Two sides of the coin will face each other in week 15 of the NFL, as the New England Patriots, who are in full recovery, will host the Kansas City Chiefs, leaders of the Western Division of the American Conference.
The Patriots are coming off a 21-18 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, confirming their status as a team that will play the role of judge at the end of the regular season.
On the other hand, Kansas was surprisingly defeated 20-17 by the Buffalo Bills, thus losing its second consecutive game.
When: Sunday, December 17 at 1:00 pm ET in Gillette Stadium
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on the New England Patriots?
The New England Patriots aren’t made to fight for a postseason berth, as they are still developing their talent for the coming years.
In their last game, they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-18 on an inspired night from quarterback Bailey Zappe, who contributed 19 of 28 passes, 240 yards, three touchdown assists, and only one interception. He got the opportunity to play for Mac Jones, who has not had good numbers this season, as he has more interceptions (12) than touchdown passes (10).
In the victory over the Steelers, the role of Hunter Henry, who scored twice, should also be highlighted. Ezekiel Elliott scored once.
With their 3-10 record, the New England team has no aspirations, something that has become common since the departure of Tom Brady. However, they will have the honor of being the judge of several teams, such as the Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets.
The only player on the injured list is Tyrone Wheatley Jr., while Shaun Wade, Rhamondre Stevenson, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, and Kayshon Bouttle are questionable.
Why Bet on the Kansas City Chiefs?
A small negative streak of two losses is generating some concern in the Kansas City Chiefs, who no longer have as much distance to their pursuer in the Western Division of the American Conference.
The Chiefs are coming off a 20-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, a win that was not in anyone’s plans since the game was in Kansas. Patrick Mahomes finished 25 of 43 passing, 271 yards passing, one touchdown pass, and one interception. It was not the best of performances for the league’s most important player.
With this setback, the Chiefs remain with a record of 8-5, while their chaser, the Denver Broncos, has a record of 7-6. Another loss could jeopardize Mahomes’ team’s first place.
Fortunately, the schedule is smiling on Kansas City, as they have low-difficulty opponents such as the Patriots, Raiders, and Chargers. Qualification is a must for a repeat Super Bowl title attempt.
The players listed as questionable for this franchise are Drue Tranquill, Donovan Smith, and Isiah Pacheco.
