Jets vs Chiefs Game Thread

It’s week eight of the 2020 NFL season and the New York Jets are visiting the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs come into the game as defending Super Bowl Champions and arguably the best team in the NFL. They are relatively healthy and brimming with explosive offensive talent, led by All Universe quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs have scored 23 or more points in every game this year and have allowed 20 or fewer points in all but one game. Mahomes has an insane 16-1 touchdown to interception ratio. The Chiefs are second in the NFL in turnover differential. In short, this is a very, very good, Chiefs team with few glaring weaknesses.

The Jets? Well, that’s a different story. The Jets come into this game missing their top two receivers. The worst offense in football is hobbled by crucial injuries. In the best of circumstances the Jets would have little chance keeping pace with Patrick Mahomes and his cohorts. With Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman out, the Jets are left trying to win with Vyncint Smith, Denzel Mims and Braxton Berrios playing the roles of starting NFL receivers. You know the old saying, don’t bring a knife to a gunfight? Well, in this case the Chiefs are bringing the howitzer and the Jets are bringing the knife, only it’s one of those plastic knives that break off in your hand when you actually try to cut something with it. This just isn’t a fair fight.

Ah well, it is what it is. Yesterday was Halloween, today we get the tricks, or maybe the treats nobody else wanted, like the one dentist’s house that always gives out toothbrushes. It’s the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs in a nightmare of a matchup. Please leave your comments in the section cleverly marked “comments” below. Enjoy the game everybody.
