go, a division game, and we have to take all the energy we’ve got and win that game. That’s going to be important. I just found out the outcome of the Buffalo game. It’s just unfortunate that we weren’t able to win this one but we didn’t do enough to win. That’s all I need to say about that. We’re going to work, we’re going to try to go forward and we’re going to try to do the best we can. That’s what I tell them every week and that’s what we try to do every week. Today wasn’t good enough."
