Lions vs Bears

Bears vs Lions : The first of two meetings in 11 days between the Lions and Bears will be played at Soldier Field Sunday, followed by a Thanksgiving Day rematch.

The Lions have been a model of inconsistency all year, defeating the Patriots but losing to the Jets and 49ers. They’ve outscored their first eight opponents 52-20 in the first quarter but been outscored 190-128 in the final three quarters, including 80-26 in the third quarter.

The Bears have won back-to-back games, but they were against the Jets and Bills, who are a combined 5-13. The defense has capitalized on the inferior opponents, allowing just 19 points and 471 yards combined. The 41-9 victory in Week Nine was misleading, as the offense had just 190 total yards but benefited from short fields and two defensive touchdowns. But they lead the NFC North at 5-3.

The Lions have won nine of the last 10 meetings, though six of the last eight Detroit victories have been by six points or less.

The Bears are No. 7 in rushing yards, but that statistic gives a false impression of their ground game. QB Mitch Trubisky averages 8.0 yards per carry, and his 302 rushing yards are second among NFL quarterbacks to only Cam Newton. Jordan Howard rushed for two touchdowns last week but averaged just 3.4 yards on 14 carries and is at 3.5 for the season. Tarik Cohen provides a more dynamic complement, but he had his least productive game of the season vs. the Bills, gaining 5 yards on six carries.

The Lions are 30th in rushing yards allowed and 31st in average gain allowed per running play (5.14 yards) and have been gashed on runs of longer than 50 yards in four different games. They’ve permitted at least 128 rushing yards in each of their five losses. They added massive NT Damon “Snacks” Harrison shortly before the trade deadline, which should help shore up the middle vs. the run.

QB Mitch Trubisky had a stretch of three plus 100.0 passer ratings in four games before scuffling against the Bills with a 76.0 outing that was artificially inflated by a 2-yard, garbage-time TD pass to TE Trey Burton. The TD was Burton’s team-best fifth and equaled his career mark he set last year in Philly. WR Allen Robinson (groin) has missed the last two games but could return this week. In his absence, rookie Anthony Miller has stepped up with eight catches for 96 yards the past two weeks. WR Taylor Gabriel leads the Bears with 37 catches and 426 yards.

Lions DE Ziggy Ansah returned after a six-game hiatus following a shoulder injury and had one sack last week but played just a dozen snaps. Even without his pass-rush presence, the Lions are No. 1 in the NFL in sack percentage and No. 4 in passing yards allowed but only 26th in average gain allowed per pass. Without Ansah, OLB Devon Kennard and Romeo Okwara, Ansah’s replacement, have picked up the sack slack with five apiece. CB Darius “Big Play” Slay, who has two interceptions, will miss his first game of the season with a knee injury.

After several years as the NFL’s worst running team, the Lions have gotten a big boost from second-round rookie Kerryon Johnson, who has gotten off to a strong start. He’s averaging 5.7 yards per carry despite being held to just 3.1 per try last week. LeGarrette Blount handles the short-yardage and goal-line situations.

Last week Bills QB Nathan Peterman scored the first rushing TD against the Bears in 2018. Aside from a hiccup in the Week 6 loss to the Dolphins, the Bears have mostly shut down the run game, allowing less than 75 yards five times and 4.0 yards per rush or less seven times. DE Akiem Hicks and NT Eddie Goldman are winning at the line of scrimmage, and ILBs Roquan Smith and Danny Trevathan (25 combined tackles last week) are cleaning up.

Prior to getting dropped 10 times last week, QB Matthew Stafford had been sacked just 13 times in the first seven games. He dropped back 51 times last week but got off just 36 passes, running for his life five times when he wasn’t sacked. Stafford was hit 17 times in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings, but prior to that had been among the least pressured QBs in the league, and he still has a 96.5 passer rating. In a puzzling move, they traded away leading receiver Golden Tate (44-517-3) to the Eagles. But the cupboard is hardly bare, with Marvin Jones (32-453-5) and big, deep threat Kenny Golladay (33-523-15.3-3). TJ Jones could step into the void created by Tate’s departure.

