Kansas City Chiefs vs Jacksonville Jaguars (By: JotTeWe)
If you ever wanted to start watching football or show this great game to someone, you might want to watch this one tonight: Chiefs at home, hosting the Jaguars from Jacksonville.
It's just the 2nd home game for the Chiefs. At Arrowhead, they are playing some awesome football regularly. Yet, they are one of just two undefeated teams (LA Rams) this season despite playing 3 of their first four games on the road. They won at PIT, they won at LA (Charcgers) and they one at Denver last week, beating one of the better Ds in the league.
QB Mahomes continues to play great football, his stats are phenomenal right away: 14 TDs, no (nada; zero!) INT.
Tonight he'll face the leagues best D. The Jags continued to build therir D over the past few years, using lots of Draftpicks to enhance the depth and add playmakers. They did well and are tough to beat.
Yet their problem in this one might be the offense: JAX isn't scoring many points (just 22 / game). Two weeks ago, they somehow managed to loose against the Titans without scoring a single TD.
Many people say that tonights game will be Mahomes test vs the best. He has to show whether or not he's capable to beat a Top5 D. That's right.
Yet, tonights game will be the test for the JAX D, too. They played the Jets, Titans and Giants this far - not the best offenses in the game. They also played the Patriots, but please remember: Brady had to play without any dependable Wideouts, basically...
But the main reason for me to pick the CHeifs in this one: JAXs RB1 Leonard Fournette is out. The Jaguars rely on their rushing game pretty much. It sets up the possibility for play-action and therefore opens up possibilities for QB Bortles. Without Fournette, they'll have to focus on their passing attack way more which shouldn't be enough to overcome the Chiefs.
It will be a great match. I'm sad I cannot watch it myself since the Ravens are playing parallely. If you don't have a team you root for playing at the same time, I really suggest watching this game to anyone!
Conclusion: Chiefs stay undefeated and win it by more than a Field Goal.
