The Bears play a second straight game against the AFC West when they take on the Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. KC is in desperation mode early on as they have dropped three straight games and are rapidly losing ground in their division.
Action will get underway at 1:00 p.m. with veteran QB’s Alex Smith and Jay Cutler squaring off under centre for their respective teams. Someone is going to get to 2-3 and someone is going to be all but out of the running early.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs were supposed to challenge for the AFC West this year, boasting an imposing pass rush on defense and an offense that was revamped with the addition of Jeremy Maclin and the emergence of tight end Travis Kelce.
Things have not fallen in the favour of the Chiefs as they’ve run up against a very tough early schedule, dropping games to the Broncos, Packers and Bengals, three teams with a combined record of 12-0.
What was supposed to be a ferocious defense that would disrupt opposing quarterbacks has been less than stellar as KC has been torched for 105 points in their last three contests.
The Chiefs can find solstice in the fact that they’re not playing a top five calibre offense for a change this week and their own offense has been moving the ball well.
Jamaal Charles has been his usual productive self on the ground and Alex Smith has found chemistry with Jeremy Maclin who has hauled in 140+ yards receiving in back to back weeks on 19 catches.
Well the Bears got a win last week, so that’s one of the four that they’ll likely end up with on the season. They did beat an Oakland team that has been better than many expected and they did it without their number one receiver Alshon Jeffery.
QB Jay Cutler will likely be without his number one target once again this week as he is still battling a hamstring issue and hasn’t been in the lineup since week one.
Robbie Gould continues to be one of the league’s best kickers and he was the MVP last week in the Bears’ win as he nailed three field goals including kicks of 54 and 49 yards in the fourth quarter, the latter coming with two ticks of the clock remaining, sealing the win for the Bears.
Cutler was able to make due in the passing game, utilizing tight end Martellus Bennet for 11 receptions including a touchdown, while also giving a heavy dose of work to running back Matt Forte who caught four passes for 64 yards and rushed the ball 25 times for 91 yards.
The Bears defense however is extremely weak and will be tasked with stopping a KC team that is in desperation mode.
NFL Betting Trends:
• CHI are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games in October.
• KC are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games.
• UNDER is 27-12 in KC’s last 39 home games
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: KC -9.0
KC is just not going to lose this one at home with their backs up against the wall and they’re going to punish the Bears badly. In Chicago’s three losses this season they have been outscored by 59 points (roughly 20 per game). I have to believe that KC is going to put it to Chicago and run them out of the building.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Kansas City 27 – Chicago 17
Kansas City has shown the ability to move the ball through the air and they will get up quick on the Bears and then leave it in the hands of Jamaal Charles to put
Chicago away. Jay Cutler will be under constant pressure and the Bears don’t score points when Cutler is being sacked all day.
