The Chiefs came close to breaking last week against the Lions before Patrick Mahomes found some life to lead a game-winning touchdown drive.
It was a quiet one overall from the reigning MVP as Mahomes failed to throw a single touchdown pass, but even so, the Chiefs still remain undefeated as they head back home to face the Colts.
Indianapolis were the heavy favourites last week against the Raiders in a game they really should have won. The Colts put up 346-yards of total offence in the 31-24 loss, but a complete lack of possession cost Indy a chance.
This week’s game is a rematch of last years Divisional Playoff game. The Colts proved no match at Arrowhead losing 31-13 in a game Kansas City dominated in the air and on the ground, while the Chiefs also held Indianapolis 0/9 on third down.
Neither coach will read too much into last years meeting, however the Colts will need to establish the run game early if they hold any hope of pulling off an upset.
At the same time, Indianapolis can also learn a lot from Detroit last week. The Lions did a great job of putting pressure on Mahomes in the pocket, causing him to rush a handful of throws he normally would have made.
Rushing Mahomes is key to disrupting the flow of Kansas City’s offence, but he can still burn you on the ground. The line looks just about right here, and it’s worth backing the Chiefs to Cover.
Tip: Kansas City Chiefs at $1.15
