The predictions are in for this week’s showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) and Jacksonville Jaguars (3-1) at Arrowhead Stadium, and not surprisingly the national prognosticators are picking this one to be a close call.
Most analysts are going with the Chiefs, although more than a few think the Jaguars will come away with a win. A few think the Chiefs will win, but not by enough to cover a three-point spread.
This game stands as the marquee matchup of the weekend as well as one of the most intriguing of the NFL’s first five weeks. It’ll be strength against strength as Jacksonville’s top-ranked defense tries to slow down the high-powered Chiefs offense led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
The game kicks off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET/12 p.m. CT in front of what should be a revved-up Arrowhead Stadium crowd. It’s the second home game of the season for the Chiefs, and having their crowd at their back won’t hurt their chances.
