They've got a winnable game against the pathetic 3-10 Patriots in Week 15 and the schedule doesn't get much more difficult the rest of the way.
Kansas City needs to win out to have any chance at the 1 seed. Can the Chiefs pull it off despite losing three of their last four games?
Chiefs 2023 Schedule: Predicting the Score of Every Game Left
Week 15 - Chiefs @ Patriots - Dec. 17th
Score Prediction: 20-6 Chiefs
I don't see much path to Patriots' points here. Sure, they scored 21 against the Steelers last week, but how often does lightning strike in the same place twice?
Before the Steelers game, New England scored a combined 13 points in three games against the Chargers, Giants and Colts. Not exactly a murderer's row there. This is not only a must-win game for the Chiefs, but I guarantee it's a win.
The Patriots are covered in uncertainty with rumors that Bill Belichick is leaving after this season, while the Chiefs are focused on getting back on top of the AFC.
These are two teams moving in completely opposite directions and I'm more than willing to trust in the Chiefs' body of work over the course of the year.
Chiefs roll on the back of a stellar defensive effort.
