Chiefs @ Panthers: Panthers were up 17-0 heading into halftime before a Chiefs FG made it 17-3. Cam Newton ran for a TD in the 1H and looked like 2015 Cam. Carolina was up 17-6 with 10 mins left in the 4Q before Eric Berry picked off a bad throw from Cam and took it back for 6. The Chiefs finished the comeback after Marcus Peters ripped a reception right out of Kelvin Benjamin’s hands with 30 seconds left to setup the GW field goal. Chiefs +3 & U44 cashed. Tyreke Hill is emerging as a weapon for the Chiefs as a scatback as he had 10 receptions for 89 yards. Cam Newton had season highs in rush attempts (12) and rushing yards (54). Chiefs have now won 17 of their last 19 games straight up. If you teased KC every game since 2015 they would’ve covered their half of the teaser 19 of 25 times (Insert shock face emoji).
Broncos +3 @ Saints: Broncos opened the game up 10-0 after the Saints drove past midfield 3 times but couldn’t score. The Saints’ D kept them in the game more than the offense as Brees threw 2 picks before his defense picked off Siemian to keep the game close. Brees tied the game up 10-10 and completed 9 of 10 passes on his way to doing so. Saints scored 17 unanswered to go up 17-10. Michael Thomas had a rough day as he dropped a pass that led to an INT and then fumbled 2 passes in the 4th. Demaryius Thomas scored a TD midway through the 4th to tie the game at 17. With the score 23-17 Denver, Cooks had an amazing TD catch in double coverage. Then, the craziness ensued on the extra point. Broncos +3 & Under 50 cashed. The Saints D was much improved with Sheldon Rankins and Delvin Breaux back from injury. Devontae Booker led the Broncos with 76 rushing yards and Brees finished with 303 yards + 3 TDs on the Denver D.
