Listen: Patriots, Chiefs, Carolina discussed on Boston Herald Radio
"So I mean MAC in that game. So the numbers, but he didn't ruin the game. He didn't really affect the game too much. So I don't know if they'll revisit that. And just trust against him. Or do you want to keep? Dwayne are out on the show. Also, keep one of those guys contract contacted do a little bit. I've got this year where chip and then he'll kinda leak out. It's just like an outlet type patchy did against the ten for you pass block on pass block against the chiefs too. So I'm sure he doesn't love that. But if they if they fear the match up on the edge, and they want to keep an extra blocker and very well, Seekonk hausky and Dwayne out helping out chatting with Kevin Duffy here in Boston Herald radio Kevin obviously, the patriots big win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday after one and to start their back to foreign to like they normally do slow start picking up in October two used to get the sense that this is still the favorite to win the AFC. Yes. Could cross 'cause I don't think they can stop the city. So I, and this might be a simplistic yielded. But I think it'll come down to which team has home field advantage. I just put so much stock in that especially with the playoffs. But you gotta go to Kansas City on the road. That's going to be a very difficult game for them to win assuming that Casey offense still intact. Their don't have major in Greece because they're only going to get better too. So I think right now the clear tops. The patriots and the chiefs chiefs currently have home field. We'll see if that changes. But I I really believe whichever team of those two is hosting the AFC championship game. We'll be the one to move on to the Super Bowl in terms of injuries. Looking forward to Sunday, you know, Marcus cannon obviously banged up against the chiefs on Sunday. What's his status going into Sunday's matchup against the bears? Not sure if the bigger sent out injury report, there's actually just the bay. So the pats probably are following soon. But Carrington practices. Feel today. So he's gonna serve he's not gonna play. He hasn't really even gotten to the four stages that can touch the call. So he's going about is everybody else. I think we'll be get to go knocking down. John Simon's didn't play last week. They remain limited. This week goes rise probably still are they'll be listed as questionable. They're probably still technically questionable. But guys like Michelle like on hausky Ataman there on injury report. But I would expect those supplies where does the big individual ups you looking for in this game? Kevin. Definitely Khalil Mack, which we talked. And then I think I'm the only signed the ball. Terry colonists. Probably the explosive player and just watching some of the stuff they did within last week. Then they get the ball. Tune pretty creatively. Conventional place. He took an angle route which James white ground probably ten times for sixty yards. Just because he ran away from Miami linebacker on the place. So I think it's a lack of speed among the patriots linebackers or something that Chicago is gonna do it. Kansas City took advantage of it to an extent Detroit. Did it with kerryon Johnson? So if they're going to try to get matched up with those linebackers, and I don't know if we're gonna be able to stick with him. So that's that that wants to me is is huge. If you can get out of that game without having given up a huge player. Terry collins. I feel good about the patriots chances. But it's WinCo and starts ripping off those fifty yard games in forty eight games. Then they could be in trouble. Patriots beat writer for the Boston Herald. Kevin Duffy can be followed on Twitter at Kevin Duffy before we let you go. Kevin action for Sunday's game against the bears. I'm actually don't have a final score. That'll be close. This is a boring scored twenty seven twenty four Chicago. I don't know. I mean, we should talk Monday. And I was totally wrong. But I would be surprised if patriots win this game easily going away. It's it's gonna be a very wild atmosphere. I'm sure Chicago's a good team. This thing to bear in contention for a playoff berth NFC. So kind of roll over opponent. And that has the they have the weapons on the front sentenced to throw Brady offered them. So we haven't really seen him uncomfortable in a few weeks. I don't think they really face a pass rush since the Jacksonville the testing how I'm interested in how the Orion, and I think it's gonna be tight wire-to-wire. And I could whatever reasons I'm gonna go bears. Coast one already. I think I'm agreeing with you on that. I think it's gonna be tough match up for the patriots. I think that game Sunday night took a lot out of them. I think I took a lot out of the Kansas City. Chiefs be tough to recover against quality opponents that they're both playing on Sunday. Kevin, thanks so much. We'll chat later on. Yeah. Thanks, guys. Thanks, Kevin already. Yeah. Interesting pick there by Kevin. I'm kind of backing him up on that. Because I think that Chicago defense is really good. I think. Last week. It worked was not good last week. But this is the NFL. This is what happens teams from one week to the next time. Very good. And I think when we had Brennan laying on yesterday his point being that the patriots and chiefs that was such an emotional tough win Sunday night, not a huge difference than playing at one o'clock. But still somewhat of a difference that he