    As fun as that game was, I don't see either of these teams winning it all, especially as the weather gets colder and they run up against tougher defenses and teams with good running games that can shorten the game and keep the offense off the field for long stretches.

    Who are those teams though? Weather, sure, but seems like there are not a lot of good defenses coupled with running games out there right now.

    The Patriots and Bears can give them problems. To a lesser extent the Steelers and Chargers. And of course there’s the Saints.

    I agree that all of those teams can give them problems, but I'm not sure it is because of strong D. Take a look at the Chargers-Chiefs game, Steelers-Chiefs game and Rans-Saints games.

    Dunno. Perhaps Darth Belichick can scheme to limit KC, but if not, I'll take the Chiefs if it turns into a firefight. They have so many weapons with a QB who throws frickin' laser beams. Anyone else in the AFC, I'll take the Chiefs over in a minute.

    I do not think the Bears will beat the Rams, but I hope so. It will be very interesting to see what their defense can do against them.

    If the Browns had a halfway decent kicker earlier this season, they would likely be 6-5.
