Too typically, Ok.C. sprints out to a commanding lead, although chalk gamers too incessantly discover the outcomes disappointing. The Chiefs are marking time whereas sustaining the AFC West lead. No sturdy feeling, both method.

Steelers (+2.5) over RAVENS

Lengthy a bloodthirsty rivalry, there are not any indicators of any slacking of depth. Our sustained concern in regards to the Ravens is their sample of expending extreme portions of vitality within the early going. Shut name!
