5 bold predictions for the Patriots vs. Chiefs matchup in Week 4

 

So the Ravens did not fair well but Lamar had one of his worst days as a passer and I don't credit the Chiefs for that. The dude was just off. If Cam and the boys can play mistake free football and execute better, they have a shot in this one IMO. Still, an uphill battle for sure against the defacto best team in the AFC. Things to look for:

- Can the running game continue the way it has, especially going up against such a high powered offense?

- Can we continue to see success from Dugger and Joejuan against TE's going up against Kelce?

- Which Jules are we going to see? Career day against the Hawks in a similar match up or controlled for a few catches and 20 something yards?

- Can this secondary step up against Mahomes and make some plays? The man is great, but he has a bit of gunslinger in him.

I think that even if Kelce gets erased from the game Mahomes can still march down the field and drop a TD. On the bright side I don't think this defense can play any worse then they did against the Seahawks. On the other hand the Chief's defense is not as bad as the Seahawks. My biggest concern is that if we fall behind early can our WRs be counted on to actually make plays and keep us in the game? I have a feeling that the answer to that is a no, so have to keep the game within one score. We will need all 3 units to step up, if one of them has a day off the Chiefs will bury us. This game is winnable but its not gonna be easy to pull off.

I have neglected my adopt-a-Patriot duties so far. I had David Andrews so I will have a couple more weeks off with him sadly. 

As for Kyle Dugger, it looks like he has made a lot more progress more quickly than many thought it would (at least when he was drafted). This will be a big test. We have a big stable of DBs but we will ned them all for the Chiefs. I'm looking for him to have a lot more snaps, and potentially a role shadowing Kelce. There will be potential for national prominence - hopefully for the right reasons.

I'm anticipating a game a lot like the one against the Seahawks, but I think the Chiefs will pull away at the end. Hope I'm wrong but the way the Chiefs mostly snuffed out the Ravens running game makes me think that the Pats won't be able to play the sort of game they'll need to win.

I think we are going to see a lot of sweeps and outside running from the Patriots

I'm reserving my opinion on that one because the last game showed that the passing game is still very much a work in progress.

Well, in theory. I would say the Ravens actually have the better WR/TE corps. But McDaniels, on a good day, is much better at calling plays and scheming guys open.

For the game in general - I don't completely rule-out BB having a great game plan and limiting the KC offense (they struggled against LAC two weeks ago), but I have had this game marked down as a loss for a while.

OK, Here me out. BB is the mad genius with a major ego and competitive streak. He would like nothing more than beating the Chiefs and he been working on the game plan for months. Here is what we will see this week that will shock KC.

Bill has been saving his secret weapon for this game. TE Devin Asiasi. Just look at the 1st 3 games, basically zero TE passing game. Cam Newton whole career has been using the TE and now so far nothing. IMO DA goes off this game. 😁

Positive thoughts - they hung with KC last year, despite being severely banged up. If that Harry TD had stood (which it should have), who knows what would have happened.

Its about matchups, I know Monday night looked scary but the Ravens just don't matchup well with the Chiefs. I think we can keep this game close but not sure if we can close it out.

It looks like James White will be back. Harris and Gunner are also healthy and can get activated. JJ Taylor time over?

Belichick is 16-4 ATS as a 7+ underdog. Should be a close game I just don't think we can pull it off.
