Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are undefeated thus far into the season, proudly sporting their 5-0 record. Without a doubt, the Chiefs rank amongst one of the best teams in this year’s season. The most surprising aspect of their offense is Patrick Mahomes, who has thrown 14 touchdowns to just 2 interceptions. Mahomes professional start is the best of any quarterback. He was undoubtedly helped out by the 2017 season, which saw him sit out his rookie season and learn behind veteran Alex Smith. Obviously the move paid off since Mahomes has been one hell of a playmaker this season. Thanks to his efforts, Kansas City ranks no. 2 in the NFL in points scored per game. With Mahomes, Hunt and Hill, KC undoubtedly has one of the most stacked offenses in the NFL. We’ll have to see if Tom Brady & Co. can keep pace this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Patrick Mahomes (1,513 passing yards, 14 TD, 2 INT), Kareem Hunt (376 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and Tyreek Hill (425 receiving yards, 3 TD, 27 REC).
New England Patriots
Most NFL wagering online pundits were questioning the Pats’ dominance after they posted back to back losses to the Jags and Lions. However, since then, New England has gone 0-2 pummeling the Dolphins 38-7 in Week 4 and triumphing over the Colts 38-24 in Week 5. Now New England looks to build on their AFC East lead by taking out one of the top dogs in the conference. Surprisingly, many bettors feel this will be the same matchup for the AFC Conference Championship. It would be certainly be interesting if that were true. And if that does pan out, then this Sunday’s matchup is to determine who gets the home field advantage in the playoffs. Considering how deadly Brady is at home in January, Kansas City better come out on top this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Tom Brady (1,259 passing yards, 12 TD, 6 INT), Sony Michel (294 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Rob Gronkowski (308 receiving yards, 1 TD, 23 REC).
