The New York Jets are traveling to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs on Sunday for Week 8 football. The game starts at 1:00PM ET inside Arrowhead Stadium, and will be televised on CBS. The sun will be out, but it will be a little cold at 50 degrees fahrenheit.
The two teams have met 39 times in history, and Sunday’s game is a tie breaker as the series is tied at 19-19-1.
The Jets are atrocious right now, but they won 38-31 when the teams last met in December of 2017. New York has actually won 4 of the past 6 meetings between the two teams.
New York Jets Betting Preview: Can the Jets Finally Get a Win?
The Jets are currently 0-7 on the season, the only team in the NFL without a win. As expected with a winless team, there are tons of questions surrounding NYJ, not only with the status of head coach Adam Gase, but the fact that QB Sam Darnold looks like a draft-day miss. .
The Jets’ defense is allowing 29 points per game, which doesn’t do the offense any good when they’re only putting up 12 points per game. New York’s 290 yards per game on offense is unimpressive, their 187 yards passing per game is terrible, and the Jets allow nearly 400 yards a game to the opposition.
Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview: Will the Chiefs Notch their 7th Win?
New York and Kansas City are on completely different trajectories this season. The Chiefs are 6-1 on the year, but are already starting to run away with the AFC West as the Raiders are in second place at just 3-3.
KC’s 31.1 points per game is the 5th-highest in the NFL, and they average more than 400 yards per game. The Chiefs do give up 20.4 ppg on defense, but the Jets are going to have a hard time reaching that number.
Patrick Mahomes continues to be his spectacular self, with 1,899 yards, 16 touchdowns, and just one interception this season. Expect to see Le’Veon Bell continue to find his role in this offense, which only makes Kansas City a more versatile and potent offense each time they take the field.

Free Betting Pick
I’m not sure if anyone expects the New York Jets to have a chance here, but we all know anything is possible. Personally, I’m still waiting for Sam Darnold to show his leadership, but he’s falling behind the curtains just like everyone else.
Since I don’t see Darnold stepping up for this team, especially while battling through a shoulder injury, it’s looking like another solid outing for the Chiefs. I expect a huge offensive performance from this Kansas City offense.
Final Score 41-9, Kansas City Chiefs.
