NFL Predictions Week 4: Chiefs vs Buccaneers Las Vegas Picks, and Preview (Oct 2)

  • We have a delight for Sunday Night Football as Patrick Mahomes visits Tom Brady.
  • Both the Chiefs and the Buccaneers have a 2-1 record following the opening three weeks. 
  • This is the LV Super Bowl replay, which ended with Tampa Bay’s 31-9 win.

These two weeks will be very exhausting for the Buccaneers, who would first host the Green Bay Packers and now the Kansas City Chiefs. Tom Brady squared off with Aaron Rodgers last week, and now, he has Patrick Mahomes across the field. 

Both teams have certain problems with injuries, especially among the wide receivers, but that won’t be an alibi in case they lose.

Game Preview

KC Losing a Nail-Biter Against Colts

Midway through the third period, the Chiefs were up 17-10, yet in the end, they ended up on the losing side, 20-17. Jelani Woods’ touchdown 24 seconds before the end flipped the result handing the guests their first defeat of the year.

A big problem for the Chiefs are the injuries, with several of their pretty important players skipping the practices this week. RB Ronald Jones, DT Chis Jones, WR Mecole Hardman, K Harrison Butker. JuJu and Marquez Valdes-Scantling should be ready to play, but neither is 100% healthy.

It all comes down to the Chiefs’ defense and Mahomes. We need to say that they both have done their part of the job correctly so far, given the circumstances. 

Defense Leading the Way

Tampa Bay allowed 27 points in total over the past three games, with teams like Dallas, New Orleans, and Green Bay as the rivals. The first two clashes were on the road, and even though they lost one at home, Brady and the bunch are cruising according to the plan.

Now about Brady. The Bucs scored 17 points per game. That is not bad, but not stunning as well. He threw for 673 yards and posted three touchdowns so far with one intercepted pass. 

He, too, won’t have the whole receiving corps at his disposal. WR Mike Evans is suspended, Breshad Perriman is out, Julio Jones had limited participation in practices this week, the same as Russell Gage. Chris Godwin should be ready to play, but not at his best. 

Chiefs vs Buccaneers Head to Head

The most recent meeting between these two sides was at the LV Super Bowl, and the Bucs won that game, 31-9. It was Tampa Bay’s sixth win over the Chiefs in the past seven events.

Defenses should dictate the rhythm on the field, and since they are overall playing well, 46 points, which is the totals line here, won’t be reached. There are too many injuries and absences on both sides, and that too will affect the efficiency.
