I see the Falcons tightening up their defense and not committing as many penalties as they did against the New York Jets. Against the Jets, the Falcons looked sloppy and unprepared for an NFL opponent. Atlanta will appreciate the six days the team has to get ready for the dangerous Kansas City Chiefs.
If the Chiefs allow second-year passer Patrick Mahomes to play for more than half of the game, I’d expect the Chiefs to get the win over the Falcons. While Mahomes does have limited snaps against another NFL team, he is still a second-year player and is versed in Andy Reid’s offensive system.
However, if the Falcons second and third team offenses can move the ball, I could see the Falcons getting the win.
More likely than not, the Kansas City Chiefs will pick up a win on the road.
Final Score: Kansas City Chiefs 24, Atlanta Falcons 17