thinks both teams are going to be you know, maybe sacked a little bit of last name. Yes. I did it get sacked. They were sapped their energies with sap. So with that being said, it's time to give out are we in our NFL predictions going into week seven. I am at nine and sixteen good at all you are thirteen and twelve and Mr. Christian Burgoyne leads fourteen eleven please. Don't let him win this became on here. The first time all year. He's he's lab, right? It's the first one is good. It's not great. But again, I'm nine and sixteen going forward to say go you've won one week of these. Want to go? Six weeks. Whatever use your first weekend. I go the only thing that matters is who's in first place after we teen. So you're so far behind com. Five behind Christian. You terrible. There's so this can weeks left. So check the week. I pick up a win. So technically, if we take the same games, the we can't he likes them out one game. Yeah. Well, you know, what we'll do a different order. How's that sound? I'm not doing it to listen to you till I'm in first place. I don't need to pick the same guys you pay. God. He's in the first place for in suffer first places fancy league. Only two other people in this thing, and I might sucks. Anybody would be again, I would add I've said this. I put an asterisk on last week you both the patriots would lose. So what does it matter if you thought that they would win? So I was more right? No. It's called the point spread and we both have three and a half. We won you and Brandon Lang railing push test. Yes, I say I claim I bought the half point. So what would you buy it from? Oh, yeah. Check is giving you. Where the chatting for Harold radio is in charge of charges the half points. I don't know the games is. I don't wanna know. All right. So I'm getting them fight. Here we go. Let's see. All right patriots at Chicago Bears. The patriots are three and a half point favorite. I'm going with the bears to not only cover the three and a half to win outright. Christian. I have no fantasy value in either of these games. So I'm going to patriots. Okay. At least four I'll take the patriots too. I think they're gonna win by touchdown. Okay. Interesting game. We know Christian will be watching this. Although he says he doesn't watch the NFL. Maybe he'll be watching Grey's anatomy something else instead but Carolina's at Philadelphia. This is an interesting because Phillies three and three Carolina is three and two teams were considered playoff teams going into the season. This big match up in the Philadelphia Eagles are a four and a half point favorite. I like Carolina. This looks like a classic field goal game. Right. Like an ugly game somewhat too good defenses Cam Newton's had a good year, but still can have issues throwing the football. I'm going to go with Carolina. Keep this thing close. I'll take the eagles at home. I think that they are starting to figure things out the chemistry between alshon Jeffery. And Carson Wentz is really starting to pick up. I know that JJ he's not done for the year. So their running game is a little spotty. But actually like having a bunch of different scat backs does for that offense, and is a little bit mobile able to find them. Maybe when he scrambling out of the pocket. Carolina. Something seems odd about them. I'm not sure what's going on. I. They're playing to their strengths right now. One week McCaffrey has fourteen catches next week is none right? It doesn't really make sense. So I I don't necessarily coordinator Turner. So they're trying to adjust to that. Yeah. Guy. So I'll take the eagles. I wonder who Christians gonna what he was a brilliant guy when he had Troy Aikman Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin. And like future hall of famers on the million, man, brilliant guy knowledge on the two of you Daego. It's the Carolina Panthers. All the way the dumpster fire season for the Philadelphia Eagles will continue in funchess will the huge day for Carolina. On your fantasy team on the eagles. Yes. He's on offense. Chris going with Carolina. Carolina house is an interesting game. New Orleans finally getting out of a dome playing on maybe a slower surface at Baltimore. Baltimore is a two and a half point favorite. I love love the ravens in this game. Gimme the ravens. I'll take the ravens to. I I like the ravens at home for one and Sheena seen fell a lot of times when it's good defense against a good offense. The defense some wins that battle and you bench is good. But they're out of adult. Right. So yeah, I didn't hear what the point spread was. I don't really care. I'm going to have Christian. I say important. I don't really kick some golden wallets because I got Ingraham. That's my reasoning Gomo Ingram Ingram has a big day Finola since you got New Orleans and finally the Sunday night match up. It was flexed into a Sunday night game was supposed to be the Rams and forty Niners. And then Jimmy G got hurt. So that's not the Sunday night game in got Scott. Right. So why bother buying I came right? Absolutely. I mean CJ bought veteran. Against poor poor CJ Beathard in one week he faced Aaron Rogers on Monday and Jared Goff on Sunday. You know, this a an average quarterback on Monday and another really tough opponent for the Rams staff to try to take down there. Just kind of like sailing through all of this, right schedules. Yeah. Because they've Sony night games coming up, and I've had so many games. They were the ones that wanted the almost flexed into that. Right.."
