The Kansas City Chiefs will be 6-0 by 4:15 tomorrow. Andy Reid has his Chiefs off to a great start and we don’t see the Raiders being able to do much against the Chiefs defense. The Kansas City Chiefs have one of the best defenses in the NFL this season.
Ranked 7th overall, we have to say they aren’t getting the respect they deserve. They are ranked 4th against the pass and Pryor is going to find out how tough it is to move the ball against the Chiefs.
They bring pressure to every quarterback they face, Pryor may think his ability to run will help him, but he is going to find out just how tough it is to escape the great pass rush the Chiefs are capable of bringing.
The Chiefs rush defense is still a work in progress, they are ranked 21st against the rush but the Raiders aren’t the rushing team they were in years past. They are in the top 10 in rushing listed at number 9, but they aren’t what I would consider a power house rushing team.
The Chiefs offense led by Alex Smith should have a field day picking apart the Raiders defensive secondary. The Raiders pass defense comes into week 6 ranked at 21st in the NFL. Smith and his Chiefs offense should be able to throw at will. The receivers just need to make the catch.
The Chiefs are favored in week 6 by 8-1/2 points and we just don’t think that is enough. The Chiefs should win this game by double digits.
