The 3-3 Kansas City Chiefs face off against the 2-4 St. Louis Rams on Sunday at 12 p.m. inside the hallowed walls of Arrowhead Stadium. Donovan McNabb, who was spotted at Chiefs practice this week, will be making his debut as a broadcaster on a live NFL regular season game. The game will be played on FOX.
The Chiefs are hoping to continue their rebound after a difficult schedule to start the season. The Rams, meanwhile, are trying to stay alive after losing their starting quarterback Sam Bradford and replacing him with Austin Davis, who has surprisingly done well.
The Chiefs come in a six-point favorite so clearly Chiefs fans and those in Kansas City are expecting a win. The Chiefs lost their Week 1 game to the Tennessee Titans but ever since then they have looked really sharp. They lost by a touchdown to the Denver Broncos, which doesn't look like such a bad loss now considering the way the Broncos are crushing teams lately. The Chiefs also lost to the San Francisco 49ers by five points, which there's no shame in given the 49ers track record. The Chiefs beat the previously 5-1 San Diego Chargers and the now 5-2 New England Patriots so there are a couple of good wins on their schedule, too.
The Chiefs are playing in arguably the toughest division in football so they need wins against teams like the Rams to keep their playoff hopes alive. That said, the Rams are no pushover. The Chiefs will face a lot worse defenses than the Rams this season. Kansas City will hope to avoid their pass rushers (which haven't been so hot this season) while getting a leg up on special teams, which is always a key against Jeff Fisher-coached teams.