The Bears dominated Jets rookie Sam Darnold and the Bills’ Nathan Peterman the past two weeks, but they were victimized the two previous weeks by the Dolphins’ Brock Osweiler and New England’s Tom Brady. The Bears are No. 2 in the league in interception percentage, CB Kyle Fuller is tied for the NFL lead with four picks and 10 different players have at least one interception. The pass rush has fallen off since OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) was injured early in Week Six, but they’re still eighth in sack percentage, and Mack could be back this week.

The Lions fired ST coordinator Joe Marciano Monday after repeated struggles in kick coverage, especially punts, where they have allowed an average of 20.6 yards, nearly eight yards more than the next-worst team. Their special teams also drew three penalties on Sunday, giving them 14 for the season. Jamal Agnew, who led the league in punt-return average last year and took two to the house, is likely to miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury he suffered a month ago.

Cohen is fifth in the NFL with a 12.4-yard punt-return average, and he had a 36-yarder last week.

Lions coach Matt Patricia is no slouch — or at least he doesn’t care for the slouching of others, as he pointed out last week during a news conference. But the Lions’ enormous discrepancy in third-quarter scoring is an indication that his halftime adjustments aren’t working.

Matt Nagy’s offense might have taken a step back last week, but his team still won by 32 points and is on pace for its first playoff berth since 2010.

Edge: Bears.

The Bears’ only loss in four home games is to the Patriots. The Lions have lost three of four on the road. If the Bears get Mack and Robinson back, it would give each side of the ball a big boost. Letting Tate go caught his former teammates by surprise and seemed to indicate the Lions may not be all-in this year, an odd move, since they were only a game out of first place in the NFC North.

Saints vs Bengals

Bengals  vs Saints  : The Saints and Bengals head into Week 10 looking to solidify their playoff positions. New Orleans is coming off a big win as they handed the Rams their first loss of the season and are perched atop the NFC South. Cincinnati is coming off their bye week and are second in the AFC North.

Saints vs Bengals Live

Drew Brees is rolling this season and leads the NFL in completion percentage (76.3) and passer rating (120.6). In Week 9 he threw for 346 yards with four touchdowns – his 22nd career game with four-or-more touchdowns and zero interceptions.

With the game the game tied at 35, Brees set up a 54-yard field goal by Wil Lutz to give New Orleans a three-point lead, and then put the game out of reach with a 75-yard touchdown to Michael Thomas. Including that 75-yard play, Thomas had 211 receiving yards which set a new Saints record.

The Bengals may have won their last game, but hopefully they used their bye week to go over their defensive strategies. While they won 37-34 against Tampa Bay, they allowed a whopping 576 yards to the Bucs – which is the highest total in team history.

The good news for Cincinnati is they are 3-1 at home this season. The bad news, they’ll be most likely without top receiver A.J. Green who has a toe injury. Cincinnati is hoping their five young receivers John Ross, Josh Malone, Cody Core, Alex Erickson and Auden Tate – who have 19 receptions for 165 yards and two touchdowns, by Ross – can get the job done along with veteran Tyler Boyd.

Falcons vs Browns

Falcons vs Browns : Since they last faced a team from the AFC North on the road, the Atlanta Falcons have made considerable strides in reviving their season.

Falcons vs Browns Live

They have an excellent opportunity to build on their most impressive win of the season against one of the most dysfunctional teams in the league. There is no telling how Cleveland is operating at the moment. After firing Hue Jackson and Todd Haley, the front office’s intentions were clear in wanting to eradicate every ounce of turmoil within their coaching staff. Choosing Gregg Williams to be their interim head coach guarantees that chaos will remain for another two months. While Cleveland is waiting to see who will be its next head coach in January, Atlanta is trending in the right direction to play football in January.

