    Prisco's Pick:



    This is a big Week 2 game with the Eagles
    impressing last week in winning at Washington
    and the Chiefs beating up on the Patriots in
    their opener. Playing consecutive road games
    is tough, which the Eagles are doing, and I think
    extra time will help Andy Reid against his former
    team. Chiefs take it.

    Chiefs vs. Eagles: Game Preview

    The Chiefs kickoff the home opener on Sunday afternoon

    The Kansas City Chiefs couldnít have looked any better in last Thursday nightís season opening-victory over the New England.

    The offense racked up 42 points, the most the Patriots have ever allowed under Head Coach Bill Belichick, and 537 total yards, its most since 2006. The defense, meanwhile, held Patriotsí quarterback Tom Brady out of the end zone for just the third time since 2008.

    It was a banner night for Kansas City in what was supposed to be New Englandís Super Bowl celebration, but itís in the rear view mirror as the Chiefs kickoff the home opener on Sunday afternoon against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Itís an interesting matchup between two teams with playoff aspirations, but the initial intrigue is on the sidelines. While theyíve only played once since 2010, the two clubs are about as familiar with one another as any in the league, and it begins at the top.

    Chiefsí Head Coach Andy Reid spent 14 years at the helm in Philadelphia, winning a franchise-high 130 games while leading the Eagles to nine playoff appearances. Reidís Eagles won the sixth-most games in the league under his command.

    When Reid first joined the Eagles in 1999, he signed a quarterback that he was familiar with while an assistant coach in Green Bay: Doug Pederson.

    Pedersonís career as a player under Reid was brief, as it lasted just that one season, but the relationship endured. Following his playing career, Pederson joined the coaching staff in Philadelphia before ultimately following Reid to Kansas City in 2013 to serve as offensive coordinator.

    Three seasons later, Pederson took over as head coach of the Eagles.

    The connections donít stop there. In fact, 16 of Kansas Cityís current coaches either coached or played for the Eagles at some point in their career. That includes Offensive Coordinator Matt Nagy (2010-12) and Special Teams Coordinator Dave Toub (2001-03).

    The familiarity continues beyond the sidelines.

    General Manager Brett Veach spent six years with Philadelphia from 2007-12, in addition to Salary Cap and Legal Executive Chris Shea and Personnel Executive Michael Davis.

    In all, the Chiefs know a thing or two about Philadelphia, and that could serve as an advantage on Sunday, as Reid is 8-3 in his career against former assistants.

    The Eagles are led by second-year quarterback Carson Wentz, who completed 26 of 39 passes for two touchdowns and an interception in Philadelphiaís season-opening victory over Washington.

    Wentz, the second overall selection in last yearís draft, had an up-and-down rookie campaign last season in which he flashed tremendous ability but often made mistakes, evidenced by his 14 interceptions.

    Thatís something to watch on Sunday, as the Chiefs tend to capitalize on their opponentís miscues. Though they didnít force a turnover against New England, Kansas City led the NFL with 33 takeaways last season.

    Turnovers aside, Wentz presents problems defensively, notably because of his rare combination of size and agility. The 6-foot-5, 237 pound signal caller is hard to tackle and is often at his best when the play breaks down. That was on full display last week, when Wentz found wide receiver Nelson Agholor for a 58-yard score after fleeing the pocket. The play was one of three 25-plus yard passing plays for Philadelphia on the day.

    [Keeping Wentz off the field] could prove paramount on Sunday.

    In addition to Agholor, Wentz has a variety of weapons on offense, including tight end Zach Ertz, running back Darren Sproles and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. The 6-foot-3, 218 pound Jeffery is in his first season with Philadelphia after five years with the Chicago Bears and has proven, when healthy, to be one of the better receivers in the league.

    The Chiefs, who lost All-Pro safety Eric Berry for the season to a ruptured Achilles tendon against New England, will rely on their depth to weather Berry’s absence. Philadelphia’s passing attack will be a good test for Kansas City’s shorthanded secondary, as the Eagles like to throw the ball around - Wentz attempted the fifth-most passes in the league last season.

    Offensively, the Chiefs will once again benefit from an extended period of time to study their opponent. Kansas City had all offseason to prepare for New England, and the results were indicative of that. Reid, who is famously effective after a bye week, had three more days to prepare for the Eagles following Thursday night’s win.

    That preparation could be key on Sunday, as Philadelphia’s defense was more than effective last week, holding the Redskins to just 17 points while forcing four turnovers.

    The Chiefs’ ability to score against what looks like a solid Eagles’ defense will once again come down to the performance of their playmakers, specifically wide receiver Tyreek Hill, tight end Travis Kelce and running back Kareem Hunt.

    The Chiefs planned to transition Hill more into the offense this season and it worked seamlessly last week, as the second-year receiver led the Chiefs in catches (7) and yards (133). Hill has developed a reputation for breaking the big play - he’s scored a 65-plus yard touchdown in five-straight regular season games - and the potential is there for him to do so again on Sunday.

