The story so far

The Chiefs put in a professional performance in Cleveland last week to take them to 8-1 and continue to lead the AFC, the Chiefs will be looking for another win and professional performance against the lowest scoring team in the NFC before they go head to head with the 8-1 rams next week in Mexico.

The cardinals are having a torrid season, they are 2-6 but are coming into this off a bye week.

One to watch 

Josh Rosen

The rookie quarterback was giving his chance in week 4 after Sam Bradford was benched and eventually cut by the Cardinals.

He’s 2-3 in his first 5 starts getting the Cardinals both of there wins this season.

Key matchup

Patrick Peterson v Tyreek Hill

Mahomes is not afraid to challenge the NFL’s top cornerbacks so expect him to throw in Peterson’s direction a lot.

On his day Hill can beat anybody but Peterson has the ability to keep Hill quiet so this will be one to watch.

Injuries

What they said 

 Steve Wilks understands there is only so much a defense can do to contain Mahomes and Co.

“I don’t think you can stop those guys completely,” Wilks said. “You’ve just got to hope you can slow them down.”

What we said

“They have Patrick Peterson at corner,” Mahomes said. “They got dudes everywhere on that defense. For me it’s going to be a great test to get to go up against these guys. We’re going to try to be ourselves and keep what we have going, going.”

Odds 

Chiefs 1/14

Cardinals 8/1
