Stephen Nover's NFL Monday Night Blockbuster
(NFL) Philadelphia vs. Kansas City, 11/20/2023 8:15 PM, Score: 21 - 17
Point Spread: -2.50 | -117.00 Kansas City (Home)
Result: Loss
The Chiefs beat the Eagles at a neutral site in the Super Bowl and they'll beat them at home. The Chiefs are 11-1 in their last dozen home games.

Kansas City is the healthier team and has the better defense.

It's remarkable how good the Chiefs' defense has gotten. Kansas City ranks No. 2 in scoring defense giving up 15.9 points per game, ranks fourth in fewest yards allowed and is fifth in pass defense.

The Eagles' defense can't match that given their vulnerable secondary. Philadelphia entered this week allowing 19 TD passes, third-worst in the league, while ranking 28th in pass defense.

Jalen Hurts might be the second-best QB in football. But Patrick Mahomes is No. 1. Hurts also will be missing his third-best receiver, injured tight end Dallas Goedert.

Both teams were idle last week. No coach in history has been better off a bye than Andy Reid, who is 21-3 in that role.
