Why Kansas City Could Win: Through the draft, the Chiefs have done an exceptional job adding dynamic young play-makers. Add that to an improving defense and innovative offensive play calling and you can understand why the Chiefs are the only remaining undefeated team.
As always, the Colts struggle against the run, so expect a healthy dose of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles. If the Chiefs can control the clock and effectively run the football, they could shock a lot of people this weekend.
Why Indianapolis Could Win: I’ll be honest, I’m not really drinking the KC kool-aid. Despite an exciting young core, this team has a lot of holes. They lack receiver depth, and Matt Cassel has proven to be one of the league’s most overpaid players during his time in KC.
Peyton Manning will lead the league’s second best passing attack against the eighth-worst pass defense, and should be able to top the 300 yard mark for his fourth time in five weeks.
Final Score: 31-27 Indianapolis. Although the Chiefs sport some unbelievably fast and exciting players (i.e. Dexter McCluster), ultimately this Colts team will prove themselves the better team. The Chiefs will need to score on big plays, and ultimately may have to delve into their bag of tricks to upend the Colts in Indy.
The Chiefs are coming off a bye week and have had a week to prepare for the Colts. A win on Sunday would be a testament to their well constructed coaching staff.
