Tonight's Chiefs vs Jets live stream may not be the quarterback matchup that NBC wanted when the schedule came out, but anytime you put Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and (cough) Taylor Swift under the bright lights of prime time in the New York Market, you know the NFL live stream is going to be worth your attention.
First off, yes, Taylor Swift is rumored to be in attendance for this game to cheer on her alleged romantic interest, Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce. So if you are a Swiftie, congrats! If you are not and you are bracing for the many reaction shots of her in a luxury suite, then you’re just going to have to shake, shake, shake it off, and focus on the play on the field.
The Chiefs go into Meadowlands at 2-1 and fresh off a 41-10 blowout against the Bears. Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes is back to his usual ways of tearing up opposing defenses. He’s posted a 99.5 passer rating so far and spread the ball around to just about every one of his receivers. Kansas City has eight receivers with at least seven catches on the year. Compare that to the Jets who have four.
One thing Mahomes is doing more than usual is running the football. He has 103 rushing yards on 16 carries this season. That puts him on a pace to set a new career-high rushing total by 185 yards.
That scrambling ability may come in handy as the Jets’ pass defense is nothing to scoff at. Defensive backs Sauce Gardner, D.J. Reed and Michael Carter all have sub-90 passer ratings when targeted by opposing quarterbacks. Safety Jordan Whitehead still has a share of the league lead with three interceptions, all coming in week one against the Bills.
However, the other side of the football has been getting most of the press. Quarterback Zack Wilson has struggled, to put it kindly, since taking over just four snaps into the season when four-time MVP and future Hall of Famer, Aaron Rodgers went down with a ruptured Achilles. Wilson leads an offense ranked last in the league in both points and yards while his passer rating (57) is the worst in the league. The Jets (1-2) suffered their latest loss of the season last week, falling to the Patriots, 15-10.
Draft Kings has the Chiefs as big 8.5-point road favorites against the Jets. The over/under is 41.5.
