Weather could be wild card for Chiefs on Sunday

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs are back at home this weekend to take on Jacksonville, and while the game plan may be in place, here's one thing that you can't account for: the weather.

Rain is expected this Sunday, but the Chiefs special teams unit feels prepared for just about anything mother nature may throw their way.

Dealing with those elements start in training camp.

"We know that there is a strong possibility for rain," said Special Teams Coordinator Dave Toub. "We've been talking about it. We have a thing we call the "wet ball" drill. We wet the ball down and snap it."

This unit is also prepared if they have to make some emergency changes during the game as well.

"We've prepared for everything. I'm 14 years in and Dave is like 'Hey, you're kicking field goals today,'" Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt says. "In training camp you can either say 'I don't know if I want to do that' or 'Hey this would be good.'

"What if something happens to our kicker? I think what he's saying is if we have a chance to experience this at any point earlier in the year, let's work on it in training camp. Get out there into the elements."

The Chiefs look like they are ready for any curve balls that may be thrown their way.
