And a win Sunday over the Seattle Seahawks – last years Super Bowl Champs – would make them something much more, a Super Bowl Contender. That might be wishful thinking, but hey, if the Royals can do it…
If the Chiefs can get to 7-3 their games with Denver and the Chargers will be for the division title. If not they will battle for the wild card.
Can the Chiefs stop Seattle’s big running game and stop QB Russell Wilson?
I think Wilson is over rated.
The Chiefs are balanced, but not having a big time wide receiver or downfield passing game may start catching up them. It’s just a question of if the Chiefs’ defense is really as good as it looks and can Alex Smith continue to work off short throws to the tight ends, Dwayne Bowe and the backs. I think it will be very close. I hope our guys win. But I wouldn’t bet the ranch on it either way.
As for college, well that nice little team K-State looks to be out of the Big 12 title race. They’ll still land a decent bowl, as will Missouri who still could still slip into a division playoff with the nation’s probable top team at season’s end. Kansas is better but will get rolled by TCU, the likely Big 12 champ.
Now on to the picks…
Mississippi State +16 over Alabama tease with TCU -22 over KU
Marshall – 21 over Rice
DENVER -3 OVER ST. LOUIS TEASE WITH SAN DIEGO -4 OVER RAIDERS
DETROIT +7 over ARIZONA tease with DENVER -3 OVER ST. LOUIS
