Britton: Kansas City Chiefs week 2 preview and prediction

Alex Smith was fantastic in the Week 1 win over the New England Patriots.

The Chiefs had a masterful performance in their season opener against the Patriots.

Wentz had just under 20 FanDuel points in Week 1 against the Redskins. Hill finished the game with 7 receptions, 133 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, the Chiefs are averaging 27.0 points and 371.0 total yards (247.0 in passing and 124.0 in rushing).

Kareem Hunt, Running Back - The rookie out of the MAC burst on the scene in a big way.

Carson Wentz was great in his season opener of his second season in the league. His top target was tight end Zach Ertz. Darren Proles added 43 yards in five receptions. Kansas City racked up 537 yards of offense against the Patriots last week, and that should raise plenty of alarms for an Eagles defense that played well against Washington.

LeGarrette Blount has come over to Philadelphia from New England this season. After losing the football on his first career carry, all Hunt did the rest of the night was have a record-setting performance against the Super Bowl champs in their house with 148 rushing yards and a touchdown and 98 receiving yards and two touchdowns. While he won't be out for the entire season like Berry, he will not be playing against the Chiefs, which is a very good sign for the Chiefs offense. If the Chiefs can make openings for Hunt against an effective Eagles run defense while feeding Hill and Kelce, they can then move Hunt on the outside and terrorize the Eagles defense.

It's awesome that the Kansas City Chiefs are going to be the top scoring team after two weeks, but that's exactly what will happen. The final bet for this game is the Kansas City Chiefs -4.5 over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. And if the Eagles can not get a running game in order, the Chiefs should be capable of shutting that down, too, with a solid defensive line led by Allen Bailey, Bennie Logan and Chris Jones.
