Why Carolina Panthers Will Win
The main man is back. Christian McCaffrey might not be fully back to norm, but at least Carolina has its star to try to pull this season out of its nosedive after three straight losses.
The offense hasn’t been all that bad on the ground without him, but with a guy to finally be the focus, Teddy Bridgewater can take more big shots. Carolina hasn’t hit 200 passing yards in two of the last three games after rolling over the first six games.
Why Kansas City Chiefs Will Win
Kansas City is known for its explosion and its ability to work in a variety of parts, but Carolina allows teams to crank up a whole slew of plays with a run defense that gets hammered for well over 100 yards per game.

Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City
Edwards-Helaire’s usage has gone down significantly since the Le’Veon Bell signing, averaging a depressing seven carries in the past two games.

What’s Going To Happen
It’s not going to be the normal high-flying fun show from the Chiefs. Run, run some more, and force Carolina to press. Do that, and the KC D will come up with enough takeaways to turn a tight game into a second half blowout.
