    Is Edelman good to go against KC?

    I'm taking KC, DEN, CAR, ARZ.

    Very much looking forward to the KC/NE game. Upset potential.

    I agree. Bad matchup for New England. I still expect them to win a close game, but KC's pass rush and running game are two things that New England doesn't want to see.

    If KC gets consistent pressure on Brady up the middle, they have a great chance to win. IMO, that is the key to the game after TOs.

    If Maclin doesn't play, the Chiefs will be so much easier to defend.

    The Patriots are 20-5 following a bye week under Bill Belichick; 12-4 in regular season games and 8-1 in divisional rounds. Safe to say Brady and Co will be fully prepared with that added extra week to get healthy.

    Everyone including me thought Brady was done last season when they got rolled by the Chiefs on Monday night.

    I hope the Chiefs give that same kind of performance

    Actually the Patriots are better suited to stuff the run (top-10 rushing defense) with their talented linebackers Collins, Hightower, Mayo, Ninkovich, and Sheard. It's the pass game that the defense is vulnerable against especially from teams like Steelers or Cardinals who possesses elite receivers. Outside of Butler, the Patriot CBs are suspect and rely too much on McCourty and Chung to bail them out.

    This Denver season is remarkable. The amount of luck go their way has been otherworldly, and it keeps going.
