Colts at Chiefs 10/6/19 - NFL Picks & Predictions

Indianapolis fell to 2-2 on the season following its 31-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Indianapolis fell behind early trailing at one point 24-10 and could not battle back despite scoring 14 fourth quarter points. The Colts played without top receivers T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Half of Indy’s 346 yards of offense did not come until the fourth quarter.
Kansas City remained undefeated following its 34-30 come-from-behind win on the road against the Detroit Lions. Patrick Mahomes did not throw a touchdown pass and ended his streak of consecutive games with two or more touchdown passes at 14 games. However, the Chiefs scored the go-ahead touchdown with only 23 seconds remaining to pull out a hard fought win on the road in a game neither the offense nor defense was 100%.
Indianapolis quarterback Jacoby Brissett has 911 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. Marlon Mack is the leading rusher with 338 yards and three touchdowns.

Indianapolis dug itself a hole on Sunday against Oakland and playing without its top two wide receivers T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess caused the offense to be sluggish. KC will be too much at home for Indy to handle. Final Score Prediction, Kansas City Chiefs win and cover ATS 38-17.
