NFL Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs Odds, and Picks (Nov 20)
- The Eagles were on bye in week 10.
- The Chiefs also had their bye week last weekend.
- These teams last met in the Superbowl in February. The Chiefs won 38-35.
The 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles take on the 7-2 Kansas City Chiefs in this rematch of last year’s Superbowl.
How to Watch
The Eagles head into this matchup against the Chiefs with Dallas Goedert their only major injury concern. The 28-year-old tight end is doubtful for this encounter as he is only two weeks into his recovery from a fractured arm, week 13-14 seems like a more realistic timeframe for his return. QB Jalen Hurts was seen in practice this week without the knee brace that he had been sporting for the last 3 games. This is great news for his mobility going into a matchup with a Kansas City team ranked second in points allowed per game.
Despite a relatively quiet season so far, by his own standards, Travis Kelce is still the one to watch for the Chiefs on Monday night. The 6’5, 250lb tight end already has four touchdowns this year along with 597 receiving yards and is integral to the Chiefs’ success. Rookie WR Rashee Rice has had an increasing presence in the offense, with his snap share steadily rising too so he may be one to watch.
Kansas City head into this matchup as slight favorites, and it feels as though their pass defense may be the key to this game. Both sides are elite and could easily return to the Superbowl this year, but I think the Chiefs will edge this encounter.
