This week 2 matchup features the Eagles traveling to Kansas City to face the Chiefs.
The Eagles will look to go to 2-0 after beating Washington in week 1.
The last time the Eagles and the Chiefs matched up was in 2013 when the Chiefs came out on top 26-16.
Second year QB Carson Wentz will look to make significant strides in year 2. The Eagles traded away one of their top receivers but he was still able to go 26-39 for 307 yards and two touchdowns in the week 1 win against Washington.
Wentz faces a much tougher test against Kansas City, but they are without star safety Eric Berry for the rest of the year so the secondary will be tested.
Look for Wentz to throw two touchdown passes and an interception in this game.
LeGarrette Blount was shut down by the Washington front seven and carried the ball 14 times for just 46 yards. The NFL’s leader in rushing touchdowns in 2016 was held out of the end zone and I expect that trend to continue in this game.
Zach Ertz was the top passing option for the Eagles and he may flirt with a 100 yard receiving game if he gets 8-9 targets again.
The defense did a good job of slowing down Kirk Cousins and the Washington passing attack, as he was sacked 4 times and threw just 1 touchdown pass. If they can get that kind of pressure on Alex Smith it could lead to an easy win.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs picked up a huge win on the road in week 1. Going into the defending champs house and embarrassing them 42-27.
Alex Smith and the Chiefs passing attack was in a rhythm all game long, as he threw for 368 yards and 4 touchdown passes. The Chiefs scored 3 touchdowns in the fourth and it will be tough to slow them down in week 2.
Smith should have another good game and throw for 2 touchdowns without a turnover.
Rookie Kareem Hunt was one of the best players on the field against New England, as he had 148 yards rushing and grabbed 5 passes for 98 yards with 3 total touchdowns. Hunt will be a workhorse and should have another great game.
Tyreke Hill broke the top off the Pats defense with a 75 yard TD bomb and will be a threat to score deep again in this game.
The Chiefs defense shut down the Pats offense all game. While the gave up 3 touchdowns on the ground, the running game never really got going as no one on the Pats averaged over 3.8 yards per carry.
Look for Tamba Hali and Justin Houston to each get into the backfield with a sack. The Chiefs defense will have a dominate game against the Eagles offensive line.
