Two division winners in 2020 who currently sit 2-3 meet in an arguably must-win game for both if they’re going to have a chance at regrouping and making a run at the division. Will Mahomes get his Chiefs back on track, or will WFT keep up their lose one / win one act?
Kansas was badly beaten on SNF as the Buffalo Bills walked into Arrowhead and kicked the Chiefs up and down the field on their way to an 18-point win. For the first time since the Super Bowl, we saw the Chiefs offense struggle to get in a rhythm and get the ball in the endzone, although they should be able to bounce back against an underwhelming Washington pass defense here.
Washington was handily beaten by the New Orleans Saints in Week 5 and appear to be the gatekeepers of the good NFL teams this year. Taylor Heinicke is still deputising for Ryan Fitzpatrick and has impressed even if he has proved to be a little limited. Heinicke likes big-bodied targets, he likes to throw it up high for his guys to go and get, and for that reason, TE’s become a big part of the offense, and with Logan Thomas ruled OUT it’ll be Ricky Seals-Jones time to shine. Seals-Jones had 5 receptions on 9 targets for 41 yards against New Orleans last week and that stat-line is eerily similar to his only previous career game vs Kansas in which he had 5 receptions on 9 targets for 51 yards!
These teams rank as the bottom two in points per game allowed this season, whilst both rank inside the top 12 for points scored per game.. If that doesn’t say shootout then I don’t know what does!
Spread: Chiefs -6.5
