The Kansas City Chiefs are at a bit of a crossroads. In their Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles—a road contest, no less—the Chiefs are entering Lincoln Financial Field on a two-game losing streak with the Buffalo Bills awaiting them in Week 5. This Sunday’s contest is either going to be a sign of life after two straight weeks of defensive frustrations or a third consecutive gut punch that will surely send fans into a panicked frenzy.
Then again, the Eagles are in the exact same position. New head coach Nick Sirianni has lost two consecutive games after dominating in the season-opening win over the Atlanta Falcons. All good will from that game has been lost after two miserable performances in a row that has shown multiple weaknesses on both sides of the roster. To face the Chiefs at this point is a mammoth task for the Eagles, who are widely predicted to fall to 1-3 after the weekend.
The Chiefs and Eagles are both on skids, but K.C. is expected to take care of business. That would even things out in the standings at 2-2 before heading into another important AFC game against the Bills with the Titans also looming on the horizon.
For those wanting to watch the game, CBS is broadcasting the game to the majority of the country in an attempt to give Patrick Mahomes as much airtime as possible (to go with the game in which Andy Reid will be returning to his old stomping grounds in search of his 100th win with the Chiefs).