The biggest surprise coming out of the Falcons’ best performance of the season was how they shut down Washington’s ferocious defensive line. Matt Ryan was only sacked twice and hit four times on 40 drop backs. It was by far the offensive line’s most impressive showing of the season. They remained solidified in stopping the likes of Ryan Kerrigan and Jonathan Allen. When the Redskins decided to get creative with their blitzes, the offense received a huge contribution from Tevin Coleman, who handled several blitz pickups extremely well.

A dominant performance like that should be a major confidence booster going into another difficult matchup. For all the chaos in Cleveland, the front office is building something special up front. Myles Garrett is tied for the third in the NFL with nine sacks. After all the pre-draft hype, the highly decorated edge rusher has been as good as advertised. Larry Ogunjobi is developing into one of the better nose tackles in the league. Right tackles will face serious consequences if they sleep on Emmanuel Ogbah’s speed off the edge. They don’t have the quality of depth that Washington has, but they’re equally as dangerous with Garrett leading the charge.

The lack of depth could eventually begin to hurt them. Rotoworld’s Evan Silva recently highlighted Cleveland’s dependence of Garrett and Ogunjobi. In unsurprising fashion, the coaching staff is overusing them. Garrett has played 110 more snaps than any other defensive end in the league, while Ogunjobi has played 121 more snaps than any other defensive tackle in the league. Between overly relying on both star players and still calling outdated preposterous blitzes in 2018, Williams isn’t doing his defense any favors. That could bode well for Steve Sarkisian, who knows how to wear down aggressive defenses. Look no further than what he did to the Rams’ talented front four in the playoffs. It wouldn’t be surprising to see a repeat performance.

Bruce Irvin provides a much-needed jolt to an anemic pass rush
After being linked with a rumored trade to the Falcons in 2015, Irvin is finally where he always wanted to be. The Atlanta-born edge rusher signed with his favorite childhood team three days ago. By turning down New England and Pittsburgh, his desire to play for his home city and former defensive coordinator couldn’t be more evident. It also shows that the Falcons are ready to compete for a playoff spot.

Irvin turned 31 years old last week. As great as the feeling is to play in your hometown coached by someone you appreciate, a veteran pass rusher like Irvin doesn’t have time to waste. He clearly believes the Falcons are ready to make serious moves.

It will be fascinating to see how Irvin is utilized in Quinn’s defense. Following two months of coping with Jon Gruden’s wasteland, you’d expect the former first-round pick to be rejuvenated. Playing on a defense filled with speed and talent will present better opportunities to rush the passer. The possibility of using Irvin with Vic Beasley, Takkarist McKinley, and Grady Jarrett must be very enticing for the coaching staff. To establish their own version of the NASCAR package could give offensive lines significant problems. Lining up Irvin alongside McKinley creates an ultra-explosive, violent pairing capable of wrecking offenses.

Most successful defensive lines thrive off their flexibility in using different alignments to generate pressure. Signing Irvin gives them more opportunities to be creative on passing downs. Per ESPN’s NFL Matchup, the Falcons have the fourth-lowest pressure rate in the league. Irvin isn’t a game-changing player, but his impressive get off and power off the edge will give a defense in dire need of another pass rusher more productivity.

As Irvin prepares to make his debut, questions about Beasley’s outlook will continue to increase. Ian Rapoport reported last Sunday that multiple teams were interested in Beasley. Although the front office ultimately rejected those offers, it does speak volumes about where Beasley stands within the organization. The once rapidly rising star’s development has badly stagnated over the past year. From single-handedly wrecking games to being crowned as the sack king, everyone expected Beasley to progress following his absurd 2016 season. That hasn’t transpired in the slightest.

The former first-round pick simply isn’t evolving as a pass rusher. There aren’t many legitimate moves in his arsenal. If Beasley can’t win within the first half-second of his rush, opposing tackles will stone wall him with their superior strength advantage. Beasley’s poor hand usage and inability to utilize a spin move leaves him hopeless at times coming off the edge. Despite showing some promise over the past few games, a fourth-year player with high expectations placed on him needs to start producing big-time moments instead of showing mere glimpses of hope.

