Randall The Handle's Week 8 picks:

BEST BETS

Browns (3-3) at Chiefs (7-0)

LINE: KANSAS CITY by 7½

  • The Chiefs are good, but they aren’t 7-0 good. This team is not built to win by big margins. They have a game-managing quarterback in Alex Smith and what appears to be a strong defence. While Kansas City has yet to lose, Smith has failed to throw for a touchdown in four of his team’s wins. As we head into the fourth Sunday of October, Smith has yet to throw for a touchdown this month. We can’t knock success as K.C. has defeated teams it was supposed to beat. But the pedigree comes into question when the docket includes the Jaguars, two rookie quarterbacks in Terrelle Pryor and Case Keenum, backup Ryan Fitzpatrick and the hapless Giants. The Browns have struggled offensively. They will give veteran QB Jason Campbell his first start this season in an attempt to jumpstart the offence.
