Heading into the season, Pro Football Focus had the Jets and Chiefs pretty much even when it came to their cornerbacks, with the Jets at 18 and the Chiefs at 19. Their points on the Jets were that Darrelle Revis had a nice year in 2015, but the guy opposite him got burned frequently.

The notes on the Chiefs were that Marcus Peters got picked on a lot, which is true. Peters has had a commotion filled early start to the 2016 season, but he hasn’t looked awful. He allowed DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller to make big plays early last week, but then kept both guys fairly in check when called upon.

Revis has been struggling for New York this season though and this could be great news for the Chiefs. Buster Skrine is on the opposite side of him and used to play for the Saints, so he’s used to getting torched.

"Skrine allowed a 101.1 passer rating into his coverage last season, and Milliner has been a disappointment thus far and is recovering from an Achilles’ tendon injury. Marcus Williams has had limited playing time up until this point."

The safeties are better for Kansas City, with Eric Berry and Ron Parker both playing pretty well so far. New York has Calvin Pryor heading into year two with the team and he is much improved from a year ago.

While the Chiefs’ secondary has struggled early in their first two games, the Jets have given up 54 points so far. That’s all that needs to be said.

Advantage: Kansas City
