Three seasons ago, the Kansas City Chiefs overwhelmed the New York Jets in a 26-point win that turned out as lopsided as you'd expect a matchup between Patrick Mahomes and Sam Darnold. Three years later, the quarterback battle sounds as one-sided given that Aaron Rodgers is injured and Mahomes reigns supreme as the best player in the game.
As the Chiefs and Jets prepare to square off on Sunday Night Football, the two franchises are headed in very different directions. A season-opening shot-in-the-foot for the Chiefs has been largely forgotten in the two wins since. K.C. is already in the pole position in the AFC West for an eighth consecutive season.
As for the Jets, they're sliding, as expected, with zero spark on offense. A solid defense can only keep a team in the game for so long before fatigue becomes an issue. With the Chiefs coming to town, a team with a solid defensive unit of its own, it's shaping up to be another dominant win for Mahomes and company.
But how will things turn out? Only time will tell. Here's all you need to know for this week's Chiefs-Jets matchup.

It's interesting to follow the spread of this game over time as the tone at quarterback changes for the Jets. Back in May, Draft Kings had this spread at -1 in favor of the Chiefs, who are the visitors here. Then after Aaron Rodgers went down, that spread went to -7. Now that Zach Wilson has proven to be just as bad as before, the Chiefs began this week as 9-point favorites.
