An early look at the various picks and predictions from NFL media outlets show an overwhelming confidence in the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
The Miami Dolphins could represent the classic trap game on the schedule. No one apparently seems to think that’s really possible, however.
Even when asked for their upset picks, there’s not a single NFL analyst to be found (so far, at least) willing to go out on a limb to pick the Miami Dolphins to upset the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. Instead, the Chiefs are clearly being favored to finish what they’ve started, which is a determined run toward the postseason.
For the last two weeks, the Chiefs have conducted their business just as it was mapped out in their game plans against both the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers. At one point, the Chiefs freefall in the standings left them tied with both teams with just four weeks to go in the season. Now the Chiefs have defeated both teams and have a firm grip once again on the AFC West lead.

The only thing left is for the Chargers to lose or the Chiefs to win a single game with two contests remaining on the schedule. That either means a victory this week against the Dolphins at home or a road win over the Denver Broncos in Week 17. Andy Reid is likely going to want to punch his ticket sooner than later, especially before hitting the not-so-friendly confines of Mile High.
Fortunately everyone thinks the Chiefs will have no problem getting it done. Over at SB Nation, every single expert of eight picked the Chiefs to win. CBS Sports did the same, picking the Chiefs over the Fins. The Sporting News picked the Chiefs to win by more than 20. Over at ESPN, not every pick is in just yet, but those submitted already are all in favor of Kansas City.
