Facing the Panthers should be a good test for the Chiefs this evening, as both teams are coming of tremendous 2013 campaigns. The Panthers are loaded on the defensive sid of the ball, especially within their front seven. Guys like Greg Hardy, Charles Johnson, and Luke Kuechly are All-Pro players, so the first team offensive line will have a big task at hand for the first two quarters of the game.
For our Mizzou fans out there, we cannot forget about Kony Ealy, the Panthers first pick in this years draft. Ealy was a standout for the Tigers last season and for most of us, this will be our first chance to see him in NFL action. I’ll certainly be watching for him.

Bold Prediction For Tonight’s Game hat
Last week, I predicted that the Chiefs would have at least one special teams return and I was dead on when rookie running back, De’Anthony Thomas had a tremendous punt return late in the first quarter.
This week, I’ll predict that the Chiefs score a touchdown on their opening drive of the game. After a very sloppy start against the Bengals last Thursday, Alex Smith and company will be looking to have some perfect plays and I feel they’ll take it down the field for a touchdown scoring drive.
Both starting units should see time well into the second quarter and like I mentioned before, this should be a great test. As always, lets just hope for good health and a good game.
