COFL Expert Analysis COFL Night In America, a special night every week dedicated to the COFL, highlighted by one match up under the lights on the biggest stage for the entire nation to watch. We have a phenomenal match up tonight on the COFL Network 2 pitting the Kansas City Chiefs (1-0) against the New England Patriots (1-0).
The Chiefs come into this game reeling off a come from behind win over Los Angeles 26-22, a game in which many feel they should have lost. What critics need to realize is that is what Coach Jake does, that's what separates him and the Kansas City Chiefs from the rest of the league. They are never out of a game, last night proved that. The Patriots better be aware of that and they better be ready for a game because if they show up flat, this could get ugly and it could get ugly quick.
On the other side of the field you have Coach Dukes and the New England Patriots. In their season-opener they defeated New Orleans 31-10 at the Super Dome. That's an impressive early season road win against a stingy Saints team.
It'll be a pretty simple recipe for the Patriots tonight, don't turn the ball over and you should win. That's a lot easier said than done, but against Coach Jake and the Chiefs, you literally cannot turn the ball over because they will make you pay for it. The Patriots are a pass-happy offense but they need to be smart and efficient. As we type this article we are cringing at what could happen if New England gets too overly aggressive.
For the Chiefs, it's simple, let the game come to them. They are in control of this game already, all they have to do is play their game and wait for New England to make a mistake and once they do they will do what they do best, pounce on them.
Spread: Chiefs -7.5
Players to Watch
Rob Gronkowski (New England Patriots)
Must feed the beast, the beast must eat but in order to eat, he must be fed.
Chiefs Defense (Kansas City Chiefs)
Need a better showing than last night against Los Angeles. Coach Jake and the Chiefs don't give up 22 points a game, that's not them. Better snap out of it quick.
