4. Week 11 vs. Dallas Cowboys
At this point, we’re grasping for straws just a bit. Yes, the Cowboys can put up points. Dan Prescott, Zeke Elliott, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup—it’s a veritable fantasy team there on offense. Thus we’re pretty sure we can predict some impressive fireworks on display at Arrowhead when these teams match up midway through the season.
Defensively, can the Cowboys slow or stop the Chiefs at this point? Micah Parsons looks the part of a difference maker in the heart of the defense, but he’s likely going to need more help than what the Cowboys can offer.
If this doesn’t sound like an overly tough matchup, you’re reading our minds, but we’re also not too concerned about the likes of the Raiders or Broncos, the Bengals or Giants.
The Steelers or even this week’s matchup of the Washington Football Team might have served as better choices, but each of these franchises are one-sided. Both Pittsburgh and Washington are defensive monsters with the talent to frustrate the league’s best offenses. At the same time, the offensive capabilities of either team are lacking, at best, and wouldn’t really scare anyone as a “tough” matchup to watch.
In addition, offense seems to be more dangerous than anything else and the Chiefs have already watched great offenses carve their way to victory (or close calls) early this year.
