Good news and bad news, Falcons fans. Good news: There are only two Falcons games standing between us and the off-season. Bad news: The two teams the Falcons have to play quarterbacked by Pat Mahomes and Tom Brady.
The Falcons play arguably their toughest 2020 opponent on Sunday. And to make matters worse, the Chiefs have something to play for this weekend. A win against the Falcons gets the Chiefs the AFC’s top playoff seed. So if you were under the impression that they’d take it easy on the Falcons, you were sadly mistaken.
The Chiefs are currently tabbed as 10.5 point favorites, with the over/under sitting at 54. If you’re surprised that the Chiefs are favored, then let me be the first to welcome you to 2020, where the Falcons are bad at football and we consume absurd amounts of brown liquor just to get through each day.
For what it’s worth, the Falcons are 7-3 against the spread over their last 10 road games and the Chiefs haven’t beat the spread since their Week 8 win over the Jets.
