The woeful Chiefs welcome the Indianapolis Colts to Arrowhead Stadium today as they take aim at just their second home win of the season. Start time in this afternoon’s clash between KC and Indy is set at 1:00pm ET; the game will be televised live on CBS. NFL Sunday Indianapolis Colts vs Kansas City Chiefs Odds have Andrew Luck and company listed as -7 against the spread road favorites; the game total is set at 41.5 points.
While Kansas City has some competition for the title of league’s worst team, it may have put a stake in the debate with last weekend’s showing at Oakland. The Chiefs, fresh off a 30-7 whipping in Cleveland, got blanked 15-0 by their arch rivals.
Kansas City’s dreadful offense, which has scored fewer than nine points in four of the last five games, managed all of seven first downs and 119 total yards against the league’s 25th ranked defense. If General Manager Scott Pioli and Head Coach Romeo Crennel were not thinking about unemployment prior to the Chiefs trip to Oakland, they most certainly are after it.
The Colts, who fell to 9-5 with last week’s 29-17 loss at Houston, presently own the fifth seed in the AFC overall standings and they can all but guarantee a playoff spot with a win over Kansas City.
Despite its record, there are a number of pundits down on Indianapolis, contending its success this season is mostly of the smoke and mirrors variety. That may be the case, the Colts have been outscored by 49 points this year, but they will not need any sort of magic to get past the Chiefs.
Kansas City’s offense would have difficulty finding the end zone against most high school teams. When a team cannot score, losing and failing to cover often go hand in hand.
Free Pick: Take the Colts -7. Ten of KC’s 12 losses this season came by eight or more points.
