And the Chiefs have had more positive national media attention this week than they’ve had in nearly a decade.
Now let’s look at their two wins honestly.
The Chiefs dominated the Jacksonville Jaguars at Jacksonville two weeks ago. However, the Jags clearly are a team that might go 0 and 16. Still, it was a solid win on the road. More impressive, KC edged out the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at Arrowhead. And frankly, that game could have gone either way.
S0 while we are all happy KC won, it was far from a dominant victory.
Now the Chiefs are on the road with a short week of practice and a banged up tight end and a wounded running back in Jamaal Charles. In short, the Chiefs offense is very much in question. The Eagles on the other hand, have an explosive offense led by the aging Mike Vick who is also known to be erratic and injury prone.
And the Philly defense is horrible. It will come down to the KC defense being for real or over-rated.
I say this one’s a coin flip.
Advantage goes to the Eagles since they’re at home with a complicated offense that the Chiefs must find a way to stop. Chiefs QB Alex Smith has to step up a notch or two in both running and passing because we will need more offense than we’ve seen in the first two games. My advice is to tease this game, get the Chiefs +9 and Clemson -8 over Carolina State.
Florida (-10) over Tennessee on a tease with Clemson (-8) over NC State.
Baylor (-27) over Monroe on a tease with Alabama (-32) over Colorado State.
Texas A&M (-28) over SMU
Chicago Bears (-2 ½ ) over Pittsburgh
New England (-1) over Tampa Bay on a tease with Minnesota (- ½ ) over Cleveland
Seattle Seahawks (-13) over Jacksonville on a tease with Denver (-9) over Oakland.
