Kansas City is a Super Bowl favorite this season thanks to a dynamic offense featuring Patrick Mahomes. He introduced himself to the league and set it on fires last season.
Jacksonville is looking to get past the stumbles of last season and prove they are a team on the rise. They might have found the missing piece in QB Nick Foles.
Kansas City Chiefs
You can say what you want about coach Andy Reid but when it comes to his teams in the regular season they put up points and they win. That is going to happen again this year even though there are some questions. That need to be answered.
The offense will look very similar to a year ago featuring Mahomes and TE Travis Kelce, maybe the best at their respective positions. They are going to throw the ball a lot to speedy wideouts Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins too.
The ground game looks like a committee approach. Maybe rookie RB Darwin Thompson emerges but really it is just about keeping defenses honest.
The defense will once again determine how far this team goes and they made some changes there. They are looking for more playmakers which is why they traded for Frank Clark at defensive end and signed Tyrann Mathieu
K.C. looks good but they are going to be tested in this spot.
The Blake Bortles era is over in Jacksonville so fans and teammates no longer have the QB to kick around. Instead they brought in winner Nick Foles.
It definitely looks like an upgrade but it does not change the fact that there is not a lot of offensive skill in Jacksonville. The receivers might be the lightest group in the league, with former Chief Chris Conley.
Leonard Fournette is supposed to give the team an offensive identity but he has been more disappointment than beast over his short time in the league. They need him to be the latter if they are going to win consistently.
The defense looks really good. They were last year and they added to that strength this season. Shutting down the Chiefs is really tough but more than other teams they can take stuff away.
The key to beating Kansas City is to be rock solid in your approach. Doug Marrone is just mediocre in terms of NFL coaches. His players give him a chance but we will see.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Jacksonville +3.5
This one seems like it will be all about the hook. I like the Jags in their home opener to keep this one close with a thing or two we might not have seen. They could win outright but either way they fight it out.