A favorable matchup against Cleveland’s group of overmatched tackles could be what he needs to start making a genuine impact. They haven’t decided on who will start at left tackle between Desmond Harrison and Greg Robinson. Both tackles are known for their issues against speed rushers. Chris Hubbard isn’t much better on the right side either. There is some concern about how Beasley, Irvin, and McKinley will be utilized. ESPN’s Vaughn McClure broke down their recent usage in explaining why the coaching staff feels confident about getting the most out of each player. Slightly cutting down Beasley’s snaps may be what he needs to stay fresh to exploit tiring tackles in the second half of games.

One of the biggest factors behind the defense’s recent success consists of finishing plays in the open field. After being one of the worst tackling teams in the league to start the season, they’ve made great strides in all phases of tackling. Not allowing Saquon Barkley to get into the open field disrupted the Giants’ game plan. Although they were aided by the offense’s roaring start last week, there was still plenty to be encouraged about by them shutting down Adrian Peterson. Taking out two consecutive running games featuring two exceptional running backs deserves to be praised.

The challenges aren’t stopping anytime soon. Similar to Washington, Cleveland has one of the more unique running back tandems in the league. Unlike Washington, both of them are expected to play. Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson are two of the few bright spots in Cleveland’s erratic offense.

Juventus vs AC Milan

AC Milan needed a stoppage-time Alessio Romagnoli goal to defeat Udinese 1-0 last weekend. The result saw the Rossoneri push up into fourth place in the standings, whilst a 1-1 draw with Real Betis in the Europa League keeps Rino Gattuso’s side in the hunt to qualify from Group F. Now Juve come to town, riding a wave of form in the league, the question is how AC Milan can silence the attacking of Cristiano Ronaldo and company.

One AC Milan player who won’t be short of motivation is Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentinian striker was the fall guy for Ronaldo’s blockbuster move in the summer and secured a loan move to Milan after CR7 arrived in Turin. Higuain is able to play against his parent club and should shake off a back injury in time to play on Sunday evening.

In other team news, Gattuso is facing a mini injury crisis heading into the game. Giacomo Bonaventura, Mattia Caldara and Lucas Biglia are all out injured while Mateo Musacchio and Hakan Calhanoglu limped off against Betis midweek. Expect several changes in the side.

AC Milan Predicted Team

Reina, Romagnoli, Zapata, Rodriguez, Laxalt, Bakayoko, Kessie, Suso, Borini, Higuain, Cutrone

As for Juventus they suffered a rare home defeat midweek in the Champions League, as Manchester United came away with a 2-1 victory. Two goals in the final three minutes sealed all three points for Jose Mourinho, who revelled in the win in typically brash fashion.

Now the focus for Max Allegri’s side will be Milan, and the chance to maintain their undefeated streak in the league. Recent form for Juventus against AC Milan has been good, with the Bianconeri winning the last five games against Milan in all competitions. That also includes the Copa Italia final last year.

In team news, Allegri could hand a start to Mario Manzukic who came on in stoppage time against Man United. Emre Can is a long-term injury concern whilst Douglas Costa picked up a knock and could miss the game.

Juventus Predicted Team

Szczesny, Sandro, Bonucci, Chiellini, Cancelo, Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi, Dybala, Mandzukic, Ronaldo

F1 2018 live stream: Brazilian Grand Prix time, TV schedule, and how to watch online

Brazilian Grand Prix 2018 Live

Though Lewis Hamilton has already secured the Drivers’ Championship, the Constructors’ Championship is still up for grabs going into the penultimate race of the 2018 season: the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix from Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo. The race is set for Sunday at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN2 (live streaming via WatchESPN, ESPN App, F1 TV Pro).

Hamilton will also start on pole for Sunday’s race, after a record-setting qualifying lap time of 1:07.281. He was involved in some drama, along with his primary rival this season, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari. Hamilton had an incident in which he forced Sergiy Sirotkin off the track while trying to move out of the way after Sirotkin was already doing so. Both drivers lost a lot of time at that point.

