Week 17: Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs - Dec. 31st
Score Prediction: 21-17 Bengals
We've finally reached a point that I predict a loss.
The Chiefs will be in position to rest any starters with nagging injury, coming off short rest following the Raiders game, while Cincinnati will need to win given their slow start to the season.
Can't you imagine it? Cincy wins, the national media declares the Bengals as Super Bowl favorites right before Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs win the AFC once again?
Andy Reid and the Chiefs' brass are too smart to show anything of note in this contest, just weeks before they may face the Bengals in the playoffs.
You can expect a vanilla game plan from Kansas City while Cincy puts the pedal to the metal. The Chiefs will set the Bengals up with various ineffective looks and Joe Burrow will find a way to win this game.
Don't worry, Chiefs fans. The Bengals will win this battle, but the Chiefs will win the war.
