The AFC West champion could well be decided when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The Chiefs won't be at full strength when the two teams square off, but at least one defensive stalwart says he is healing.
Linebacker Tamba Hali says he will play. Let's just say Chiefs Coach Andy Reid is cautiously optimistic.
Hali rolled his ankle in the second quarter of the Chiefs' loss to the Chargers last Sunday. Fellow linebacker Justin Houston, meanwhile, is doubtful for Sunday.
It's second time in three weeks for a Chiefs-Broncos matchup. Both teams are 9-2 overall, but Denver won the first game -- so a Kansas City loss will essentially put them two games behind the Broncos for first place due to the tie breaker with four games remaining.
We'll have the game Sunday on Country 101.7 FM. Pregame starts at 2 pm with kickoff a little after 3 pm.
