The Kansas City Chiefs will look to push their winning streak to five games today when the Miami Dolphins pay a visit to Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs will look to avoid a letdown. Though they are favored, they are coming off an emotional overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football.
The short week, combined with winless Miami’s desperation to finally win, makes this the perfect trap game for the Chiefs.
Will the Chiefs rise to the challenge or will their win-streak stop at four? Let’s see what the Arrowhead Addict staff thinks.
Chiefs 28, Dolphins 16
The Chiefs are too well coached to choke heading into this game. This team has shown great resolve and now that they are back in first place I just don’t see them taking their foot off the gas vs. the Dolphins. KC’s defense will be too much for Miami.
Chiefs 17, Miami 13
This turns out to be a closer game than many may want it to be. The Chiefs and Dolphins defenses are ranked 22 and 23 respectively. The Dolphins defense has been very good at times, just like the Chiefs. The difference in this game will be the Chiefs offense and the challenge for the Dolphins offense that is known as Arrowhead. Go Chiefs! Go 12th man… and woman!
Chiefs 28, Dolphins 21
The Dolphins are better than their record and the Chiefs are coming off a short week and an emotional, division win.
Chiefs 27 Dolphins 13
The Chiefs defense has started to play like at a high level and they are too much for the Matt Moore led Dolphins today. The defense sets the offense up with a couple of turnovers and the combination of Jackie Battle running the ball and Matt Cassel getting the ball to his trio of WRs is enough to put Miami away.
Chiefs 31, Dolphins 17
There, but for the grace of Todd… Yes, after Week Two or Three, Chiefs fans might have thought we’d be the ones facing 0-7 at this point in the season. And in the first half of today’s contest with winless Miami, all the concerns that this is a “trap” game for the resurgent Chiefs will seem valid; after a poor offensive first half, the score may even be tied at the break. But Cassel will get most of his yards in the final two quarters as the Chiefs pull away.
