Bucs vs. Chiefs preview:
Kansas City is at it again. Last season, the Chiefs were 1-5, and then reeled off 10 straight wins to get themselves into the playoffs. Now, the Chiefs have reeled off five straight wins to sit at 7-2 on the season, good enough to be tied at the top of the AFC West. After coming back from a 17-0 deficit, the Chiefs host a Buccaneers team that dominated the Bears last week.
The Bucs continue to struggle to find any consistency this season, after dropping two in a row against the Falcons and Oakland Raiders. After finding a win against Chicago last weekend, the Bucs moved up into a tie for second place in the NFC South.
The Bucs and Chiefs have played each other 11 times, with the Bucs holding a 6-5 advantage.
Bucs vs. Chiefs prediction:
The Chiefs are the model of consistency in the NFL. Kind of. After reeling off ten straight wins last year to make the playoffs, Kansas City is back at it again.
The Bucs need a win here to keep their playoff hopes alive. Tampa Bay’s offense is good, and Mike Evans is a beast, but the Chiefs have a solid secondary which can contain him.
Kansas City will extend its streak to six in a close game.
