Season To Date- 28-31
New England Patriots (11-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (12-4): The fact that this game
is in Kansas City is big.  The Chiefs are much better on defense at home and the crowd
will provide extra energy. Patrick Mahomes was the best quarterback in the NFL this season.
He has his weapons and New England does not have a strong pass rush.  Mahomes and his mobility
is going to cause problems for the Pats.  Bill Belichick is a master at shortening games and slowing
down explosive offenses.  New England keeps it close and slows the pace of the game down, but not quite enough.
Chiefs 30- Patriots 27. 
Los Angeles Rams (13-3) at New Orleans Saints (13-3): The Saints beat the Rams
in New Orleans earlier this season.  The Rams displayed two strengths last week against Dallas
that bodes well for them. First, Ndamukong Suh led the front seven in stuffing a good Dallas ground
game.  Suh had his best game of the season and is capable of another big effort.  Second, they were
relentless with their ground attack.  The Saints will be without Sheldon Rankin.  New Orleans has to be
concerned with their run defense.  The Saints could be vulnerable to play-action passes from Jared Goff.
The Rams will have Aqib Talib for this game and that is significant.  Michael Thomas destroyed LA last time.
Talib will help hold Thomas to a much quieter game.
Rams 27- Saints 24.
