The road to the Super Bowl may have to be cleared with a snow plow.The Kansas City Chiefs will open their postseason run against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday Chad Henne Jersey , and the game time weather forecast at Arrowhead Stadium has changed again.Winter storm Gia — yep, it has a name — is now projected in some forecasts to drop more snow on Kansas City than we first thought.Accumulations by kickoff could be as high as eight inches, and snow could continue through the early part of the game.Here’s what the National Weather Service is saying on Friday morning:Here’s another take — this one from KSHB-TV:Here’s another:None of this is good news for the fans planning to attend the game — but who doesn’t like a game in real football weather?As for the effect on the game itself... who can say?The conventional wisdom is that adverse weather tends to cause teams to run the ball more, but there are plenty of examples of games that had lots of passing yards in snowy weather — perhaps because teams figure the other side won’t expect it.For his part, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had a pretty philosophical answer when asked about the weather forecast on Thursday. “I am aware of it,” he said. “I can’t do anything about it. Whatever happens, happens. Both teams are playing in it and we will roll.”On Wednesday Kendall Fuller Jersey , special teams coordinator Dave Toub — who has to worry about the kicking game — was asked if the incoming weather would affect his unit. “It really does. It affects us probably more so than anybody,” Toub said. “We’ve talked about it. It’s not like we can manufacture snow, but we practice wet ball drills and stuff like that. The good thing is that we’ve got all week outside. That’s going to help us -- especially with the wind.”Toub was asked if they’d be shoveling snow.“It won’t be on us to do it. They’ll be on top of it.I would [be out there shoveling snow and] if we need it, I’d clear the spot. But [the officials] don’t allow that. They’ll be on top of it. Even when it’s raining, it’s amazing. They do such a good job. They have a dry ball at the snap every time.”Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said it wouldn’t affect the team’s focus one bit.“It’s go time. It’s playoff time,” Bieniemy said with great emphasis. “I will say this: these guys have been training their entire lives to be placed in this situation. Regardless... it could be 89 degrees and sunny with high humidity. Or it could be 25 degrees with a 30-below wind chill. It does not matter. You only get a certain amount of opportunities in this profession to go out and prove who you are and what you’re about. So regardless of weather conditions... we don’t care. We’ll go out and play. I know these guys. They’re excited about the opportunity. They’re excited about being in this situation. At kickoff time, we’ll let it all go.”What’s the over/under on a snow angel from KC Wolf? This is part three of a three-part weekly film analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes. Part one: something good and something bad here Eric Murray Jersey , part two: something smart and something special here.I was saddened to learn that Chiefs’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins was laboring with a foot injury and is d**-to-d** and the Cardinals game is in question. He’s really starting to come into his own in Kansas City. So much so that I had to write about Mahomes’ developing chemistry with him. Something improvedWe talked yesterday about the amount of trust built up between Mahomes and Travis Kelce being critical to this team’s success. There’s a budding relationship developing between Mahomes and the fourth player in the pecking order that should scare the 31 other teams in the National Football League.Play one: A well-timed step up into the pocket, run to space and throw into the middle of the field that finds Watkins in a soft spot in the zone. Play two (two views of play): Mahomes drives a great, accurate ball off of play action to Watkins on a deep curl. Mahomes worked through his progression to find him working back to the ball. Great job by Watkins to make the first guy miss and second guy miss initially.Play three: Mahomes throws a hitch on time to Watkins with a corner playing a bail technique in Cover 3.Play four: Mahomes hits Watkins on a wheel route down the sideline against Cover 3. Great placement.The chemistry is really growing between these two young players. Watkins was lined up in a bunch, in a reduced split, as an X receiver and inside, ran a variety of routes and Mahomes connected with him left and right short and intermediate.The Mahomes-to-Watkins connection was at a disadvantage compared to more developed comfort levels of Kelce and Hill both in the system and the young quarterback. We’re starting to see Watkins come along. A few interesting stats among wide receivers I checked on:From Weeks 7-9, Watkins was third in the NFL in receiving yards and 15th in receiving yards per game.From Weeks 5-9 Terrance Smith Jersey , Watkins was 12th in the NFL in receiving yards and 20th in receiving yards per game.The preseason and early slate weren’t overwhelming (although there were plenty of glimpses of what was coming), but now we’re starting to see a jump in productivity between Mahomes and the receiver from Clemson. Hopefully, his recent foot issue doesn’t get too in the way of the continued cultivation of yet another weapon in the Chiefs’ offense.Needs improvementEvery unnecessary hit on Mahomes is a bad one.The Chiefs have the runaway favorite for the NFL MVP. He is the reason that the Super Bowl is attainable and is further cementing his place as an elite quarterback week over week. On this play, Mahomes leaves the pocket early (also needs improvement) and rolls right to try and create in the red zone. He doesn’t have any real options and holds the ball all the way to the sidelines. That’s where a late(ish) hit pushes him into the area of the chains, referee, cameraman.This chance for something fluky to happen is so easily avoidable. I love that Mahomes tries to give every play a chance, but this was clearly a time to throw the ball away and avoid additional contact. He’s the franchise now Xavier Williams Jersey , and this is an opportunity to eat the play and minimize the risk of injury. It may seem unimportant, but it is. Hits add up, and flukes happen in that area of the sidelines.Miss this week’s episode of the AP Laboratory? We talked more Mahomes, Travis Kelce and more.
