Rob Veno's Power Rating:
Both Kansas City and Buffalo were embarrassed in Week 1. The Bills were trounced by the Jet 48-28. Disappointment abounds, especially from a defense that was expected to be much improved. With the addition of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, plus the return of a healthy Kyle Williams, the defensive line was supposed to drastically improve the stop unit as a whole. One game obviously doesn’t make a season but they’ll need to show drastic improvement as the Chiefs actually have more offensive weapons. Offensively, Ryan Fitzpatrick was once again making poor decisions and turning the ball over. The unit also lost two key links in running back Fred Jackson and wide receiver Dave Nelson. In addition, wide receiver Stevie Johnson continues to be hampered by a groin injury.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs were involved in their own debacle last week losing to the Falcons at home, 40-24. Much like the Bills, KC’s defense was picked apart by Matt Ryan. However, it’s important to note the Chiefs were extremely undermanned. Game changing linebacker Tamba Hali missed the contest due to an NFL imposed suspension. In addition, they’re missing their best cornerback in Brandon Flowers. Hali will definitely be back this week, while they’re hoping to get Flowers back as well. In addition, it makes sense that key players like Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki and Eric Berry needed to get their feet wet after brutal knee injuries from the 2011 season. Finally, in handicapping Week 2 of the NFL it’s crucial to pay attention in detail to what happened in the marketplace. The Jets were a “bet against” team according to the sharp money with the number pushing from -6 to -2.5 last week. Meanwhile, the Falcons were a “bet on” team taking money against the Chiefs. In summation, Buffalo’s showing was much more troubling than the Chiefs considering the opponent. We’ll side with the points this week.
