We all know the Chiefs face the world champion New England Patriots Thursday…
It’s one of six prime time games KC has this year. Talk about KC getting media respect, oops here it comes…!!!!
The Chiefs could be very average this season.
The Pats are a nine point favorite with G.O.A.T. quarterback Tom Brady leading the way.
Yes, I know Julian Edleman is out but Brady has plenty of other weapons like BIG ROB GRONKOWSKI to throw to.
Yes I know in 2014 KC beat New England at Arrowhead and Brady went on to win the Super Bowl – a game KC hasn’t been in half a century and counting.
What would I do you ask?
I’d start Pat Mahomes NOW….why the F NOT.
We’re saving him for what?
We’ve seen Alex Gordon – I mean Smith – in action for years. And he will no doubt lead us to a couple field goals early and maybe ONE TD. But that’s probably it.
Any other points the Chiefs score will likely not be because of Smith. It will be a big play on defense or special teams.
Can KC hang with the Pats?
If you tease your bet do you go KC plus 15? Remember you get six points either way or do you go Pats -3….tough call…
O.K. I know Chiefs coach Andy Reid will not face Alex Gordon/Smith and say, “Sorry son, but Pat……no way. So its Alex, Kelce,Hill and Hunt on offense….no Mahomes YET.
Tough call on a pick here, but you have to like the hometown Pats and Brady…..to win but it may be close…like Pats 24 Chiefs16.
Remember we have no clue what our defense will look like Justin, Dee Ford, Derek Johnson saw little to no pre season action and all three are question marks at linebacker..so is Eric Berry at safety…yikes.
Wish I had posted my college picks last week, I got lucky with the big teams (seven) winning or covering or both…but no post, so doesn’t count..here is this week
NEW ENGLAND -3 IN A TEASE OVER KC WITH ATLANTA -1 IN A TEASE OVER THE BEARS/CHICAGO
HOUSTON +1 OVER JAGS IN A TEASE WITH OAKLAND +8 OVER TENN.
CLEMSON +1 over AUBURN in a tease with ALABAMA -37 OVER FRESNO
I might add some more closer to weekend…
Thats it for now..let’s hope the Chiefs are good this year…we’ll see!
