Good job Em.
One place where I will disagree is that you said the Chiefs have trouble scoring TDs when they get in the red zone. That was true in the last game, but in the first two games, they scored 5 TDs in 5 trips into the red zone. Right now, for the season they are ranked 15th in the NFL at 54.55%. (source) That's not great, but it isn't too bad either.
Keeping in mind that the Giants are giving up 38.3 points per game which is 5 1/2 points more than the second worst defense in the NFL. I don't think the Chiefs will have too much trouble scoring on them.
I couldn't agree with you more. The home crowd needs to get loud (hey, that rhymes!) and the Chiefs front 7 needs to put pressure on Eli and force him into bad throws. It shouldn't be too hard to generate turnovers against them and that will put us in a good position to win.

Pete Prisco also picked the Giants to win and he's almost always wrong. So I feel pretty good about THAT!
