It turns out picking the team with the better quarterback, head coach and defense was the right play as the Chiefs took down the Dolphins in Germany. The light was shining bright Sunday morning on whether or not the Dolphins were serious. As Logan Roy told his children in Succession, "You are not serious people." The Dolphins really won't face another test until their Christmas Eve game against the Cowboys. It'll be curious to see how they fare the rest of the way n their Canadian Football League style offense. This upcoming week isn't full of very exciting games, if I'm being honest. For that reason, I'm going to call this my bye week and just let Koch's Corner give you the full analysis of this week. Before I leave you to the rest of your weekend, I'll still give you the lock of the week after a narrow victory last week.
LK's Bet of the Week: Arizona Cardinals +1.5 vs Atlanta Falcons
The triumphant return of Kyler Murray is a big factor in me picking the Cardinals this week. The Falcons are the second part of me picking the Cardinals. The Falcons are on a fast track to nowhere with how they're using their weapons and how the defense looks after Grady Jarrett's injury. The last time these two teams played in Arizona was an absolute shootout and the Cardinals won after Matt Bryant missed the game-tying kick. Kyler Murray torched the Falcons for over three hundred yards and three touchdowns. I think Murray will comeback and be strong throwing the ball. I could understand him not running too much, but the pressure can be taken off with James Conner also coming back from injury. The Falcons offense doesn't scare me in this and I think the Cardinals are live in this spot. Give me the red birds.
Record on the season: 5-4
