Colts Will Rout Unbeaten Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are the only undefeated team left in the NFL. Will that still be the case on Sunday when they face an Indianapolis Colts squad coming off a bad upset loss?

Not only have the Chiefs started the season 3-0, but they've also shocked bettors by winning all three games as the underdog. Kansas City is coming off their bye week and last played in Week 3 when they rocked San Francisco 31-10 as a 3-point home underdog.

The Chiefs' offense picked apart the 49ers in the win, as Matt Cassel threw for 250 yards with three touchdowns and the tandem of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles rushed for 192 yards and a score. Kansas City outgained the 49ers 457 to 251 yards, while their defense racked up five sacks and an interception.

Indianapolis dropped to 2-2 on the season last week with a 31-28 loss to Jacksonville as a 7-point favorite. Peyton Manning did all he could to lead the Colts to a win with 252 passing yard, two touchdowns, and an interception, but the Colts' defense came up short once again.

Indy's defense ranks near the bottom of the league after four weeks and they've been especially vulnerable against the run, ranking fourth last in the NFL. The Colts' defense could be in for a long day trying to slow down Jones and Charles out of the Chiefs' backfield.

Despite the Chiefs' perfect 3-0 record and the Colts' defensive woes leading to two early-season losses Indianapolis is still a 7-point favorite this weekend. The Colts have won four of their last five versus Kansas City, but the Chiefs are 6-1 ATS in their last seven on the road.

The Chiefs are one of the biggest dogs on the odds for Week 7, with the Colts favored by a touchdown. Three other teams are also 7-point dogs; that trio includes Denver, +7 at Baltimore, Tennessee, +7 at Dallas, and Arizona, +7 versus New Orleans.

The Broncos upset the Titans 26-20 as a 6.5-point underdog last week. Denver continued their pass-heavy attack, as Kyle Orton completed 35-of-50 pass attempts for 341 yards with two touchdowns and a pick.

With Knowshon Moreno downgraded to doubtful again and expected to miss his third straight game due to a hamstring injury the pass-happy offense should continue for the Broncos. This could mean trouble, though, against the Ravens and their No. 1 ranked pass defense.

The Titans need to get Chris Johnson's wheels turning again. Last week against the Broncos Johnson rushed for only 53 yards on 19 carries. In Tennessee's two wins this season Johnson has rushed for 267 yards, while in their two losses he has rushed for only 88 yards.

Johnson could be in a for another disappointing day versus a Dallas defense allowing only 83.7 rushing yards per game so far this season.

The Cardinals made a change at quarterback midway through their 41-10 blowout loss to San Diego last week, and it's going to stick - Derek Anderson is out and rookie Max Hall is in.

Hall completed 8-of-14 pass attempts for 82 yards against the Chargers last week and will be in tough again with Steve Breaston and Early Doucet both out for at least a few weeks. One plus for Hall is that he gets to face a shorthanded Saints secondary that is missing both Darren Sharper and Tracy Porter.
