It’s already Week 14 of the National Football League regular season. It seems like yesterday that we were sitting around this summer, talking about how the slate was going to play out for the men who call Arrowhead Stadium home. It certainly has been a different road than expected, but we have ended up in the same place.
At 7-5, Kansas City is coming down the stretch like a truck without brakes. The Chiefs have won six straight games and now come home for three of its final four games. All four of the contests are against teams at least two games under .500. Can the Chiefs make it seven in a row?
Here are the Arrowhead Addict Week 14 NFL picks, with all lines from OddsShark.
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (-11.5)
By nature, most Kansas City (7-5) fans get nervous when the team is heavily favored. In the past, it means a ridiculous loss and much pain afterwards. This group has proven to be different over the last two weeks, coming from behind to beat Buffalo and Oakland. There is a certain confidence that should put us all at ease. Plus, San Diego (3-9) stinks.
Pick: Kansas City 34, San Diego 13
