Buccaneers over Packers
There is one main question that will determine the outcome of this game. Was Rodgers’ poor performance against Tampa Bay in week 6 a fluke, or was it a result of their defense having his number? If it was a fluke Green Bay should have no problems winning, but if it wasn’t then it will be Tampa Bay who will have no problem winning. I’m a big believer in history, so I’ll lean towards Tampa Bay having his number (especially with Bakhtiari out) and go with them.
Chiefs over Bills
You can call me a homer all you want, but I’d probably pick the Chiefs even if Henne was starting. People have forgotten that Reid is known for making something out of nothing when it comes to the quarterback position, and the Chiefs still have a very talented team, not counting Mahomes.
With Mahomes likely playing the Chiefs are the obvious pick. They beat the Bills fairly comfortably earlier in the season in Buffalo, and with essentially 2 weeks off it’s virtually a guarantee that Reid and Co have already done homework on them. On top of that it looks possible (likely?) that Watkins will play, which would give the Chiefs an even bigger edge over their previous matchup.
