Things To Look For

Who would have thought that the Kansas City Chiefs would now be hanging on for dear life in the AFC West after a 5-0 start? Andy Reid’s team is struggling on offense and the defense isn’t getting those takeaways that they thrived on in both 2016 and ’17. The New York Jets’ ground game could get healthy here and quarterback Josh McCown has had his ups and downs. It would not be a shock if the Chiefs’ misery continued.
