I’m rolling with the Chiefs here. The Jets have a solid defense, but as much as that’s helpful, it’s still only half the battle as you have to be able to put points on the board and Zach Wilson doesn’t look to be the answer and I’m not sure bringing in Trevor Siemian is the answer either. The Chiefs are just the far better team in this matchup and I look for them to win on the road by double-digits. Lay the points with Kansas City here.
