Going back to this past Friday (October 11, 2019), about a week’s worth of work was postponed, due most likely to the skipping of the weekly reset of our router. And for that, I personally apologize.
Usually, I would have had all my weekly NFL picks by now, but the aforementioned recent lagging connection in updating this site and my commitment to other projects caused a stoppage in that. And with that being, I’ll give you all a quick hitter, as today is the first day of Week 7 for the 2019 NFL season.
The week starts off with AFC West rivals, as the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in the Mile High City.
The game is a matchup of two teams going in complete opposite directions, with the Chiefs losing back-to-back weeks at Arrowhead Stadium against the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans, while the Broncos have won two in a row following a dismal 0-4 start.
The purge of the defensive side of the ball (releasing Eric Berry and Justin Houston, trading Dee Ford) this past off-season and the recent absence of Chris Jones has gradually made the Chiefs’ defensive unit worse than they were last season. Especially in the sack department, as they racked up ZERO combined sacks of Jacoby Brissett and Deshaun Watson. Plus, they have allowed a 100-yard rusher in four consecutive games. Look for Phillip Lindsay to make it five consecutive games, and look for the Broncos to snap a four-game home losing streak against a Chiefs team that is traveling on a short week.
