The 0-7 New York Jets visit Arrowhead Stadium to take on the 6-1 Kansas City Chiefs with revenge on Le’Veon Bell‘s mind.

The 1-7 New York Jets head to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the defending champion 6-1 Kansas City Chiefs.

Where, When, All-Time

It might get ugly. Le’Veon Bell now plays for Andy Reid, which means his revenge against the Jets could come out smelling like roses. He and Clyde Edwards-Helaire make for one of the most feared running back duos in the NFL.

On the other side, La’Mical Perine‘s workload is increasing and will continue to increase the rest of the year.

Odds (Sportsbook)

  • Money line: Chiefs -3000 | Jets +1300
  • Spread: Chiefs -20 (-110) | Jets +20 (-110)
  • Over/Under: 49 (O: -110, U: -110)

The oddsmakers certainly had a fun time with this one. The 20-point spread doesn’t equal the Denver Broncos’ 28-point-favorite contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013, but it’s certainly close.

Bet at your own risk. Nobody should choose the Jets until they prove they’re worthy. Still, 20 points is a crazy number.

Injury Report

New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Week 8 Injury Report

Jamison Crowder practiced on a limited basis Thursday. The problem is that he still felt the groin issue during practice. It led to a did not practice on Friday and a doubtful tag for the game.

Sam Ficken is also doubtful for the game, while Blake Cashman, Bradley McDougald and Breshad Perriman have already been ruled out.

Expect Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith to be out there with young Denzel Mims.

The Chiefs come in much healthier. Tremendous tackle Mitchell Schwartz and wide receiver Sammy Watkins will miss the game.

Keys to the Game

None

To list any official keys to the game is to pretend this will be a game. Sure, it’s the NFL, and anything can happen, but the odds are firmly against that notion.

Offensively, Sam Darnold needs to read things pre-snap. Defensively, a similar bend-but-don’t-break defense we saw against the Buffalo Bills is the key against Patrick Mahomes and company.

Prediction

  • New York Jets 13, Kansas City Chiefs 37

Forget about it. The Jets will start 0-8 for the first time since 1996. It wasn’t until their ninth game, a tilt in Arizona, in which the Jets won their first game of the season.

Adam Gase’s 2020 New York Jets will have to beat the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in order to match Rich Kotite’s squad.
