I’m on a one week win streak with my predictions.Scary accurate (kind of).Looking to make a big push, so need a big
With the Thursday game in the rear-view, we now face down
the barrel of a 4 week stretch with 3 prime-time games which kind of
stinks.I prefer some normalcy in my football
season, but I can’t blame them for showcasing this game.Pats vs. Chiefs is a huge draw with serious playoff
implications.If the Jaguars was a
measuring stick type game…this is….another type of measuring stick game.
Chiefs are a weird one for me.They always seem like they are a second tier
team that starts hot and maybe limps into the playoffs for a one and done.They are a good team, but just not able to
get over the hump to where I lose sleep over them.I thought things were starting to change
after they whooped us in the season opener last year….but then they basically
turned into a pumpkin down the stretch.
Don’t look now, but they are 5-0 and already looking like
they are running away with the AFC.Not
to get ahead of myself, but I don’t want to play in Arrowhead in a playoff
game.That is one of those places the
Pats have a real tough time. (Top three tough places to play for Pats: Denver,
On offense, Patrick Mahomes is lighting the world on
fire.Everyone is saying he is the
bomb.He is obviously putting up
numbers, but I’m not so quick to jump on the bandwagon.Let’s see him do it for 16 games first.Everyone wanted to crown RG3 and Kaepernick
in their rookie seasons, and neither panned out.Once teams get some tape on a young QB, they
can make life tough on him.Otherwise
Tyreke Hill is a threat to break it on any play and Travis Kelce is one of the
top guys in the business.If not taken
care of, he gives the Pats a ton of trouble.Kareem Hunt is doing the damn thing too, so its no surprise that offense
has put up some points.
The Chiefs defense kinda stinks though right?.Their pass defense is particularly
stinky.I think this one has the makings
of a shoot-out.
Prediction:Patriots score on first possession – I think this
is going to be a shootout and this is a tough prediction.However, I don’t make easy ones.Pats are gonna come right out the shoot and
want to make a statement and I think they do just that.
Prediction:Kelce gets shut down – After Eric Ebron
looked like a Hall of Famer, I think the Pats choose to not let Kelce beat
them.He will get jammed and doubled a
lot.Let’s say under 76 yards and no
tuddy for me to be right.I think the
Pats would take that all day.
Prediction:Both Quarterbacks go over 300 yards – Like I
said, I think this will get pretty wild.
Prediction:Pats Win 38-30– I like that the Pats are home
and most really big games they show up for.I think they take Kelce out of the game and force the Chiefs to beat
them elsewhere.Tom Brady moves the ball
all day long on a bad pass defense, and the AFC gets way more interesting.
