The guys over at 610 Sports always make fun of me in my weekly spot because I always pick the Kansas City Chiefs to win. The homer in me can't help, but at least I admit it.

But even the homer in me can't bring me to pick the KC Chiefs to beat the New Orleans Saints this weekend. For one of only a few times all year, I'm picking against the Chiefs.

I took the Saints over the Chiefs, 35-24.

It pains me to write that but, despite seeing the ways the Chiefs can win, I really don't think they will. Kinda depressing, I know.

The good news -- as if my picks were actually accurate -- is that I've picked the rest of the AFC West to lose as well. All three of the other AFC West teams are in extremely difficult games this weekend.

I suppose another piece of good news is that I have a track record of being wrong lately. So maybe the Chiefs win?

I posted the rest of my picks below. My big upset of the week is the St. Louis Rams beating the Bears in Chicago. See the explanations of all the picks here.
