With Rodgers missing Sunday’s game, the odds moved significantly in favor of the Chiefs for the win. Kansas City is coming off a small win last week when they beat the Giants 20-17 on Monday night. The Chiefs are not the same team we’ve grown used to seeing during their deep playoff runs of the past three years as they struggle to stay in the playoff image. Mahomes, for example, leads the NFL with 10 interceptions thrown so far.
