Chiefs vs Rams Odds – CJ’s Take
This game was originally scheduled as a showcase taking place south of the border. But the field at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City was determined to be unacceptable to the NFL after fielding many complaints about it. So the game was shifted to the Coliseum, which wasn’t too inconvenient since, officially, it was listed as a Rams home game.
We’ll see some offense; these are two of the league’s top three in that category, from the standpoint of yards and points per drive. And there will be plenty of star power on display. For the Rams, the primary offensive weapon is Todd Gurley, who is just twelve rushing yards away from the 1000-yard mark, and has also added 402 yards in receptions. On the Chiefs’ side, Patrick Mahomes has taken the NFL by storm as a first year starter at quarterback; he has thrown for 31 touchdowns and 3150 yards, which, projected over the full season, would land him just short of 50 TD passes and a little over 5000 yards. Naturally, both of these players are legitimate MVP candidates.
There are a few reasons we might gravitate toward the Chiefs here.
One is that they have been consistently better inside their opponents’ 20-yard line, ranking third in points scored per red zone trip, compared to 19th for the Rams. And we also take note that the crafty receiver, Cooper Kupp, who had 566 yards (not an insignificant number) tore up hisknee and is out for the year.
We reaily admit that the Chiefs’ defense may not be all that well-equipped to corral Gurley, as they have given up 5.1 yards per carry for the season. But the Rams aren’t any better; in fact, from at least one angle they’re worse, as they have surrendered 5.2 yards per rushing attempt. Don’t forget that the Chiefs have Kareem Hunt (754 yards), who led the NFL in rushing last year as a rookie.
From another front, we take a look at some of those players the Rams added in the off-season, namely cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. That hasn’t worked out as well as head coach Sean McVay had hoped. Talib suffered an ankle injury and is out of action. And Peters has been a severe disappointment, grading out extremely badly and being the nearest defender to more touchdown passes than anyone else. We say this because it’s going to take a heck of an effort to keep Tyreek Hill under control. Hill has 891 yards and nine touchdowns and he is going to be the fastest player on just about any football field. You often hear the cliche that a guy can score from just about anywhere, but with this guy it’s absolutely true.
Kansas City’s defense is 30th in the NFL in yards per drive allowed, but they’ve gotten safety Daniel Sorenson and linebacker Justin Houston back from injury, and there is even a chance that future Hall of Famer Eric Berry, who hasn’t played so far, could return from his heel injury. The Chiefs have yielded just 36.4% on third down, just 5.1 yards per play in the last three games, and only 68 points over the last four games. True, they haven’t faced explosive teams in those games, but it represents progress.
Under the circumstances, we can take the points.
