yeah, lol

All joking aside, I really thought it was too early in the season to pretend Marcus Maye is good, but apparently I was wrong.

I went with OKC here for a few reasons. They have definitely improved their offense, but getting rid of Cam Heyward was a huge hit to their defense. Their interior defensive line, well, I just don't see how it gets any pressure on Mahomes. On top of that, Kirk Cousins has been an interception machine as of late, throwing 3 more yesterday. Even if Mahomes were to throw multiple picks tonight I feel that Portlands defense draws the short straw, but right now, I just feel OKC is the better team.

I think Pat Mahomes outduels a Turnover prone cousins. The interior of the Portland Dline is lacking and not having Trufant and having to rely on Bausby and Ojemudia even with this safety bracket they are going to get picked apart in man which I have to assume Portland is playing primarily due to Peters sticking Robinson. While Dupree has played well this year he really is the only consistent pass rush threat and he faces Bakhtiari who I believe limits his effectiveness.

I think Travis Fulgham has 12 catches for 125 yards and a TD, but OKC does a good job of executing their game plan otherwise and forcing Cousins to dink and dunk all game.

Going Portland. Obviously both defenses have their issues, but I believe Portland is able to outscore OKC. I like Montgomery here tbh, contrary to Blue, and either Fulgham or Andrews is going to enjoy a big game in the middle of the field. 31-28 Portland

I think the OKC defensive line keeps Portland from being able to run the ball effectively and I don't trust Cousins to win without a viable run game.

Oklahoma City is one of the more well rounded rosters with talent on both sides. I think their strength in coverage aligns well with a strong receiver core from Portland. I also think Mahomes has a much better advantage with Trufant out. I’ll take the home team in an impressive performance.

Even a Fulgham couldn't pivot this match in Portland's favor. 

I do think both teams are recovering nicely this season and position themselves for next year.

Yeah, it just not all there yet for Portland and Cousins isn't going to cut it. And I think OKC is a better team than they're given credit for, they just entered the season in a sorry state.

I also want to say that even without winning I very much enjoy EPC so far.

I like OKC here.   I think if Blew sticks.it out this year, this team is going to be dangerous next year.