    The Eagles gave up 37 passes of over 25 yards last season, tied for the second-most in the league. They surrendered three last week against the Redskins.

    The deep ball could certainly be a factor this week.

    Hunt is looking to build on what was statistically the best debut in NFL history. The rookie running back tallied 246 yards from scrimmage – the most ever in a player's debut– and three touchdowns in his first game as a professional.

    Sunday’s game will be an interesting test for Hunt, as the Eagles saw what he did last week along with the rest of the country. The good news is he doesn’t need to set an NFL record on Sunday, he just needs to remain an effective player out of the backfield both carrying and catching the ball.

    As the victory over the Patriots showed, having a running back that can catch the ball makes an offense infinitely more difficult to defend. Hunt did plenty of that last week, hauling in five catches for 98 yards.

    The man getting the ball to the Chiefs’ playmakers is coming off one of the best games of his career. Quarterback Alex Smith completed 28 of 35 passes for a league-high 368 yards and four touchdowns, winning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.

    It was an outstanding performance from Kansas City’s signal caller, and one he’ll look to carry over into Sunday.

    One thing Smith and the rest of the Chiefs can be certain of is that Arrowhead will be rocking.

    The Chiefs are 12-2 in their last regular season home games and, conversely, Philadelphia won just once on the road last season.

    There’s nothing like the home opener, and if the Chiefs can build on their performance from last week, Arrowhead should have plenty to cheer about on Sunday.

    Game Preview from ESPN.com

    Chiefs' Reid, Eagles' Pederson square off for first time

    The defensive units for Kansas City and Philadelphia face familiar foes Sunday, getting a chance to apply what they learn taking on their own offenses in practices when Chiefs coach Andy Reid and Eagles coach Doug Pederson face each as adversaries for the first time after being long time collaborators.

    "There's nobody you play more than your own defense and you go back and forth with them," Reid said. "You're going to have successful plays against your own defense."

    Pederson served as understudy to Reid first as a player for Green Bay and Philadelphia and later as a coach with the Eagles and Chiefs. The tangled web of relationships between coaches and players mean both sides know much about their adversary.

    "I think more just knowing the people, knowing the personnel, knowing the coaching staff, how they think, how we think is the biggest similarity," Pederson said.

    The challenge for both offenses rests with figure out how to beat defenses that know their tricks.

    Kansas City, fresh off a convincing win on the road at New England, must figure out how to protect Alex Smith and open up running lanes outside for rookie running back Kareem Hunt. The Chiefs offensive line fared well against the Patriots, consistently providing time for Smith to find open receivers.

    Hunt found success on the edges in Week 1. The rookie picked up 11 yards on three inside rushes. Outside the tackles, however, Hunt rushed 14 times for 137 yards.

    "All that stuff starts with those guys up front," Smith said of his offensive line. "They don't always get a ton of the credit but certainly where it all begins for us."

    The Chiefs' offensive line faces a steep challenge against the Eagles' front seven, starting with defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. The Eagles present a tough, physical pressure defense that will test the nimble and athletic Chiefs offensive front. That puts pressure on Smith and his receivers to get rid of the ball quickly.

    "Timing becomes so important," Smith explained. "You've got to be good with the ball in the pocket because these guys are great at making the ball get out."

    When the Eagles have the ball, the biggest battles loom on the edges with tackles Lane Johnson and Jason Peters tasked with protecting quarterback Carson Wentz from pass rusher Justin Houston and Dee Ford.

    But Wentz showed last week he doesn't always need time to make plays down field. Pederson believes his quarterback display newfound maturity against Washington that only comes with experience.

    "Protection wasn't perfect for us last week and he was able to escape the pocket," Pederson said. "He's a lot like Alex in the standpoint he can extend plays with his legs and continues to keep his eyes down field and finish the play."

    Reid understands the comparison between Smith and Wentz and sees the second-year quarterback already putting his own twist on the West Coast offense.

    "I guess there's a little bit of everybody in each person that does this offense, but they all put their own mark on the offense," Reid said. "It looks like he's off to a great start. He's a pretty talented kid."

    The one thing Went must avoid is the left side of the Chiefs defense patrolled by cornerback Marcus Peters. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed only two of eight passes for 24 yards toward Peters' side of the field last week.

    "What they did to that high-powered offense," Pederson said of Kansas City's defensive effort against Brady and the Patriots. "They scored a little bit but at the same time they shut them down when they had to."

    The Chiefs injury picture looks relatively clear. Only defensive tackle Bennie Logan missed practice Wednesday, nursing a knee contusion sustained against the Patriots. The team expects him to play against the Eagles. Left guard Parker Ehinger and linebacker Reggie Ragland continue to participate in practice on a limited base and appear unlikely to play this week.

    Eagles starting cornerback Ronald Darby suffered a dislocated ankle against Washington in week and expects to miss 4-to-6 weeks.
