The Kansas City Chiefs are 8-5 and are playing the 6-7 St. Louis Rams Sunday but the discrepancies in the two team’s records aren’t enough for the experts to confidently pick the Chiefs.
ESPN.com has released their weekly picks and the experts are split on the Rams and Chiefs.
4 of the 8 ESPN experts picked the Chiefs to win Sunday while the others chose the Rams. The Chiefs are given an edge, however, as they are picked to win by Accuscore and the Pigskin Pick’em league.
3 of the 4 experts from the Sunday Night Countdown crew picked the Chiefs with Mike Didka being the only holdout.
In the Madden 11 simulation, the Chiefs won convincingly, 27-15. Matt Cassel’s electronic counterpart had a successful return to action, throwing for 357 yards and three touchdowns.
Let’s hope the real Matt Cassel is just as successful tomorrow. As per usual, we’ll have out AA staff picks tomorrow as part of our game preview.
