NFL Picks, Week 14: Jets Favored Over Chiefs By Every ESPN Analyst

No one is buying on the Kansas City Chiefs for yet another week, but this was predicted when a losing team faces a schedule that features the Patriots, Steelers, Bears, Jets and Packers. This week is the New York Jets’ week and it’s clear that everyone believes that Rex Ryan’s team will be just fine at home against the visiting Chiefs.

The Chiefs defense has been very successful in this run, keeping the Chiefs close in the first half against the Patriots and the entire game against the Steelers. They finally beat the Bears last week so it’s possible the Jets will fall prey to Brandon Flowers, Tamba Hali and company. Yet it’s also clear the Chiefs offense has no idea how to jumpstart itself since last week it took a Hail Mary pass to win the game.

ESPN’s expert panel has the Jets winning this afternoon and it’s hard to fault them at this point. It’s definitely an upset if the Chiefs win today, but it’s also clear that the Chiefs are showing more grit each and every week. For those paying close attention, they might not be that surprised if the Chiefs are able to win a close defensive battle.
