It's the 7-5 Kansas City Chiefs and 9-3 Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. The Chiefs are right in the thick of the AFC Wild Card picture and need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. It's not a "must win" game for Kansas City but a "it would be really, really nice if they won" game. Check out the Chiefs playoff picture update here.
The Chiefs opened the week as 1-point underdogs in the game but have now improved to 1-point favorites, according to the NFL odds. The Cardinals, who have the best record in the NFC, are starting Drew Stanton after Carson Palmer was injured. The Chiefs defense is hoping they can take care of Stanton and make the Cardinals, who have the NFL's worst rushing attack, one dimensional. Defensively, Arizona is damn good and there's no sugar coating that the Chiefs offense will probably struggle.
After consecutive losses in primetime, the Chiefs are hoping to go into Arizona and pick up a win to move to 8-5 on the season. I predict they'll do just that.
