The Chiefs are massive favorites over the Patriots in Week 15 as Kansas City looks to snap a two-game losing streak.

Isiah Pacheco, Drue Tranquill and Donovan Smith all missed the Week 14 loss to Buffalo, and it looks like at least two of those players are likely to miss this Sunday's contest as well.

Chiefs Injury News: Isiah Pacheco Still Not Practicing

While Tranquill is back at practice alongside Leo Chenal, who missed Wednesday with an illness, the Chiefs are still missing Pacheco and Donovan Smith. Safety Mike Edwards missed Thursday's practice with an illness, though he's expected to play.

If Pacheco and Smith can't go Sunday, it'll be Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Wanya Morris drawing the starts once again.

Both players performed well against Buffalo overall, and Jerick McKinnon helps fill Pacheco's role as well.

That being said, Kansas City needs to win out to have a shot at the No. 1 seed, so it's critical to get as healthy as possible. Having Tranquill back is a big boost, but the Chiefs will miss Pacheco's production should he miss a second straight game.
