Jets @ Chiefs, 3:25 PM CT
The Chiefs are sitting at 1-1 and could make a statement this week by defending their home turf against one of the best offenses so far in the NFL. A match up that draws my attention in this one is Darrelle Revis covering Jeremy Maclin on the outside. Revis has played corner about as well as a 73-year-old woman would in the first two games of the season, despite being regarded as one of the top corners in the league heading into 2016. I know Alex Smith isn’t usually one to air it out on
game days, but look for the Chiefs to go deep down the field to test Revis at least a couple times in this one. On the other side of the ball, the Chiefs defense has its hands full with a very complete Jets offense. Matt Forte has been everything they could have asked for so far, ranking second in the NFL in rushing yards and going for three scores last week on Thursday Night Football. Not to be outdone by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who won AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors by throwing for 374 yards and helping his team put up 37 points. Unless Tamba Hali and company can wreak havoc on Fitzpatrick, the Jets offensive will continue to put up points and get a big win in Arrowhead Stadium this week.
