The Kansas City Chiefs are the heavy favorites coming into Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins with most experts siding with the Chiefs when making their pre-game predictions. Peter King of Sports Illustrated believes the final score will be 23-10 in favor of the Chiefs and he believes it's the defense that will wreak havoc on the Dolphins offense.
"I'm stunned by Kansas City's resurgence without three of its top five (arguably) players -- Tony Moeaki, Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles," says King. "Judging from the game the other night, the other two Most Important Players are Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson, and I say they'll make life very difficult for the soon-to-be 0-8 Luck contenders."
Johnson won the AFC Defensive Player of the Week just last week and the previous week would have been a possibility as well. Meanwhile, Hali is on fire in getting to the quarterback and caused Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill to commit a multitude of penalties trying to keep him away from Philip Rivers.
