KANSAS CITY CHIEFS @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Two team’s sitting at 1-2 on the year, one unsurprisingly so and the other shockingly so. The Eagles are looking to bounce back from a dismantling at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys on MNF, whilst the Chiefs look to bounce back from consecutive defeats and are yet to look like the dominant Chiefs we’ve come to know.

The back-to-back AFC Champion Chiefs find themselves bottom of the AFC West after suffering a second loss on the bounce as they fell to their divisional rivals at Arrowhead. Justin Herbert and the Chargers offense were able to take advantage of an underwhelming Chiefs defense, whilst the Chargers were also able to take the ball away and pick off Patrick Mahomes twice on their way to a win. We know KC are super talented but we’d be lying if we said they didn’t have holes, especially on their O-Line and receiver depth. They should have enough to play the majority of this game with a lead against an Eagles D that leaves a lot to be desired but you have to wonder if some of the better defensive coordinators in the NFL have maybe figured out this KC passing attack. 

Philly were outclassed by their NFC East rivals on MNF in Week 3, as Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys easily handled business on their way to the top of the division. Jalen Hurst is too inconsistent to be a winning NFL QB at this stage of his career and I believe they would best serve him by building a strong running game and scheming up DeVonta Smith for 10+ targets a week, alas though, that hasn’t happened. In fact, Miles Sanders only had two rushing attempts against the Cowboys, which for me is criminal. Philly’s misuse of their supposed starting RB is something we could benefit from though, with the Eagles likely to play the majority of this game from behind, as they did on MNF, they could once again completely get away from the run game and that makes the under on both Sanders 56.5 rushing yards & 13.5 rushing attempts line a nice play. He hasn’t gone over on either of those lines since Week 1 and that was in a game the Eagles played with the lead for the majority.
