The Kansas City Chiefs were 7-1 against opponents that finished the 2016 season in the top 10 in scoring. And they didn’t collect those seven wins by employing a ball-control offense aimed at keeping the ball away from their high-scoring opponents.
They won most of those games by outscoring their opponents: 33 and 37 points against the Chargers, 26 against the Raiders, 27 against the Saints, 30 against the Colts and 29 against the Falcons. Only in a 21-13 win over the Raiders did the Chiefs fail to surpass their season scoring average of 24.3 points.
The Chiefs might be wise to remember that as they prepare for Sunday’s divisional round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium. The Steelers are yet another opponent that finished in the top 10 in scoring, in their case tied for 10th at 24.9 points per game. Pittsburgh, in quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell, has a collection of skill players that most other teams can only envy.

Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is meeting with Buffalo Bills ownership for a second time concerning the team’s coaching vacancy.
Bills owner Terry Pegula and his wife, co-owner Kim Pegula, tapped Bills general manager Doug Whaley to lead the coaching search after Rex Ryan was fired Dec. 27. Whaley, who will enter his fifth season as Bills general manager in 2017, said he was part of a “committee approach” that included team president Russ Brandon when Ryan was hired in 2015.
McDermott has discussed with the Bills the staff he would like to put together, and former San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy is a candidate for offensive coordinator if McDermott gets the job in Buffalo, the sources said. McCoy was the Denver Broncos’ offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012 before becoming the Chargers’ head coach in 2013.
