Welcome to gameday! The Kansas City Chiefs will visit the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9 in rare game for the Chiefs: they’re underdogs. Indeed, the NFL odds on the game say the Chiefs are 2.5-point underdogs in the game. The Chiefs are 6-2 on the season while the Cowboys are 4-3 and they’ll have Ezekiel Elliott for this game as he is now not suspended for the game.
The Chiefs are looking to head into their bye week next week on a high note. They don’t need this win as much as the Cowboys do as they have a strong lead in the AFC West but they’re still fighting for the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the playoffs.
The Chiefs say that WR Albert Wilson and LB Dee Ford are out and will not play in this game. LB Justin Houston is questionable but we’re thinking he will play. The Chiefs are healthy other than that and should see the return of G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.
Meanwhile in Dallas the Cowboys are happy to have Elliott back for this game, which came as a surprise. He wasn’t expected to play until Friday when whatever legal move happened ended up helping him and so now he can play.
The other part of this game to watch out for: Tony Romo’s first time calling the Cowboys.
