New York Giants (0-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) The Giants are an NFL worst -9 in turnovers, while the Chiefs are an NFL best +9 in turnovers. Therefore, the Chiefs should dominate the turnover battle and win this game right? Well, that’s not necessarily true. Turnover margin tends to be very inconsistent on a week to week (and year to year) basis. For example, teams who win the turnover battle by 4 one week, on average, have a turnover margin of +0.0 the following week.

He simply hasn’t really been tested and, as a result, hasn’t had to make a lot of high risk throws. He’s attempted just 18 of 105 passes more than 10 yards through the air and just 4 more than 20 yards through the air. He also hasn’t completed a single pass outside the hash marks longer than 10 yards downfield al...

Chiefs likely salivating at thought of Giants' miscues

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The hungry Kansas City Chiefs defense must be salivating at the thought of Eli Manning and the turnover-prone New York Giants coming to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

Four Underdog NFL Teams That Will Prosper This Season

Kansas City Chiefs (3-0): The Chiefs are 3-0, shocking to some -- not-so-shocking to some. With the addition of Alex Smith, it doesn't come to a huge surprise that the Chiefs are 3-0. Smith formerly started for the San Francisco 49ers and led them to back-to-back winning seasons in 2011(13-3), and part of last season(8-2).Smith knows how to spread the ball around between Donnie...
