2011 NFL Predictions & Preview: Kansas City Chiefs 6-10

With the NFL regular season fast approaching, we at SportsUntapped are taking our crystal balls out of storage and examining each team’s full 16-game schedule to prognosticate how the 2011 season will play out. We’ll look at all 32 teams and reveal each one’s final record. Next up: Matt Cassel and the defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs

Last year’s record: 10-6.

Vegas Over/Under on 2011 Regular Season Wins: 7.5.

First four games:
Sept. 11 Buffalo, 1 p.m.
Sept. 18 at Detroit, 1 p.m.
Sept. 25 at San Diego, 4:05 p.m.
Oct. 2 Minnesota, 1 p.m.

The Chiefs will try to get off to another fast start while trying to prove last year’s surprising division championship wasn’t a fluke. I think they probably drop their first two road games and are 2-2 after four games.

Second four games:
Oct. 9 at Indianapolis, 1 p.m.
Oct. 16 BYE
Oct. 23 at Oakland, 4:05 p.m.
Oct. 31 San Diego, 8:30 p.m.
Nov. 6 Miami, 1 p.m.

This looks like another break even stretch and a 4-4 mark midway through the season.

First four games of the second half:
Nov. 13 Denver, 1 p.m.
Nov. 21 at New England, 8:30 p.m.
Nov. 27 Pittsburgh, 8:20 p.m.-x
Dec. 4 at Chicago, 1 p.m.

I can’t see the Chiefs upsetting the Patriots or Steelers, and the visit to Chicago will also be tough. I only see one here and a 5-7 record after 12 games.

Last four games:
Dec. 11 at N.Y. Jets, 1 p.m.
Dec. 18 Green Bay, 1 p.m.
Dec. 24 Oakland, 1 p.m.
Jan. 1 at Denver, 4:15 p.m.

The first place schedule is probably too much for this Chiefs squad — put them down for a 6-10 mark because there’s no way they’re beating the Jets or Packers.
