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?
