After beating a team with just two wins on the road, the Kansas City Chiefs now come home to host a team with just two wins on the season. The Chiefs began the second half of the season off with a 37-21 win at Cleveland now host the Arizona Cardinals from the NFC West Division.
The Cardinals, at 2-6, don’t make it to KC very often as their last appearance here was in 2010. The two teams haven’t played since Dec. 2014. The 2018 season is one of transition for Arizona with a new head coach in Steve Wilks and a new franchise QB in rookie Josh Rosen. Thanks to the efforts of veteran players like Patrick Peterson on defense and WR Larry Fitzgerald on offense the team has been keeping most games close.
This week the Chiefs welcomed back two defensive starters to the practice field, S Daniel Sorenson and All-Pro LB Justin Houston. Sorenson was activated from the injured reserve list this week and is expected to see action on Sunday. Houston was limited in practice but is expected to see some action as of press time. With the Chiefs offense still humming right along posting big numbers each week, having key defensive starters return can only aid the Chiefs in bigger games yet to come this season.
Many long time NFL observers and Missouri residents can tell you that the Arizona Cardinals used to play in St. Louis where the franchise was located until 1987. No matter where the Cardinals call home the Chiefs seem to have success against them. The Chiefs lead the series against the Cardinals 3-1-1 in St. Louis and 5-2 in Arizona. In the last two visits to Arrowhead the Chiefs averaged 40 points a game.
Don’t be surprised on Sunday if the current Chiefs have the same amount of success as they score their second win in a row over a team with just two wins.
That’s What I REID Into It for this week.
