NFL Week 3 early odds: Chiefs open as rare underdog, 0-2 Falcons favored to beat an undefeated team | CBSSports

In the early odds for Week 3, the Ravens have opened as a three-point favorite at William Hill Sportsbook, marking just the seventh time that the Chiefs have been an underdog in a regular season game with Mahomes as their starter. Of course, most of those games came early in Mahomes’ career when oddsmakers just weren’t sure how good he was. Of the six previous games, five of them came during the first 11 weeks of the 2018 season and one of them came in the 2017 regular season finale, which was the first start of Mahomes’ career. 

Chiefs HC Andy Reid anticipates DT Mike Pennel’s return for Week 3 | ChiefsWire

Defensive tackle Mike Pennel is eligible to return from his two-game suspension following “Monday Night Football” between the Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints. Chiefs HC Andy Reid anticipates that Pennel will be back and ready to play come the team’s Week 3 game on “Monday Night Football” against the Baltimore Ravens. “Yeah, so there’s a chance he’s ready to go,” Reid told reporters on Monday. “I’ll let Veach do that part, but there’s a good chance that he’s up.”

Chiefs vs. Chargers: Kelce, Butker earn high player grades | AA

[MVP] Dude is cold. I mean ice cold. I mean Antarctica-in-the-winter cold. Not only did he hit a 58-yard kick earlier in the game, but he nailed another 58-yarder down the pipe to win it. It was made more impressive that he hit a 53-yard attempt, was backed up after a holding penalty, and then drilled one from five yards further only to have a timeout called. From there, he makes a 58-yarder like it was nothing.

I have never been so comfortable with a kick to win a game in my entire life and it was from 58 yards. Almost surprised Butker didn’t ask for a delay of game just to make it over 60. Tony Romo had the best analogy calling him Mariano Rivera, and I think that was the best way to describe it. When he took the field, you just had a feeling the game was over and the Chiefs were going home victorious. Harrison Butker, here’s to you. Next: What we learned about the

It’s okay for the KC Chiefs to have a bad game every now and then | KCK

What makes the Kansas City Chiefs different from almost every team in the league is that despite them playing absolutely terrible for 3 quarters, they still forced overtime and won the game! Any Chiefs team prior to 2019 doesn’t come back and win that game, but the Super Bowl win showed them they can come back from just about any deficit and they did just that on Sunday.

KC Chiefs might have to deal with Justin Herbert for a long time | KCK

Herbert impressed right away, leading the Chargers offense down the field and finishing off the drive with a 4-yard run into the end zone. He finished his NFL debut going 22 of 33 for 311 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception while getting sacked twice.

Yes, Herbert made some rookie mistakes, but he was much better than Tyrod Taylor was and with him playing so well in his debut, the Chargers would be crazy not to continue starting him. He proved he’s ready to handle the pressure.

Patrick Mahomes has won a record six straight games when trailing by double digits | PFT

With Mahomes at quarterback, the Chiefs have now won six consecutive games when trailing by 10 points or more, which is an NFL record for a quarterback, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. That includes the Chiefs’ overtime win over the Chargers on Sunday, when they were trailing 17-6 midway through the third quarter before Mahomes led them back. It also includes the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win over the 49ers, when they were trailing 20-10 at the start of the fourth quarter but won 31-20. Prior to that the Chiefs trailed 10-0 in the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game but came back to win, and trailed 24-0 in the divisional round of the playoffs before coming back to win.

Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill show off ‘special connection’ on ‘spectacular throw’ | ESPN.com

“That was a spectacular throw, and for [Hill] to make that grab, that was a great catch,” Reid said. “Those two have a special connection between them. We keep seeing it week after week, year after year here. It’s time-tested.”

“Pat — I feel like — is in a lane of his own,” Hill said. “Pat [and] probably Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson [could make that throw]. With me being fast and Pat having the arm strength and the accuracy, just to trust you to even throw that is just amazing to me.

I really enjoyed this.

Just as a reminder, the Chiefs had similar injuries last year and we won a super bowl and Miller only had 9 sacks last year. My point is that the Donkeys looked like they built something nice but they built it on a shitty foundation. They filled a bunch of holes with draft picks and FAs this year but they have no depth and didnt address some of their biggest flaws. Their biggest being Fangio.

Their flaws are ranked from worst to most benign. It was posted accidentally as an organization chart.

The Herbert hype feels overblown. The NFL has a long history of rookie QB’s that look great in their first start. As soon as the league gets some tape on him, we’ll see how he fares. The Chargers game felt like they were trying to shake us by starting a different QB. They won’t get that chance again.

It’s hilarious because no one is calling for slowing down the hype like they still like to do with Pat (though that’s getting less and less these days)

Going into the season wasn’t too concerned with the ravens even though they have a very good QB. The bolts was one game but certainly revealed we have problems. Don’t buy into the looking past them at the ravens, trap games are just an excuse for bad performances. We are gonna have our hands full on Monday.

Yes, Herbert made some rookie mistakes, but he was much better than Tyrod Taylor was and with him playing so well in his debut, the Chargers would be crazy not to continue starting him. He proved he’s ready to handle the pressure.

I call BS on that statement. There’s an argument to be had over whether a QB is better served with a “redshirt” year or by playing right away, but there’s no question that one game against a generally sub-par and depleted Chiefs defense (especially the CBs…eeesh) isn’t some “[proof] he’s ready to handle the pressure.” Give him several games against a solid defense where the opposing team has prepared for him all week, and I suspect you’ll have a better indication on his readiness to play at the NFL level.

Tyrod Taylor is a back up qb. He should be moved back to his natural position.

Reminder: Butker is contracted for 5 years $20 million.

If he was a free agent I’d be willing to pay him double that to keep him.

Main concern right now is OL, and while that can be corrected time’s an issue. Also…

I’m not overly concerned with OL.
1. LAC have a very good pass rush.
2. Schwartz had an unusually bad game (I think?). He’ll be better.
3. They should get better as the season goes on.

Maybe depth could be a worry though?

Shitty luck catching the chargers before Bosa gets hurt for the season. We’ll look better next time.