“And for Lewis it was a misunderstanding, he tried to get out of the way whilst thinking that somebody was on a quick lap and wasn’t flagged to him,” Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said. “It could have ended up in an accident but it didn’t. So for me, a non-issue.”

Vettel impatiently drove his car onto and then off of the scales during the second qualifying session, which is against protocol and also damaged the scale in the process. The rain was starting to pick up at the time and it’s understandable that Vettel would be annoyed at being called in for a weigh-in.

“They shouldn’t call us when the conditions are like that, I think it’s unfair if somebody gets called in,” Vettel said. “I wanted them to hurry up.”

Both drivers avoided grid penalties for the incidents, though Vettel was reprimanded and issued a fine. Vettel will start second on the grid behind Hamilton.

Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes and Kimi Raikkone of Ferrari occupy the second row, in that order. Max Verstappen of Red Bull starts fifth, while Daniel Ricciardo, his teammate, will start 11th after a five-place grid penalty for engine changes. After Verstappen is Marcus Ericsson of Sauber, out-qualifying his teammate, Charles Leclerc, which has been a rarity this season.

Romain Grosjean of Haas, Pierre Gasly of Toro Rosso and Kevin Magnussen of Haas round out the remainder of the Top 10.

Below is all you need to know to watch the action, and below that is the full starting grid from Sunday.

Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Live

Match Preview

The second to last match of the 2018-19

The last time Celta and Real met was back in January of this year. It was a 2-2 draw in Galicia, where Gareth Bale would be the lone scorer with a brace. Celta Vigo are currently 12th in the league table with 46 points.

The last match of the season at the Bernabéu will be one Real will want to win, or at least put a better effort forth than they did against Sevilla. Real travels to Estadio de la Cerámica next weekend to face Villarreal and then it’s off to Kyiv to take on Liverpool in the Champions League Final.


Real are still without Dani Carvajal and Cristiano Ronaldo. Carvajal should be ready for the Final in Kyiv, though he most likely won’t see anymore La Liga action. Ronaldo will miss this match, but may return by the Villarreal match next weekend. Isco has been training with the team, but it is still uncertain if he will feature against Celta Vigo. All three should be match fit for Liverpool at the end of the month.

No suspensions for Real against Celta with Gareth Bale returning from suspension.

Real Madrid

Navas; Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Asensio, Mayoral

Once again like the match against Sevilla, these lineups could look vastly different than what’s predicted here. Theo and Vallejo struggled against Sevilla and so they’ll likely both be sitting. Zidane could choose to rest Ramos and instead start Hakimi at right back. Casilla also did not look very good against Sevilla, so Navas will likely return in goal.

Modric and Kroos both sat against Sevilla, so they could return as starters in favor of Kovacic and Ceballos. I don’t think Llorente will get a start, but you never know what Zidane is thinking.

Celta Vigo

Sergio; Mallo, Sergi Gómez, Cabral, Jonny; Lobotka, Jozabed, Wass, Méndez, Maxi Gómez, Iago Aspas

Patriots vs Titans Live

After two weeks on the road, Tennessee is heading back home. They will square off against New England at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tennessee aren’t expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn’t stop them last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.

Tennessee have had to suffer through a three-game losing streak, but that streak is no more. They walked away with a 28-14 victory over Dallas. Marcus Mariota was the offensive standout of the match for Tennessee, as he passed for 240 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Meanwhile, New England might be getting used to good results now that the team has six wins in a row. They were able to grind out a solid win over Green Bay last-week game, winning 31-17.

Their wins bumped Tennessee to 4-4 and New England to 7-2. The Tennessee defense got after the quarterback against Dallas to the tune of five sacks, so New England’s offensive line better have put in some good practice this past week in preparation for the matchup.

The Bills, coming off a loss to the Chicago Bears, are led by quarterback Nathan Peterman and wide receiver Zay Jones.

Jets vs Bills Live

East Rutherford, N.J. — Veteran journeyman quarterback Matt Barkley will start for the Buffalo Bills (2-7) Sunday against the New York Jets (3-6).

