Somethings never change and it looks like the AFC West is pretty much a done deal. The Chiefs now have a two game division lead and will look to expand that lead this week. Let’s go!
Mistakes, turnovers, bad coaching and play calling are not a recipe for success. They are finding ways to lose instead of winning. Derek Carr was 32 of 44 (73%) for 311 yards and 2 touchdowns with 4 rushes for 20 yards. He also had a very costly fumble. Josh Jacobs had 15 carries for 48 yards and 3 receptions for 25 yards. Darren Waller had 9 receptions for 88 yards. The defense had 1 sack and 6.5 tackles for loss. Daniel Carlson was perfect with 3 fieldgoals and 2 extra points. The Raiders settled for fieldgoals while the Bills scored touchdowns. Overall, NO BUENO!
Winless team vs winless team, who saw a shootout happening. The Broncos went to Jersey and got it done with a 3rd string quarterback. Brett Rypien was 19 of 31 (61%) for 242 Yards and 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Melvin Gordon had 23 carries for 107 yards and 2 touchdowns. Tim Patrick had 6 receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 6 sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss. Brandon McManus was perfect with 3 fieldgoals and 4 extra points. The Broncos played well and found a way to win led by their defense.
For the 1st half it looked like the Chargers were going to pull this one off. Then, Brady happened. Justin Herbert was 20 of 25 (80%) for 290 yards with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. He was also the leading rusher with 5 carries for 14 yards. Jalen Guyton had 1 reception for 72 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 0 sacks and 2 tackles for loss. Michael Bagley was 1 for 2 on fieldgoals and 4 for 4 on extra points. This one is simple, you are not going to win if you let Tom Brady throw 5 touchdowns.
What a great game. The difference was the second half changes Andy Reid made and the defense play. Patrick Mahomes was 19 of 29 (65%) for 236 yards and 2 touchdowns with 8 carries for 28 yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 16 carries for 64 yards with 3 receptions for 27 yards. Travis Kelce had 3 receptions for 70 yards. The defense had 2 sacks, 4 tackles for loss and 3 interceptions with one returned for a touchdown. This was a great win for the Chiefs as they are the only undefeated team in the division.
Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs
This is not going to be a good game at all. The Raiders don’t have the horses to stay up with this scoring machine and will more than likely be without Ruggs and Edwards again. Not a good thing.
Chiefs 52 Raiders 27
Spread: -13.5 Raiders
Los Angeles Chargers at New Orleans Saints
The Chargers are playing good ball but going on the road to New Orleans is not an easy place to win. As good as they are playing, beating the Orleans boys at home is a very big task.
Saints 31 Chargers 21
Spread: -7.5 Chargers
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots
This game is up in the air. It may or may not be played due to Covid-19 positive test on the Patriots. Cam Newton and now Stephon Gilmore have tested positive. If the game is played, the Patriots still have the Hoodie.
Patriots 21 Broncos 10
Spread: -11 Broncos
Week 4: 4-0 Season: 11-4
This could be the weekend that the Chiefs secure the Division and lock up a playoff spot. (I know, I know but it is very close). Enjoy boys!!!
