Chiefs vs. Panthers 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 four straight wins to sit at 6-2 on the season, good enough for second-place in the AFC West. Now they have to travel to face a Carolina team that seems to be back in contention after a slow start.
After starting off the season with a 1-5 record, the Panthers are slowly returning to their form from last year when they went to the Super Bowl. No, this team is not playing at the same caliber, but Carolina has won two straight, and needs to continue its winning ways if it wants to get back to the playoffs. Cam Newton and the Panthers run game is firing on all cylinders, but gets a stiff Chiefs run defense this weekend.
The Chiefs and Panthers have played each other seven times, with the Chiefs holding a 3-2 advantage.
Chiefs vs. Panthers prediction:
This one is tough to call. The Chiefs are on an impressive win streak, and the Panthers seem to be playing like they did last year, with a stellar defense.
Cam Newton and his ability to escape the pocket will be enough to lift the Panthers in a must-win for Carolina.