The Bills were hoping to have rookie quarterback Josh Allen back from an elbow injury but he was declared out Sunday. Instead of going with Nathan Peterman again, Buffalo coach Sean McDermott decided to plug Barkley in at QB after ust two weeks on the team.

The Jets turn to veteran quarterback Josh McCown with their rookie quarterback Sam Darnold nursing a foot injury. McCown will face the Bills’ second-ranked defense that’s holding teams to 212 passing yards per game this season.

After two weeks on the road, the Jets is heading back home. They will square off against Buffalo at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. The Jets have seen their point totals decreasing over the past three games, a vulnerability Buffalo are surely hoping to exploit.

Things haven’t been easy for the Jets, and their matchup last Sunday only extended their streak of losses to three. They came up short against Miami, falling 6-13.

Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for Buffalo, and boy were they were right. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 9-41 walloping at Chicago’s hands. Buffalo were in a tough position by the half, with the score sitting at 0-28.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Both of these teams made a habit out of coughing up the ball last game, so whoever can hold on the rock might walk away a winner.

Chiefs vs Cardinals

Chiefs vs Cardinals: Last week, we saw the Arrowhead Pride contributors go 10-2 with their picks. Two of the contributors picks the Browns to win last week — looks like it may take some time for all Chiefsfans to get over the scars of the past. I know I’m still recovering myself.

Chiefs vs Cardinals Live

My Week 10 Prediction is just an ”orange justice” tribute to the Fortnite & NFL partnership beginning tomorrow with the release of uniform skins.

1. Josh Rosen should be a “Bush Camper” while in pass protection, meaning the Cardinals’ O-line might provide a little camouflage but no real protection from the Chiefs’ D-line.

Chiefs vs Cardinals Livestream Free

2. Any Cardinals wide receivers should be immediately “knock(ed)” if they dare to complete any passes longer than five yards.

3. Be alert for Kareem Hunt “launch(ing)” himself into the end zone.

4. Yes, All the Chiefs players are ready to share “mats.” We have more than enough material to keep building more room for fans to get on the wagon.

5. As a team, the Cardinals are definitely “one-shot.” Make sure the Chiefs start fast and don’t give them any hope of victory.

6. We know the Cardinals are a team full of “storm troopers.” Once the game kicks off, there will be where for their defenders to hide.

7. When Chris Jones asks, “Do we have any Heals?” by signaling the Kingdom to make some noise. The Sea of Red response is the best way to ensure a “Victory Royale.”

The Cards are coming to town. Clearly, a rebuilding team trying to find its own identity. While David Johnson is a talented running back, they just don’t have the horses to compete with the Chiefs. This is essentially a warmup game for the big showdown—kind of like the midday meal you eat before Thanksgiving. A real stretch it out and get ready kind of game. I’ve been saying it for weeks, but it’s gotta happen sooner or later right?

The Cardinals have a decent defense, but the Chiefs offense has already rolled over a bushel basket full of those. The Cardinals have a new offensive coordinator in Byron Leftwich, who managed to get his team’s offensive output above 300 yards for the first time all season two weeks ago in a victory against the 49ers. It’s fair to wonder that with a bye week, Leftwich can do some things to clean up the mess left by former OC Mike McCoy — and maybe cook up a solid plan to beat Bob Sutton’s defense — but it’s hard to imagine the Chiefs losing a game like this at home. There’s enough uncertainty about Leftwich that the Cardinals might make it closer than we’d expect against a 2-6 opponent, but the Chiefs should handle this one easily.

This is the more “trap” like trap game for the Chiefs, given the extra attention to the Browns with the coaching carousel and the looming Mexico City Showdown with the Rams. The Chiefs very well may not come out with a ton of juice early for a game against an inferior opponent playing Arrowhead but the remaining questions is, does that matter?

