BEST BETS

HA: KC

Matt Patricia's Lions deserve a ton of credit for their strong start and upsets of the Eagles and Chargers, and yes, this one is in Detroit. But let's be honest, guys, the Lions personnel just doesn't stack up in a depth chart comparison to the Chiefs, and Kansas City is going to put up a ton of points on anybody. Can this Lions offense hang with the Chiefs in a shootout, if that's what this becomes? I don't see how.

AA: SEA

Aftter the Seahawks were humbled at home last week by the Saints, they'll be all business headed to the desert for their initial battle with Kliff and Kyler. Pete Carroll's coaching edge over Sean Payton isn't nearly as sizable as the one he should have over the still-green Kingsbury, and though we're a bit concerned about Chandler Jones vs. a shorthanded Seattle O-line, Russell Wilson will don the superman cape if necessary to get the Seahawks pointed back in the right direction ahead of a short week to prepare for a visit from the division-leading Rams Thursday.
