Chiefs: Patrick Mahomes over 37.5 yards longest completion
Patrick Mahomes is going to be out for blood against the Jacksonville Jaguars after the Kansas City Chiefs lost their Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions to kick off the NFL season. Rest assured, the reigning MVP and two-time Super Bowl champion will do everything in his power to get Kansas City a convincing win. He is likely to try leveraging his big play ability to gash Jacksonville’s stout defense whenever possible and, for Mahomes, a 38-yard completion is a walk in the park. His uncanny acumen for finding open receivers when plays break down is well documented, and even against a defense as good as the Jaguars’, Mahomes should have no problem converting this prop, assuming his pass-catchers show up ready to play.
Jaguars: Travis Etienne over 58.5 rushing yards
The high-flying Jaguars offense has a ton of weapons at Trevor Lawrence’s disposal, so it can be a little easy to forget about the team’s running game. Last week, Jacksonville leaned on Etienne to the tune of 18 carries for 77 yards against the Colts. While Kansas City expects to have Chris Jones back on Sunday, the Jaguars will still undoubtedly give Etienne a fair amount of touches. The Chiefs gave up 118 rushing yards against the Lions and Etienne should be able to get at least half that total.– Adam Stites, Jaguars Wire
