After last week’s beating, it’s hard to be positive. It’s hard to think the Chiefs can go on the road and win.
The Lions and the Chiefs seem to be heading in opposite directions, one up and the other down. On thing is for sure, the two will collide this Sunday.
If the Chiefs have any chance if winning, Matt Cassel us going to have to step up. The Chiefs will need to gave a passing game on Sunday. The Lions interior line is too big and nasty to run on with Jamaal Charles. Some analysts have even suggested sitting Charles in fantasy football this week. If Cassel, Dwayne Bowe, and Steve Breaston can click, the Chiefs will have a chance.
Kendrick Lewis will need a big game. He struggled once Eric Berry went down last week. If he continues to miss tackles, the Chiefs will be in trouble.
So, for my prediction. I have heard all the rumblings about fans wanting Haley fired and the Chiefs being a contender for the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, but I’m not buying it. Kansas City will respond and get the win. Cassel will throw for a couple touchdowns and have a solid game. Chiefs 23, Lions 21.
