The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to travel to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a week ten matchup. The Jaguars come into the game with a 3-6 record and currently sit in third place in the AFC South. On the flip side, the Chiefs enter the contest with a 6-2 record and currently hold a one game lead for first place in a highly competitive AFC West division. The Jaguars are coming into this game as heavy underdogs and they will have to play an almost perfect game to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Despite this, Jacksonville looked good in their game last week against the Raiders and they may shock a few people this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars Look to Potentially Pull Off One of the Biggest Upsets of the Year
As previously mentioned the Jaguars looked like they finally had everyone on the same page last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jacksonville finished the game winning by a final score of 27-20. Although the Raiders have been one of the most disappointing teams in the league this season, wins have been hard to come by this year for the Jags. With running back Travis Etienne stepping up in recent weeks, the Jaguars’ offense could make some big plays against the Chiefs, however, it will be very difficult to keep up with the Kansas City offense for the entirety of the game.
Although they are outmatched on both sides of the ball, if the Jaguars can come out of the gates hot early, they may be able to hand the Chiefs their third loss of the season. They will have to completely eliminate elite weapons like Travis Kelce from the game if they hope to pull off what will be the upset of the season if it happens.
Kansas City Chiefs Hope to Continue to Hold Onto First Place Spot In AFC West
This week should be a very relaxing one for the Kansas City Chiefs. They are coming off of a disappointing performance against the Tennessee Titans in which they were able to narrowly escape with a 20-17 victory. The Titans did an incredible job of slowing down the Chiefs, however, it is highly unlikely that Kansas City’s offense will underperform two weeks in a row. Along with this, they are up against a much worse defense this week.
As long as they show up ready to play, there is no reason as to why the Chiefs will not be able to rest their players for a majority of the second half. Jacksonville’s offense has struggled through the first half of the season and Kansas City has done a quality job of keeping opponents out of the end zone for a majority of their games. If they can keep Lawrence from having a breakout game and Etienne from being an X-factor, they should have no trouble keeping the Jaguars off of the board.
