Kansas City is 10-6-1 ATS overall, 7-4-1 ATS after a win, 5-4 ATS at home and 7-6 ATS as a favorite. Patrick Mahomes leads the team in passing with 5,097 yards for 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

The Chiefs are allowing 25.53 points per game which ranks 23rd in the NFL. They are averaging 129.71 rushing yards per game which ranks 27th in the NFL. They are allowing 267.41 passing yards per game which ranks 30th in the NFL.

Prediction

These are two of the top 4 offenses in the NFL, but with the way the weather is projected to be on Sunday in Kansas City with a high of 13 and a low of 5 this will negate some of the offensive production. Both teams are well balanced offenses, but who will get the win?