When Arizona has the ball their offensive line play has been absolutely horrendous this year, if there was ever a get-right game for the Chiefs run defense this is it. The Cardinals will mostly, unless Byron Leftwhich is coming up with new stuff post-Bye, continue smashing David Johnsoninto the A and B gaps in which their OL generates no movement. In the passing game their interior OL is just as porous as their offensive tackles constantly allowing a ton of pressure to young Josh Rosen. Rosen has made some beautiful throws this year but really struggles when pressured and moved off his spot which is something Ford, Jones, and the rest of the front should be able to do. The WR group for the Cardinals has also been subpar struggling to separate and haul in basses all year.

When the Chiefs have the ball, it’s pretty simple that you need to stop Chandler Jones and you can have your way with the Cardinals defense. Their linebackers, in particular, have been a real issue easily drawn out of place and flowing before they need to be. Combine that with a lot of spot-zone coverage and it should be a situation that Mahomes can continue his dominance vs zone. The Cardinals have athletes to get sideline to sideline vs the run BUT they aren’t good at quickly flowing outside and instead look to shoot gaps, especially vs a zone blocking scheme. This could lead to large chunk runs for Hunt outside the tackles, again.

I don’t forsee the Chiefs coming out with 110 percent effort in this game, but it really won’t matter as at some point pure talent takes over. A relatively ho-hum performance that showcases the Chiefs as a better team but the Cardinals are able to make a few schematic changes that surprise the not completely focused Chiefs.

This is a week where the Chiefs defense can work to improve. Justin Houston should return and the Chiefs defense will be facing one of the worst offenses in the NFL. It is a wasted opportunity for the Chiefs defense if they do not sack, intercept, and just generally give this weak Cardinals offense a horrible time on Sunday.

This is uncharted territory for the Chiefs. 1) they are favored by more than 2 TDs. 2) they finally have the franchise QB that makes a letdown less likely. It’s clearly the type of trap game that would be a problem for previous Chiefs teams. It feels like the KC defense is improving, so they certainly have the opportunity to dominate with pass rush against the Cards. The league’s best offense and special teams will continue to be the story, though. Watch for Tyreek Hill to have another big week, it’s his turn.

The Cardinals have more holes than they do players to this point. They’re not particularly good in the trenches, they’re still trying to find an identity on offense, and their defense got 45 points hung on them by Denver *at home.* This game will be over at the half, and we’ll be watching Chad Henne and Spencer Ware move the ball on the ground in the third quarter.

The Chiefs are going to win and Patrick Mahomes is going to break Len Dawson’s single-season TD pass record in week 10. Amazing. I don’t expect the Chiefs to cover. This will be a game where the Chiefs get up and just try and get out of it. The energy probably won’t be sustained for four quarters.

There will be a couple games down the final stretch of the season in which the matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs equates to the Super Bowl for the other team—this one against the Cardinals is the first. I think the Cardinals challenge the Chiefs in their passing game, but they are not simply enough for all the things Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and Kareem Hunt are capable of. The Chiefs’ defense plays much better against a weak opponent, giving a dose of false hope ahead of the game on everybody’s mind—the Rams in Mexico City. A late, trash-time touchdown by the Cardinals provides the dreaded backdoor cover for you betting folks.

Let’s not spend too much time on this one. It’s a 17-point line which isn’t enough.

Well, *cough, cough* after getting RIPPED apart by Chiefs fans far and wide for predicting the Browns would upset the Chiefs, I am BACK to my optimistic ways. Chiefs win 48-13. Josh Rosendoesn’t stand a chance. The 2-6 Cardinals couldn’t upset the Chiefs if they try. Chiefs victory. At home. 48-13. Sunday. Drop mic.

This game is simply a stepping stone for next Monday night against the Rams. I don’t necessarily care about this game, and I don’t think the fan base does either. But don’t get me wrong, this, and the rest of the games down the final stretch of the season, do matter. If the Chiefs decide to sit this one out and let a lackluster Cardinals team beat them at home, it WILL come back to bite them come January. But I’m not expecting that to happen.

I’m looking forward to next week against the Rams, where the Chiefs’ picks will be much more difficult. Maybe we’ll see a little movement then!
