The Kansas City Chiefs will hit the road this weekend in search of their first win when they take on the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. Despite both teams sitting at a disappointing 0-2, the Chiefs find themselves as the NFL’s biggest underdogs.
The Saints are currently favored by nine points over the Chiefs, fresh off Kansas City’s back-to-back terrible performances against the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs lost those two games by an average of 17 points, while New Orleans fell to both the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers by eight.
Jamaal Charles missed most of the second half in Sunday’s loss to the Bills with a sore knee and while Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel expects him back for this week, it will be interesting to see if he is able to practice. If Charles is limited at all, there’s no reason the Chiefs-Saints line shouldn’t easily hit double digits.
Crennel’s crew played most of last season as underdogs once things spiraled out of control and if the first two weeks of this season are any indication, they should get used to that sort of treatment from Las Vegas once again.
