It's the Game of the Week for Denver Broncos fans bored on a bye as the New England Patriots travel to Missouri (not Kansas) to face the Kansas City Chiefs on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

This should be a great game. The Patriots are 2.5-point favorites on the road, and Arrowhead is fired up (going for that world sound record again - the Chiefs gotta win championships in something, I suppose). Both teams were in the playoffs a year ago, and both teams have had sluggish starts in 2014 that they're looking to right in Week 4 (although the Chiefs looked decent in Weeks 2 and 3).
The Chiefs should get a boost with the return of Jamaal Charles, while the Patriots are starting to worry about whether they're seeing the sudden decline of Tom Brady.
Yet the Patriots are favored. There's no counting out a "legend" this early in the season, I suppose.
Still, I've got Chiefs 25 - Patriots 23 in the upset. Who you got?
