The Sporting News isn't just predicting that the New England Patriots will beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football during week 11 in the NFL. They also say it's the safest bet of the week. That's even more depressing for Chiefs fans who've already endured much suffering this season due to unpredictable performances and numerous injuries amidst a very winnable division in the AFC West.
"The Eagles let us down big-time last week, so we'll go a little "safer" this week," says Vinnie Iyer. "The Patriots won't need to face injured ex-Pat Matt Cassel at home on Monday night, and Bill Belichick should be ready to cook up some defensive confusion for Tyler Palko. In Week 10, the Chiefs lost to Denver despite giving up only two pass completions. They can expect Tom Brady to do a lot more damage through the air against their secondary this week."
