Week 5 NFL Picks: Chiefs Fans Making Too Much Of Indy Game?

Pro Football Talk's Gregg Rosenthal has made his Week 5 NFL picks and goes with the Indianapolis Colts over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Interesting note: Rosenthal says Chiefs fans are making too much of this game.

Rosenthal's take: Chiefs fans are making too much out of this game. It's not a litmus test for the rest of the season. It's Week Five. There aren't many teams that could go into Lucas Oil Stadium and win against an angry Peyton Manning. I'm most interested to see how Kansas City's young secondary holds up. They have potential to carry this team, because Matt Cassel isn't going to. A mismatch in special teams should keep the Chiefs close, but they will only get a moral victory here.

I'd agree that I'm very interested in the Chiefs secondary against the league's best. We'll see if the Chiefs are what they think they are in that position.

He goes with 27-21 in favor of the Colts.
