Something Has to Give in KC-Chi Clash

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte

Expectations for the Chicago Bears weren’t high entering the 2015 NFL campaign but the same can’t be said for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Shark Bites
  • Jeremy Maclin was the first Chiefs player since 2011 to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving games last week.
  • The OVER is 18-6 in the Bears past 24 road games.
  • The Chiefs failed to score a TD last week, but Cairo Santos was 7/7 on FGs.

Both teams are sitting with identical 1-3 SU records ahead of Week 5’s clash. Chicago has struggled offensively, putting up just 68 points through four weeks while allowing 125, which is considerably worse than K.C. Despite their record, the Chiefs have scored 100 points while allowing 125.

Unsurprisingly, the Chiefs and Bears have only managed a single cover for the backers.

The Monsters of the Midway got a badly needed boost in Week 4’s 22-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders thanks to the return of Jay Cutler. Cutler, who was forced to sit out in Week 3 due to a nagging hamstring injury, picked apart the Raiders secondary for 281 yards on 28-of-43 passing and two touchdowns.

On the flip side, Kansas City’s Alex Smith tossed a season-high 386 yards but it wasn’t enough as the Chiefs fell by a score of 36-21 to Cincinnati thanks to some less than stellar defensive play.
