On Sunday from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys will be meeting up in NFL activity.
The Chiefs are sitting at 6-2 overall on the year. After losing two straight to the Steelers and Raiders, KC posted a win in their last outing against the Broncos. In that one, Chiefs QB Alex Smith put up 202 yards and one TD on 14-of-31 passing.
So far this year, Smith has managed 2181 yards, 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions, and Kareem Hunt is the leading Chiefs rusher with 763 yards and four scores off 146 attempts. Tops in receiving for Kansas City is Travis Kielce, with 44 catches for 556 yards and four TDs.
Over on the Cowboys’ side, they’re currently 4-3 on the season. Dallas had lost three of four but came back with wins in their last two outings against the 49ers and Redskins. In that Redskins game, Dallas QB Dak Prescott put up 143 yards passing and Ezekiel Elliott had 150 rush yards with two scores.
On the season, Prescott has 1569 yards, 14 touchdowns and four picks, and Elliott leads Dallas with 690 rush yards and six touchdowns. Dez Bryant is the top Cowboys receiver with 366 yards and four touchdowns off 32 receptions.
The Chiefs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games on fieldturf, and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 road games. KC is also 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a straight-up win and 5-1 ATS int her last six games following an ATS win.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS win and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. Dallas is also 1-6 ATS in their last seven games in Week 9 and 0-4 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Kansas City’s normally stout defense has stumbled a bit lately, allowing 30 points or more in two of their last four games. The Chiefs offense has been strong, though, putting up at least 29 points in four of the last five. As for Dallas, they’ve put up at least 30 points in their last four straight games, but have gone just 2-2 in that stretch. The good news is that the Cowboys have allowed just 29 points over their last two combined. In another stroke of good fortune, Dallas was going to be without Ezekiel Elliott for a suspension stretch, starting here, but he's going to be able to play. That’s going to shift a lot of responsibility from Prescott’s way. Still, I like the KC defense to step up here and contain Dallas for a win and cover.
