Chiefs vs Patriots: NFL Week 4 Monday Night Football Prediction

Despite sluggish start Patriots own AFC East lead

It seems that some things never change – including Tom Brady & Crew owing the the AFC East division. Winners of two straight, New England looks to move to 3-1 on the young NFL season. It hasn’t been all peaches and gravy though as the Patriots barely beat the Raiders last week – scoring just 16 points in the process. One thing that has changed is the New England defense as they rank first defending the pass and 12th at stopping the run. Brady & Co. need to get their sluggish offense in gear as the Patriots rank 27th passing and 22nd rushing. Look for the Pats defense to continue to shine in this contest tonight.

Chiefs are looking to build on momentum gained by mauling Miami

After dropping their home opener to Tennessee and their Week 2 contest in Denver, Kansas City cranked it up last weekend as the Chiefs demolished the Dolphins 34-15 in South Beach. That win masks the fact that KC has won just three times over their last eleven games – including their 45-44 playoff meltdown versus the Colts last season. The Chiefs should get a boost on offense as stud RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is listed as probable after he sat out last weekend. Backup RB Knile Davis certainly filled in nicely for Charles as he gained 132 yards on 32 carries with one TD. We aren’t buying what the Chiefs are selling just yet though.

NFL Week 4 Prediction: While they haven’t showed it in all phases of their game yet – the Patriots are the better team here. This contest being a Pats road game is a mild concern, especially since we have to give up points, but we can’t move past the fact that New England has really cranked it up on defense. We fully expect that the offense will follow suit at some point. We are laying the -3 (-115) price posted on the betting board at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook and backing New England with a 230 unit wager here.
