Chiefs-Cardinals preseason predictions: First team offense vs. first team defense

Let's get our predictions in for the Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals preseason game on Saturday night. You can predict the score with our Crowd's Line widget below and we can see how badly Chiefs fans here on Arrowhead Pride think they're going to dominate the Cardinals. And of course the Cardinals fans on Revenge of the Birds probably disagree.

The Chiefs first team offense will get a quarter against the Cardinals. This is a tough, tough defense that was fifth in points allowed last year. The Chiefs offense has been going up against their own very good defense for a while now so it will be useful to get a peek at another defense, especially one as good as the Cardinals.

Offenses are generally behind defenses at this time of year so my prediction for the Chiefs first team offense is ... not much. If they get two possessions, I think they get a field goal out of it. I just think it's too early to think the Chiefs offense can run down the field against one of the NFL's best defenses and score touchdowns.

I could be wrong. I would love to be wrong. What's one prediction you have for this game?
