Week 9: VS Minnesota Vikings, 12:00 PM, November 3rd
Prediction: KC 31, MIN 7
The Minnesota Vikings should not be underestimated, but that is not to say that they will break the Chiefs’ eight-game winning streak. The Vikes are one of the stingiest pass defenses in the NFL (fourth last year with 5.7 net yards/attempt allowed), but their front line is in shambles and Spagnuolo’s blitzing front should keep Kirk Cousins miserable all afternoon.
Week 10: AT Tennessee Titans, 12:00 PM, November 10th
Prediction: KC 35, TEN 21
The Tennessee Titans are always a tough match-up, and playing at Nissan Stadium will only make it that much more difficult for the Chiefs to topple them. The Titans will be able to put up around three touchdowns, with an emphasis being placed on Derrick Henry and the running game (which will give the Chiefs a chance to show if they’ve improved here under Spags’ new system). Quarterback Marcus Mariota will not be able to get anything promising going against the Chiefs, which will lead to the Titans’ demise and keep the Chiefs’ winning streak alive.
Week 11: AT Los Angeles Chargers, 7:15 PM, November 18th (Monday Night Football)
Prediction: KC 31, LAC 7
The Chiefs will face off against the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City in Week 11, with the former being labeled as the away team. It will be a test for both the offense and defense, but one that they will ace almost to perfection. Quarterback Philip Rivers and his blue crew beat the Chiefs once last season, but Reid will not let that happen again, at least this week. Rivers will probably throw an interception or three, sealing the deal to a Chiefs win and keeping the win streak alive.
