Welcome to game day! The Kansas City Chiefs will host the New York Jets in Week 3 of the 2016 NFL schedule. The Chiefs and Jets are both 1-1 on the season but they’re two different teams.

The Chiefs will be without Jamaal Charles, who is listed as doubtful. There was hope that this would be the week for Jamaal, who is coming off a torn ACL last year, but Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West have been doing a respectable job in the running game without him.

In other big injury reports, Jets WR Brandon Marshall is reportedly planning to play, which is big news.

The Jets looked impressive beating the Buffalo Bills last week on Thursday Night Football so they come in with plenty of time to rest and prepare. The Chiefs are 1-1 after a franchise record comeback against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1 and a weak game against the Houston Texans in Week 2.

Who are these Chiefs? Are they the type that turned it on when their backs were against the wall in Week 1? Or are they the team that couldn’t beat the Texans even though Houston wasn’t playing very well?

The Chiefs will find out quick about their offense against the Jets, who sport one of the league’s top defensive lines. Leonard Williams, Sheldon Richardson, Muhammad Wilkerson ... they have a lot of first round picks on that line. They’re a tough group and the Chiefs will be down two guards. This is a key matchup.

I am hesitantly predicting a Chiefs win: 26-24. The Jets are legit though. They’re a good team with Ryan Fitzpatrick and those receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
