settling down a little aft Antworten

The Las Vegas over/unders for the 2019 season are out."Many Las Vegas bookmakers released their NFL over/unders for the 2019 season on Friday. The Kansas City Chiefs are currently listed at 10.5 wins (courtesy of CG Sportsbooks) Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , up from 7.5 wins ahead of 2018. Only one team, the New England Patriots, has a higher over/under number.Other notable year-by-year differences I found interesting were the Chicago Bears (6.5 to 9.5), the Cleveland Browns (4.5 to 9), the Indianapolis Colts (6.5 to 9.5) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (10.5 to 9).Going off of 10.5 wins, the question becomes, Will the Chiefs get to 11 in 2019? I compiled some reasons as to why or why not.Why the Chiefs will win 11 gamesSince Andy Reid took over for the 2013 season, the Chiefs have averaged 10.8 wins per season, including three seasons of 11 or more wins over the last four. During two of those 11-plus-win seasons, Alex Smith was the starting quarterback. Now Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , it’s Patrick Mahomes’ team, and if the reigning MVP’s name alone doesn’t provide enough confidence, his supporting cast—Travis Kelce, (probably) Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins—should all be back healthy and ready to do it all over again. When people think of the Chiefs, they think of an elite offense with a lousy defense, but there is an argument to be made that the defense could be better in 2019: First, it couldn’t really be much worse, right? And second, the Chiefs changed defensive coordinators, assistant coaches and scheme. The returners may be better thanks to the in-house change of scenery. I also love the Tyrann Mathieu signing. If the defense can get to average , 11 wins could be low for Mahomes.Why the Chiefs will win less than 11 gamesI think we can all agree that Mahomes’ numbers in 2019 were silly. 50 touchdowns and more than 5,000 yards. I think we can also agree that although he’s no doubt arrived, the chances of repeating such wildly strong numbers are slim (throwing for 50 touchdowns only happened twice before 2018). Mahomes is now without both running back Kareem Hunt and center Mitch Morse, and questions still surround Hill, with the team saying it hasn’t spoken to him. Also, the Chiefs’ defense finished No. 31 in yards per game in 2019. Now without Eric Berry, Dee Ford and Justin Houston, three of its most important players, how could it possibly improve, even with the change in defensive coordinator? Andy Reid has never finished with less than nine wins since coming to the Chiefs Womens Harrison Butker Jersey , but 11 wins, especially given the Chiefs’ schedule—they see the Bears, Colts and Patriots in addition to an improving AFC West—is a tall order.What do you think?Week 6 pundit power rankings: Rams and Chiefs still on top For the second straight week, the pundits we’re tracking agree unanimously: the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are 1-2 at the top of the NFL.I must say I’m a little surprised.Last week, the way the pundits were talking about the upcoming Chiefs game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, I thought a Chiefs victory might convince at least some of them to move the Chiefs up a notch.You have to wonder if they’d have an entirely different view if Patrick Mahomes had thrown a touchdown pass or two.So as Bill Belichick himself might say... we’re on to New England.Pundit Power Rankings for Week 6Chiefs AFC West Teams Other AFC TeamsHere's what the pundits we're tracking said about the Chiefs this week:ESPN (2nd from 2nd)MMQB (2nd from 2nd) (Elliot Harrison - 2nd from 2nd)SBNation (Rebecca Toback - 2nd from 2nd)Sporting News (Vinnie Iyer - 2nd from 2nd)Yahoo! Sports (Frank Schwab - 2nd from 2nd)CBS Sports (Pete Prisco - 2nd from 2nd)USA Today (Nate Davis - 2nd from 2nd)Other power rankings we noticed this week:NBC Sports (Cam Ellis — 2nd from 4th) It was Mahomes’ worst game and the Chiefs’ best. Dismantling the Jaguars defense like that was eye-opening.Washington Post (Mark Maske — 2nd from 2nd) Patrick Mahomes finally threw an interception this season (and then another) but the Chiefs offense just kept going against Jacksonville’s celebrated defense. A second straight difficult test looms with this Sunday night’s game at New England.NESN (Joshua Schrek — 1st from 2nd) Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City’s high-powered offense rolled over one Super Bowl contender in Week 5 (the Jacksonville Jaguars) and now head to Foxboro to try to cement their claim as the AFC’s best team in a battle with the Patriots. Bleeding Green Nation (Brandon Lee Gowton — 1st from 1st) Andy Reid’s team continues to look (Joe Giglio — 2nd from 2nd) This team scored 30 points even on a down day (by his standards) for Patrick Mahomes.Chicago Tribune (Brad Biggs — 2nd from 2nd) For once the defense was the story of the day as the Chiefs picked off Blake Bortles four times, sacked him five times and forced a fumble in a blowout win.Things are settling down a little after five weeks of the season.They pundits like the Cleveland Browns more and more — a three-point win against the Ravens moved them up six spots in the aggregated rankings, which was the biggest jump of the week.The Texans rose five spots after narrowly winning the Battle of Texas against the Cowboys on Sunday.The Denver Broncos had the biggest fall in the rankings, dropping six positions after losing to the New York Jets.(A special shout-out here to CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco, who very satisfyingly dropped Denver 12 places).Speaking of AFC West teams Daniel Sorensen Jersey , we haven’t yet mentioned the Oakland Raiders in our weekly power rankings roundup.And we’re not going to do so today, either.We’ll just let that big 30 in the table speak for itself.Finally, an interesting disagreement this week.Most of the pundits agreed that the Washington Redskins should be dinged after losing to the New Orleans Saints 43-19.But Yahoo! held the Redskins steady, and ESPN’s panel of writers voted Washington up two spots!On Wednesday — as always — we’ll collect the data from the number-crunchers, and assemble Arrowhead Pride True Power Rankings for Week 6.Be sure to check it out!
