It's Friday, and we haven't seen our weekly NFL thread yet, so I figured I'd start one.
I'm going to the Chiefs/Bengals game this year. Apparently, it's going to be more dangerous than I thought. From what I heard, after Jumpy Jr.'s brutal, late hit on Trent Green in last season's game, there were several Bengals fans who were treated roughly at the stadium. Beer poured on them, food and trash thrown at them. In light of that, I probably won't wear my Houshmandzadeh jersey (complete with clip-on braid). I'll go with my 1989 AFC Champs shirt instead.
Anyway, I think the Chiefs will put up their highest point total of the season -- 35 (gasp) -- and still lose by 10. Yes, the Chiefs' pass defense is ranked 5th, but that's more a function of their opposition up to this point (Chicago, Minnesota, a still-adjusting San Diego, Houston, Jacksonville). They haven't faced an aerial attack like the Bengals' yet. I don't think they're up to the challenge. I do, however, think Larry Johnson is a threat to break 200 yards with three TDs.
