The Kansas City Chiefs are only favored 4.5 points at home, and that means that the team only got 1.5 points aside from being in Arrowhead Stadium. The Eagles are a very good team that has proven that they are not to be trifled with, and The Chiefs need to come back and have another signature win. The Eagles have to beat the Chiefs for the same reason, and we must consider if the Chiefs defense will bend and not break. They cannot allow Carson Wentz to be too good, and therein lies their trouble.

No Eric Berry

We can talk all day about how great the Chiefs defense is, but there is no Eric Berry there for them.

That means that the Chiefs are playing without their leader. He is practically the face of the franchise, and he will miss the rest of the season. The Chiefs defense has to bend and let the Eagles score without breaking and letting the Eagles run away with this game.

Kareem Hunt

Kareem Hunt has to be so good that the Eagles defense cannot keep up. It would be wise for the Chiefs to hold the ball as long as possible so that they can keep their defense off the field, and they could waste a lot of time that the Eagles would have used to build their own scoring drives. This will be an interesting matchup because the Chiefs are playing a team that runs an offense that is much like their own. There are a number of people who think that these two offenses will be equally effective, and we will see because the Eagles do not have Kareem Hunt.

Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz is a very good player who started his second season very well. However, he is not a seasoned veteran who can simply throw the ball to anyone he wants to score quickly. He cannot run an offense that gets him off the field quickly and out of danger, and he knows that many people on the Chiefs defense will want to hit him as hard as possible.

The Chiefs could play inspired defense that might cause major issues for the Eagles. This could lead to injuries, and the Chiefs would get out in front of the Eagles quickly.

Andy Reid

I trust Andy Reid to manage a game more than anyone else in this matchup. The Eagles could do many smart things to keep their team in the best position to win, but it is more likely that the Eagles will make a couple mistakes that will cause them to turn the ball over.

The Chiefs will keep handing off to Kareem Hunt because that is their best chance to win, and the time of possession for the Chiefs will far exceed whatever the Eagles get. This tiny fact will give the Chiefs the win in a very unforgiving Arrowhead Stadium
