The Chiefs have had their world shocked by the sudden double murder-suicide of LB Jovan Belcher, but they are going to play this game. Normally speaking, we would be backing the Panthers in this one, but in the end, emotions are just a tremendous part of the game. Remember when the Indianapolis Colts went on a tear and released all of the “Chuck Strong” stuff? There’s a good reason for that. When QB Brett Favre’s father died, same thing. We just see it too often. Players just kick that little extra into it to become relative superhuman when tragedy strikes. Yes, the Kansas City offense is just absolutely terrible, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t still a team full of professionals. Head Coach Romeo Crennel knows that he is coaching for his job down the stretch this year as well, and he’ll really consider this a vital game to win against the Panthers to boot. Don’t be shocked if RB Jamaal Charles has a massive day against a Carolina team that is going to likely be missing its top rusher as well in RB Jonathan Stewart.
Panthers @ Chiefs Pick: Kansas City Chiefs +3
Carolina @ Kansas City Score Prediction: Kansas City 20 – Carolina 17
