local media here in KC starts coverage at 4 pm today
Obviously, I forgot to change "Dallas" to "Philadelphia" when I copied and pasted from the previous game's thread. (Thanks, Chiefster, for correcting my oversight.) Fortunately, I didn't forget to actually list Eagles players in the Injury Report.
I made one mistake in 6 long posts. You made three mistakes in one 4 word sentence.
Good job on not forgetting the apostrophe in "We're," though.

I'm VERY nervous about this game. I hate it that Vegas has us as the favorite. Whether it is true or not, it always seems to me as if we don't do well when we are favored.
I'm also worried about our offense. They have only scored 38 points (21 against the Jags) for an average of 19 points per game and last week they had several opportunities with drives starting near mid field when they came away with nothing other than pinning the cowgirls deep. I have a hard time seeing us beating Philthy with somewhere between 19 and 24 points. It seems to me that we are going to need at least 28 points to win this game. I think we especially need to get JC and DB more involved in the offense. We need a big running night from JC.
Last week our O-line had a rough time handling the cowgirls pass rushing. Smith was sacked 4 times and forced to run the ball himself quite a bit. I think we are going to need much better O-line play this week if we are going to have a chance to win this game.
Our Defense has been hell-for-stout this year but I don't have any sort of gut feeling if we can shut down Philthy's fast-paced no huddle offense. Philthy has scored 63 points (31.5 points per game) and I don't like our chances if they score more than 23.
Keys to the game as I see it....
1) Getting Smith into the Red Zone. If we get him there 5 times, we should win this game.
2) Our defense needs to play their best game yet this year. A +2 turnover rate would go a long way towards victory tonight. I think they need to hold Philthy to 24 points or less for us to win.
3) Special teams need to step up to the plate tonight. We are going to need a couple of momentum changers from them.
Can't speak for anyone else, but I think these Thursday night games should be abolished, outside of the Thanksgiving day games.
I feel the same way ctchiefsfan does about being apprehensive for this game. I'm really hoping the Chiefs Offense will turn in its best performance of the regular season, because I really believe they are going to need it.
The short week should hurt the Eagles defense which was on the field for 40 minutes on Sunday.
A couple clock eating scoring drives in the first half are crucial if we are to hang with them.

we should have a good pass rush
and plenty a sauce to
