NFL Week 2 Picks: No one is picking against the Chiefs

This week it is impossible to find anyone picking the Chargers in an upset. Some teams that win a Super Bowl suffer from what analysts call a “Super Bowl hangover” the next season. While the NFC champions from last season have stumbled out of the gates, the Kansas City Chiefs look capable of winning another […] NFL Week 2 Picks: No one is picking against the Chiefs - Arrowhead Addict - Arrowhead Addict - Kansas City Chiefs - KC Chiefs News, Schedule, Roster and Rumors

Russell Wilson has loftier goals than just winning another Super Bowl

Russell Wilson has been the face of the Seattle Seahawks offense since 2012, when he was drafted in the 3rd round (75th overall) by the team. During his eight-year tenure, the team has only missed the playoffs twice, when he led the Seahawks to a bonkers 43-8 drubbing of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl […] The post Russell Wilson has loftier goals than just winning another Super Bowl appeared first on ClutchPoints.

CBS’ Pete Prisco doubles down on Bengals winning a Super Bowl in the next 10 years

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports “And it wouldn’t surprise me to see them win two Super Bowls.” The Bengals just lost to the Browns, but you wouldn’t know it listening to Pete Prisco. The CBS Sports analyst and noted Bengals supporter has made it clear he’s all in on the Joe Burrow-led Bengals going forward. Earlier this summer, Prisco declared that the Bengals would win a Super Bowl within a next 10 years with Burrow running the show. “In Joe Burrow’s tenure, the Bengals will win a Super Bowl, maybe two,” Prisco said. Despite an 0-2 start this season, Prisco isn’t...

How to watch Falcons - Cowboys in Week 2

It’s two 0-1 teams looking to stay relevant in the NFC. A loss in the first week of the season is not fatal. If you come out of that first week with a laundry list of things you can fix and you do fix them, the rest of the season can proceed quite merrily. See the 2016 Falcons, who rattled off four wins following their Week 1 loss and went on to the Super Bowl. Then there are the Week 1 losses that are a harbinger of things to come. The 2019 Falcons won their Week 2 matchup against the Eagles after a crushing loss to the Vikings in Week 1, but then would lose six straight games and the...

How the Patriots offense will find success against the Seahawks

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Related: Pats Pulpit Podcast: Patriots have a huge challenge against the Seahawks The New England Patriots may not have plenty of familiarity when it comes to going up against the Seattle Seahawks, but they surely are not strangers at game-planning for a defense like the one they will face on Sunday. The Seahawks’ impact, after all, can be found all over the NFL since the team took the league by storm in the early 2010s: built around its legendary “Legion of Boom” secondary, the defense was able to lead Seattle to its first ever Super Bowl win in 2013 and to...

How to watch Chiefs @ Chargers

Photo by Jamie Squire/ The Bolts didn’t have to wait long before their first divisional test. No team wants to play the reigning Super Bowl Champions during the regular season. But when you happen to be in the same division as them, you don’t get much of a choice. The Bolts get the unfortunate task of facing Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in just the second week of the season which also happens to be their home-opener at SoFi Stadium. Both are coming off victories in week one, but Kansas City has had a bit more time to prep and recover due to them playing on opening night. This key...

In a non-pandemic year, this would be a raucous atmosphere as it’s a Super Bowl rematch and Cam Newton is coming to town. Also, these two teams have played nailbiters all three times in Russell Wilson’s career, so it’s a highly anticipated matchup worthy of SNF treatment. There were a lot of unknowns about the Patriots after losing several key players to free agency or COVID-19 opt-outs, but it was business as usual in Week 1 when they beat the Miami Dolphins at...

Silver Minings: Josh Jacobs named ‘Hungriest Player of the Week’

Anyone else craving a Snickers bar? Forget winning a Super Bowl or MVP, this is the coolest thing Josh Jacobs will win. Okay, probably not, but definitely the most unique. After his incredible Week 1 performance, Jacobs was named Snickers’ first “Hungriest Player of the Week” for the 2020 season. Jacobs was unstoppable last week on the road at Carolina, as he finished with 29 touches, 139 yards and three rushing touchdowns. Along with the title comes a special diamond chain that reads “HUNGRY” below the iconic SNICKERS “S” which includes more than 31 carats of 2,374...

They look to take revenge on a rival in front of a national audience. Most football fans outside of the Midwest don’t understand the allure of “The Battle of Ohio”.

Patrick Mahomes Week 1 film review: a mature game against the Texans

If you felt like it was a ho-hum, business-like performance from Patrick Mahomes, you’re correct. It was far from the flashiest performance we have seen from the reigning Super Bowl MVP, and that’s OK. In fact, you might want to get a little more used to it. No — this is not a commentary on the game script. I don’t think the Chiefs are just going to start running the football at the same clip they did against the Houston Texans, and I...
