NFL Week 3 picks and predictions are starting to roll in for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Kansas City Chiefs have started the season 2-0 and are facing the 0-2 San Francisco 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium.
The 49ers are favored to win the game but the Chiefs have been somehow, someway finding ways to win games recently so it should be an interesting matchup.
Picked the Chiefs to win:
ESPN: Eric Allen and Chris Mortensen
Yahoo!: Les Carpenter and Michael Silver
CBS Sports: Clark Judge and Will Brinson
NFL Network: Shannon Sharpe and Joe Theismann
FOX Sports: Peter Schrager
How about the job Romeo Crennel has done in K.C. this year? Through two weeks, the Chiefs defense — ranked 30th in the league in 2009 — has given up an average of just 14 points and has already scored one game-winning touchdown. Oh Romeo, my Romeo! San Francisco is coming off a short week, traveling to Kansas City just six days after getting its heart broken in a Monday night thriller with the Saints. All the team meetings, terse radio interviews and evil glares from Mike Singletary have netted zero wins for the Niners so far. Gimme Todd Haley — a guy who was criticized for his coaching style last year — and the upstart Chiefs in this one. A former Mr. Irrelevant, kicker Ryan Succop, hits a game-winner in the closing seconds.
Picked the 49ers to win:
ESPN: Mike Golic, Merrill Hoge, Ron Jaworski, Adam Schefter, Mark Schlereth and Seth Wickersham.
