The picks are in for Week 2 of NFL action and it appears the experts are still confident in the Kansas City Chiefs despite the beating the team took at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons.
The experts panel of three from FanSided.com, which just happens to contain one big Chiefs homer, voted 2-1 that the Chiefs would get their first win against the Buffalo Bills.
Over at ESPN, nine of the 12 experts picked the Chiefs, as did the Accuscore simulations. Unfortunately, the folks in the Pigskin Pick’em leagues went with the Bills. It should be noted that Accuscore thinks the contest could go either way, projecting KC to win in just 50 percent of the simulations.
Yahoo! Sports is not as high on the Chiefs. Two of the three experts over there picked the Bills, as did the readers.
Albert Breer of NFL.com had this to say about the weekend’s game:
Last year, the Buffalo Bills crumbled after losing Fred Jackson, who was as important to his team as the quarterback is to many other clubs. So this looks like a “get well” game for a Kansas City Chiefs defense that was on the wrong end of Matt Ryan’s coming-out party for the Atlanta Falcons last week
And lastly, CBS Sports apparently hates the Chiefs. Only two of their eight analysts picked the Chiefs.
Who are you picking?
