The Kansas City Chiefs control their own destiny for the No. 1 overall pick in next year's NFL Draft. Not that that's anything to brag about, but the worst team in the NFL can put some distance between itself and the worst team in the NFC this weekend when it hosts the Carolina Panthers.
It's been a disappointing season for both the Chiefs (1-10) and the Panthers (3-8), two teams that had pretty high expectations as up-and-coming teams after missing the playoffs last season. Alas, the Chiefs have faltered under terrible quarterback play and the Panthers have completely imploded after losing several close games.
It's safe to say the Chiefs-Panthers matchup isn't the sexiest this weekend. Thursday night features one of the top rivalries in the league when the Saints visit the Falcons. The Ravens and Steelers renew their rivalry, the Seahawks and Bears meet for NFC playoff positioning, the Broncos host the resurgent Buccaneers and the Giants and Redskins meet on Monday night in some of the week's top NFL matchups.
