Do the Streaks Continue, or Do They End?
What streaks, you ask? Well, since starting the season 0-3, the Kansas City Chiefs are on a four-game winning streak, including Monday's shocker against San Diego. The other streak? How about Miami's 0-7 start this season?
Although this very well may be Tony Sparano's last stand as head coach this season, how much closer can the Dolphins get to a win than they did last weekend against the Giants? Reggie Bush may finally start to do what he was expected to do and against the Chiefs, he should find plenty of holes to make plays.
Kansas City seemingly were lost in their own ways but have silently crept up behind the San Diego Chargers and surprised them with a huge win at home to take the AFC West lead. The Chiefs are riding the back of their young talent and I say, keep riding that train. Jackie Battle and Dexter McCluster have shown they can carry the load when given the chance and their defense has yet to break in their last four games.
The Dolphins could be on pace to have one of their worst seasons since 2007 when they finished the season 1-15; could they end without a win? I doubt that will happen—Miami will win this season and this game could be their best chance to show that.
However, Miami's secondary continues to struggle and they don't have enough talent to keep up with all of Kansas City's receivers, especially with rookie Jon Baldwin finally coming into his own. Don't forget that halfback tandem either.
As close as Miami will get in this game, even entertaining a late-game lead, they won't be able to contain the Kansas City offense enough to hold onto a win.
Kansas City 23, Miami 14
