Kansas City bounced back from a disappointing opener by taking down the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 17-9 road victory on Sunday. The game marked the return of tight end Travis Kelce and defensive tackle Chris Jones, both of whom made a big impact in their season debuts. Kelce grabbed four targets for 26 yards and a touchdown while Jones had two QB hits and 1.5 sacks.
Chicago fell 27-17 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and things are already on the verge of spiraling for the team this season. Quarterback Justin Fields went 16-29 for 211 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The second INT was an easy pick-six for Bucs edge rusher Shaq Barrett, putting the final nail in the coffin for the Bears in the fourth quarter.
Kansas City is still revving up its offense and has the chance to get into a rhythm against a Chicago team that is on the brink of yet another disastrous start to a season.
