VIP Denny the Dog | What have you done for me lately? Have you heard that line before? Whether at work or right at home, it seems the world at times revolves around that well known phrase. And, it’s no different around the NFL.
What have you done for me lately? Have you heard that line before? Whether at work or right at home, it seems the world at times revolves around that well known phrase.
And, it’s no different around the NFL. It seems like yesterday everyone was thrilled with Alex Smith. All I ever heard early in the season was how Smith was playing the best football of his career. People were laughing that some fans would be foolish enough to have called for Patrick Mahomes during the preseason.
Smith and the Chiefs were averaging 32 points per game after the first five weeks of the season. He was one of the main reasons the Chiefs seemed like the team to beat. People were saying KC seemed like one of the few teams in the NFL that could handle the Patriots in the AFC.
Well, Alex, what have you done for your faithful fans lately? The last five games the Chiefs have averaged 19 points per game. Worse yet, the last three games have seen Smith and company average only 12. The calls for first round pick Mahomes have already begun.
It’s a tough league. Just ask Dak Prescott, who was everyone’s hero in Dallas up until Zeke Elliott and Sean Lee disappeared. Now he’s feeling the heat. Still not convinced it’s a, What have you done for me lately NFL world? Go talk to Eli Manning. The two time Super Bowl champion QB has the Giants out of the NFC race at 2-9 and many critics are ready to run him out of New York.

Chiefs -4 at Jets: Everyone is ready to throw Smith to the wolves. But I’m sticking with him, at least for this week. I don’t think Andy Reid will throw Mahomes into the heated playoff battle for his first start. I’m not sure if the Chiefs will be able to win this division but I’m betting they win this game. CHIEFS
