A first place Chiefs team now rested and ready for the second half of the National Football League season will enjoy their visit to NY with a big win on Sunday.
Chiefs: The Chiefs are coming off their bye week, and traditionally, Andy Reid-coached teams are unbeatable after their break (16-2 record dating back to his days in Philadelphia).
No. 1 wide receiver Roger Lewis isn't a phrase anyone would have expected to hear in the summer, but neither would 2-8 Giants.
After dropping a tough game against Dallas, Kansas City will take on a lowly New York Giants team in a game that looks primed to be a blowout. The previous three losses came against one of the NFL's best teams (Steelers) and two talented-if-underachieving opponents (Raiders and Cowboys). Fortunately, they're facing a bad New York Giants team this week that seems close to mailing it in for the season.
KEY TRENDS: The favorite has covered in five of the last five meetings between these two teams but the Chiefs have failed to cover in five of their last six games against the Giants overall. The run defense looked better this week.
I'm expecting a bend-but-don't-break type of game from the D. It'll allow a lot of yards but will end up forcing field goals. "The margins are so small, Going through this tape everybody is going to kick themselves". "Nobody is pointing fingers, but guys have to get called out and get told, you know what I mean?" It's a matter of doing those little things. Special teams was big for us, again, I can't say that enough.
Tesla reveals its first electric truck
Inside the truck's cabin - tall enough for a driver to stand upright - there are two large touchscreen interfaces. Tesla is still having issues getting the Model 3 up and running, plus the new Model Y crossover is expected soon.
One could also point a finger at nine Kansas City penalties that gifted NY 87 yards. Not anymore, though, as Houston appears well rested and ready to roll down the stretch coming off the bye.
What kept NY alive on Sunday was a lethargic Kansas City offense that couldn't seem to get out of its own way.
We saw what happened when Reid made a decision to let wide receiver Tyreek Hill throw the ball in the red zone earlier this year and now we got to see a designed play where Kelce is throwing the ball.
However, they struggled to get much else going on offense, as Smith, who finished 27 of 40 for 230 yards and no touchdowns, struggled to get into a rhythm.
If the Chiefs don't get back to being aggressive and creative in ways we saw in the early part of the season, this will be another good regular season, that could have been a dominant one, that will end with a first-round loss in the playoffs. I don't think there's anything at this point that's glaring, that every defense these past few weeks is playing us a certain way, They're all different.
