No team is a bigger favorite heading into Week 5 than the Kansas City Chiefs.
Yes, the Chiefs are huge favorites over the Chicago Bears, who visit Arrowhead Stadium in Week 5. One outlet has the Chiefs as an 11-point favorite, which is a big line in the NFL. A few others have the Chiefs as 10-point favorites. It marks the biggest line in Week 5 (so far - not all the lines are posted).
The Chiefs were only a 4-point underdog agains the unbeaten Bengals so clearly some folks believe they're better than their 1-3 record indicates.
This Bears game will be a good test for the Chiefs. If they win, it shows they can still beat bad teams which is enough to be flirting with .500 and a playoff berth if things go well (yes, even after a 1-3 start). If they lose, it shows the Chiefs problems are probably worse than we thought. It would be incredibly deflating to see them lose to Chicago.
The Chiefs are 1-3. The road back to respectability begins Sunday against Chicago.
