Lastly, what is your score prediction for the game and who is your star of the game?


Patriots 16, Chiefs 10. I like the Chiefs chances in 2017, but I think this first game is going to be too much. If the Chiefs have the star of the game, I’d hope it would be how Marcus Peters covers Brandin Cooks.


I’m actually calling for the upset. I don’t have a lot of rhyme or reason for that, other than the Chiefs may match up against the Patriots better than any other team in the NFL. The early weeks of the season don’t really tell us much, as things will always change. That often means there are more than a few surprises in the first couple of weeks. I’ve got this down as one of them.
